AutoX started with a vision to have an impact on people’s life from the very beginning by offering vehicle services at doorstep to enable people spend their precious time on things that matter to them the most. Over time they realized they are solving only one side of the equation, a lot of really capable service technicians who work on daily wages at different workshops struggle to make ends meet. They focus on getting work every day whereas they should be focusing on improving their skill this creates a supply and demand gap
