KUALA LUMPUR, 8 December 2021 – Southeast Asia’s largest integrated car e-commerce platform Carsome has tied up with Southeast Asia’s leading superapp Grab to launch the nationwide “Own Your Ride” campaign, which seeks to benefit over 100,000 Grab driver-partners and delivery-partners across Malaysia.
The campaign allows Grab driver-partners and delivery-partners to enjoy purchase discounts of up to RM600, trade-in discounts of RM1,000 and 1-year after-sales service when purchasing Carsome Certified cars.
Carsome Co-founder and Group CEO Eric Cheng said that the collaboration is an extension of the company’s aim in helping people move forward with peace of mind in mobility solutions. “We are very excited to join hands with Grab in providing access to Grab driver-partners who are looking for new ways to buy or sell a car. Our Carsome Promise offers them convenience and quality assurance, be it for owning their first car or when upgrading their cars,” Cheng added.
The partnership augurs well with Malaysia slowly opening up its economy, whereby more people are heading out, subsequently increasing the demand for e-hailing services. The COVID-19 pandemic has seen many people turning to become riders or drivers to deliver food and essentials, and the campaign is part of Carsome’s efforts in giving back to frontliners within the local communities.
“As part of our GrabBenefits programme, we listen to our driver and delivery partners, and seek opportunities to work with like-minded corporate partners to offer benefits that matter to them, such as defraying their operating costs as they continue to serve our consumers. This partnership with Carsome will provide our partners with a more attractive option when they source for a new vehicle and one that will help them upkeep the vehicle affordably,” said Grab Malaysia’s Director of Country Operations, Rashid Shukor.
The ‘Own Your Ride’ Campaign provides additional peace of mind for Grab driver-partners as it comes with an additional 1-year after-sales service on top of the Carsome Promise package. Each after-sales service includes the Leichtlauf Performance, 10W40 (4L), OEM Filter, and a 15-Point Check including air filter check, cleaning, and labor charges. The Carsome Promise package, on the other hand, ensures that every car passes a thorough 175-point inspection and comes with a 1-year warranty, 5-day money-back guarantee and a fixed price with no hidden fees.
Grab driver-partners can view the offer through the Grab’s Driver Reward Program – GrabBenefits – within the driver app. From there, all they have to do is save the offer, browse for cars on www.carsome.my, test drive their car of choice, and present the voucher code to Carsome Consultants when making payment to redeem the discount.
The ‘Own Your Ride Campaign’ runs from now till 30 April 2022. Carsome will continuously work on enhancing the customer journey and offering value-added solutions for both customers and partners.
