Selling Your Car Via Classified Ads Placement (Free / Paid) – 6 Ways

1- Dubizzle.com – Dubizzle is the first thing that comes to everyone’s mind when searching for used products. Placing your car’s ad on Dubizzle increases the chances of quick sale. However, please remember that Dubizzle charges you for placing ad for the car. You may want to consider free classified options.   

2- YallaMotor

3- LoCanTo

4- AutoDealer

5- AutoSouk

6- Carooza

Tips to Remember:

  • If your car has small issues, it’s better to fix those prior to placing the advertisement on the above mentioned portals.
  • Check the rates of cars with similar model, mileage and year (on these portals). This will give you the idea on what to set the sale price.
  • Do not expect that your car will be sold for the price you set. There is always bargaining 5% to 10% (and sometimes more) bargaining margin.

Points to Remember:

  • Car buying companies usually have agents/technicians for quick assessment which saves a lot of time.
  • You can directly visit these companies (or via prior appointment) without placing. 
  • If the deal is finalized, the company will pay you in cash on the spot. They will take your Mulkiya (Car ownership card) and will do the RTA process themselves. You don’t need to go with them.
