Fuel, insurance, tolls and parking fees keep going up – these costs of owning a vehicle in South Africa are increasing making it difficult for some motorists to sustain owning a car. More car owners are turning to alternate modes of transport, that’s why Uber and CarZar have teamed up to simplify the lives of those wanting to sell their vehicles.
According to a recent Stats SA Survey on domestic tourism¹, domestic transport costs come in second only to shopping for consumers. This is due to a decline in disposable income, consumers are therefore finding themselves in a spot where they need to reprioritise funds in order to essentially, do more with less.
For those looking to sell their vehicles to reduce some of their financial pressures, Uber and CarZar are taking out the stress and intensive admin of selling a car independently, while providing sellers with a reliable transport alternative once they’re sold their car.
This partnership will bring a sense of relief to car owners who want to sell their vehicles but still want to enjoy safe, affordable and reliable transport while they are looking at their alternative transport options. Uber and CarZar’s partnership is centred around the #CarFreeCareFree movement. With the rise in costs such as fuel, this partnership is set to extend a helping hand to consumers who need one. CarZar has teamed up with Uber and will provide those who sell their vehicles to CarZar up to R3 000 in free Uber rides! This deal is effective as of 29 June 2017.
“Uber’s goal is to help reduce traffic congestion in cities which will, in turn, result less, unproductive, time wasted sitting in traffic. Partnering with CarZar helps us help those who’ve sold their vehicles to understand what a great, hassle-free option Uber is,” says Shavaye Govender, Lead : Partnerships & Uber for Business, Uber SSA.
CarZar CMO, Francesca Berta, says, “We are very excited to be one of the first brands to partner with Uber to promote a car free society.”
She adds, “We look forward to offering sellers a solution to their temporary transport issues once they sell their vehicles to CarZar, and what better way to start than experiencing hassle-free Uber!”
