A portal that lets you accessorise your car while you chill at home.
As young men, Arish Sancheti and Shubham Agarwal were ever-enthusiastic about accessorising their rides with high-end car stereos, amplifiers, expensive leather seats, etc. But the task was never easy. One, it’s time consuming and requires several visits to places that sell automobile spare parts and accessories, and two, the entire effort would be futile if the cars ended up at a garage with inexperienced mechanics. “That is when we thought about starting something that would tackle this problem. Not only did we want to be a marketplace for car accessories, but also realised that the key was in providing service at the customer’s doorstep,” Sancheti, 22, explains.
This gave birth to caaryaar.com, a Bengaluru-based online startup for car accessories. Now you can sit at home or work, buy accessories for your car online, and the product will be fitted by mechanics who will come to your given address. “Also, if someone buys from a different e-commerce site but is unable to find a mechanic to fit it, we provide them with the technicians at a certain cost. The fitting service, however, is free for those who buy from our sites,” Sancheti says. While they currently offer their services in Bengaluru, they will be expanding to Chennai next year. But that doesn’t mean they won’t help the city’s flood-affected. “Though there are no specific accessories for flood-hit cars, there are tool kits that come with battery jumpers that will help re-start cars. We also have flood lights (on order) which will help considerably to drive in rains,” he shares. Details: caaryaar.com
