Reco, a Dubai-based start-up, wants to become the Uber or Careem of recovery and roadside assistance.
Belal Guidoum, digital marketing manager and “growth hacker” at Reco, told Gulf News that the new on-demand service promises to “save time and money” for motorists by offering them pay-as-you-go recovery assistance with ‘no strings attached’.
After downloading the company’s app from iOS or Google app stores, it uses the method similar to Uber — requesting service only as and when they need it — with no annual fees or monthly charges. Once selected for the desired service, customers can then chose to pay with cash or card. Reco offers services for towing, battery, flat tyre, gasoline, accident towing, mechanical first aid and lockout.
“Once inside the app, customers can choose one of these options and the closest driver, within a 15km radius, will come to your aid. The driver can reach within 15-20 minutes,” he said.
