Ubada Ali
I'd definitely recommend Car switch. My experience with Car switch was excellent. I paid the deposit, and a week later received the car as the seller wanted to fix few things. During this week the employees kept updating me, and asking if I need any help. They also got me insurance quotations and finished the insurance process through them. I'd also thank Sufiyan, as he was there at Tasjeel and helped me through all the steps for 2 days in a row. Also Anthony the sales guy, he was so nice and professional.

CarSwitch was very easy to work with and made the process of selling my car quick and painless. The app is user friendly and easy to use, with regular updates coming through on how the car ad is performing. Their people are great too. Both Kamran and Sufiyan were punctual, professional, and very knowledgable about the procedures involved in transferring ownership of a car in Dubai. Sufiyan took the buyer and me through it all step by step at the registration centre, so that all the documentation was done and the car officially sold. Overall, I'd say the fee is definitely worth the hassle-free experience.

Buying a car through CARSWITCH was overall a pleasant experience. The whole process was a smooth sailing because of good guidance at each stage from booking a viewing to the final registration. We thank Sufiyan, who was extremely helpful with his impartial advices during the two comprehensive tests we did and the way he assisted us and the seller in the vehicle transfer process at RTA Tasjeel, Al Barsha. We thank and appreciate the work and professional attitude of Muhammad Shanib, Vickey, Sanjay, Mohammad, and Kamran as well. The entire team deserves 5 stars apart from only the technical team, where there is still a slight gap for improvement to provide a more accurate car report and overall scoring. Having said that, please note that this team is the primary reason why all prospective ‘used car’ buyers should go with CARSWITCH in future and is highly recommended.

Sufian from Car switch was extremely responsive, helpful, courteous and professional! He went over and above to try to make sure the closing of the buying process for me was as smooth as possible.
