Ride with Ease with Rideasy.my, Malaysia’s first online car sharing service provider
Rideasy.my, Malaysia’s first online car sharing service provider, today soft-launched their web application at one of KL’s most hottest hangouts, APW Bangsar.
Officiating their soft launch today, Rideasy’s CEO Nizran Kudus and his partner, Rizal Mukti, presented prizes to winners of their survey contest that was held throughout the month of September and October.
The grand prize winner won an all-expense paid trip to Hard Rock Hotel, Penang, inclusive of their ride from Kuala Lumpur. Salawati Binti Usoh, (44) will be heading up north for her trip in December.
“I am extremely happy to have won this prize from Rideasy and am so excited to go on this special trip with my husband…” said Salawati.
Also in attendance was Omar Hatmi, MD of Active Telematics, Rideasy’s telematics partner, gave a presentation on how his company is involved in Rideasy’s online fleet management. Thereafter, Nizran gave a short presentation on what Rideasy is about as well as to premier the company’s corporate video.
Rideasy.my, a Malaysian company that started in August 2016, is a new enterprise that offers a user-friendly, secure and comprehensive online platform for users to share and borrow cars from its community members. For car owners, this will be a good platform to earn some extra income, and as for borrowers, it will be a suitable alternative transportation platform to opt from especially those seeking to be free of financial commitments of owning and maintaining a car.
With Rideasy, borrowers will have a wide selection of vehicles to choose from, such as sedans, MPVs, SUVs and high-end vehicles, all at an affordable price of up to 30% cheaper than normal market rates.
Furthermore, users will have peace-of-mind as all transactions will be contracted with a sharing agreement and via a strategic partnership with Allianz
Insurance, shared vehicle will be protected with 24/7 nationwide breakdown assistance and personal accident coverage.
“This is an exciting new initiative in transportation in Malaysia, but it is the future as more and more young people, especially millennials, are opting to not own a vehicle due to its depreciating value. Our research showed that the younger generation does not place heavy emphasis on asset ownership, and would rather spend on travel and exploring the world. Rideasy aims to fulfill this need by providing vehicles on-demand. They’ll have the possibility of using a vehicle as needed for either a short term or for a longer period of time, whilst being free from having to bear any associated ownership costs such as hire-purchase, maintenance and so on…”, said Mr. Nizran.
