Faraz Saiyed: An Express Opportunity

By James Florence, Diamond Certified Resource Reporter

FREMONT — Tired of long lines and poor service at the DMV, Faraz Saiyed was determined to find a better option. When he did, he couldn’t help but share it with others. “My business partner, Mohammed, and I did insurance before getting into this business,” he recounts. “One day, I went to the DMV to renew my car registration, only to the find the line was about five hours long. Plus, when it finally was my turn, the service was lousy. Mohammed had a similar experience and we were like, ‘There has to be a better way.’ We started looking into it and were surprised to find the DMV had a training program wherein one could actually become an independent DMV service provider. We knew it was a great opportunity, so we did the training and began offering this service to our insurance clients. After a while, we decided we should open our services to the public, so we started Stickr Quickr in 2015.”

Today, as chief operating officer of Stickr Quickr – DMV Express Services, Faraz says his favorite part of his job is exceeding his customers’ expectations. “A lot of times, new customers walk into our office with a frown because they’re expecting it to be like the DMV. However, by the time they leave, they’re usually smiling because of how simple and pleasant the experience was. You might say we’re the ‘brighter side of the DMV.’”

A resident of Mountain View (where he lives with his wife, Christa), Faraz expresses his appreciation for the diversity to be found in the Bay Area. “We have such a great melting pot here,” he affirms. “I’ve traveled all over the United States and nothing compares to it. I love being able to meet people from so many different backgrounds and learn about their cultures.”

Outside of work, Faraz engages in a wide range of pastimes, from outdoor activities to sports. “I enjoy hiking, biking, camping—anything to do with the outdoors,” he affirms. “I also love watching sports. Being from the Bay Area, I’m a big fan of the 49ers and Warriors.” Faraz also enjoys spending time with family (especially his nieces and nephews) and keeping tabs on the world of high tech. “I love technology, so I like to keep up with the latest developments in computing, virtual reality and other areas.”

In regard to his professional career, Faraz espouses the value of providing helpful expertise. “Besides making the DMV process as painless as possible, we want to be a resource of information for our customers,” he explains. “The DMV isn’t known for being responsive, so there are a lot of questions out there that go unanswered. Mohammed and I have taken the time to learn about our industry in order to provide our customers with the information they need.”

When asked the first thing he’d do if he were to retire tomorrow, Faraz replies that he wouldn’t. “I love my job too much. A lot of people wake up in the morning and think, ‘Oh God, I have to go to work,’ but for me it’s the opposite—I look forward to going into the office because I’m excited to help people and learn new things.”

Ask Me Anything!

A: Lahore Karahi in San Francisco. I was raised on Indian and Pakistani food, and they have the best, most authentic Pakistani food I’ve ever had—other than my mom’s cooking, of course!

Q: Do you listen to any podcasts?

  • What To Ask References
    Learn About the Experiences of Alameda County DMV Express Services Clients

    When your goal is to save time and frustration, it’s best to choose a Diamond Certified DMV express service because all certified companies have passed an in-depth ratings process that most other companies can’t pass.

    If you want quality from express DMV services in Alameda County and the greater Bay Area, you can have confidence choosing a Diamond Certified company. Diamond Certified reports are available online for all certified companies. And you’ll never be fooled by fake reviews. That’s because all research is performed in live telephone interviews of actual customers.

    If you can’t find a Diamond Certified company within reach, you’ll have to do some research on your own. If you do, it’s wise to call some references provided by your chosen provider. Keep in mind, though, that references provided to you by companies are not equal in value to the large random sample of customers surveyed during the Diamond Certified ratings process.

    That’s because references given to customers from companies are cherry-picked instead of randomly selected from all their customers. So express DMV services in Oakland, Fremont, Hayward, Berkeley, San Leandro, Alameda, Union City, Pleasanton, Newark, Dublin, Ashland, Castro Valley, Cherryland, Emeryville, Komandorski Village, Livermore, Mount Eden, Piedmont, Russell City, San Lorenzo, or Sunol will likely give you a few customers to call that they know are satisfied.

    If you do call references on your own, specifically ask for a list of the company’s 10 most recent customers or those that faced the same issue or had the same particular needs you have. This will help avoid them giving you the names of only customers they know were satisfied.

    Then make some reference phone calls and ask the following questions.

    • Were you satisfied with the service from _(Alameda County DMV express company name)_?
    • What was the type and scope of service they provided for you (driver’s license renewal, license plate replacement, license plate sticker services, DMV registration or renewal, DMV registration replacement, title transfer, salvage vehicle revival, junk certificate, VIN verification, duplicate title order services, etc.)?
    • Were the staff prompt and personable?
    • Did they keep you informed about the status of your DMV registration renewal or replacement or other services?
    • Did they complete the work in the time frame promised?
    • Were there unexpected costs? If so, what were they for and were they avoidable?
    • Did the Alameda County DMV express company charge extra for any of the services you needed, such as late expired DMV registration renewal, expired license renewal sticker replacement, or other services? If so, did you know about the additional charge before the services was completed?
    • Would you recommend this DMV express service to friends or family?
    • When you need DMV registration renewal or replacement, license and sticker replacement, title transfers, VIN verification or other DMV services in the future, will you hire this DMV express service again?

  • How To Work With
    How to Get Alameda County DMV Express Services to Want to Help You

    You’re smart to want to save time waiting in line at the DMV by going instead to an express DMV service or using online DMV services.

    But keep in mind that while you’re doing your best to save yourself frustration and time, local businesses in San Leandro, Berkeley, Hayward, Fremont and Oakland and other areas in Alameda County want to minimize frustration and make the most of their time by working with clients who are honest, fair, easy to work with, and a pleasure to serve.

    There are a few easy things you can do to help your express DMV services go even faster and more smoothly, and be the kind of customer that companies like to serve.

    ·      Prove your interest in value, not just cheap services. Price is important, but choosing a company based on expertise, ability, service record, reliability, professionalism, and expected outcome is a better way to choose a DMV express service. It is fair to ask about rates and fees, but be sure you’re also considering quality and doing your due diligence to be a good client who deserves quality services and good value.

    ·      Be honest if you’re shopping around for bids and services, and don’t make appointments you don’t intend to keep. Most Alameda County DMV service providers understand that customers have a right to find the company that best suits their needs, but they are usually too busy to cater to clients who use their time without an honest intention to get information and make an educated decision.

    ·      Be clear about what services you need and any impediments that may impact the service. This will allow your DMV express service to give you the most accurate bid possible. It also gives them insight into exactly what you need, expect, and can tell them about the job at hand. If they can’t provide what you need or want, or if the DMV renewal or replacement services will be hard to perform, it’s better to find out before you’ve wasted your time and theirs.

    What To Do Once You’ve Found a DMV Service That Meets Your Needs
    Once you’ve found an express DMV service in Alameda County, whether it’s in Pleasanton, Berkeley, Union City, San Leandro and Alameda or beyond, that can provide the services you need and meet your expectations and you’ve confirmed that it’s possible to get the services you need from an external express DMV location or online DMV express company, it’s time to move forward.

    Make an appointment if necessary, know what you need and want to accomplish, bring or have handy any required proof or paperwork, have payment ready, and then work with your DMV express representative to get the replacement or renewal documents or items you need.

    In most cases, the services will go quickly and you’ll have your new or replacement registration, license plates, stickers or other items when you walk out the door or receive them in the mail within a few days.
