RepairPal and TireMonkey combine with marketing agreement

Jan. 1, 2020
TireMonkey.com has launched a partnership with RepairPal, an online destination for auto repair and maintenance information, to form a one-stop destination for vehicle service needs.

Online enterprises TireMonkey and RepairPal have united to form a “one-stop destination” for vehicle service needs.

By incorporating access to TireMonkey’s U.S. network of distribution centers and installers, RepairPal adds an “important new offering to its set of resources that help consumers make informed decisions about car care,” according to Tully Ryan, TireMonkey’s president and CEO. He says his firm benefits in-turn from RepairPal’s nearly 2 million monthly visitors, and many of them are actively seeking tires.

Under the agreement, RepairPal customers will be now be able to select “tires” as an option, filling a gap in the current list of service offerings.

Along with generating a price estimate for each tire purchase and installation, drivers will be given seamless access to the TireMonkey network, says Ryan. From RepairPal’s site, shoppers can quickly select tires and choose a neighborhood dealer.

“We view RepairPal as the gold standard for online auto repair and maintenance information, so we’re honored to be selected as their online tire e-commerce partner,” Ryan reports. “Uniting our brands goes beyond a business agreement.”

Each company is “committed to taking the stress and uncertainty out of owning and caring for a vehicle, and adding a little more fun to the experience,” he notes.

“Through its nationwide network, TireMonkey ensures a hassle-free tire-buying experience,” says Ryan. “Because TireMonkey’s technology sources tires and installers locally, delivery and installation appointments can be made overnight in most cases. With TireMonkey, consumers can feel confident that they are supporting their local economy while getting a great price,” he adds.

“Trust and transparency are core elements of RepairPal’s customer experience, and in TireMonkey we found a partner that shares these values,” says RepairPal CEO David Sturtz. “Drivers want confidence when they make everyday repair and maintenance decisions about their car. Combining our vehicle-specific and market-specific data with best-in-class partners (such as TireMonkey) allows us to remain a highly trusted and convenient resource for them.”

TireMonkey is owned by TireWare, Inc., which was founded in 2004 to help independent tire dealers and other automotive operations grow and build their businesses through point-of-sale management programs. It harnesses TireWare’s technology to connect local tire distributors and associated retail dealers, aggregating “brick and mortar” locations to support the industry’s supply chain and “give consumers a distinct competitive advantage” when comparing tire and installation prices, according to Ryan.

“Our distributors, retailers and customers are all working as a team toward the same goal – a superior online tire buying experience,” he says.

TireMonkey sponsors NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver Mario Gosselin and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series pilot Martin Truex Jr.

RepairPal delivers free repair estimates via the Internet and through an iPhone application.

It also has the most comprehensive directory of auto repair facilities in the U.S. and a proprietary database of each model’s common problems,” he says.

It has established partnerships with AAA (Northern California, Nevada and Utah), AOL Autos, CustomerLink, www.cars.com, Bosch, AutoNation, and several others
