At Kiwiz, we want the buying of a used car to be an exciting moment, rather than a source of anxiety.

The story behind Kiwiz

2018. Montreal.

Edouard, car enthusiast, works in parallel with his studies in a used car dealership, as a salesman. 

He is disappointed with the experience offered to his customers: a lack of ethics and transparency, and only one goal: to sell their car stock.

“We received cars from the auction, we did a small aesthetic job and we immediately resold the car without even doing a mechanical inspection”

His relatives used to look to him for the purchase of a car, and Edouard was happy to help them find the best deal. He liked to use his expertise, and that's how the idea of ​​Kiwiz was born.

Adélaïde has no automotive knowledge and finds it complex to buy a used car. 

“We don't know where to start and we are wary of everything. And then, let's face it, it's not normal to pay more because we have little automotive knowledge. And yet a lot of sellers are taking advantage. If you are not accompanied by a neutral and trustworthy person who knows all about it, you can quickly be fooled… ”

The automobile industry is in the midst of a crisis of confidence, with many information asymmetries between the buyer and the seller. According to the Léger statistical institute, the percentage of Quebecers who do not trust used car dealers fluctuates between 86% and 95% each year, and it is the lowest ranked profession in Quebec, all categories combined.

The numbers speak for themselves, and there is something to be done!

Together, they decide to found Kiwiz with a vision : to become the trusted reference in the used car industry.

After beeing at Parcours Rémi-Marcouxfollowed by the National Bank accelerator, everything speeds up for Kiwiz, whose mission is to enable individuals to buy a car more easily and with confidence.
