11:41 am
this is surprising. oh yeah, it's just a weird. it's a van, ok. alright, well they're here. the guy is friendly enough ... are you with a1? yeah, oh ok. and tries to answer our questions about honk. i only did this a couple times. boss took the call. how does it work? i mean, do they ... we bill them and they pay us. we ask him about his van.. beater truck. ok, so for these easy call? light service, lock outs. within ten minutes of his arrival ... our spare is on. a half hour later ...honk calls to check in. its important that in your moment of need that theres someone that you can speak with and theres someone thats paying attention. honk's ceo was happy to hear about our experience. that is great. that is exactly the way it is supposed to work. one week later ... hissing same
11:42 am
app urgent.ly ... it says we have five drivers nearby. we're given the same price of 65 dollars ... and submit our request for help. 3 minutes later ... the app says a truck has been dispatched. our g-p-s location is a bit off ... so we try to call the driver through the app ... but it doesn't work,. it doesn't give us the company. it doesn't tell us who's coming. 15 minutes after that - the app updates to say badger auto is responding. we call badger auto through the app... and things get confusing. oh you've neer badger auto hasn't sent anyone. it said provider confirmed though, that's so bizarre. it has been one hour and as far as we know, urgent.ly has not dispatched a driver yet to come and get us. one good thing about urgent.ly ... is you can text their dispatcher. we message her ... and she makes another call. are you the owner? thank you for coming out. i really appreciate it. 80 minutes after placing our request ... brian from badger auto arrives. so had you even ever heard of this app? no. brian says this
11:43 am
call from urgent.ly and his staff was confused. he says he would have sent someone sooner if we'd called him directly. he's friendly and changes our tire quickly. our average response times are about 20 minutes. upon hearing about our experience ... urgent.ly is surprised and apologetic. while it's not an ideal situation what you faced it's definitely not the norm and something we work towards fixing. urgent.ly looked into what went wrong with our call ... and says error. they actually refunded our money and say a change in training has been made. now, as for whether using these apps is less expensive than having roadside assistance through your insurance, that depends on how often you need roadside assistance. a1 auto tells me had i called them directly ... they would have charged me 45 dollars instead of 65. and badger auto said it would have charged me 25 dollars. i'm jenna sachs, contact 6.
