Founded in 2011, RESCUE was started by Prasanna Sivan and Amith Pallipady to give Bangalore’s commuters a quick, on-the-spot alternative to searching for local garages, when they’ve broken down.
Since then we’ve grown leaps and bounds to become a standout performer in the fledgling Roadside Assistance sector in India and as well as a trusted Authorised Service Provider for all the major automobile brands.
We began with a team of 5 mechanics servicing high traffic density areas of Bangalore. In 2012, we added the first car towing vehicle to the existing fleet of RESCUE motorcycles. Then in a series of landmark developments over the next few months, we launched Bangalore’s first two-wheeler flatbed towing truck followed by the first retail Roadside Assistance plans for the city’s commuters.
Today, we are the leading Roadside Assistance providers in Bangalore with a wide, reputed network spanning the city. We are also reputed backend service providers for major automobile brands in the city.
“For the longest time, the breakdown service in Bangalore was unorganised and relied on exploitative operators. Vehicle manufacturers provided road services but with long drawn and opaque processes. Professional roadside assistance, a household concept in the west, and practically non-existent in India. There was a genuine need for a swift and professional private roadside assistance provider and we aimed to fill that void in Bangalore with Rescue” – Prasanna, Founder and CEO, Rescue
