What problem are you solving?About 60% of the automobile servicing industry in India falls under the unorganized segment. The cost & quality associated with vehicle service are a pain point and a mystery for vehicle owners. Lack of trust & transparency, compromised quality of service and disparity in pricing are the major issues faced by the consumer and eventually, consumers end up compromising on their vehicle’s service.
What is your solution?Autoyaar is unifying this unorganized automobile service industry into a single organized platform and taking the entire automobile servicing experience online. Its an aggregator platform, providing listing and online bookings, for two wheelers & four wheelers. Customers can explore, pick, compare and choose service providers based on locality,make & model of the vehicle & services desired. Detailed profiles with pictures, list of services & facilities, reviews & ratings, help the customer make an informed choice.
Target MarketAutoyaar\’s target audience is anybody and everybody who owns a two or a four wheeler. Currently based in Ahmedabad ( Gujarat ), we will soon expand to other major metro cities in India.
How will you make money?We are looking at monetizing through commission fees from the service providers for online bookings and subscription fees for listings.
Tell us about the market & founders, why is this a great opportunity?The concept of Autoyaar is quite exciting. The automotive after-market servicing business in India is estimated at about $2 bn in 2015 according to CII-ACMA and about 60% of this falls under the unorganised segment. Given the given tremendous gap between demand and supply the opportunity is great for us.Co-founders Details:
