CarSwitch, the first-ever certified used car concierge service in the UAE, has recently announced the much-anticipated introduction of its advanced online platform (www.carswitch.com), where purchasers can access certified used cars available directly from their owners. A fresh alternative to conventional dealers and online classifieds, the service warranties and certifies every vehicle based on the findings of a complete 200-point inspection displayed online.
The beauty of CarSwitch is that it is for free and provides complete transparency and confidence in the quality of cars and access to better prices through direct seller-to-buyer deals. In addition, sellers are rid of the arduous process of selling their cars through an end-to-end concierge service, including inspecting and photographing each vehicle, as well as fielding phone calls, arranging viewings, and managing the paperwork to close a transaction.
During the debut of the platform, Imad Hammad, Co-Founder & CEO of CarSwitchl, said that they are extremely thrilled about unveiling CarSwitch in the UAE, which they believe would usher a new era of confidence, transparency, and convenience in used car transactions. He added that their direct seller-to-buyer model guarantees that more value is retained by the seller and buyer, while their 200-point inspections, the added concierge service and warranties offer peace of mind and convenience to their customers.
While it is true that the UAE’s used car market space is significant—with 350,000-370,000 cars sold last year—it has seen small innovation in recent years. Customers are still locked between fragmented dealers that offer a fraction of the car’s value to offset their significant cost base, or online classifieds where end-users should field endless calls themselves and navigate often complicated transactions and paperwork.
The CarSwitch website features a clean, simple design despite the huge amount of information it displays across a range of certified used cars in Dubai. Purchasers can see a validated view of each car’s feature set, warranty details, specifications, as well as the results of a complete 200-point check online. The “Scratches” view is another attractive feature where purchasers can see pictures of every scratch on the car directly on the site.
Moreover, CarSwitch enables sellers to submit their sell requests online through a few clicks. Then, it takes over sending certified specialists to the seller’s doorstep to take professional quality photos, perform the 200-point inspection, and complete the car’s online profile that CarSwitch advertises and manages end-to-end.
