ExxonMobil partners with GoMechanic
ExxonMobil Lubricants Pvt Ltd. has partnered with GoMechanic, a branded network of technologyenabled service centers, as its exclusive lubricant partner to provide complete car care to customers. GoMechanic is an emerging start-up currently offering its services in Delhi NCR and Mumbai. It will expand to Pune, Bengaluru and Hyderabad by the year-end.
Car owners can book services at convenient prices by logging on to the GoMechanic website, the android app or over a call/ WhatsApp. GoMechanic allows people to avail hassle-free, fast, and affordable quality services.
Deepankar Banerjee, Chief Executive Office of ExxonMobil’s lubricants business in India said, “We are constantly on the lookout for disruptive ideas, ideas that solve global problems at a local scale. GoMechanic, which leverages technology to bring transparency in the automobile maintenance and service market, fits into our partnership criteria well.”
The scheduled service offering is priced starting at Rs 1999 and varies depending on the customers’ car model. Customers can opt for a free car pick-up and dropoff service or book an appointment and drive to the GoMechanic partner workshop. GoMechanic enables customers to save more on their service and repair costs than in an authorised service centre. GoMechanic’s asset light model of business and centralised procurement and supply of spare parts are targeted to save on labour and material costs, adding to the customer’s advantage.
“As a brand, our goal is to provide performance and superior quality which our customers across the world enjoy. Our association with GoMechanic as their exclusive lubricant partner will help us reach a larger audience, giving them an opportunity to experience the superior quality of the lubricants that we offer,” Kapil Mittal, Director of Market Development, India, ExxonMobil Lubricants, said.
“We are delighted to have Mobil, a world leader in automotive lubricant technology, on board as our official lubricant partner. Together, we believe, we can provide the most transparent and reliable car repair solution to our customers. With this association we aim to achieve a strong leadership position in the region’s fragmented automobile maintenance and spare parts market, and build a strong foundation for servicing into other geographies,” Kushal Karwa, Co-Founder, GoMechanic, said,
Mobil has also collaborated with GoMechanic to offer a special subscription for UBER drivers across Delhi and Mumbai.
