Take your belongings out of the car

Give a detailed look inside the car to check if some belonging is there in the car. These things may be of so much value, maybe some important documents, or any other items. Have a look at the glove box, center console, pockets, doors and the cup holders. You must also check the truck, you may have kept the oil can, equipment, supplies, etc.

Don't forget to clean the interior of the car

When you are sure you are about to sell any car in Dubai and you are about to make the deal final, make sure to clean the car from inside. The dusting won't be enough, you should wash the seat covers and the mats too. Also, spray inside the car to get rid of any acute or unwanted smell. The interiors should smell fresh and look less like a used car. This is an important factor to sell your car. This will add value to your car.

Clean the exterior of your car

The outer look of the car plays an important role in selling and making it price worthy. Some people may have the psyche that when you are selling a used car, if it is old or untidy, it's not a big deal and they should not polish or wax the car when selling it.

Make basic repairs to boost the cost

Use good quality images

Try to take the picture from different angles, better lights and they should be clear too. Take the pictures from outside of the car, the interior of the car, trunk, engine, etc.

Keep the car documents in hand

It is one of the biggest mistake of the car seller that at the time of the deal and handing over the car, they don't have the complete documents with them. It may cause a delay in selling your car in Dubai. You should have the car registration and other documents ready with you.

Don't blindly trust the buyer

Make sure to have an open eye while dealing to sell any car in Dubai. There are many car buying scams with fake cheques and personal cheques with no balance in the bank account. After getting a potential buyer for your car, call them and ask them to meet you personally. Don't go alone at the meetup place. Take a friend or a relative with you. Also, don't agree to take a personal cheque for the car payment, ask them to give cash or a bank cheque.
