LOS GATOS, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ServiceUp, the all-in-one car repair solution, has integrated with consumer financing company Wisetack to create the easiest way to pay for a repair. Now, anyone using the ServiceUp app can choose to pay for their service repair via Wisetack financing.
“ServiceUp is building the best customer experience in auto repair,” said Brett Carlson, Co-founder and CEO of ServiceUp. “That includes offering easy, responsible financing for people who need critical repairs but require flexibility with payment terms. In this tight economy, our customers love the ability to access financing for repairs. Now they can get it with one touch in our app — making our service even easier. Partnering with Wisetack made sense for many reasons, but their customer-friendly terms and approach is why we chose them.”
Research shows that 60% of Americans cannot afford an unplanned $500 car repair expense. Putting off critical car repairs puts many drivers and their families at risk. Wisetack gives access to loans up to $15,000*.
“Financing is becoming increasingly important as people tighten up their spending,” said Bobby Tzekin, Co-founder and CEO of Wisetack. “Wisetack’s transparent and easy-to-understand financing helps consumers budget better. We are excited to offer friendly pay-over-time options right in the ServiceUp app.”
