Everyone’s travel nightmare is definitely the thought of their car breaking down right in the middle of the road, or the expressway; you know, right after indefinite traffic.

But as long as you have a phone, which – let’s face it – we all have, Autosave Roadside Assistance wants to help you make sure that you never have to go through that harrowing experience. It’s frustrating, I know!

“Basically we are mechanics located on lagos roads and towing vehicles parked on the side of the road”, says Popoola Ifeoluwa, one of the founders of the Roadside Assistance Service. But it’s a little deeper than that.

AutoSave allows you request for assistance from a mechanic whenever your car breaks down unexpectedly on Lagos roads and also request for towing if your car can’t be repaired on the spot. The process is straightforward. You could visit the Roadside Assistance and Towing Service website, sign up and get covered for a year (there’s a pricing plan/0 or you call any of our people whenever you need assistance.  Autosave sends a mechanic to where you are and the mechanic fixes your car on the spot, you pay for the services. And if your car can’t be repaired on the spot, they provide you with the towing service so you will not be left stranded.

Autosave Roadside Assistance was founded by Popoola Ifeoluwa, Pheelamillo Ghajiga and Oladele Gbenga. Mobile apps for Android, Java and Blackberry users would roll out soon, to make requesting for assistance even simpler.

Pretty Simple right? Life, Lagos roads and Lagos Traffic will probably throw in a few choice wrenches in practice, but you get the idea.
