By Digital News Asia December 9, 2021
- The “Own Your Ride” campaign runs from now till 30 April 2022.
- Campaign to benefit over 100,000 Grab driver-partners
Carsome has tied up with Grab to launch the nationwide 'Own Your Ride' campaign, which claims to benefit over 100,000 Grab driver-partners and delivery-partners across Malaysia.
In a statement, the car e-commerce platform said the campaign allows Grab driver-partners and delivery-partners to enjoy purchase discounts of up to RM600, trade-in discounts of RM1,000 and one 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 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,” said Cheng.
Carsome said 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, it added.
“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,” said Rashid Shukor, Grab Malaysia’s director of country operations.
“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,” he added.
The ‘Own Your Ride’ campaign provides additional peace of mind for Grab driver-partners as it comes with an additional one year after-sales service on top of the Carsome Promise package, the company said.
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 one year warranty, five-day money-back guarantee and a fixed price with no hidden fees, Carsome said.
Grab driver-partners can view the offer through the Grab’s Driver Reward Program - GrabBenefits - within the driver app.
The ‘Own Your Ride campaign’ runs from now till April 30.
