In India, most air-conditioners with a good ISEER Rating are exorbitantly expensive and seen as a luxury product for a larger part of our community. The founder Vedang Khetawat had a similar mindset and he came with a solution in the form of 999services where the Customers get the most affordable refurbished AC buying and AC servicing options available in the market. It provides access to ‘hard-to-find-services’ at affordable prices.
The story began when the world along with India was locked in during the corona-virus pandemic in April 2020. From early in his life, Vedang Khetawat, Founder & CEO at 999services.com was especially intrigued by how air conditioners worked, and that it should be an essential commodity. He began to uncover the current skewed industrial approach of servicing air conditioners and refurbishing old/rejected air-conditioners. He wanted to create a transparent system of purchasing products, and services online to save the intermediary cost and transfer the benefit to his consumers. He decided the best way to fix this, was to get his own hands dirty. That’s how 999services was born. After fully streamlining the process, getting a determined team on board, and spending all the money on providing the best service at every day affordable prices, the biggest mission is to offer reliable services at extremely economical prices whilst satisfying the customer to the fullest. 999services is walking the road map where a customer earns value for money at every day affordable prices.
It’s been 2 months since inception, and this 999services, an e-commerce business platform for refurbished air-condoners, and services have already serviced 1064 air-conditioners and sold over 504 refurbished air-conditioners. This is the first time of its kind in India.
