The scheme comes as a nimble solution to support customers and mechanics alike
Shell India, the Indian subsidiary of the global oil giant Shell Lubricants, has partnered with Pitstop, a Bengaluru-based start-up, to enable zero-contact doorstep servicing of vehicles.
The scheme comes as a nimble solution to support customers and mechanics alike. It targets to tackle the growing need for safety and mobility as the nation-wide lockdown eases, minimizing exposure for both consumers and mechanics.
The initiative will create a unique ecosystem comprising of 500 operational vans for doorstep services while creating jobs for mechanics across 20 cities including Delhi-NCR, Bangalore, Pune and Mumbai. All the mechanics will follow relevant safety protocols, including the use of PPE and ensuring that everything is sanitized.
Raman Ojha, Country Head, Shell Lubricants India, said, “The Shell-Pitstop partnership will create a new ecosystem through which consumers will be able to avail Safe Zero-Contact Doorstep services for their cars via an app-based platform”.
The partnership will provide sanitized, zero contact and affordable car service pan-India.
Mihir Mohan, Founder & CEO of Pitstop further added, “ COVID-19 has changed the services industry worldwide. The customer is demanding services at home, and this trend is observing unprecedented growth. We are humbled to serve the society in these special times and are committed to providing quality service. ”
