On-site Car Repair Start-up Wrench Declares Seattle Launch “Total Success”, Plans Immediate Expansion and Added Services

Madrona Ventures Backed Company Validates Revenue
Model and Services Over 1,000 Cars in Summer Season

SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–In May Seattle-based Wrench executed a soft beta launch to test consumer
demand for its new on-site car repair service and to ensure the efficacy
of its innovative solution. After servicing more than a 1,000 cars, the
Company emphatically got its answer and is immediately expanding its
service throughout the greater Seattle-Tacoma-Everett metro area. Wrench
is also preparing to expand its service to other western metro markets
beginning with Phoenix this Fall.

Wrench allows people to schedule their service online or via their app
with upfront fixed price quotes. A Wrench mechanic will perform the
service at the customer’s home or office, saving people on average 2-3
hours of travel and service time. Wrench services all types of cars and
trucks and all mechanics have passed background checks and are ASE
(Automotive Service Excellence) certified.

According to Company co-founder and CEO Edward Petersen; “We learned
from research that as many as 90% of car owners felt inconvenienced by
their periodic trips to franchise shops and dealerships for car
maintenance service. Our launch results confirmed the ready demand for a
new approach. What surprised us was the amount of business particularly
given the limited marketing investment we made
.”

The summer soft launch has helped to guide Management to expand its
product offering. Wrench had initially limited its services to oil
changes, tune-ups and basic brake repair. However due to high demand the
Company has now expanded services to cover almost anything that a shop
or dealership would provide. In addition to the added convenience,
Wrench can also deliver a significant price discount on car repair
particularly when compared to typical charges at dealerships.

Wrench is an innovative on-site car repair service that promises to
disrupt the $150 billion+ car repair industry. All Wrench mechanics go
through background checks and are ASE certified. Wrench is generally
on-par price wise with independent car repair shops and 15-30% less
expensive than the typical service bays of car dealerships. All Wrench
repair work is backed by a 12 month and 12,000 mile guarantee. For more
