Ah bless. I'll go with the assumption you're NOT the latest sockpuppet, and advise that tuktuk drivers in Cambodia typically do not do business by email or WhatsApp. The traditional way of securing the regular services of a tuktuk driver is to stick your head out the front door, or gate, and give the chin-lift to one of the many men who will be waving to you, or clapping their hands at you, or yelling "tuk-tuk" accusingly, or already driving at you. If you like the services of that guy, ask for his phone number. Negotiate the price, every time, until he says "up to you" and then pay him according to whatever your last fare was, relative to distance and wait time. Buy him a couple of beers, and you have a loyal friend.

Alternatively, if you like Uber, download PassApp but be aware that your request can be rejected indefinitely if the drivers don't think the fare is worth fighting the traffic at that time. A regular driver is more reliable, but also more expensive. Rule of thumb is $10 per half day, $20 per full day - you can calculate percentages from there.

Just download PassApp and Grab or even Exnet Taxi, I'm doing fine with just this. You can order remorque tuk tuk or just a normal small tuk2 ( usually white, yellow, green and red color , hope you know what i mean). Grab bike also available in Phnom penh now. Most of these app give you a cheaper price rather than the normal clapping hands tuk tuk or waved at you.
