What makes public transportation work is not only the system in which it operates on, access to efficient vehicles roadworthy enough for every terrain is also key. It is to this effect that Plentywaka partners with Autochek, an auto solution that manages the car needs of Nigerians through financing, sales, and purchase.
As part of Plentywaka’s continued efforts to revolutionize the public transportation sector in Nigeria, the Techstars-funded startup partners with Autochek to facilitate vehicle inspection, financing and maintenance for its teeming number of vehicle partners.
Founded in 2020, Autochek’s 360-degree automotive solution offers technology-driven vehicle financing, warranty and maintenance services. With a presence in Nigeria and Ghana, the company also provides a strong network of after-sales services that preserve and eases vehicle ownership experience across Africa.
This partnership comes in the wake of plans to expand the Plentywaka Dailywaka ride-sharing service to over 7 new routes in a few days. In addition, the strategic alliance will facilitate hassle-free vehicle inspection and hire-purchase for prospective Plentywaka vehicle partners within a short time.
Plentywaka has, in the last 20 months, completed over 355,000 rides and recently expanded its Dailywaka (In-city) service to include more vehicle options. This was done to increase vehicle availability for its teeming number of riders, help them split fares, and avoid ridiculous surge fares and first/last mile issues for our heroes (drivers).
Speaking on the partnership Onyeka Akumah, Co-Founder and CEO of Plentywaka, said: “Just like Plentywaka, Autocheck was born out of a need to disrupt an underutilized and unstructured industry. Now, a partner or hero can onboard their vehicle within 30 minutes and even get vehicle financial assistance on request. Our values align, and we are excited about the ease and flexibility that this partnership presents for all our vehicle partners across Africa.”
Speaking on the partnership, Etop Ikpe, Founder and CEO of Autochek, added: “This partnership presents a huge opportunity to empower Plentywaka’s vehicle partners through financing as well as enables us, at Autochek, to continue to fulfil our mission to enhance African consumers experience by creating a single marketplace for their automotive needs. Furthermore, by undergoing our 150-point check inspection and taking advantage of our routine maintenance service, Plentywaka’s vehicles are kept on the road in good conditions, thus keeping commuters safe whilst on the move.”
As Plentywaka partners with Autochek, Nigerians should expect a more seamless and convenient public transport system that gives them access to touch base on any location of their choice.
