Testimonials

Amazing service. It was so easy, hassle-free right from the beginning I engaged Carswitch to sell my car. Kudos to Sufiyan who was exceptional throughout the final process of handing over the car to the buyer and staying till the very end to ensure for a smooth transition. Thanks Sufiyan!
Sachin Bhagat
A great buying experience. All the details of the car were clear and accurate as it can be from a basic inspection. They saved me lots of time and money which i would have paid to make any initial inspection on a car. Their representative UTHMAN was very decent, helpful and responsive. The only issue i had was that the car papers weren’t finished with the seller’s bank when i reserved the car, which made me wait 8 days before getting the car. Overall, a great experience.
Mostafa Nasef
I sold my car today through carswitch. Their service is very systematic and transparent. Really appreciate few points when comparing even other branded competitor - They're not demotivate the seller about desired price. Seller can monitor live information about buyer's enquiry and know about market pulse. Initial advertising cost is very reasonable 50dhs including technician's visit at seller's place for inspection & photos.

Kamran and Sufiyan helped the seller and me by facilitating the sale and guiding through the process.
Adil Khan
I loved their service. They were so quick to connect us to the buyer and get us the best deal. Also the after sale service was quick as the staff was present with us until we go the car transferred under our name. What I liked also is the website is up to date and once the car is sold the update is done on the website unlike other sites where I always find out that the car was sold long time back. Thank you Carswitch team

We bought a car through carswitch and thanks to Imtiaz, Sameer and Mohammad Ashar, the process was seemless and stress-free. Being new in the country they were very kind and patient to explain to me the processes and the requirements involved for the registration, insurance, etc. We will definitely go back to them if we want to sell or buy a car.

Amazing experience... will recommend everyone buying or selling the car to use Car Switch. Such a cumbersome process made super super simple . I already bought a car in 2019 using carswitch and again bought another yesterday (8th Dec 2021). They help me sell my old car and used that money to buy a even more greater car. Yesterday from 10am to 1pm I was able to complete both the old car sell and buying the new car. All the very best CarSwitch... Keep up the great work.

Got my car sold by carswitch. Thanks to Adham and Mohammad Ashar
Haseeb Javed Raja
Being new to Dubai, I wasn't sure about the buying process, inspections, mechanics, etc. CarSwitch has made the process stress-free and easy. I felt comfortable buying from their site knowing a full inspection was already conducted, history report was available, and photos of all damage were shown. This site saved me from driving all over the city looking at vehicles only to be disappointed once I saw the vehicle in-person. Mohammad Ashar is amazing. He stayed with me and the seller the whole morning at the RTA, even working through his break time, to make sure the process was completed. He answered all of my questions and was so helpful. Thank you Mohammad!! Definitely would recommend to everyone. A+!
Mike Tedesco

Advertising through classifieds or Social Media Another option for sellers is to sell their used car in UAE through social media platforms or listing it on classified websites. The advantage of this option is it’s very often free of charge, though a major drawback with selling through these channels is the hassle of coordinating and hassling with strangers while making sure you don’t get ripped off.

Transferring Ownership of your car is a tricky process hence a managed service (CarSwitch.com) is here to help. Sell your car with CarSwitch and we will guide you through the entire process from bringing you serious buyers to transferring ownership of your used car. Still interested in transferring your car on your own? Below are the steps and documents you require to do so.

Before transferring ownership, sellers must ensure the buyer has a valid UAE resident visa, a UAE driver license, and an insurance certificate. The seller needs to have the mulkiya, Emirates ID, passport with residence visa, and confirmation of loan payment/transfer of loan if the car is on loan. Once these documents are attained, an RTA appointment can be scheduled.
At the RTA:

  • Sellers should clear any outstanding fines - please note whilst most fines can be dealt with at the RTA quickly, there are some fines such as violations that have received black points in another Emirate which will need to be cleared before you organise a visit to the RTA.
  • Buyers should fill out a vehicle permit application form at the typing centre.
  • Get your car inspected - A successful basic inspection is a prerequisite by the RTA before transferring ownership. Therefore, sellers should consider fixing major faults before the RTA visit. 2 main reasons for failing the inspection are worn down tires or brakes. It’s highly recommended that the buyer does a comprehensive inspection at RTA to have a good understanding of the car condition at the point of purchase.
  • Transferring the car - Once the above steps are cleared, a vehicle registration fee must be paid in order for the new registration card to be issued. A further license plate printing fee must be paid if applicable for this to be issued. Sellers can hand over their existing license plate to the RTA for a fee if they want to hold it for future car registration.
  • Salik Tag - Seller’s should remove their salik tag from the car to avoid the buyer using their tag. Buyer’s can purchase a new salik tag at the RTA.
It is important to note that the car transfer process gets a lot more complicated for selling cars under loan or transferring a car to a buyer who is financing the car/residing in another emirate from the seller! BUT… Don't worry! CarSwitch is here to help.

CarSwitch will guide you through the transfer with free access to our partner lane at Tasjeel and provide step-by-step instructions to ensure you’re well prepared. For more information, you can also read up on how to transfer your car at the RTA.

If you sell your car, you have to cancel the car insurance. There is also an alternative option of transferring this to the new owner. However, you will need to confirm if this is possible from your insurance provider. To cancel your insurance policy, all you need is a copy of the new registration card from the new car owner. It is also worth checking if your insurance is refundable as you might get some money back on your original premium depending on your insurance provider. On the other hand, to transfer your car insurance to the new owner, you will need: Existing policy document No objection letter from the seller New application form Registration certificate Car Inspection Report This should be done immediately after transferring ownership of the car because failure to do so would mean any insurance claims will not be paid by the insurance company if there is an accident. Sounds like a complicated process? A managed service (CarSwitch.com) is here to help!

Still paying off your car loan? A car under finance can be sold, although this is a complex process with a high level of risk involved. Looking for a managed service you can trust to take care of this instead? - CarSwitch.com can help you through the entire process whilst you sit back and relax!

To sell your car which is currently under loan - first, you will need to contact your bank to find out the outstanding loan amount as well as the early settlement fee if applicable. Once you know the exact outstanding amount, the 2 options you have to sell your car is:

  • Find a buyer willing to clear your auto loan
    In order to guarantee the buyer that the transfer of ownership will be done to their name once the auto loan is cleared, a “Seller's Agreement” will be required to be signed. The buyer will then need to visit the bank with the seller for the loan payment. The safest method to make this payment is via cash or manager's cheque.
  • Search for a buyer who is willing to buy the car on finance
    In this scenario, the buyer has to agree to use the same bank as the seller. Once the buyer agrees to this and approval for auto loan transfer has been received by the bank, the buyer needs to present a car valuation certificate against the loan amount. CarSwitch can organize this certificate for a cost starting from AED 300. Once this certificate is obtained, the seller can settle the owed amount with the bank. The buyer will need to provide the bank with the new registration card along with insurance papers to complete the transfer and close the loan.
    Sounds complicated and want a safe and secure way to sell your car which is currently under loan?
CarSwitch can handle it for you, through our partner network, and do it all the time! We’ll arrange for a legal seller agreement through our partner network to keep the buyer protected. Trust us. We know how to sell cars in Dubai :) You can also read our full guide to selling cars under bank financing to find out more.

If you can afford to clear the outstanding balance when selling your car, then do so and check with the bank to ensure that they have electronically notified the RTA that your loan has been settled. If you cannot afford to do so, the next step is to sell your car to a buyer who is willing to pay off the loan in cash. Depending on how much is outstanding in your car loan and the fair value of your car, you can ask for the entire amount plus a little extra, the exact amount outstanding, or an amount less than the outstanding loan. For this, you will need to ask the bank how much is needed to settle your loan including any early settlement fees. Then, sign a seller’s agreement or Power of Attorney that would give the buyer power to transfer the car to his/her name once he/she clears your bank loan. These documents can be secured through a Notary Public or an authorised supplier of seller’s agreements.
Next, ask the buyer to meet you at the bank with the money, preferably in the form of cash or a certified manager’s cheque for the value of the car. At the bank, the buyer can hand over the relevant amount to the bank to clear the loan. The buyer can take the car home at this point. To complete the transfer of ownership, however, they will be required to go to the RTA once the bank electronically informs the RTA that the car is no longer under mortgage.

If you have moved out of the U.A.E for any reason and you haven’t been able to export or sell your car, the steps to selling your car in Dubai from abroad are as follows:
Get a power of attorney drafted by a professional so that it clearly and precisely conveys your situation. It is also important to appoint as your agent someone you trust or a professional firm that offers POA services. After your POA has been prepared, you will need to sign it in the presence of a notary or a solicitor, depending on the laws of the country you are signing it. In return, a notary or a solicitor will also sign the POA and state that the document was “witnessed by” him or her and the appropriate, usually embossed seal is placed.
The next step is to get it legalised by a foreign affairs department. This is important since you intend to use the POA in the UAE, i.e., outside of the country where you signed it. Legalization is a process whereby a government body (usually, a ministry of foreign affairs) confirms that the signature of a solicitor or notary on the POA is valid and should be recognized in the U.A.E. Once your POA is legalized by the ministry of foreign affairs or equivalent authority, then you can contact the UAE Embassy or Consulate in the country where you signed your POA or nearest country to get it attested. The second last step is to legalize your POA by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) in the UAE. To complete this step, you do not necessarily have to be personally present in the UAE and anyone can do it on your behalf. Finally, you need to get the POA translated into Arabic by a certified legal translator, if the POA was done in a foreign language. It is important to note that the translator must be licensed by the UAE Ministry of Justice.
Once the POA is legalized and in place, your agent can now represent you during the transfer process. As a seller, you need to clear any outstanding finance you have availed from a bank to sell your car. Once the loan is paid off, your bank informs the Road and Transport Authority (RTA) to update the records and clear the loan from the RTA system. The RTA will send a SMS text message to you when the records are updated. This usually takes 24-48 hours. Next, your vehicle can be transferred to a new owner only after it passes a vehicle test of the RTA. After checking the vehicle, the RTA issues a test certificate and stamps either “Passed” or “Failed”. If the result is “Failed”, the test certificate contains the list of problems that need to be fixed in the vehicle. To avoid possible last-minute surprises, it is best for you or your agent to evaluate your vehicle at one of the RTA vehicle test centres ahead of advertising. It is important to check and clear fines on your vehicle, as all fines must be cleared before you sell any car in Dubai.
Once the vehicle test is done successfully and all fines are cleared, the buyer can now proceed to get an insurance for the vehicle. If your existing insurance policy has 7 months or more remaining, the policy can be transferred, provided the new owner meets the required criteria of the insurance company. The final step is to transfer the ownership of the vehicle. You, as a seller, or your authorised agent with a valid POA for Vehicle Sale, should be present at the point of transfer with the valid identification document plus a valid test certificate.
After verifying the documents, the RTA representative asks the parties to sign a sale and purchase agreement and the buyer pays the purchase price to either you, or your authorised agent and the transfer fees to the RTA.

If you have moved out of the U.A.E for any reason and you haven’t been able to sell your car, the steps to sell your car from abroad are as follows:
Get a power of attorney drafted by a professional so that it clearly and precisely conveys your situation.

The second last step is to legalize your POA by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) in the UAE. To complete this step, you do not necessarily have to be personally present in the UAE and anyone can do it on your behalf. Finally, you need to get the POA translated into Arabic by a certified legal translator, if the POA was done in a foreign language. It is important to note that the translator must be licensed by the UAE Ministry of Justice.

When you plan on selling your car in Abu Dhabi that is registered in Dubai, the vehicle ownership must be transferred accordingly to reflect the new legal liabilities of the vehicle owner. The first step is to clear all outstanding traffic fines incurred. Next, the loan, if applicable, must be settled with the bank before you sell any car in Dubai. Additionally, your insurance must be terminated or transferred, if applicable, to the buyer or else the buyer will need to purchase a new insurance policy. The documents required by you are the mulkiya (vehicle registration card), passport with residence visa (original and copy), original emirates ID, and a confirmation of final loan payment if applicable. Before the vehicle can be registered in Abu Dhabi, it must be unregistered in Dubai and marked for export. The vehicle will be transferred via recovery truck from Dubai to Abu Dhabi as you cannot drive an unregistered vehicle. Once it reaches Abu Dhabi, the buyer can proceed with registering the vehicle.

You can sell any car in Dubai in the 30-day grace period after your visa expires/is cancelled. Within this period, you can present your passport as valid ID at the RTA.

Our primary motivation is to get you the absolute best price possible, and so if you have a couple of days of time we always encourage you to post the car at an attractive price and we’ll secure an end user buyer in no time at all hassle free (as we’ll handle it all from fielding phone calls to attending test drives in your location).

How to Sell Cars in Dubai

Looking for ways to sell your car in Dubai? CarSwitch offers a safe, transparent, fast and hassle-free way to do so. We manage the whole process for selling your car while you sit back and relax. Now you can get the best price for your car without any hassles.

Common challenges faced by sellers

While it has become easier than ever before to buy and sell any car in Dubai, you can still face many challenges during the process. If you are planning to sell your car online in Dubai, then be sure to keep the following factors in mind.

  1. Setting the right price: From depreciation to competition and demand in the market, you have to consider multiple factors while figuring out the price tag for your car. This means that it’s often challenging to set the right price without some help from experts. That's why we've made our proprietary car valuator available for free.

  2. The time factor: Selling a car involves multiple steps such as making calls and dealing with used car buyers who might not even be serious. It goes without saying that it can prove to be a very lengthy process.

  3. Negotiating the price: It takes practice to master the art of negotiation, and unless you’ve sold multiple cars, you might not be able to get the right amount of money from buyers.

  4. It’s a complicated process: You may need guidance to complete some of the steps. For example, sellers need to understand the steps involved in clearing their auto loan, refunding insurance, and transferring their car at the RTA. If the car is under bank financing, then a seller’s agreement can be used to protect both the seller and the buyer.
