Online car platform Carmudi Philippines and the Automobile Association Philippines (AAP), the country’s biggest and oldest auto club, has forged a partnership that aims to promote safer mobility for brand-new and second-hand car owners.
Last February 20, Carmudi Philippines Managing Director Abhi Mohan and AAP President Gus Lagman signed a Memorandum of Agreement making AAP the exclusive emergency roadside service provider for every motor vehicle duly enrolled in AAP’s Corporate Membership Program for Carmudi Philippines.
Based on the Memorandum of Agreement, Carmudi shall warrant those motor vehicles duly registered under its corporate name in the AAP’s Corporate Membership Program.
Vehicles purchased through Carmudi that will be enrolled under the AAP Corporate Membership Program shall be entitled to two (2) service interventions or 50-kilometer tow distance (whichever comes first), 24/7 Ambulance Service, and discounts for car/non-motor insurance and from partner establishments.
For its part, the AAP shall provide benefits such as service interventions, towing, and ERS assistance in Metro Manila, North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX), and the Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway (TPLEX) up north and Metro Manila Skyway and ground-level expressway from Magallanes to Alabang (SOMCO), and the Alabang-Calamba- Sto. Tomas Expressway (ACTEX) down south.
Under the program, the AAP shall extend its assistance to enrolled vehicles within a 25-kilometer road distance of AAP offices at Alabang, Cebu City, Davao City, Lipa City, and San Fernando, Pampanga.
The leaders of both organizations have expressed firm belief that the newly-formed partnership will be fruitful and stable given the background for both entities.
Carmudi Philippines’ managing director said that they share the same vision with the AAP and providing AAP memberships through the Corporate Membership Program would further show their cause.
“Carmudi Philippines is in the business of ensuring the best automotive ownership experience to our customers, right from the research stage until they day they sell their car to upgrade to another. Road Safety has been one of our strong focuses and we have undertaken various measures to educate current and future car owners about road safety.” Mohan added. “As a responsible member of the automotive industry, we take pride in this partnership and the services around safety education and assistance we will be able to provide to our customers, thanks to AAP.”
Lagman shared that the AAP is happy with its partnership with Carmudi Philippines, saying that this new partnership shows the utmost trust and confidence the Berlin-based company has for the car club.
“We hope that this partnership would go places. The years of being in the business of extending assistance to its members would speak volumes of the capabilities of AAP. Rest assured that the members that will be under the Corporate Membership Program will be taken care with quality,” the club president guaranteed.
Carmudi Philippines’ partnership with the AAP started in 2016 by assisting the organization with the printing of the copies for the Republic Act 4136—also known as Land Transportation and Traffic Code.
