Selling a car in Dubai

Caller/loser: "Hello sir/ma'am, in light of today's current economic downturn, I know you have your car listed for 24,000 AED, but I vood like to offer you you 12,000 AED........"

Me: "Huh?"

Looser: "Vell, you know der is a global financial crisis and prices are being cut"

Me: "yeah, and so...."

Looser: "Vell, I would like to offer you fair market value"

Me: "My car is the best value of it's kind for sale, it is realistically priced, check it out"

Lowlife: "Ve have, and 12k is out last price offer"

ME: "that's great, thanks for wasting my time and I hope you burn in hell, get bent"

Twat: "getting what?"

Me: "GET BENT, GET LOST, LOOSE MY NUMBER, BEAT IT, I'D SOONER SMASH THE CAR TO BITS WITH YOUR FACE THAN SELL IT TO YOU FOR 12K, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?"

Shit-tard: "Ve thought ve could help you in this time to raise some money"

Me:"I don't recall writing 'desperate' in the ad. The car is for sale, 24,000AED, not a fil less. And how can you make an offer without seeing it or driving it?"

Bobbler: "Ve just look at the ads and make a guess"

Me: "Guess again, asshole"

What is wrong with these guys? I have never in my life looked at a used car ad in the paper or online and thought "I like that, I will call at random and offer half, never seeing it, driving it or knowing why they are asking the price they are". In Canada, you would be laughed off the street, and no one would ever dream of offering something so embarrasing. Why is it so here? Is it the bargaining mentality? Fair enough, but have a goddamn reason, not just an arbitrary figure in your head or think you "know how it works".

'cause you're wrong, cuz! I have for sale a very nice BMW Z3. Low miles, great paint, great condition and all service records. The price is listed as 24,000AED, not 48,000AED hoping to get half. 24k. That's the price. 12k? Wha? No, 24k. For 12k I would honestly destroy the car in front of potential buyers. I would take donations, call all potential ass-hat buyers together then proceed to get Medeival on the car and smash it to bits.

I hate you, car buyer. That is why I put my email on the ad, not my number, hoping to pre-screen you assholes. Sorry if I am abrasive on the phone, but I am over your shit!

end rant


UPDATE:

2 nice gentlemen came to view the car. One Spanish fellow, one Brit. Both said they had done their research and felt that the car was worth the asking price. BOTH offered full price, and are in a bidding war with each other. Looks like there are some normal people in this city that know a deal when they get it and don't push their luck. The new owner gets his new buggy Saturday. Good news.

Now I don't want to sell it (of course).

Good day !.
You re, I guess , probably curious to know how one can collect a huge starting capital .
There is no need to invest much at first. You may commense to receive yields with as small sum of money as 20-100 dollars.

AimTrust is what you thought of all the time
The company incorporates an offshore structure with advanced asset management technologies in production and delivery of pipes for oil and gas.

It is based in Panama with affiliates everywhere: In USA, Canada, Cyprus.
Do you want to become a happy investor?
That`s your chance That`s what you desire!

I`m happy and lucky, I started to get income with the help of this company,
and I invite you to do the same. It`s all about how to select a proper partner utilizes your money in a right way - that`s it!.
I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only!
It`s easy to get involved , just click this link http://zikypove.arcadepages.com/lunupemu.html

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I begin to get real money.
It's all about how to choose a proper companion who uses your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the income with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:

selling your car need not be a big worry for you as a number of options are always available one of them is the
we buy any car firms, contact them or you can Unlike buying a new car, selling a used car involves a good amount of time and research to market your car well to get a good price. It is important to note that selling your used car on your own can get you a higher price than trading it through a car dealer. In fact, you can actually expect to get or gain more than the wholesale price. Selling your car yourself also takes a lot more work than just driving to the dealership for a trade-in. Decide a competitive price of your car,Advertise your used car effectively,Present your used car in the best possible manner

I think what you published was very logical. However, what about this?
suppose you wrote a catchier title? I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your blog, however what if you added a headline that makes people desire more? I mean "Selling a car in Dubai" is kinda plain. You should look at Yahoo's home page and see how they write post titles to get people to open the links.

You might add a related video or a related pic or two to get readers excited about what you've written. In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.

Keep these in mind when selling a car in Dubai.

1. Should check the status of your car loan and clear off all the finances before selling it.
2. Putting an advertisement notice on the car window is illegal.
3. Formulate an ad only in supermarket notice boards, online websites, newspapers and magazines.
