Are you an expat staying in Dubai for a limited period of time? If Yes, then the need for a car must top your priorities for the ease of mobility in Dubai.
Dubai is an exciting place to live, known world over as a holiday destination for everyone. If you happen to stay there for a limited period of time, then you would need a car to get around as the public transport services are limited. Since you live there temporarily, you could be more inclined towards buying a pre-owned or used car rather than a brand new car.
A sound decision!
Dubai is a huge hub for expatriates and auto enthusiasts, which makes for a commendable pre-owned car market. This market is not just huge, with respect to the number of cars being sold off, but the make and brand of cars available, make it a steal. Some of the luxury and sports car available in the market are not even a few years old yet their selling price is so much less than the new car, and you get to reap the benefits of the car still sold in its prime.
But not all pre-owned cars are in perfect conditions. Owners get car detailing done to make the car looking like new, but the damages to the internal systems need to be assesed. Car inspection services or pre purchase inspection services are being done by reputed car services garages to ascertain the extent of damage to the various systems of the car, so you could get a very good approximation value to the cost of ownership.
It is highly recommended to get the car inspection done by a service centre before you make the final call to buy the car. Pre-Purchase inspection is not something to be done or taken lightly. An expert mechanic will determine its cosmetic, mechanical and safety condition of the car. They’ll be able to zero on issues that are existing in the car and evaluate its potential to become either a huge problem or something quickly rectifiable. They’ll also investigate to make sure all previous damages are well repaired and are in good condition.
When the expert gives you a go-ahead after thoroughly scrutinizing under the hood, it will definitely add on to your confidence in buying the car.
What is included in the pre-purchase car inspection services?
