AutoExpert, a startup that has taken the vehicle service industry by a storm, brings schedule based vehicle services and repairs right to its customers’ doorstep. With the aim of helping the executive class maintain their vehicles, the company provides full reports on a handy mobile application.
The company has quick repute in the time following its launch and with their valued services and expert technicians it is hardly a surprise. The company valued around $1 million and raised its seed round fund from seven different business tycoons, Pakistan Innovation Foundation, Plan 9, Open Karachi, TIE Karachi, Enterprise Forum Pakistan, Founder Institute and Invest to Innovate, in a single entity, DotZero Ventures.
AutoExpert operates with a fresh mindset providing new methods and innovative routes to old problems. Instead of customers having to go to the workshop AutoExpert brings the workshop to them. This different approach has made them popular with several clients who appreciate the vehicle maintenance schedule.
At the helm of this company is its founder Yasir Jamal Ahmed, an experienced entrepreneur that already has other startup ventures under his belt, namely healthstore and cleanry, and was also a core member and the first employee at the illustrious startup eatoye. Much of the company’s success it owed to its industrious and innovative founder that employs the experience he has acquired working with some of the top brands in the Middle East.
“Pakistan’s startup industry is changing and AutoExpert will be the company that makes the startup ecosystem mature. I see AutoExpert as one of the best startups in terms of the business model and the market demand,” said Yasir Jamal Ahmed, “Our ultimate goal is customer delight and for that purpose we recruit only top rated technicians from all over Karachi. I have a vision to make AutoExpert one of the startups that breaks all the records of monthly growth.”
Being one of the only few travelling automobile workshops available gives AutoExpert a strong edge in the sector. And with its passionate founder, dedicated customer service and unique position in the industry AutoExpert is a startup that is well on its way to achieving all its set goals.
With routine maintenance repairs and oil change services via an automobile workshop on wheels, AutoExpert removes the need for its customers to ever have to go to a vehicle service center. The fact that its technicians are handpicked and fully qualified and trained just adds to strengthening their brand name.
Calling up the company’s services is a straightforward affair with either a direct phone call to set the time and date or a simple online booking form where customers can reserve their days and time slots. Their services also include estimates and quotes where customers can size up the costs needed for their vehicles before calling up the service.
AutoExpert is a quickly rising company for several reasons the main one being that the company aims to bring ease to car care by allowing customers to maintain all their vehicles at all times without ever stepping out of their homes which makes this unique startup a popular and trending subject.
