Buying a car is an enjoyable part of life in Dubai. Getting the car you want is a challenge, whether it's new or used. You want to sell your car for cash, so you can have a down payment for your new car. There are many ways of selling or buying a car, whether online ads or through a car dealership.

There are some factors to look for in selling or buying a car. Some factors involve a fair price, documentation, and the quality of a car. When selling cars for cash, look to Car Sell Zone as your premier choice. Since 2001, Car Sell Zone makes selling cars in Dubai fast and efficient. They can also help with the car buying process as well. 


Challenges In Selling Your Car Personally 


Getting a fair price for your car

There are several ways to sell a car in Dubai, including car dealerships, used car dealers, classified ads, and online buying companies. Some dealers are reluctant to buy old cars or used cars with mechanical issues. Some private car dealerships rip you, assuming you have limited knowledge about your car. 

You can sell your car personally, but do not expect to get your cash immediately. You must place an ad and hope that you find a buyer who meets your demands.

In a personal sale, expect to get 50%-60% of your asking price. There will be potential buyers who would drive a hard bargain when buying a car. If you have not gotten a potential buyer in 7-10 days, consider lowering your price to 80% of your asking price.


Not only do you have to deal with potential buyers, but you must get your car inspected by Dubai Road Transportation Authority (RTA). If you have a current bank loan on your car, RTA must approve the loan transfer before the final sale. You can also ask for a deposit from the buyer while getting your car inspected by RTA.

If your car is bank financed, it is hard to find a dealer as a buyer. This is due to an enormous amount of documentation needed to transfer the loan and to pay off the loan first. This creates a lot of work for you as the seller.


When selling a car personally in Dubai, it's best to take a deposit from the potential buyer. Be wary of people who want to pay the full amount upfront or with postdated checks. These people could be running a scam on you and turn down their offers.


Challenges You Face In Buying A Car Personally 


Selling a car can be difficult, as well as buying a car in Dubai. You can also get scammed or tricked when buying a car. There are several factors in buying a new car as well.

Price offers

The first choice is figuring out what is your buying price. If you look at online prices, there is usually a 40%-60% fluctuation in price, depending on the demand for the car. The specs of the car, color and make, and model are also deciding factors of price. 

Condition of the car

Look for any signs of physical damages to the car which shows the physical condition of the car. There are several signs that a car has been in an accident, like a paint job, rust, or dents. You can also get a car tested for a fee. If you're getting a car from the United States, get a Carfax report, which provides a history of the car with the car's 17-digit VIN. Dubai residents can also check the Abu Dhabi Police website for an entire car history. 

Odometer status

Another factor is checking to see if they have tampered with the odometer. You can pay 100 Dehram and someone can reverse 100,000km on your car. You can also get a service check as well on the odometer.

Payment scams,

Avoid giving money to the seller before registering the car under your name. Make sure the seller is present when you go to register the car. Check the car's traffic fines at the Dubai Police website.
