October’s arrival marks one year since the Cox Automotive Mobility Group acquired RideKleen, a provider of mobile car care and fixed location fleet services through what the company says are eco-conscious methods.
During the past year, RideKleen has extended its coast-to-coast footprint, now providing 24/7 mobile full-service fleet care across the U.S., including top mobility markets such as Atlanta, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Portland, Ore., San Francisco, New York and surrounding locations.
Operating within the Pivet partner network, RideKleen looks to serve a variety of shared fleet providers, including Getaround, GIG Car Share, Manheim, Enterprise Car Share and Zipcar.
Catering to today’s on-demand culture, chief executive officer Pratik Patel explained that RideKleen can deliver a reliable, safe and clean car care experience to every fleet owner or driver no matter the frequency needed (daily, weekly, monthly) to reduce time out of service and maximize vehicle utilization.
“RideKleen is a mobile car care company, but we’re so much more,” Patel said in a news release.
“We’re an innovation company — disrupting the industry and exciting our customers,” he continued. “We’re a technology company — building new products and services that solve challenging problems for our partners. We’re a conservation company — committed to leaving the world around us better than we found it.”
Aligning with Cox Automotive’s water conversation efforts through Cox Conserves, RideKleen believes it is leading the sustainable car wash movement.
RideKleen leverages steam-cleaning technology that uses less than one gallon of water to wash a vehicle compared to a commercial car wash that uses approximately 30 to 100 gallons per vehicle. The company computed this process has contributed to an estimated 14 million gallons of water conserved since 2013, based on more than 475,000 vehicle washes conducted.
RideKleen also stressed that its commitment to the environment is matched by its dedication to its customer relationships.
To meet partners where their needs are, RideKleen highlighted that it has grown its team of full-time car care and fleet logistics specialists focused on providing a simple, scalable and sustainable way to maintain their vehicle fleets and help optimize utilization.
Using real-time data and analytics, RideKleen’s web portal and innovative mobile technology can deliver efficiencies in scheduling and management for cleaning, inspection and vehicle maintenance for increased transparency with both partners and consumers.
