Southeast Asia’s largest used car trading platform, Carsome, has launched its first Penang and Johor Bahru inspection centres early this year, with their new addition in Melaka which opened this May, followed by Ipoh and Batu Pahat this coming June. With the aim to provide nationwide coverage for their car selling service, Carsome aims to setup a total of 15 inspection centres by the end of the year.
Carsome prides itself as a one-stop solution for car sellers – from inspection to ownership transfer – promising a hassle-free process with instant payment and zero paperwork. Since its inception in 2015, over 31,000 cars were transacted on Carsome platform across the four countries that they are present.
Customers can schedule a free car valuation at any of their 8 inspection centres located in KL, Selangor, Johor, Penang and Melaka, where Carsome’s inspectors will appraise the car and provide an offer on the spot. Customers will have the option to choose for nationwide bidding, where the car will be put up for a 3-hour bidding session for all used car dealers in Carsome network to purchase. Upon offer accepted by customer, all paperwork will be handled by Carsome and payment is done via online bank transfer instantly during ownership transfer.
“We’re focusing on expanding not just to first tier cities in the markets we are in, but also on widening the coverage to second tier cities – we will be covering Ipoh, Seremban and Kuantan soon. We’ve currently obtained 5,000 dealers onboard across the four markets we’re in, and with the vast dealer network that we have, we’re looking to offer our services to benefit more people and get better car selling prices for our customers,” said Eric Cheng, Co-Founder and CEO of Carsome
