Carsome, the e-commerce platform, has officially launched the Carsome Certified Lab, the largest car refurbishment centre in Southeast Asia. Carsome, the region’s largest platform for pre-owned cars, lists over 1,000 cars on its website. With this new facility, the company is able to support its pre-owned car marketplace and offer buyers better peace of mind.
The refurbishment facility is sited on over 185,000 square feet space. The fully-functional Lab is a state-of-the-art facility that is able to refurbish up to 2,000 Carsome Certified cars per month. The bulk of the investment is spent on mechanical and general repair, body and paint, as well as car detailing. The facility includes 18 inspection bays, 1 paint mixing room, 8 spray booths, and 115 working bays. Carsome Certified CEO, Mei Han, said that Carsome Certified Lab plays an integral part in supporting the company’s pursuit of delivering peace of mind to consumers.
“Carsome Certified exists to give consumers the options of pre-owned cars that are more superior. All our cars go through world-class refurbishment at Carsome Certified Lab, so that our customers can choose their dream car from our largest selection of best-in-class, quality-assured cars. This is our continuous effort in eliminating consumer and industry pain points,” Mei added.
Each Carsome Certified car is carefully selected through a stringent 175-point inspection to ensure that it is free from fire, flood and major accident damages. The work in Carsome Certified Lab covers all parts of the car i.e. exterior, interior, engine, transmission, suspension, steering, and electricals. Each process is performed by skilled and experienced technical specialists while adhering to global safety standards. All these efforts ensure that all Carsome Certified cars are safe, comfortable and look as good as new. The age of the pre-owned vehicle to be sold is capped at 9 years.
Pre-owned cars that are Carsome Certified come with the Carsome Promise, which ensures that the cars have passed a stringent 175-point inspection and includes a 1-year warranty, 5-day money-back guarantee, and fixed price with no hidden fees.
The company plans to open more Carsome Certified Labs in the next 12 months across Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand to continue offering the widest and largest selection of quality pre-owned cars for consumers to choose from.
Buyers can expect to browse for cars online, purchase one with minimal paperwork and have their car home-delivered for maximum convenience.
