Buying used cars from car dealers is more advantageous than getting them from private sellers and there are many reasons why you should choose this option over the other. Firstly, each car passes through a rigorous inspection before being put for sale and a certification as well as a vehicle history report are usually provided, so you can be sure you purchase a car that meets the mechanical and appearance standards you expect. Secondly, choosing to buy a car directly from the owner can be time consuming, as you might need to go to different places to see the options you have. In the case of a dealer, you have a great selection of cars of different makes and models and even if you are interested in a specific model from a specific year, usually you have more options to choose from in the same place. Also, all vehicles provided by dealers are insured, so you can test drive as many as you want without any risk. Furthermore, if you do not have the possibility to pay for it when you purchase it, the dealers can help you complete all the credit applications needed so that you can get the approval faster. They take care of the entire financing process and you do not need to go to different places to complete paperwork and stand in long lines for the approval of the credit. However, the only downside of choosing to work with a dealer could be that there is less room for negotiating the price of a vehicle.
There are plenty of dealers in Dubai who offer all types of used cars, from cheaper alternative to luxurious options, at the most competitive prices. American and Japanese brands are very popular in the region, but you can also choose from a great selection of models from European brands too. Before deciding on a specific model, take into consideration your available budget or the possibility to get financing for covering the cost of the desired vehicle. Although all of the cars provided by dealers have passed an inspection, it is advisable that before you choose the most suitable one to check its exterior for rust, check the mileage, get a feel of the engine by doing a drive test, get to know the history of the vehicle, including how many owners it previously had and whether it had been involved in any accidents and most importantly, verify if its specifications meet the UAE requirements.
