Your Mechanic and Castrol Announce Strategic Partnership
Recently, YourMechanic, the leading national mobile car repair network, and Castrol, a global leader in lubricant technology, announced a five-year agreement in which Castrol is named the exclusive motor oil supplier for YourMechanic. Castrol offers premium motor oil for cars, including synthetic, synthetic blend, high mileage, conventional, and diesel oils.
The partnership is a part of YourMechanic's strategy to collaborate with brands, including suppliers, who share a commitment to delivering quality products and services at a fair price. Under the agreement, Castrol will be the exclusive motor oil provider for YourMechanic's consumer-facing business and business-to-business partners comprised of fleet, dealerships, and ridesharing customers.
"Castrol shares our vision to deliver the highest quality products and services to customers," said Lee Senderov, Vice President and General Manager, North America, YourMechanic. "We are proud to partner with Castrol, a brand with more than a century of expertise and recognition for innovative, high quality products."

"Castrol is a company with deep roots in innovation, quality, and delivering unparalleled results," said Daryl Benton, Head of North America Channel Marketing, Castrol. "We are keen to work with partners who are transforming the automotive industry and look forward to our new partnership with YourMechanic."
In addition to the exclusive supplier relationship, YourMechanic and Castrol will partner on programs aimed to make car repair and maintenance convenient and transparent for car owners. The companies will also collaborate to deliver educational programs for mechanics.
YourMechanic offers car owners the convenience of car maintenance, repair, and diagnostic services at their home or office, seven days a week. A common service the company offers is an oil and filter change, which is recommended for vehicles approximately every 3,000 to 5,000 miles as part of a routine maintenance schedule. Low oil levels or old oil can result in increased friction between moving engine parts, potentially damaging the engine. Car owners are advised to follow their owner's manual for proper vehicle maintenance.
The Castrol product line includes Castrol EDGE , which is comprised of advanced full-synthetic super premium motor oils that offer unsurpassed strength and performance, Castrol GTX, a premium conventional motor oil, Castrol GTX High–Mileage, a premium synthetic blend designed for vehicles with over 75,000 miles, as well as a range of commercial transport lubricants.
