The Montir team

Indonesian on-demand automotive service and spare parts platform Montir announced that it has raised an undisclosed Series A funding round from Southeast Asian venture capital firm East Ventures.

Founded in 2016 by Mikhail Laurus and Dennis Eka Putra, who met in Seattle as finance students, the startup offers car repair services such as air conditioning inspection and car battery changing.

It even offer emergency services such as towing and tire change.

The startup was founded with the goal to provide affordable, time-efficient, and good quality services for car-owners.

In a press statement, Montir dubbed car repairs as one of the most time-consuming activities, and that rapid growth of on-demand services in Indonesia has led car-owners to expect something similar for their cars.

To use the services, users can visit the Montir platform, which is available as a desktop site and a mobile app for Android devices.

Users then choose the type of services that they need and schedule an appointment with Montir’s team of advisors.

“Our service advisor then will come to inspect the car and advise what service or spare parts the customer need to purchase. Once agreed, we will send the parts and replace them right away on the location,” Laurus explained.

Montir said that its goal is to become a “top one-stop solutions for automotive servicing needs.”

Indonesian ride-hailing unicorn Go-Jek, which has been expanding its business overseas, also offers car wash and repair services through Go-Auto. The service is available on its Go-Life mobile app.
