Insider tips from the experts

Worried about hidden damages? CarSwitch can visit the seller to inspect it for you and help you with insurance, finance and transfer for only AED 500
Third-party liability insurance is more affordable, but it only covers the other party's car
If you're under 25 insurance will cost you 10% more of the total damange even if the car was insured under an older person's name
Negotiate with your insurer! They may have built in bells and whistles you don't care for
Ask your insurer for a No Claims, or low mileage, Discount which gets better every year if you're driving safely
Ask for the service history! It'll give you a sense of how much care the seller put into the car
Service Contracts are not all equal, ask what's included (particularly if tires, brakes and battery is covered)
Did you know that even if a service contract has expired, its often renewable from the agency or a third party?
Cars that are +8 year old, or less than AED 25,000, often will not be financed by bank
Every vehicle has a unique VIN, located in the dashboard and door plate, which can help you determine the car history and features
Do NOT buy a car where the VIN in the Mulkiya does not match the one on the dashboard or door plate
If you're planning to sell the car soon, keep in mind that fancy customizations do not retain much value
A good deal isn't always the lowest price, review the history and condition of the car and make sure you're not going to be stuck fixing damages
Review the CarSwitch inspection to save you time in the search, but ask for a comprehensive inspection at the RTA before transfer to ensure condition hasn't changed
When buying a car, you'll need to get an insurance policy before you transfer ownership so research options in advance to get the best price
Did you know older models might higher interest rates when financing through a bank?
Ask CarSwitch for help in financing as you'll likely get a better rate and we can arrange the valuation certificate for you
Banks require 3 months bank statements to approve your loan, so if you just changed jobs you'll need to wait a bit
Negotiate your finance rates, processing fee and early payment penalty with your bank when financing a car as these may be negotiable!
3 main watch outs when buying a car, accidents, GCC specs, and tire / brake condition - all available in the CarSwitch inspection report!
If you're clearing a seller's loan, make sure you have a signed Seller Agreement to avoid any risks! (CarSwitch can get you one)
Don't ever pay the seller before the transfer of ownership, even if you're getting the car at a bargain
When buying a car with warranty, check with the dealer if it is valid AND transferrable
Bank financing is up to a maximum of 60 months, and is shorter for older cars
The minimum loan value for which banks are willing to finance is generally around AED 25,000
Your used car loan cannot be greater than half your salary less existing liabilities
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
