Elvis Lives! (And He's Making New Fans, Baby)
We often get texts and email from super happy customers. This one stood out because it revealed a little secret we’ve been keeping about the whereabouts of one erstwhile sex symbol.
I’ll let Holly, our customer, take it from here. She writes:
To whom it may concern,
I was stranded on I-95 with a flat tire and came across your website. It was fast and simple to get help when needed. This was the best service I have received in a long time.
Elvis was a pleasure to work with and I was back on the road within 39 min from the time I requested service.
I will be sure to tell family and friends about your service.
Thank you again, Holly J.
We caught up with Holly by phone where she reiterated how helpful and nice Elvis, her service provider from our partner Broadside Assistance, was.
Holly also noted that she first called her insurance company, which quoted her about twice the cost of Urgent.ly at four times the wait. Frustrated, and little scared (it was late and she was alone on the highway with her niece), she used her phone to ping Urgent.ly and “watched the tracker for entertainment while we waited” – that tracker displays on your phone exactly where the tow truck is at all times.
So yah, we’ve got Elvis on the job, and just like in the old days he’s leaving behind ecstatic fans.
Many individuals and local authorities have already jumped on the opportunity to remind users to drive safely. There are even signs popping up on highways to encourage safer driving.
Luckily, there are tools out there to help the tech-obsessed (or the poke-obsessed) improve their driving. One of our favorites is an app called TrueMotion Family! The app analyzes your driving in order to provide you with a score - and insights as to how you drive. It's perfect for parents who want to monitor their teen drivers. The app gives parents the power to see where their kids drive, and produces a 'report card' on their driving in addition to an assessment of whether they were driving distracted (using their cell phone). Plus, families have access to roadside assistance on-demand from right within the TrueMotion app.
I don’t remember Ash, Misty, or Brock driving cars in their quest to be the very best, like no one ever was. And there aren’t vehicles any in PokemonGO. At Urgent.ly, we love the game and just like you, we’re prepared to travel across the land searching far and wide to catch 'em all, but we encourage you to put safety first in your travels! Remember that the power of Pokemon is awesome in augmented reality but automobiles are a powerful tool meant for use in the real world and require optimum focus to operate safely. In a world we must defend, you can start by driving safely, and catch and train ‘em all when you’re not operating a vehicle.
