“CredR has sold over three lakh used two-wheelers in the last five years and is especially adept at refurbishing two-wheelers before selling them through our showrooms. Our inherent refurbishment capabilities made on-demand servicing a natural extension for the business,” Sasidhar Nandigam, Chief Strategy Officer, CredR, said in a statement.

The Indian Unorganized Two-Wheeler Segment

The automobile industry in India has come a long way. According to an Indian Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF) report, the two-wheeler segment, comprising scooters and bikes, holds 81% of the overall Indian automobile share. This segment is also reportedly growing at a CAGR of 9.48%. Though the numbers speak for themselves, the industry still lags behind when it comes to organized online bike maintenance services.

Bike owners still prefer using roadside garages to get their vehicles serviced – spending INR 200-400 in one go, wasting man hours, and exposing themselves to contamination, especially in the context of the coronavirus pandemic. Additionally, consumers also complain of being cheated by unorganized players by using fake spare-parts and spurious oils in the servicing process.

The CredR Care app allows users to book a two-wheeler servicing package from the comfort of their homes or offices, as per their bike make model and select from a range of convenient date and time slots to schedule the doorstep servicing. It also solves the problem of two-wheeler consumers by providing total transparency in spares, accessories, consumables, and pricing. The servicing is done by trained auto experts while following all social distancing norms and sanitization protocols.
