Booked my service on the MySyara app. Had my car picked up and serviced with no hassles and dropped off within 4 hours. The price was reasonable considering the service quality and quick turn around time.

Yasir Khan

As a personal trainer my schedule is tight. MySyara helped me schedule car washes while I was training my clients. The service was excellent and was a fan of not being in the usual car wash line.

Arun Tewary

I gave my Nissan Patrol to MySyara 2 days back for some maintenance work. They were so prompt professional and reasonable that it’s hard to believe. Entire operation was carried out by them in a spotless manner, right from picking up my car from my place, regular updates, suggestions and timely job completion and delivery. The team was simply superb, so courteous and friendly. Most definitely I will continue to use the services of MySyara always.

I needed my car battery changed and they sorted everything out for me in a matter of minutes. I was extremely impressed by how transparent they were and how they went out of their way to educate me about the different batteries and their impact on the car.

Their professionalism and honesty is refreshing and is an added bonus to their impeccable service.
