Advice For Driving in Heavy Rain by J3 Tawau Car Rental

Car Rental in Tawau

Many people like to dance in the rain. But what about driving in the rain? A heavy rain that is. Fun? For some people, driving in the rain is a major concern. On average there are more than 45,000 accidents every year as a result of wet and slippery road conditions, causing about 4,700 deaths and injuries.

But for your info, driving in heavy rain does not have to be a horrible experience. Here at J3 Tawau Car Rental we would like to share some tips from Brent Praeter, a coach and expert driving instructor to help you drive your car in heavy rain:

Tips number 1, THINK & FOCUS. It looks simple right? "Many people drive subconsciously, out of habit," said Praeter. "And when it rains, they often do not change their minds." When conditions are less than ideal, especially during heavy rains, the driver should stay alert, focused and concentrate on what is happening around them. Do not neglect and daydreaming. Focus and think about the situation around.

Tips number 2, TURN ON THE HEADLIGHTS. Turn on the car headlights when visibility is poor is an act that can save lives when driving in heavy rain. This will ensure a moving car in front and behind you aware of the position of the car that you drive. It can avoid a collision when driving in heavy rain. Praeter also said that the car wipers and tires must be in good condition to make sure you stay safe while driving in the rain.

Tips number 3, BEWARE OF HYDROPLANING. That's the technical term for what happens when your wheels slide over the surface layer of water over the road itself. When hydroplaning occurs, your car will start slipping uncontrollably. With only 1/12 inch layer of water on the road and the speed is more than 35 miles per hour, you can experience hydroplaning. So make sure you are driving your car slowly while in the rain. If you start to hydroplane, do not panic and please release the gas pedal slowly and continue driving without pressing the gas pedal until you regain control of your car.

Okay, sounds easy right? Hopefully sharing these tips will help you when driving in the rain. If you need a rental car that can help you drive safely in the rain, as well as a car that can save you money, do not hesitate to contact us at J3 Tawau Car Rental at 014-9669-359.

Car Rental in Tawau During The Holiday Season

Tawau Car Rental

How are you guys doing?? It's been a while since our last post. We've been very busy handling the customers booking, sending and picking up cars etc. This is possible without your support, so thank you guys. Hey, are you aware that we are now already at the end of the year? Christmas is just around the corner and we are in the middle of school holiday. If you're coming home for Christmas, or are here for holiday or work related event, do not forget to contact us at J3 Tawau car Rental to get the best offer from us.

Since the last time we posted in this blog six months ago, so much has happened. But certainly everything was fine. We get more and more customers, the only issue is our cars are not enough to cater the demand. Sometimes there is a booking or two that we had to pass because we ran out of the car to provide. Sorry about that. We will strive to increase our rental cars in the future to overcome the problem.

However, we are always open for bookings. But do not book your car last minute. We can assure you it would indeed be a little difficult to get a car at the very last minute. It is better if you make a reservation early. For the month of December, as usual reservations are 2x higher from any other month because of the holiday season. But there are still cars available for bookings. To book, just SMS / WHATSAPP J3 Tawau Car Rental at 014-9669-359. First come, first serve. Oh yes, why only SMS / WHATSAPP you might ask? Why can't just call us? To tell the truth, we learn from the mistakes. We've learned a lot. When you call, it is only a verbal conversation, sometimes misunderstanding happens. We always get  "eh, that day you said the rate is XX, how come now it is YY?" So to avoid misunderstanding, we now prefer black and white, in writing. Anything later, we can refer back to the thread of the conversation. Easy, right? So for the next booking, please SMS / WHATSAPP us at 014-9669-359. Thank you and continue to support us.

J3 Tawau Car Rental Booking System

J3 Tawau Car Rental Booking System

What is the car rental booking system that we use at J3 Tawau Car Rental? Many of our friends had been asking us how we manage our rental car reservations, what are the system that we use? How much do we pay for that system? It is a bit complicated to run a car rental business without a proper booking system. When we first start our car rental business, we only use manual system to store bookings. We wrote each bookings manually, one by one on the whiteboard. It is tedious and a complete mess. The worst part is, sometimes we overlooked customers bookings and forgot to write it down. 

Eventually we began to wonder what is the easiest way to do all this? There are many car rental booking system sold in the market, but they are expensive and we can't afford to pay the licensing fee which is in USD. To cut the long story short, we use what we have in hand. We use MS Excel. After all, MS Excel is free. First, we create a very simple table to key-in our bookings, We did only few rows and columns for the type of cars, the booking date and the rental rate. The downside of this, each time a customer calls, we have to open our laptop to check the schedule. We were unable to answer quickly enough to the customer's enquiries. We began to think, how can we put this "excel table" into our phone? You know, just like an app, so we can check on it real fast whenever we want to. 

Finally, after thorough search on google, we find the answer that we're looking for. The answer is to use VBA or Visual Basic Application in MS Excel. We modified our schedule by copying car rental apps in google play. Our favorite is Gimin. We copy more or less the same type of interface etc and finally we did manage to create our own car reservation system that is easy for us to use. Whenever a customer send in their bookings and personal details, we immediately copy it into our system. We also set up a reminder for each bookings so that we never overlooked or forget to deliver the car when the time come.

So to all customers who book their rental car with us, do not worry. We got your bookings covered ;)

Pick-up The Phone, Please

What's up with the "pick-up the phone, please" post title? No gimmicks or anything. But this time we want to convey something that is important to all of you. At J3 Tawau Car Rental, we will lock the car renter booking in our system. The pick-up and return time of the rented vehicle will be noted significantly. When it came for the time to return the car, we will call the renter back to re-confirm the time of when the car will be returned, what time the car will be at the airport etc.

Problems will arise if the car renter could not be contacted and out of reach. Whether he hung up the phone or did not answer the call at all. If we are unable to contact the renter, we will send sms or whatsapp. If we get a response message and the renter provided reasonable grounds why the car is not returned, we will not take any action and will wait (patiently).

But if we are not given any response message after a fairly long period, for example 24 hours, we will take action. Similarly, if the renter responds but the response given was suspicious and contain elements of fraud, we will take action. What actions will we take? First of all, after more than 24 hours and the renter did not pick-up our call or fail to call us back, or he/she sent fraudulent and suspicious messages, we will make a report at the police station. After a police report, we will post the renter's identification card and  driver's license snapshot on Facebook. We do this to ask help from local residents to help us identify the renter and at the same time helping us to get our car back.

Our intention to post the renter identification card and driver's license snapshot on Facebook have nothing to do with the intention to humiliate the renter or their family. If they are innocent, why should they be ashamed? Our goal is just to get our car back. Having managed to get our car back, we will delete the image immediately. Nearly 99.99% of our renters are honest people and we never got this problem. Only 0.01% of the renter will resort to such a mischievous behaviour and playing disappearing act with us. As a result, their identification card and driver's license is posted on Facebook for public viewing.

Thanks to 99.99% of our car rental customers who were good and honest. We really appreciate it. The other 0.01% , all we want to say is, be a good person and do not trouble others. We are grateful to this day because we always have the support of Tawau people. Although there are dishonest people among our renters, but with the help of residents of Tawau, we easily get our cars back. Thank you all. We really appreciate it. Thank you for everything ;)
