CEO of AutoGenie, Hamza Abbas talked to our team regarding his vision and how it is going to help the Pakistani auto consumers,
With the changing trend of buying and selling things online, general public has become adaptive to such services. As a result of this partnership one can enjoy the convenience of buying his car, maintaining it while he keeps it and selling it when he intends to upgrade, all this through online assistance. On-demand service industry is flourishing just like e-commerce.
