ExxonMobil partners with GoMechanic as their official lubricant partner
ExxonMobil Lubricants Pvt Ltd. has partnered with GoMechanic – a branded network of technology-enabled service centers – as their exclusive lubricant partner to provide complete car care to customers. GoMechanic is an emerging startup currently offering their services in Delhi NCR & Mumbai and plans to further expand to Pune, Bengaluru and Hyderabad by the end of 2018.
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.
Speaking on the partnership, Deepankar Banerjee, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) 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 drop-off service or book an appointment and drive to the GoMechanic partner workshop. GoMechanic enables customers to save more on their service and repair costs as compared to an authorized service centre. Gomechanic’s asset light model of business and centralized 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”, said Kapil Mittal, Director of Market Development – India for ExxonMobil Lubricants Pvt. Ltd.
Kushal Karwa, Co-Founder, GoMechanic, 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 repairs solution to our customers. With this association we aim to achieve a strong leadership position in the region’s fragmented automobile maintenance & spare parts market, and build a strong foundation for servicing into other geographies.”
Mobil has also collaborated with GoMechanic to offer a special subscription for UBER drivers across Delhi and Mumbai.
