Oto.com.vn, an automotive platform in Vietnam, that specialises in providing solutions for car buying and selling, has entered a strategic partnership with CARRECT, a provider of routine car maintenance with a focus on on-demand car care, to deliver cohesive & innovative experiences to customers throughout the journey of searching, buying, and using their vehicles.
CARRECT will become the exclusive provider of on-demand auto care in the OTOcare partner system. It offers a one-year free car care privilege for every successful transaction through oto.com.vn.
CARRECT offers two on-demand car services including waterless car washes using eco-friendly products and engine oil replacements to the customer’s doorstep.
CARRECT is the pioneer in running an online app for car care services. Consumers can quickly book an appointment and experience the service anywhere, including at home, after downloading the app. By becoming an official OTOcare partner, CARRECT will help to improve the car care experience for consumers at Oto.com.vn. The move also helps the startup to reinforce the quality of its services and secure a stronger presence in the market.
Customers no longer need to take their vehicles to the partner facilities of Oto.com.vn. With CARRECT, they can book an appointment on the app and give OTOcare card to a technician to enjoy the car wash and oil change right at home. All technicians are well-trained to ensure customers can receive the OTOcare privileges timely and conveniently.

Vu Minh Hoang, CEO of Oto.com.vn said, “Oto.com.vn and CARRECT share the same vision of promoting the development of the domestic automobile market and the automobile service industry to expand to the region and the world. The fact that CARRECT becomes an OTOcare partner in Vietnam is just the first step in the long-term strategic cooperation of the two sides. We are ready to join forces to bring the most convenient experience to our customers.”
Tim Lee, CEO of CARRECT said, “In the future, CARRECT aims to cooperate with Oto.com.vn to solve problems in the secondhand car market, where buyers often have less information than sellers. CARRECT is the exclusive partner with an auto mechanic testing platform in South Korea that was established in 2015 to help solve the problems in the secondhand car market. We aspire to bring the same solution to Vietnam.”
Oto.com.vn has a series of solutions that bring peace of mind to customers when buying and using a car. It offers the free vehicle inspection programme OTOcheck and special membership privileges through OTOcare.
Meanwhile, CARRECT is backed and funded by domestic and international venture capital funds, with the most recent seed round valuation exceeding $2.5 million. The startup has recently completed filming for Shark Tank Season 5.
