RUMAWIP usually comes with only one parking lot; to purchase an extra parking lot, you often need to pay up to RM 15,000 or more (which is rarely financed as a loan), subject to availability. E hailing service like Grab or AirAsia works for the average Malaysian, it is cost-effective to just bring us to the train station if it is not too far away. The issue is that RUMAWIP purchases encourage owners to buy only one automobile, which causes trouble if the car breaks down. If the e hailing service can’t solve these problem, car rental is the next option.
Car sharing platforms have become increasingly popular in Malaysia in recent years, as they offer a convenient and cost-effective alternative to traditional car rental services. These platforms allow users to rent a car for a short period of time, often by the hour, day, or week, and offer a range of vehicles including sedans, hatchbacks, and SUVs. It can be the solution at times when one purchase the RUMAWIP that comes with one parking.
A popular car sharing platform in Malaysia is GoCar. GoCar offers a range of vehicles for rent, including sedans, hatchbacks, and SUVs, and allows users to rent a car by the hour, day, or week. GoCar has a large network of pickup and drop-off locations around Malaysia, and also offers a carpooling service for users who want to share a ride with other travelers.
Socar is another car sharing platform that is popular in Malaysia. Socar offers a range of vehicles for rent, including sedans, hatchbacks, and SUVs, and allows users to rent a car by the hour, day, or week. Users can choose from a variety of pickup and drop-off locations around Malaysia, including major cities such as Kuala Lumpur and Penang, as well as smaller towns and rural areas.
This can be particularly useful for RUMAWIP owner or those who only need a car in emergency or occasionally but not feasible as a long term solution.
