nmedia: “How and why did The Remote Man come about?”
murat: “I started out working for large franchise key cutters inside the shopping centres With over 8 years experience in the industry, it’s lead me to want to be my own boss. I love the work that I do.”
nmedia: “How does The Remote Man differ from other similar businesses in your industry?”
murat: “I think the key point of difference for my business has to be that I am Mobile. There are many key cutters around but not too many are flexible to move around like I am. When a customer is stuck at work or just can’t leave the house for the day, my mobile service is ready to take on the task. It’s probably the key factor in why people choose to call me”
