This month we’re getting dressed up, taking out the good china and getting our hair done, because it’s time to get fancy! Take a glamourous winter road trip in a fancy car, deck your halls with the best in Australian art, try out our super fancy new Audi, and clear out your clutter to give your place minimalist chic.
$100 Winter Wonderland
Winter is a great time to get out of the city. Even though it can be tempting to stay under the blankets and huddle, you’ll be warmer and happier if you push through the front door and go and enjoy the crisp outdoors.
To get you out, we’re offering 2 days in a standard car for $100 – or upgrade to a RAV4 or Audi A1 for just $20 more. Your trip includes 300km, and you’re eligible no matter what plan you’re on. This offer is for a single booking over June or July – for all the details, check out our new Specials Page.
We’ve launched a great new way to find information, get help and sort yourself out: the GoGet Help Centre! Right now it has answers to common questions about billing, cars, damage and troubleshooting, but tell us what else you’d like to see answered here.
Of course, we’re always here to help you when you need, but the Help Centre is an easy way to look up something for yourself.
The GoGet Help Centre is part of our drive to improve customer service and make information more easily available. We’ll be adding to it frequently, and we hope it comes in useful for you!
Our office walls are about to get a lot more snazzy thanks to Artbank!
Artbank holds one of the largest collections of Australian art in the world, and through their leasing program make the art available to those who aren’t ready to buy their own. You could call it Artshare! They’re giving GoGet members 10% off their rates, you just have to show your member card when you speak to them.
It’s a great way to give your office or home a little lift, doesn’t cost a fortune, and helps support the arts community with every dollar going back to supporting living Australian artists. You can check out the current exhibition at their Waterloo gallery or on their Facebook page.
GoGet has given you access to fancy cars for a while, starting with the Mini Cooper many years ago, then the Alfa Romeo Mito and our current Audi A1s. We know you love these cars for when a regular ride just won’t do, so now we’re adding a whole new tier!
The Audi A3 is the first car to join our new “Super Fancy” range. Available in both Sportback and Sedan, the A3 is sporty, roomy, efficient – and a little bit luxurious. They’ll be arriving on the streets over the next week or two, find them by using the Super Fancy filter in the Booking System.
Super Fancy cars are priced at $4/hour above your standard rate and $99/day on all plans except GoStarter, which is $15.90 per hour and $109/day. The A3 is just the first to join the range, we’re going to be adding more very exciting, super fancy cars soon.
Take one for a Super Fancy spin
Because we know you’ll love them, we want you to try an Audi A3 for yourself!
For our GoFrequent and GoOccasional members only, book any Audi A3 for 3 hours, and pay only the standard hourly rate on your plan. There will only be limited A3s available at first, and this offer is for a single booking by the end of July. Check out our new Specials Page to book.
Tip of the Month
When you need to fill up, you might be relieved that we’re picking up the tab, but you still need to go to the counter to pay for us!
There are a few ways you can get your fuel PIN for when you need to fill up:
- On the GoGet App, go to the Manage tab
- In your Booking Confirmation email
- When you confirm your booking online (write it down before you take off)
- In your confirmation SMS (you can turn this on in My Info)
As a sidenote, we’re working on releasing new fuel cards you can use anywhere, so it’ll be easier than ever to ignore what’s on the fuel price boards!
We want you!
We have a bunch of different jobs available at the moment! Whether you like working outdoors or in the office, helping customers or helping us grow our network, there’s a great opportunity for you.
Be our Brand Ambassador and represent GoGet at festivals, promotional activations and out and about on the street. Join our Member Services team and help members in their time of need. Be our Locations Specialist and work with councils and developers to help GoGet expand.
We also have openings for a Quality Assurance role and Admin Assistant on the horizon, so check out all our current position descriptions and apply for them on our job board.
Park at the Hilton
For those of you who drive from Parramatta to the city, Secure Parking have a great offer for you.
If you take a car from a Secure Parking pod in Parramatta, and park at the Hilton Sydney, you can park for up to a day for just $30!
The best thing is it’s easy, and you don’t even have to plan ahead! Just swipe the parking pass that is already in the car when you enter the Hilton, and we’ll add the $30 to your bill automatically.
Upgrade your home office
Back in 2003, the technology behind GoGet was built by our co-founder in his Newtown home. Luckily for the next generation of tech startups (and their partners), there are now better options than working alone at home.
iCentral is a co-working office space for small teams and individuals working on exciting new things. Even if you’re a small team or just on your own, you get all the benefits of a proper CBD office, including meeting rooms, fast internet, and somewhere to go every day. Because iCentral is just for technology startups – and they are selective about who works there – you also get lots of smart, like minded people to bounce ideas off.
They just opened their spiffy new office in Sussex St near Town Hall, so if you’re ready to upgrade your working space, apply here.
Cool things our members are doing
Property is so expensive these days, have you considered how much you’re paying to keep your hobby kit, sports gear and old books in your house? Rather than getting your board games to pay rent for the space under your bed (Monopoly money doesn’t count for much), why not just evict them?
Boxly are GoGet members, and have a neat solution for taking care of your space consuming stuff. Boxly will drop off boxes for free, pick them up when packed, and securely store them for you. They’re return your things anytime – sometimes with a GoGet van!
Start decluttering your place and get yourself a box at boxly.com.au.
