It was in 2014 that Derk Roodhuyzen de Vries accidentally scratched his mother’s car. He thought he would be able to find a good body repair shop online quickly. Fortunately, he couldn’t, because that’s how he came up with the idea to start Fixico – a digital car repair management platform.
The very same year, he teamed up with Mark van Laar to start Fixico. The duo collaborated with certified body repair shops in and around Amsterdam to launch the Fixico app. Currently, the company is active in 6 countries, collaborates with over 2,500 certified body repair shops, and works with more than 150 partners ranging from local rentals to big internationals.
