Nigerian auto-tech and repair startup, Fixit45, has completed its transition into the car-hailing business after signing a partnership deal with Bolt (formerly Taxify).

Fixit45 is making its entrance into the car-hailing market after exiting its parent company, Cars45, to become a standalone firm in the automotive industry.

In the agreement Bolt will offer its car-sharing platform to Fixit45, which will in turn, provide a repair subscription and financing to Bolt drivers, spare parts discounts and tyre services, amongst others.

The Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Fixit45, Justus Obaoye, who confirmed the agreement in a statement, said concerted efforts are being made to fuel the growth of urban and rural economies through ride-hailing business.

In his remark, the Country Manager of Bolt, Femi Akin-Laguda, said: “This partnership will improve the access of our partners to cost-effective autocare, repair financing and so much more.”
