What’s the problem with private sales?
Firstly, there's the time involved in searching for your perfect car. Private sales don't give you all the information you need to make an informed choice, so you spend hours scrolling through adverts for inappropriate vehicles hoping that the one you want will eventually come to light. That time wasted is time you could have spent on much more productive activities.
Secondly, you're buying an 'unknown'. A private seller will not be able to guarantee that the car has been fully serviced, maintained and checked thoroughly. You'll also need to check that there is no outstanding finance on the vehicle and that all the paperwork is in order. That’s all additional hassle you don’t need.
Thirdly, and most importantly, you could be paying well over the market value for a pre-owned car. Obviously, every seller wants to get the best price for their vehicle. It’s actually cheaper to go to a dealership, where you’ll be charged the market value and not an over-inflated ‘guestimate’ that could leave you out of pocket.
The advantages of buying a car from a dealer
The good news is that all of these issues can be eliminated by buying your next pre-owned car from a dealer. To start with, you can sell your car to a dealer for the genuine market value. This process is quick, simple, and puts the money in your bank account in an hour. Alternatively, you can set the funds you get from selling your car to the dealership towards your next pre-owned vehicle. That means you could not only afford to upgrade, but you could also take advantage of a host of special offers, cutting the cost even more.
Then there's the peace of mind aspect. At Al-Futtaim Automall, we offer a one-year/20,000km extensive warranty on every car we sell. We also issue a genuine mileage certification to ensure that the mileage on the clock is 100% accurate and hasn't been tampered with. Before any pre-owned cars for sale hit the forecourt or the website, our trained technicians carry out a 99-point service check to comprehensively examine every part of the vehicle.
