The Best Rental Car in Tawau

In today's post we would like to highlight our very own Proton Saga Megavalve. This car is the first Malaysian car (2nd batch). For those of you who might not know, this evergreen car is a classic. It is strong and sturdy and the engine is good. Just look at it, what a beauty :)

Kereta Kereta Sewa Tawau J3 had made a brave decision recently to put this car on our rent car list. We call it brave because of the perception of the people out there. Yes, many people out there are used to Myvi, Viva, Kancil, Saga BLM etc when it comes to renting a car. Poor old Proton Saga is just out of question. It is just the unthinkable. So to put a Proton Saga on the renting list is just seems mad. But we manage to pull through. We put in on our list.

So if you happen to be in Tawau soon, why not rent our Proton Saga? You might be surprise with the condition of this car. As of 31 July 2013, we have been renting out this car for almost 3 weeks. And the reception is unbelievable. Maybe because of the rent fee. You see, we only charge RM50/day for this car. If you are renting it more than 7 days, you can get it only for RM45/day. No where else in Tawau or Sabah you can get this super budget car. Just check out the condition of the car below.

The car is in a very good condition. It is clean, no bad smells whatsoever. The air-condition gives you the feeling that you're in the south pole. The radio transmission is clear. The bonnet is super large, even a baby elephant can fit in there nicely.  Last but not least, the engine is in tip-top condition. You can drive long distance safely. So what are you waiting for? This is the best car in Tawau. If you want to rent a good sedan car in Tawau, and you're on a tight budget, this car is the best choice for you. The best! 

Call or sms us now at 013-5528523 to book this car :)

Goodbye Maybank, Hello AmBank :)

J3 Tawau Car Rental is saying goodbye to Maybank

No, we're not hating Maybank. We still think Maybank is the best in terms of providing consumer banking services in Malaysia. Who can forget Maybank2u? It seems everybody uses Maybank2u more than any other online banking facilities in Malaysia.

And AmBank? I bet it's hard to find anyone who uses AmBank online service, let alone having an account at AmBank. It's not that AmBank is no good, it's just that they're not famous, that's all. Okay, so what's up with our blog title you might ask? Once again, we're not hating Maybank, But we decided not to choose Maybank this time around to open our company account.

We're leaving and we choose AmBank instead. To open a company account is not the same as opening a normal saving account. If you want to have your company name as the "account holder" then you must open a current account. Current Account will let you do this. Cool hah?

At Maybank it is quite difficult to open a current account. You see, you have to have an introducer. What is an introducer? In Maybank introducer is a company/person who had already open a current account at Maybank for at least 12 months. You just can't fill up forms and open your account. If no one introduce you at Maybank, just forget it and go home. 

At Ambank it's a breeze. They don't ask for introducer. You only need to bring your trading licence and copy of your identity card. And you only need to come up with RM500 to open the current account. It was so easy and hassle free. That's why we chose AmBank :)

So starting from next week, we will use our current account at AmBank for all our transactions. This include deposits of car booking fee at Kereta Sewa Tawau J3. We will no longer receive deposit payment via our Maybank personal saving account. As of 1st August 2013, everyone who wants to book a car or rent a car with us have to deposit their payment to our AmBank account. Don't worry if you don't have AmBank account. The charges for interbanking transactions is only 10 cents.

So that's it, goodbye Maybank and hellooooooooooooooo AmBank :)

Kecewa Tahap Gaban

Disappointed for not being able to rent a car at Tawau

Kecewa tahap gaban .... that's the term that was expressed by a potential customer when he failed to rent a car from us recently. This situation is not only experienced by this customer, but also by other customers.

For your information, at the moment our rent cars cannot cope with the HIGH demand from all the customers.  Actually we're quite shock by the massive demand! We never thought in a million years that our rental car service will get such a good response from all of you out there. Trimas and thank you very much! However, as a result from this "out of this world response", we always lacking a car whenever there is a call for "I want a car right now"

We were disappointed like you too, especially if you're really desperate to rent a car at that time. We know how you feel. Therefore, to avoid frustration, we would like to advise you all to book early, at least 3-4 days earlier. This will not only help you get the car, but it can help us to deliver the best service to you.

To book a car, please sms / call 013-5528523. You can also email us for booking. Many thanks and cheeers :)

10 Ways to Avoid Car Theft

Car theft in Tawau

Here are 10 things you can do to help protect your vehicle from robbery:

Don’t leave your vehicle unlocked.
Never ever leave your vehicle engine running, especially while it is unattended or unlocked.

Do not put a replacement key near your vehicle.
Many persons hold a replacement key under the car, just in case they get locked out and to tell you the truth, robbers understand precisely where to check for an extra key. While getting locked out of your car is a agony, think about the potential hassle of your vehicle getting thieved.

Don't ever leave your car windows open.
Even throughout the afternoon when it is scorching hot, don’t leave your car windows open when you are not in the vehicle.

Park in well-lit, public localities.
Avoid parking your car in localities that are poorly lit or locations that are not directly seen by the public. This will not only hold you from safety when you exit the vehicle, it will furthermore help hold your car unprotected. Park your car in good place because thieves are inclined to bypass localities that are highly visible.

Establish an audible alert system and a visible anti-theft device.
Car thieves are inclined to steal vehicles with alerts or anti-theft devices because they draw massive  attention when they proceed off. These devices are well worth the investment.

Establish a vehicle immobilizer system.
robbers can bypass your ignition by “hotwiring” your vehicle. You can prevent this by utilizing a vehicle mobilizer system such as fuel cut-offs and intelligent/smart keys

Establish a GPS tracking system.
When your car is stolen, this tracking system will emit a signal to the policeman of your vehicle’s location. This may help the policeman recover your vehicle much quicker and may minimize the damage to your vehicle. This may be a good investment if you live in an locality with high auto theft rates.

Don’t leave precious personal item in your vehicle.
The best way to attract a robber is to leave your purse, ipad,  or another high-value piece in a highly visible place of your car eg, on the dashboard. If you must put something of worth in your car, hold it in the trunk or under the seats, where it is not evident to others.

Use logic and common sense.
If you are wary of the security of your car or see someone loitering around the parking allotment, it’s best to move on and park somewhere else. It’s better to take a couple of additional safety steps than to have your vehicle stolen because you ignored your gut feelings.
