Most people can’t assess the cost of vehicle damage and end up being ripped off. My idea is a website where users can upload pictures as well as audio files of their vehicle damage and a trained AI agent determines the cost of repairs. Pictures are also sent to nearby auto repair shops and free quotes are sent to your email within 24 hours.

Who are your biggest competitors? (max 300 characters)

Our biggest competitor is AAA and sites like Repair Pal. Both sites ask for information like your vehicle model & make, as well as your zip code and damages. However, consumers need to know what part of their vehicle is damaged. In addition, there’s no transparency on how quotes are generated.

What makes your idea different? (max 300 characters)

The current process for determining vehicle damage is flawed. There’s no transparency on how quotes are generated and consumers end up overpaying. We’re delivering quotes instantly from a variety of different stores as well as using an intelligent trained AI model to help consumers get a fair price.

Why will your idea be successful? (max 300 characters)

In the state of Michigan, there were 314,921 car crashes in 2017. A majority of those vehicles needed repairs. The average consumer doesn’t have the time to shop around several stores for a quote. They want fast and accurate results and we’re giving it to them, all from the comfort of their home.
