Truckly FAQs


What is Truckly?

Truckly is a mobile app that connects you to a pick-up and a driver willing to help and looking to make money. We want to utilize pick-up trucks and empower their drivers by offering more creative ways and services that they can offer using their vehicles. Doing so, not only do our drivers have the freedom to choose when to work, but also the freedom to choose the services they would like to offer. So, with Truckly you can request a pick-truck to get anything moved or hauled, a battery jump, tire changing service in the event of a flat and in the event that you run out of gas, Truckly can bring it to you. We also offer Waterless Carwash service that is both eco-friendly and less abrasive on your paint, all with a tap of a few buttons.

The solutions are designed to ‘lift’ dirt off a vehicle paint to help ensure a scratch-free wipe off. It breaks down road grime, while leaving a smooth and protected finish on the paint. Also, the spray-on method eliminates untreated runoff and conserves up to 80 gallons of water per wash.

Estimated time per service:
