The First Rides

 

The launch this month has been exciting. After a successful evening at SOSD’s “Light Up Your Life Run” event, we were also featured in The Straits Times.

We are currently getting a lot of bookings for rides and the first customers have been very positive about our service.

Light Up Your Life Run

The very first large scale pet charity event with PetMate as the official transport partner was a great success, thanks to the organizers, sponsors, performers and all participants!

We’d like to give a big shout out to all of you who came over to the PetMate corner and learned what PetMate is all about!

Thank you all for the support!

We are live in Singapore!

 

It has been an exciting month for the PetMate-team! After a lot of hard work we released both our iOS and Android app in Singapore.

This blog is a summary of all you need to know!

PetMate?

PetMate’ revolutionary urban logistics & on-demand transport platform connects you with local drivers who help to transport your beloved pets.

How does it work?

  1. Make sure you have the latest version from the App Store or Google Play installed.
  2. Where do we need to pick your pet (and you) up? And where is the destination?
  3. Use creditcard or PayPal for payment. We only charge after a succesful driver match.
  4. Your driver will be assigned and will arrive at the designated time and place.

How do I know if my pet will be in good hands?

At PetMate, we are pet lovers at heart. Our drivers are either owners of pets themselves or have had prior experience handling pets as regular drivers for some of our partners.

New drivers have to fulfil training hours to make sure they are equipped with dealing with your furry family. We also have a strict protocol to make sure proper procedures are in place.

Want to be a driver?

We built a successful transportation business with our parent company (CarPal) and have decided to launch a separate brand for the transportation of our furry friends.

If you want to sign up as a driver for PetMate you can join the fleet of CarPal. Make sure to select ‘pet-driver’.

Meet Angus and Lila! We had the pleasure of fetching these 2 Great Pyrenese to camp for the week while their pawrents went on a short break.

 

 

The PetMate Story

Once upon a time, there was a group of good-hearted pet owners with lovely pets. These pets came in different shapes, sizes and forms. The thing they had in common was their loving owners who wanted nothing but the best for their furry friends. Sending them to get a haircut, have a spa treatment, or go play at the park… anything to make them happy.

These pet owners had a community of like-minded friends with furry companions. After a while, they realized how difficult it was to get around the island without your own transport. Booking a cab was also difficult at times because not every driver wanted to have furry passengers. As friends, those who drove often took turns fetching one another’s pets from place to place.

Pool Of Pet-Friendly Drivers

Woof! Why not start a pool of exclusively pet-friendly drivers, who knows exactly how to transport pets on demand? If people can order personal drivers on demand like Uber, why can’t pet owners do the same?

But there is always “pet taxis”, you say. Sure, but most of them require advance booking, charge a premium flat rate no matter where the pet goes, and transport many pets at a time… Do you really want your pet to spend so much time in a vehicle?

Book Your Own Driver

With PetMate, you can book your personal pet driver on the very same day, and only pay for the distance your pet travels. Feel like going to the beach with your dog on a lovely day? Your cat isn’t feeling well and needs to go to the vet but you’re already running late for work? Don’t worry, PetMate’s here! Just go to our website or app, tell us what you need, and a driver will be dispatched to you at the time you designated. We even arrange return trips for you!

We are committed to getting your pet, together with yourself, from location to location. Safe, Fast, with love.

So, that’s the story of PetMate. Want to be a part of this revolutionary furry transportation? Follow Ben on Instagram and Facebook to find out what’s going on at PetMate.
