A lot of people using cooking gases can relate with the stress encountered when trying to get a refill. For some, it’s visiting the gas stations and being on (long) queues; while for others (like me), the thought of even carrying the weighty gas cylinder before and after filling — especially when one is not not mobile — is unbearable in itself. Thankfully, GazHub has a solution for this.
Based in Abuja, GazHub is an online platform that specifically helps people get their cooking gas refilled. The platform was co-founded by Nurudeen Othman and Antonio Bruni and officially launched on April 1, 2017.
Besides refilling of cooking gas, GazHub renders other services such as sales of cooking gas cylinders, accessories and general maintenance of gas cookers. As a user, you make your order by first registering on the platform, then you choose your intended product/service and proceed to make payment — using the online payment option or Pay-on-Delivery (PoD). After that, all you need do is relax, while GazHub comes to pick up your cylinder, refill and deliver.
To ensure optimum service, the founders claim they offer their clients standard (same day) and express (90 minutes) delivery services. According to Nurudeen, GazHub provides unique customers service and all clients can in fact, track drivers via their mobile phone. Like every regular business, the startup intends to reach more locations within Abuja and across Nigeria soon.
If you reside in Abuja, you should consider visiting the website to get your next gas refill conveniently.
