“For the past year, we have greatly improved our customer service, increasing the range of products we can offer, including a new exciting initiative that aims to provide eligible customers with access to a care system that will support them for the lifetime of their car ownership,” said Mobilkamu Co-Founder and CCO Caue Motta in a press statement.

Mobilkamu aims to provide car buyers the experience of a simplified car search and purchase process, with the promise of offering “the fairest price in the market.”

Using their platform, car buyers would not need to research and compare multiple offers.

It also operates a motorbike selling platform named Motorkamu and has launched an agent affiliation programme named Mitra Mobilkamu, which promises “a fair source of income” for individuals who want to sell new cars themselves.

Run by a team of 70, the startup is headquartered in South Jakarta with branch offices in Bekasi and Ciputat.
