The dawn of the Internet has changed the way we buy and sell, not least when it comes to how to sell your car. Gone are the days of taking out an advert in the classifieds section of your local paper and hoping for the best. Instead, cyberspace has opened up a range of options that enable you to achieve that quick and easy sale. However, if you’re not tech-savvy or you’re not sure how to begin, let’s take a look at some simple ways to sell your car.
It’s probably the simplest method of attracting attention but putting a sign in your car’s windscreen or rear windows lets people know that you’re open for business. Be sure to include contact details and give a rough idea of the car price in UAE. On the plus side, there’s little in the way of expenditure. However, the downside of this approach is that you can be besieged by time-wasters, affectionately known in the trade as ‘tyre kickers.’
The internet is full of online sales sites, where you can upload images of your car, set an asking price, and fill in all the relevant details. The benefits of going about it this way are that you can find all the information you need about your car, by searching its registration. The only major obstacle is that there are so many of these sites around that it's hard to know which is the best one. On top of that, you may find registration and advertising fees involved or that the host will charge you a percentage of the sale value.
3) Put it up for auction
If you're desperate for a quick sale, a car auction might be the way forward. However, the problem here is that you're taking a gamble, particularly where the price is concerned. While they might sell used cars in Dubai, auctions can result in notorious losses for those hoping to maintain a healthy car resale value. In addition, you might find that there are fees to pay to the auction house, which could seriously reduce your chances of making your money back.
