Carsome opens shop in S’wak to give more car-selling M’sians peace of mind

USED car trading platform Carsome has officially expanded its operations to East Malaysia with the launch of four new inspection centers in Sarawak. 

The expansion will see the company introducing a new standard of selling cars to East Malaysians and providing them with a trusted and transparent option.

In a statement, Carsome said the new inspection centers in Kuching, Sibu, Miri and Bintulu aim to offer customers a differentiated and hassle-free car-selling experience through fast payment and a worry-free transaction process. 

Guided by a stringent inspection procedure, every Carsome inspection centre will have a skilled professional inspector to conduct comprehensive inspections on the cars to ensure their quality is accounted for and offer the best price in the market.

Carsome co-founder and Carsome Academy CEO Teoh Jiun Ee said the company’s expansion to East Malaysia is part of its ongoing mission to solve customers’ pain points, thereby providing Malaysians peace of mind throughout their car-selling journey.

“The presence of Carsome in East Malaysia marks a significant and positive milestone for us,” he said.

“Our motivation is to make Carsome services accessible to all Malaysians as we continue to innovate the used car ecosystem, driven by data and technology.”

With the launch of four new inspection centers, Carsome now has 49 inspection centers across Malaysia. 

Trusted and transparent used car ecosystem

Leveraging proprietary data and pricing algorithms, Carsome ensures fair pricing can be determined for every car, underlining its goal to create a trusted and transparent used car ecosystem. 

Aside from pricing offered by Carsome, customers can also opt to use its e-bidding platform to get different price offers from its nationwide network of used car dealers.

The launch of the new Carsome inspection center at Kuching, held recently, was officiated by Sarawak Deputy Premier Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas, who is also the state’s second finance and new economy minister.

Douglas said Carsome’s expansion to Sarawak comes at a critical time given that the country is in a recovery phase from the COVID-19 pandemic, adding that Carsome’s technology-driven business model will complement the state’s goals of improving the standard of living, growing its economy to provide business and job opportunities and train its people to be resourceful and increase their income level. 

On a similar note, Carsome hopes through its expansion that it will help stimulate the state’s economy and drive greater growth for the used car market. 

To do this, Carsome said it will create new sales and growth opportunities for used car dealers by establishing partnership deals and offering bonus rewards and credit lines for long-term business sustainability. 

In a bid to ensure the word gets out and entice prospective sellers and buyers, a series of marketing initiatives offering various promotions for consumers to experience the new standard of selling their cars through Carsome will be spearheaded in Sarawak.

The company will also be supporting used car dealers in digitising their operations and ecosystem by introducing its e-bidding platform and dealer financing programme and providing end-to-end support, thus helping them seamlessly tap into new trends through digitalisation. – Oct 22, 2022
