Go Minivan Startup Helps Auto Mechanic Industry

June 20, 2019—A Minneapolis mom created Go Minivan, an online, web, and mobile, directory to bring better business transparency, traffic, and understanding of the industry, reports the Twin Cities Pioneer Press.

The company shows consumers useful information on auto mechanic prices, daily mechanics and their amenities. It also has past customer reviews with their specific repair and cost so a user can have a better idea of what they might pay.

“Most mechanics are good at what they do with cars, but they often have issues with marketing, customer service or business transparency,” said Linda Xiong, creator of Go Minivan. “I started seeing and appreciating our local auto mechanic and had a desire to bring the industry into a more modern digital age and help drive more traffic to good ones.”

The long-term goal is for people to be able to quickly book a mechanic through the app.
