Lucifer, I think you are getting confused between puncture and service.
For a puncture, all you need is some practice to change the wheel, to first keep moving till the nearest puncture repair shop.
For the experience you mentioned, it is a service break down and definitely not something a puncture specialist will know about. Now, that is unless you were stuck in Hosur road with just a puncture and was waiting for Maruti guys to change the wheel.

Their Modus-Operandi was telemarketing a couple of months back. Someone from them had called (unwanted intrusive marketing call) asking me to subscribe for that service. They provide some ugly sticker too in order to identify the subscription along with self marketing to be stuck on vehicles. Tubeless tyre removal and repair was my first concern too as GTO mentioned, didn't see much use with respect to very little that they offered, hence promptly declined it.
However, I haven't seen a single car or bike here carrying their sticker, so I guess they aren't doing too well as yet.

No!! it was not a puncture offcourse.
But i guess the dealer service will take the same time when solicited for the puncture service.
Lets see how this punturewala service turns out in bangalore.
Hope by the time I return to India, they are not thrown out of business.

i thought you dont need to remove your tyre from the alloy to fix a tubeless puncture. well atleast my tyre shop repair guy dint do that. He inserted that repairing glue like thingie and thats it!
well sticking to the topic.its actually not a bad idea, Imagine you are a woman and stuck in the middle of nowhere (ofcourse in the city) and you have a puncture at around 11 or 12 in the night what will you do? this might help them i feel.I know its not an easy task for them to change a spare unless the woman is malleswari and they obviously wont ask for help from a stranger in the night!!

the customers of Puncturewala.com are People who are stranded with no spare tyre or a punctured spare tyre with another puncture tyre in the car. So chances of the same happening with modern tubeless tyres in normal condition is next to nothing. This also has an initial registration fees which will also deter customers in choosing this facility.
This venture is doomed to fail.
