About Us

Our Story

Vehicle repairs and maintenance tasks do not always have to be done in the shop.

NOVO is a San Diego-based startup created by founders, Aziz Mogannam and Ihab Mogannam, that addresses just that. We offer mobile mechanic services that challenge the idea that repairs must be costly, complicated, and inconvenient. Having worked closely with UCSD Basement to create a working vision of a connected platform, our team is committed to enriching the customer experience by taking the chore out of vehicle repairs and maintenance to make the automotive world a little easier to navigate.

With support from UCSD alumni and our community, the NOVO team developed mobile applications to seamlessly connect experienced mechanics to new and existing customers to deliver quality service throughout the San Diego locale as well as its neighboring communities.

According to a study conducted by travel-services giant AAA, the average auto repair bill comes to between $500 and $600 — and 1 in 3 motorists cannot pay without incurring debt. Without a shop or physical location, our business model maintains the low overhead that our company prides itself in, so that we can pursue bigger and better things—like the quality service we strive to deliver to our customers. With NOVO, the cost of routine services and maintenance like an oil change or tire rotation is on average 40% less than what is offered on the market.

Come see for yourself—NOVO is delighted and proud to announce the release of the NOVO Mechanic and NOVO Repairs mobile applications are now both live and available for download in the App Store and on Google Play.

Bringing you quality service.
