Long delays, unlimited follow ups, and no trackability. We are sure these are challenges you might often associate with traditional tempo services.
The largely unorganized logistics market, especially of three-wheeler tempos, is often complicated for clients. More so for individual users looking to hire tempos for one-off uses, like transporting a piece of furniture, sending a bunch of files, or even a suitcase – practically anything that cannot fit in a taxi perhaps!
Personal users not only find it difficult to find reliable tempo services online, but also have to deal with unprofessional drivers, vague terms, and unwarranted costs.
That’s where Porter’s tempo services come to your rescue. Before we tell you about our tempo service in detail, let’s first look at the broad picture of tempo services for household and individual requirements in India.
Why Rent Tempos for Personal Requirements?
Tempos are the most efficient way of transporting bulky goods in the heavy traffic of cities due to their compact size.
Individual users like you often need to hire tempo for rent to move goods from one part of the city to another, but up until a couple of years ago, finding tempos for such uses was a task in itself!
The Pre-Porter Era of Renting Tempos:
While tempos were always available aplenty in cities, tempo service operators were often wary of picking up such odd jobs without charging a fat fee.
The demand-supply gap was huge, and even if you managed to find a tempo service operator at an agreeable rate, other factors like the safety of goods and delivery time were nagging points of concern.
How do Porter Tempo Services work?
The past couple of years have seen a significant reduction in this gap, with tempo services now available online due to the emergence of supply chain-focussed companies like Porter.
The supply of tempo for rent to cater to personal logistical requirements is steadily increasing in metro cities, and Porter has been at the forefront of this revolution. Being India’s largest marketplace for hiring intra-city commercial vehicles, our app allows you to rent tempos from a partner pool of over 3 lakh drivers in just a few minutes with clear visibility on cost and charges.
