Kenya is a nation of uncelebrated car lovers. With all the cars on our roads, it’s actually surprising someone else hadn’t thought of this; but we don’t mind being the first ones. CarHoot is a tech solution, for a tech-nation full of tech-loving drivers. We take care of all those little (and sometimes not so little) aspects of owning a car in Kenya. Think of all the things you could do if you never had to spend another minute in the garage “supervising” your mechanic, and still keep your car in tiptop shape? Think of all the airtime you could save from calling your friends, family and even exes trying to figure out why your car is making those funny sounds? And honestly, who else needs to know that you accidentally locked your keys in your car again. That is an entirely private matter we can help you deal with privately. All you need is an internet connection, and our app installed on your smartphone. We have literally made it our business to swoop in, just like the coolest heroes in your favourite comic books growing up (Avengers and Batman excluded) and very much save the day!
