Today, customers really don’t know which is the best workshop in town, or what really needs to be done to their car, and what is the right price for the same. We are trying to solve this problem by aggregating verified workshops and service providers.”
He further added, “Our app makes it very easy to discover the right solution for your car problem and track real time status as the job is being done. This funding will allow us to build a valuable team with deeper understanding and passion for cars so as to deliver quality service to its customers.”
