Our Founding Story
& Achievements

Motorist, headquartered in Singapore, was founded in 2015, after our founder Damian Sia tried selling his car on his own. As a first-time seller, he encountered many unreasonable offers from unethical buyers who tried to take advantage of his inexperience. He was also unsure on the sales and vehicle transfer process, as there were several documents to be handed in. After this experience, Damian decided that he wanted to help fellow drivers who were also new to vehicle transactions. He eventually came up with the idea of a reliable third-party platform where car owners could connect with certified and genuine buyers, and find professional help for any doubts they might have.

Thus, Motorist was born. To date, Motorist has assisted 864,000 drivers and completed RM3,972,000,000 in vehicle transactions securely and successfully. The company has also grown from a one-man team to a bustling company with over 90 employees. In 2018, Motorist decided to set its sights on expanding into the APAC market, starting with Malaysia, followed by Thailand in 2022, and most recently, Vietnam in 2023. The company will also be taking its operations beyond vehicle transactions, and focusing on the needs of drivers.

Motorist is now a comprehensive AutoConcierge platform that not only assists drivers with vehicle transactions, but also helps them to conveniently manage all aspects of vehicle ownership. What was once a simple idea, Motorist is now simplifying the lives of every driver.
