Where is the best place to sell your car in UAE?

Recommended Posts

This place has grown quite as much overtime in car businesses that its difficult to find out the real good and fair place to sell your car in Dubai. Few of my friends shared their horror stories of getting 50% cash value from sellyourcar.com, cashyourcaruae.com, simplybuyanycar.com guys in al quoz. Then their is another horror stories for aweer car market dealer who offer 50-60% of car value, something similar with abu-shagara car market in sharjah.

So where does one can really go and sell his car for good and reasonable price. I understand that selling to trader means less money but definitely not 50% of the present going market value. Any expert opinion and advice's are highly welcome. Thanks.

Private dealing is the best way than selling to stealers as I have waited for 3-4 days last year and got the good price with private dealings. I understand that it might take time or you pay little to advertise but it's worth all the way. You can also post free adverts in fb groups and few other classified sites which are famous and dont charge money to increase your chances.

I agree with annie, but still if someone is in rush and have no time for viewing then I feel Al futtaim automall, dynatrade and 4x4 motors are kind of fair evaluater and offer almost 80% of the current market value. I have sold my 2 cars that way in past when I was in real rush to get a parking spot for my new car.

Same here. You'll get better value from the end buyer. I sold my Kia Sportage 2012 for 52K last year and even the dealer told me that I was lucky to have it sold at that price.

Dubizzle, Newspapers, Gulf News, Al Khaleej are great sources to sell your car at..

 

I had a very bad experience with selling my Jeep 2013 model that i've used 5 months from Al Futtaim, bought it for 114,000 & had to sell the car, they payed me 55,000 for it!

Sold it for 90,000 !

Of course private deal rocks only genuinely private deals. Sadly duz has become dealer's backyard: who call you 20 times a day for asking "last cash price" and offer 50% of the advertised price.

Dealers everywhere here try to rip the crap out of you, i think the reason is because there are lots of people who leave the country, it became a habit for them to rip off people!

The best way to sell a car is here is to advertise it and sell it to a Private Buyer.

When I had to sell my Ford Focus, I went to Al Futtaim Automall and after evaluation they offered me just AED 11K.

I sold it to a Private buyer for AED 23K, So all dealers just want to rip you off and then make a profit by selling it for an inflated  Price.

Hi guys,

I would like to share the flip side of the story. I am a n Engineer by profession but I  buy and sell cars as a hobby. I mostly look for luxury sedans and sports cars so once in two months I buy my 'weekend' car. The reality is that your best bet is to sell to end users and you will hardly find a dealer paying decent money. Their margin is some where like 10% for a  car below 50k and 15-20k for a car touching the 100k mark and above. But the important thing that I wanted to get across is that some time our expectation is too high and when we get a quote from a dealer we feel they are paying half the value, which may be true in some cases as some people highlighted. For example, recently a friend's buddy was selling his BMW 530, 2013 with 45,000km for 141k and Iif I were to buy this car in order to resell it then I would pay him just 100k because i have to resell thr car back in the market and grt my money rolling. This also means my price should be attractive or else i woll be stuxk with the car. So thats how things work at our end :P

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The second point is that today's car market, like any other business, is doing real bad .. Things are hardly moving so the dealers try to play it safe by offering such ridiculous prices.

@mankool, What a great reply man: Honest and absolutely to-the-point.

IMHO: Anyone who buy the car and drive it should bear the depreciation whether it's for a month or a year as that's how the market should take it as: you use it, you pay for it. Sadly and unfortunately there is no legally transparent documented sale price and odometer reading here which leave quite a big ambiguity and plus fair people try to inflate the price on dubizzle as a cushion to get the decent selling price while getting sloshed with bargain hunter.

In last few years, I have seen private dealer as much as five times than prior to 2010 in UAE. All thanks to online age and easy part-time second source of money generation. Maybe car market is doing bad because of this only as anyone want to buy a car, see's a rocketed inflated price and anyone want to sell the car they see filthy cheap offers and in end no one buy and sell :-(.

      More than 500,000 used cars are listed every year online on UAE car selling portals. So every time you plan to sell your used car that figure is your competition. So how does one go about selling used car quick and easy ? I have been asked this question more than 100 times in my life in Dubai, UAE and that's why I thought of writing this article and keep sharing and using it for others to help. In last 3 years I have bought and sold more than 7 cars for myself, my friends and family. Selling your old car can be pretty daunting task if you don’t know how to sell. Of course, even if it’s an old car a buyer will surely look on all of its aspects. With that, you have to make sure that your car is in good shape and proper working condition overall. You need to make sure that your buyer will be impressed with the first looks. Remember strongly that while selling softer tone, cooperative approach and friendly behavior will help. If you can't adopt any of these three things, sell your car at car dealer for quarter the price.
      Make Sure Your Car Look Awesome: They say dont judge a book by its cover, but in case of a used car its always judged by its looks. No matter how powerful your engine is or awesome your music system sounds if your car is not presentable from outside, there is a chance that the buyer might not even open your door. To do so you’ll probably spend some cash for detail cleaning, washing and some minor repairs. These all are necessary to make your car as good as new. More than 75% of car buyers always look for car that has no immediate cost and they can reliably use the car from the date of purchase.
      For placing an online advertisement make sure cars is extremely clean and drive off to spacious parking lot and take lot of pictures with the best phone or real camera you got. Post the ad with best 8-10 pictures showing all exterior and interior angles. Highlight any flaws, dents or scratches in picture, be more realistic and honest. This way you will filter the picky buyers and save lot of time in viewing. Always remember, the price is what draws peoples attention, but the description and photos is what causes them to call your number.
        Show the Love, Bond and Good Memories: Emotions sells better than anything else. So share your best car stories with the buyer, show your love, attachment and bond with the car that gives the new buyer a confidence in buying a car from a careful and loving owner. Share the story of you and your spouse had really good drive-time, kids love it completely and going to miss this ride, etc. This shows that you kept the car as a family member and not just a piece of machine and pushed it hard for having fun. What I meant is to show the love, if you really have it, but don’t fake it.
        Be Honest and Transparent with Full Car Service History: Last but not least, this alone is the key game-changer point that many owners don’t know the value of showing the detail car service history to a new buyer. If you have the dealer car service history, then it’s easy to show the records on booklet with stamps or receipts. If car is out of warranty and you have maintained the car with reputable workshop, then show all the service details and recent repair bills (if you have it). This builds the immense trust and helps you sell the car in NO-TIME.  When done preparing your car, it's time to find potential buyers. Of course, even when I say it is to sell your car fast, you still need to be patient and wait for people to respond to your ads. Moreover, so that your advertisement will be really effective you should share it on the Social media and you might have to repost it sometime for more people to see. Fortunately, with all your efforts, someone will be interested and you can get the best price for the deal.
