Enlighten us about Easyfix.in and its vision?

This idea of EASYFix was born out of personal needs. Being a working woman it was a task to take out time to find someone to repair a broken tap or flush. And wasting whatever little valuable time waiting for an unprofessional technician never reaching on time. Moreover living alone in the city there was always an issue of safety. With all these concerns in mind, it led me to think of a concept that bridged the gap. Dwelling on the issue it struck to me that if there can be a cab on call then there definitely can be for a plumber or electrician.

Pan India expansion and to become biggest employer of blue collar services is our vision.

With Indian people still majorly depending on local labours, how do you frame your marketing tactics to shift this mindset?

Our customer is someone who is looking for quality and hassle free services of a plumber, electrician or carpenter. Our prices are competitive and making it an easy choice for our customer to decide; EASYFix vs local player. Many times servicemen from local market tend to quote a lower price as he wants to get the work. But we at EASYFix do not compromise on quality of work for the sake of taking a work. We do not undertake work where we are expected to deliver lower than our quality standards, and hence not the lowest quotation is given but a genuine quotation is given to the customer

The customer is charged on the basis of the rate card and is provided a receipt for the same.
