Press Release (ePRNews.com) - KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - Jul 03, 2018 - MisterTyre Sdn Bhd (“MisterTyre”), the world’s only on-demand smartphone app for comprehensive mobile car care delivered at home or work, announces:
▪ Fleet Maintenance Collaboration– MisterTyre is pleased to announce a fleet maintenance collaboration with Hertz& Thrifty Car Rental(https://www.simedarbycarrental.com) for over 3,500 cars. Hertz Malaysia and Thrifty Malaysia are operated by Sime Darby Rent A Car Sdn Bhd under license from Hertz Global Holdings Inc.
▪ Launch of Rescue Services – Drivers in Klang Valley can now book “Rescue Services” via the MisterTyre app on any smartphone to immediately fix their flat tire and battery. Drivers can track their dedicated rescue vehicle on their smartphone via the MisterTyre mobile app and chat with the technician as required. Flat tire repair is charged at a minimal cost of only RM 49.00 and battery replacement service is charged at the battery cost only with no additional service or extra installation fee. Consumer demand for Rescue Services has been strong over the last several weeks of beta testing with Rescue Services now accounting for 10% of daily bookings via the MisterTyre mobile app.
We are excited to launch ‘Rescue Services’ where drivers no longer have to call and wait on the phone during the stressful time of dealing with a flat tyre or dead battery. Within a few seconds of downloading the MisterTyre app, a rescue vehicle is on its way and can be tracked on the MisterTyre app. We also provide a free 15 points inspection and laser tyre scan. The inspection data will help both the customer and MisterTyre to track the next service requirements for key components such as tyre tread depth, brake pads, engine oil service, battery power and many more key data.
Commented Mr. Dennis Melka, MisterTyre’s President & Founder: “We are excited to work with and have the opportunity to service the Hertz & Thrifty Malaysian fleet. We are honoured to be chosen and entrusted with this business. MisterTyre will manage all tire, alignment/rotation, battery, and rescue service for the Hertz and Thrifty fleet. This collaboration significantly reduces fleet downtime as our maintenance is provided at the customer’s location in time slots of their preference. Most jobs are completed on-site within 30 minutes to one hour compared to traditional stores which require several hours or often an entire day of downtime for the vehicle. In addition to reduced downtime of the vehicle, Hertz & Thrifty will receive laser tire scans indicating the precise tire condition on their vehicles making them the only such fleet in Asia to have such safety-oriented information.
MisterTyre’s business model uniquely combines: (i) a proprietary, on-demand app interface simplifying the tire, rim, oil change and battery purchase process; (ii) multiple service lines typically only provided individually in brick and mortar outlets spanning tyre shops, hypermarkets, gas stations, dealer centres and lubricant centres; (iii) revolutionary van outfit design which is able to deliver for the first time ever, directly to the consumer, the most important aftermarket car services; (iv) data capture and predictive analytics; and (v) ancillary income model focused on high margin car consumables and lubricants typically sold in gas stations and specialty auto parts stores. All of these unique operating advantages are combined with the incredible convenience of home or office delivery with service windows from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.
“The MisterTyre business model is a significant departure from and very disruptive to the traditional store model for automotive services. Our business model removes the “middleman” from the supply chain thereby allowing MisterTyre to offer incredible deals with no charge for mobile service whilst empowering consumers to make informed decisions on their automotive repair requirements.
