“We understand that buying a used car can come with a certain level of anxiety and selling one can also be a daunting process. As a traditionally online company, dubizzle pro now takes our expertise offline and provides our users with a trusted partner for their needs through a series of all-new, hassle-free services, making the entire process quicker, easier and far more transparent,” commented Matthew Davidson, head of dubizzle pro.
BuyerAssist is an assisted buying solution that extends through the entire purchasing process – from researching and shortlisting a car based on the buyer’s preferences and needs, through to test driving and inspecting it on the buyer’s behalf. Buyers can either opt for the full service or short-list a car of interest themselves before engaging with dubizzle pro.
The relatively more experienced buyer can still engage dubizzle pro to conduct a pre-purchase inspection. An appointment is then arranged with the seller(s) directly for a comprehensive, 120-point inspection. Upon completion, the buyer instantly receives a report detailing the car’s current condition along with any areas that require attention. Ultimately, this empowers the buyer with reliable information to either negotiate prices or consider other options.
For people looking to sell their car, SellerAssist is an assisted selling solution that takes care of the process entirely on their behalf. Cars listed through dubizzle pro are given the best possible exposure on dubizzle with professional photographs, a featured listing, and a fair market price to help sell the car in as quickly as possible. From that point, dubizzle pro manages calls where only serious buyers end up viewing the car. As the sale reaches an amicable closure, price negotiation with prospective buyers and the ownership transfer are also part of the managed transaction for total peace of mind.
Thousands of satisfied customers opted for assisted selling in the 2 years it has been offered, with most cars selling in under 20 days.
As for car owners looking for general assistance, ProAssist offers help when it comes to renewing a car’s registration and providing evaluation certificates for car loan applications.
“Life in the UAE is very fast-paced so essentially, we want to give people some of their time back by removing the hassles they face while buying or selling a car. In 2017, we launched our assisted selling service which proved very successful, but it also led to the realization that there was still a gap in the used car market for more tailored services. dubizzle pro makes buying or selling a second-hand car stress-free and more convenient at every touchpoint. It also accounts for car owners who need support with maintaining their vehicle and having the registration renewed every year,” commented Davidson.
“Our partnership with three of the leading local and international banks not only makes purchasing a used car more accessible for our users but also highlights the level of trust that they have in the comprehensive inspection provided by dubizzle pro,” he concluded.
dubizzle pro services are available for buyers and sellers in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, and Ajman by signing up through the dubizzle website or app, calling the dubizzle pro dedicated call center or by visiting dubizzle pro stations at Tasjeel Al Barsha, Tasjeel Al Qusais, First Avenue Mall Motor City and the Mushrif car inspection and registration department in Abu Dhabi
