KUALA LUMPUR, 25 November 2021 – Southeast Asia’s largest integrated car e-commerce platform, Carsome has entered a strategic partnership with Southeast Asia’s largest lifestyle tea brand, Tealive, which sees the setting up of Carsome Inspection Points at selected Tealive outlets nationwide.
Consumers can now book a free car inspection at the selected Tealive outlets, where Carsome’s professional vehicle inspectors will conduct a thorough 175-point inspection on their cars in about 30 minutes – as fast as having a cup of bubble tea.
Carsome Co-founder and Group CEO Eric Cheng explained that the collaboration enables both companies to leverage on each other’s expertise and retail presence in diversifying benefits for consumers. “Just as Tealive revolutionized the tea culture, Carsome does the same for the car buying and selling experience through trust, transparency, and technology. This strategic partnership is part of our expansion plans to extend our strategic footprint and reach out to more customers while offering even more convenience,” Cheng said.
Loob Holding Sdn Bhd Founder and CEO Bryan Loo added, “Tealive is excited to be partnering with Carsome as we both are innovative and progressive homegrown brands in our respective fields. Now, our customers can enjoy a refreshing cup of bubble tea while their cars are being inspected. We hope that this partnership will increase traffic to Tealive outlets and diversify our customer base while strengthening brand presence for both Tealive and Carsome.”
Customers who send their cars in for inspection at the Tealive outlets will get a free drink (equivalent to RM7) upon completion. Additionally, the first 30,000 customers will get a RM15 Shopee voucher with a minimum spend of RM30, for first-time users only.
An offer price will be made upon completion of the car inspection; alternatively, customers can also opt to put their cars up for bidding to Carsome’s nationwide network of dealers. Carsome will handle all the paperwork for customers and complete payment in as quick as 1 hour (terms and conditions apply), promising a seamless and hassle-free car-selling process.
