What We Do

Happy customer showing thumbs up from the frontseat of a car

We first started as a used car selling platform where we help customers sell their used cars through a trusted, convenient and fast process.

This simple process starts with booking an appointment online. Our extensive 175-inspection process is FREE for all and takes only 30 minutes at a Carsome Inspection Center.

Our highly-trained inspectors are well-equipped to provide a complete car condition report before an on-the-spot offer is given. Alternatively, customers can proceed with bidding where our network of dealers will have the chance to place a bid. After which, all paperwork will be handled by us.

From car inspection, ownership transfer, to easy financing, selling a car becomes hassle-free. Carsome eliminates the pain points in the traditional used car selling process, offering effective solutions to consumers and used car dealers.

Currently in its pilot phase, this service has been launched in Malaysia, but is making its way across other major cities within the Southeast Asia region very soon.

In August 2020, we launched the new way of buying cars, a brand new service that offers consumers a seamless car buying experience.

Enter www.carsome.my, click on the Buy Car tab, and consumers can browse for their dream cars to fit their lifestyle. All listed cars have a 360-degree view of the car’s interior and exterior, a list of the current imperfections, professional reconditioning report, as well as an all-inclusive price.

Booking a test drive can be easily done anytime and anywhere on the website, before heading to a Carsome Experience Center for the test drive.

To give consumers peace of mind, all cars listed on our site are Carsome Certified, having undergone Carsome’s signature 175-point inspection, with no major accident, frame or flood damage.

Carsome’s digitalized experience also offers one-year warranty and five-day money back guarantee under the Carsome Promise package, the first of its kind in the market.
