Carrefour proposed in the past interviews, cars with garages located near the parking of large surfaces. This time, the largest representative of the large distribution back in the world of automobile maintenance by the digital path.
22 billions of euros, it is this that represents the market of maintenance and repair automobile each year in France. An enormous figure that does not leave indifferent Carrefour, the leader of the great distribution that intends to become a major player in the digital. A kind of Amazon at the French, since Carrefour has already grabbed some important players such as Rueducommerce.
This time, it is therefore in the motor that launches the French group, who opens the site monauto.fr. Basically, you enter your car model, what you want as a maintenance operation, and Carrefour puts you in touch with 1500 garage partners at prices that are described as 20% lower than what is normally found in the maintenance centre (Midas, Norauto…).
The advantage is that prices are posted in advance on the website and guaranteed. In some large cities, it is even possible to make an appointment with a specialist circuit that will perform the maintenance and repairs (certainly within the limits of what is feasible in mobile) on-site.
