Mobile service squad a big hit for Nashua Mobile

Nashua Mobile’s Smart Squad cars are quickly becoming a familiar sight on our roads as every month more people are enjoying the convenience of having cellphone technicians making house calls due to the unique troubleshooting service offered by Nashua Mobile.

If you have a problem with your cellphone, and you are unable to go to a store for help, Nashua Mobile’s Smart Squad will come to you instead. .

Twelve Smart Squad vehicles are operating in Greater Gauteng, Durban, Bloemfontein and Cape Town with a dedicated call centre specialist to set up appointments. The service is free within the central areas covered by the vehicles, with a small call-out fee to cover the costs if the distances are longer.

“The Smart Squads will come to your office or your home and set up your recently purchased smartphone and integrate it with your entire technology eco-system to make sure you are set up and working as quickly as possible,” says Mark Taylor, CEO at Nashua Mobile.

“It’s mostly needed by our newer customers, but it adds value for our existing clients too. From a standing start we have now gone up to 300 call-outs a month and we can handle about 500 a month.”

Although all customers are given expert advice and help with setting up their phones when they initially buy them in store, sometimes people are too busy to stay for that service. Or perhaps they  get home and realise they need help with some other aspects of these increasingly complex devices. That’s exactly why the geeks on wheels are so useful, Taylor says.

“Your new phone will be set up at your office or at home or even while you are on holiday at the coast, so you can get on with the things that are important to you, while we do what is important to us: saving you time, saving you money and putting you first.”
