TATA NEN StartUps Awards website, i noticed following comments made for MeriCAR.com

Experts Comment 1:

“The company has a unique concept, but for it to succeed, it requires to change user behavior, which is generally tough.
However, the company if it can create right alliances, it has a good potential. The real challenge would be get alliances in place, which are mutually beneficial.
Besides, it needs to create awareness among the users to convince them to experiment. Once, they experiment, it needs to get the right user experience.
This is definitely a long shot, but if executed right, it has a great potential.”

Experts Comment 2:

“Mericar is targeting the increasing number of car owners,by providing a simple solution to access car servicing solutions.
This might be very useful for car owners who have moved away from the area where their original owner is located.

However, one wonders whether this service is substantial enough to build a company around, or whether the barriers to entry sufficient as competition could fairly easily enter the market.
Perhaps Mericar would do well to work with one of the car sales sites, and provide an additional service alongside.”

I agree with experts comments when they say – “to succeed, it requires to change user behavior…..”. I can understand it very well and i take it as a challenge.

If i just look at back…I used to organize meeting in 1997 when nobody knew about “internet”. I wrote an article on the subject “how free email works” in The Times Of India. How funny would it look today if i write the same article again. I used to sell modem and internet connection at that time when “asking for internet connection” was difficult. Today car dealers have no time to think about “car service booking online”, but they have to and MeriCAR.com has his first existence to make it happen.

I want to be focus with “car care”, and not thinking to have site on sell and buy car subject.

Based on suggestions and comments, we are doing some changes on MeriCAR.com, so you would see more changes on our website.

Car servicing boom when car production is slow

I think when people are not buying new car, it may be obvious used cars and car servicing business may boost. Service industry in any sector gets boost when production gets slow.

A slowdown in auto sector would give chance to un-authorised service station to do good business. They need to improve their services. When you know you have to pay 3 times the cost of unauthorized car service center for standard things like washing/oil check etc – your vehicle, you will avoid going to authorized car service centers. I know for repairing some parts people do not take risk to go to unauthorized car service center.
