Car problems, especially as we approach winter, is a huge inconvenience. Some people have AAA when they have car issues or their insurance offers that service but what about those who do not have either? Both services you have to pay for and depending on your budget some are a tad pricey.
I don’t drive regularly, I walk mostly every where however when I do drive I always have anxiety that my car will break down since it’s 4 years old and having some issues. Though I have insurance I don’t really have piece of mind when battling the rough road of Austin, Texas since I don’t know when they are coming to help me, on their way or progress on the repairs. Guess what, they now have an app for that!
SWEETWORXX is a new automotive app available for iOS and Android that offers a solution for car repair and maintenance including vehicle pickup and drop-off. Curently there are some apps on the market already that help connect your car with a repair shop, but no one currently offers complete service from start to finish, including selection of the right repair shop to suit your vehicle’s needs as well as vehicle pickup and delivery service.
Using the SWEETWORXX app allows you to schedule any car repair or maintenance service and one of their professional drivers will pick up your car, take it to a repair shop, get it fixed and bring it back to a destination of your choice fully ready to drive and covered by a 24 month/24,000 miles limited warranty. The entire process can be followed through status updates in the app. SWEETWORXX services includes everything from an oil change and tire rotation to a vehicle inspection and brake replacement.
SWEETWORXX launched in September in south Orange County, Calif. and currently the only city that has their services but they are planning to roll out to other markets very soon.
I downloaded the SWEETWORXX app just to make sure it would be something my readers would be interested even though I don’t live in Orange County and I found the app pretty easy to use. I logged in with my twitter account and filled out very basic information like your car model and licenses plate number. It maybe took 2-3 minutes max to get all set up in their system.
If you are in Orange County and want to check out SWEETWORXX early or count your chickens before they hatch if their services are currently not in your city click here. I personally hope it makes it to the Texas market soon, hopefully before summer of 2017. Summer time in Texas takes a toll on your car and having this service would be useful for us Texans.
