GoCar Malaysia today announced the GOLADIES campaign offering free GoCar Garage trials with upgrade options to encourage more women drivers to experience the benefits of its one-stop digital car service and maintenance solution.
Available via the GoCar App, the seamless end-to-end platform with its transparent pricing structures can help enable women to confidently take control of all their car care needs without having to worry about hidden charges or surprise costs.
Service for free with upgrade options and free delivery for GOLADIES
Through the campaign, the first 300 women customers to apply the relevant promo codes via the GoCar mobile app will receive a free or upgradable pit-stop oil change service. GoCar Garage uses only premium Total or Shell branded oils.
The respective promo codes are as follows:
- “PITSTOP1” for Mineral Oil service package, totally free (normal price RM98)
- “PITSTOP2” for Semi-Synthetic Oil service package for only RM30 (normal price RM128)
- “PITSTOP3” for Fully-Synthetic Oil service package for only RM100 (normal price RM198)
They can also enjoy having their car serviced without needing to take time off work or leave their homes, as GoCar is offering free GoValet door-to-door delivery for the campaign.
Other benefits include free two-hour use of a GoCar vehicle, free car wash and sanitisation and a free 31-point vehicle inspection to help ensure their car is in tip-top condition.
The one-time-only promo codes must be used between 21st October and 30th November 2021 but customers will have until 31st December 2021 to redeem their service appointments.
The GOLADIES campaign is available only for the Klang Valley. Vehicles will be serviced at the GoCar Garage Hub in Petaling Jaya.
Car servicing at your fingertips; no hidden charges, no surprises
“GoCar Garage is the latest offering in our increasing focus on mobility-as-a-service to harness technology to improve customer experiences. We understand that car servicing is generally not an enjoyable experience and the prospect of unexpected costs can be unsettling. For women, there also tends to be greater concerns about being overcharged or taken advantage of, which is why our GoCar Garage solution is ideal for them,” said Wong Hoe Mun, CEO of GoCar Malaysia.
“With our seamless end-to-end platform, they can complete the entire car servicing process with just their mobile phones. Furthermore, they can be assured of OEM-level service excellence as our technicians are trained to work on any make and model of passenger vehicle.”
“More importantly, we are the only third-party car service centre to provide upfront quotations for pre-approval so they can rest assured of full transparency in our pricing,” he added.
Through the GoCar mobile app, customers can easily schedule and confirm their service appointments, select or request required services, make payments and arrange for door-to-door delivery, anytime and from anywhere.
In addition to the 45-minute oil change, other services include battery inspection and replacement, tyre services, air conditioning repair and maintenance, brake repair and maintenance, engine cooling system and replacement, electrical diagnosis as well as body and paint repairs.
The mobile app tracks all requested services and generates quotations to mitigate any possibilities of unapproved mark-ups. Furthermore, these cost breakdowns will only be generated if the technicians think a procedure is required after inspection. Work will only begin after customers give their confirmation and approval.
