Karim R says:
“This is an incident which took place where I learned a lot, as my car broke down for the first time in my life. A rat ate my fuel pipe – which resulted in a total loss of fuel and I got stuck at Malad, Infiniti mall, for 5 hours. This could have been avoided if I got my car towed much earlier with StrandD and with Aakash’s help.
Aakash was courteous and followed up every interval with me. Rohan, was amazing to call me and ask me whether I am getting help or not. The answer is yes I was, Aakash was amazing, brilliant, courteous, kind and maintained his composure every second. He is an asset to your company. A person like him should train the new people joining your company. Countless kudos to him. Rohan sir, you have a brilliant company.”
