When financing a car, all banks require a valuation certificate from an authorised valuator to confirm the value of the car - CarSwitch can help
If you're buying a car with a service contract, confirm with the agency it is indeed transferrable!
Every car on CarSwitch is from a private seller, but we've inspected every one and put the results online so you save your time! All free
Clear your loan in advance, and make sure you've received the RTA SMS that's it done as Banks may miss notifying RTA
If your CarSwitch inspection score is below 4.0, you car may fail the RTA inspection and so consider getting minor repairs done
If your tires are older than 4 years, or brakes worn out, get them changed before transfer as the car will fail RTA inspection
When transferring your car at the RTA, don't forget to bring your Emirates ID and Car Mulkiya
Did you know you can hold on to your license plate number when selling your car? The RTA can hold them just for you for 3 months
Your asking price will determine how long it takes to sell your car, get it done right by checking carswitch.com/carvaluator
Never accept a personal cheque to sell your car, it might bounce! Cash, or manager's cheque, is king
Check if your insurance policy is refundable, you might get some money back once you complete the sale
Don't forget to get a copy of the new registration card after sale, you'll need it to cancel your insurance
If the value of your car is less than 10 times what you're paying for collision or comprehensive insurance then the coverage isn't a good deal.
Keep your service records! It's critical to getting a better price when selling your car, extended warranty is another big plus for buyers
Can't clear your loan? CarSwitch can get you a Seller Agreement (500 AED) so a buyer clears your loan for you
Only the registered owner can sell a car, if they're not available a valid and attested Power of Attorney required
Seller Agreement trumps a Power of Attorney, as the former cannot be cancelled
Don't forget to clear outstanding fines before transfer, some violations will require an in person visit to clear
After transfer, don't forget to remove the Salik Tag. Salik won't refund the balance though :(
Verify your service contract and warranty are actually transferrable to a new owner before placing your ad
If never kept service history receipts, you can ask your service center for a summary statement of your visits
Your insurance policy can be expanded to cover specific, or all, GCC countries in case you're a frequent traveller
Never agree to a buyer paying you in installments, ask them to apply for bank financing so you get paid in full up-front
If you're registering the car in another Emirate you'll likely need to transport it on a flat-bed truck which will cost AED +200 depending on the distance
If you're transfering a car from Abu Dhabi you can get Export plates valid for 3 days

CarSwitch arranges for a specialist to run a 1 hour assessment of your used car to gauge its condition. During the inspection, the Specialist will take professional photos, examine the interior & exterior, assess the condition of the engine and go on a test drive with you to make sure that the main components in your used car works as they should.

The results of the inspection are displayed online which helps us answer most buyers' questions and only refer you serious buyers! In addition, transparency on the fantastic condition of your car increases your car's price! Please note, CarSwitch does not warranty inspection results, particularly as the results may change from the time of inspection, and so buyers may request their own inspection at their own expense with your approval.

The process is easy and hassle-free. The Specialist will visit you anywhere in Dubai, Sharjah or Abu Dhabi and you only need to be present for 10-15 mins, of the full hour, to answer some questions and go for a test drive. Car selling made easy for the busy UAE residents.

We charge AED 150 (+VAT) admin fee which includes organizing a specialist visit to inspect / photo, handling calls, filtering car buyers and arranging test drives. When we sell your car a success-based fee of AED 1,000 up to 3% (+VAT) will apply (depending on the value of your car but agreed with you up-front) which you can build into your car price. This fee is applicable only if we are able to help you sell your car. We take all the headaches for selling your car while you get the best price! Your Used Car for Sale in Dubai will go quickly and without hassle!

We will work hard to help you sell your car anywhere in UAE. However, if you end up selling your car on your own then our success-based fee won’t apply. In addition, we will still guide you through the process to make sure that the transfer of car ownership at the RTA is a hassle free experience. We only ask that if you post your car on another platform, that you match the listing price you select on CarSwitch to give us a fair shot.

Selling car couldn't be easier!

We can handle it, through our partner network, and do it all the time!
