MisterTyre Sdn Bhd (MisterTyre) has entered into a fleet maintenance collaboration with Hertz & Thrifty Car Rental, operated by Sime Darby Rent A Car Sdn Bhd under license from Hertz Global Holdings Inc., for over 3,500 cars.
In Klang Valley, drivers can now book “Rescue Services” through the MisterTyre app on any smartphone to get their flat tyre and battery fixed. Drivers can also track their dedicated rescue vehicle on their smartphone via the MisterTyre mobile app and chat with the technician as required.
Mr Dennis Melka, MisterTyre’s President & Founder, said “We are excited to work with and have the opportunity to service the Hertz & Thrifty Malaysian fleet. This collaboration significantly reduces fleet down-time as our maintenance is provided at the customer’s location in time slots of their preference. In addition to reduced down-time of the vehicle, Hertz & Thrifty will receive laser tyre scans indicating the precise tyre condition on their vehicles making them the only such fleet in Asia to have such safety-oriented information.
Melka added that MisterTyre business model is a significant departure from and very disruptive to the traditional store model for automotive services. Their 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.
