Skurt, a startup that delivers rental cars, raised $1.3 million from Upfront Ventures and several other companies, including Hipmunk, Wonga and GoodRx, according to a report by TechCrunch.

Skurt works with independent car rental companies that have an excess number of cars that need to be rented. The service picks you up and takes you to your rental car.

Currently, Skurt has access to over 5,000 cars in Los Angeles, Skurt Co-founder Harry Hurst told TechCrunch. The service is only available at Los Angeles International Airport at this point, but is looking to launch at San Francisco International Airport (SFO) soon, according to the report.

Using the app, a Skurt agent will be waiting at the airport and then will take you to your rental car that’s nearby, according to the company website.
