They say “necessity is the mother of invention,” and for the developers of the new app called beepbeep its the need to make car ownership or more specifically– maintenance even more convenient.
Automobile owners who want freedom from the hassle of traditional responsibilities that come with having a car–such as making time to bring your vehicle to the casa for maintenance, you can now pass that duty to beepbeep.ph – the first online destination, platform, and gateway for all things automotive.
“Today, we can do all sorts of tasks from our phones. There are services that help us pay our bills, work remotely, get rides, order food, arrange vacations, and other things previously unheard of. We at beepbeep.ph are ushering in a new age of convenience for car owners,” said CEO Anton Ojeda in a speech at the formal launch of the website and app (free to download on the App Store and Google Play) at the Whitespace Manila in Makati City.
The app, Ojeda says is meant to address all car owners needs in the most efficient and time-saving way.
Ojeda walked guests through the features of the app, then performed a live demonstration of the Maintenance Valet – a key feature in the app’s suite of functions.
“When car owners need to have preventive maintenance services or even annual auto-detailing jobs done on their vehicles, they don’t have to do the task themselves and interrupt their daily routines,” the executive said, and showed the audience how to search for their preferred car shop on beepbeep.ph and book an appointment through the website or the app. Cars will be fetched by beepbeep.ph company chauffeurs (all trained professional drivers) who are fully equipped with body cameras and are continuously monitored via GPS for both safety and constant monitoring. Vehicles are insured from the moment they are turned over to the beepbeep.ph drivers.
“This is something we have thought of very carefully and worked on painstakingly hard on to guarantee because our vehicles are valuable and our time is precious,” continued Ojeda. “Beepbeep.ph promises total transparency, security, and worry-free service. We don’t want our customers to concern themselves about where their cars are or how they are driven.”
Beepbeep.ph also provides users access to over 7,500 curated and vetted car shops – giving them an immediate link to a considerable network of auto services ranging from reliable official dealership hubs (casas) and independent repair shops (talyer) in the metro through its Search & Canvass feature. Search parameters can be tailored based on service, location, and favorability rating.
The app also links to garages and local car shops that offer maintenance and mechanical repairs, car wash and detailing, body repairs, paints and wraps, and more. Each beepbeep.ph listing provides a detailed look at what to expect from an establishment – a menu of services, features, operating hours, address and Google Map locator, payment methods, and estimated cost per visit. The directory also includes insurance providers and Land Transportation Office outlets.
Rounding out its services, beepbeep.ph promises motorists an immediate helpline for on-road emergencies. The 24/7 Roadside Assistance feature offers emergency towing, battery replacement, and tire-change services to any car owner – without the need for memberships within Metro Manila, and without additional charges.
“We want to be of service to two groups, actually. Our priority, of course, are car owners. We want them to be confident and comfortable with their vehicles,” declared Ojeda. “Secondly, we aspire to be the medium for all automotive establishments, big or small.”
Influencer, road safety advocate, multimedia motoring journalist, and TV host James Deakin was also introduced as beepbeep.ph’s official ambassador.
