There are different ways to sell a car in Dubai and everything depends on the amount of time you are willing to invest to get the most out of your car. Let’s discuss all the possible ways one by one.

I will sell the car by myself

If you are willing to sell your vehicle by yourself then you must know all the specs of your car. The process is simple but can take a lot of time as you need to show your car to all possible interested buyers until you get the right value for your car.

1)Post an Ad on Dubizzle

Dubizzle is a leading advertisement platform in UAE. You need to take good pictures of the interior and exterior of your car. You can post up to ten pictures on Dubizzle. Currently, Dubizzle charges 199 AED exclusive of 5% Vat so make sure you post it like a pro.

2) Do proper research on pricing?

You must know the actual value of your car so invest some time to determine the right price. You can get a fair idea by looking at the other cars with similar specs posted on the Dubizzle. Don’t post the ads at a very high price, be reasonable and flexible.

3) Negotiating the Price

There are many potential buyers who will come to your place to check the cars and you need to have the required pertinence to get the desired price. Do not commit any price over the phone. These are mostly the dealers and even if you agree with the price with them over the phone you may not end up selling at that price because when they will show up, they will give you a price that might not be up to your expectations. To sell a car at your expected price, you need to wait for the end users. The process can take time but that’s the best way to sell any car at the best value.

Let Others sell my car

There are companies that can sell your car on your behalf. The whole process will be handled by these companies and they will take care of all the hassle involved in selling vehicles in UAE.

Cash my car for Instant cash

If you don’t have much time and you are looking for a reasonable price to sell your car then you can sell to companies that provide instant cash for your car.

The companies like BeepUAE are authorized by RTA to handle all the paperwork. All you need to do is to book an appointment with them. Their inspectors will check the car and will give a final buying offer and if agree with the offer you need to sign their vehicle sale’s contract. The payments are made by cash on the spot.


Selling your car in Dubai, at the right price and without the involved hassle, can be really time consuming. If you do not want to get into the process of haggling with potential buyers, you can opt for the companies that offer instant cash for your car. Obviously, the choice is yours and you should do your due diligence before signing on the dotted line.

Best of luck with selling your car and getting the new and shiny ride.
