Finding a trustworthy and reliable car workshop or mechanic is like looking for perfect man or woman; it is most likely a rare occasion for some to find their perfect partner. The main problem why we look for a reliable mechanic itâ€™s because we donâ€™t know Jack about servicing our car at the first place.
Now Iâ€™ve been driving for the past 20 years and Iâ€™ve had several â€˜Malaysia Bolehâ€™ cars that frequently need â€˜extremeâ€™ tender loving care. Previously, I used to send my car to my fatherâ€™s regular workshop and later on, I found my favourite workshop which is much more convenient to me. After the second trip, I got to know the mechanic much better but thereâ€™s always a lingering feeling that Iâ€™m being overcharged.
I got to admit that there are always questions of whether my mechanic is the best choice for my car or if Iâ€™m paying the right price. Perhaps the hardest decision is whether the particular repair is really needed. Well. Itâ€™s about time we all need solution to find a workshop that we can trust in terms of quality, skills and transparency in parts pricing. But Iâ€™m not the only person facing this problem and interesting enough, I found out these stats.
Now Iâ€™ll admit that Carama has engaged me to help Malaysians to find a mechanic they can trust and Iâ€™m only doing this because I believe Carama is uniquely different and a solution that will benefit regular car owners who donâ€™t know much about car maintenance and finding the right mechanic.
Carama, which will be officially launching this month, is a web portal designed to act as a trusted source of information for consumers, with the convenience of a one-stop platform to make an informed decision. Car owners can now select workshops based on quality, specialization, convenience, recommendations from experts and/or reviews from fellow car owners. Now I am part of the team to help you find a trusted mechanic.
Carama has provided me with some safety tips that I feel will be worth sharing with you guys especially those who will be travelling back for Raya. Itâ€™s an 8-steps guide self-check to prepare you for any road trip.
So stay tuned for the launch of Carama later this month and do drive safe while you are returning to hometown!
