Best kept secrets on how to effectively use the reach and power of dubizzle uae without wasting much time and falling into scam or ponzi deals - MUST READ
I have spent som good number of years in UAE and seen dubizzle in uae growing and surpasing the reach of classifieds business with amazing growth. Of course due to their early start they had very good lead in the classifieds especially in used car business, but after that dubizzle continuosly improve the system and made it more beneficil to end users. Even when they start charging recenly, I thought they will fail now but their strong reach really saved them.
P.S. This is not promotion or bashing of dubizzle uae in any way and im sharing my experience to help other car enthusiasts here on how to sell and buy cars with dubizzle.
Do your car research well and get it's right estimated price set in your mind
Too high above 30-40% of estimated price is a private deal and keep following that ad and that seller will start reducing soon on daily basis.
Too low below 30-40% of estimated price is a scammer
Scammer always have no mobile number
They only have email, message me or whatsapp number of outside uae
if you send email then offer of car is in outside uae port - regular story wil come and pay me to get car cleared and then you can buy
With dubizzle uae reach in all emirates of uae, now it's fully loaded with dealers and deal hunters only, I must say above 80% at least.
Dealers will always set PERFECT price and have some key information missing in their ad
So you call to check service hostory, warranty, accidents an dthey say, come to shop and ill show you everything
You waste time for visiting each dealer and only 10% have everything that they say and 90% will say - oh it doesnt matter as we have 300 points checked on this car
So ask dealer to send you all pictures of service history, warranty and accident details on whatsapp / email and you will save 90% time
Genuine sellers are rare find these days as everyone is busy to sell their car by themselve, but see below for their characterstics
Owner standing with car - 100% seller
Night or unclear or blurry shots - 100% seller
car inside have coke can or water bottle, cigg, mobile - 100% seller
car outside the washing bay or service center - 100% seller
car with baby seats, stroller in boot or junk in boot - 100% seller
Best way to sell your cas fast with dubizzle in uae
Avoid all above style of pics as its really disturbing to genuine buyers
Clean car and remove all personal belonging as far as possible - baby seats are ok to show genuineness
Click car in daylight under some nice shade to avoid over bright and dark images
Click some minor defect / scratch pic and highlight to show you are genuine
Click service history picture
clik engine bay and underbody - if possible
Dont click VIN number as its often misuse and made a comment in advertisement, its available on request
Best way to buy car from dubizzle - genuine seller
Keep following his/her advertisment for price drop
Save that search and set email alert as dubizzle has nice function to send you email of your shortlisted car daily and in that email you can see that overpriced car from genuine seller and wait when he drop.
Once within expected range, have all details check on fone as some owners are genuinely uneducated but not cheaters like dealers. Give good margin of error in understanding the engine size, power and features options as he/she may be using car for daily commute and have no idea of V8 vs V6, lol
Never start bargain on fone as a decent buyer who will earn respect, as majority of car dealer agents do that by calling multiple times daily with "whats a last cash price huh" from tons of dfferent numebr to brain wash seller to sell at half the price.
Once you convince with talk, get more picture, vin number and do your research
if you are happy go in person and test drive the car and now if al looks good open the negotiation talk, trust me you will win 8 out of 10 times as by now seller is not on defensive mode + you have gained reputation of genuine buyer.
After placing ad in dubizzle these days every seller become rude answering those fake calls, so you need to clear that image first very carefully to get good and sweet deal.
