Colorful cars

What does your CAR’s color say about YOU?

Cars have seemingly endless variety of color options, designed to engage with all types of buyers. The very wide variety of cars’colors and types we see in streets, tells a lot, it can reflect the variance of styles and tastes, and it can sometimes tell us how picky people are when it comes to a car.

Whatever the reason, it cannot be denied that color plays a huge role in sales. Statistics say 85% of people like a car, juts because a specific color is making it unique, and 93% perceive the color and the visual appearance as the most important factors when it comes to buying a car, like for example I might fall in love with a Maroon color of #Chevrolet while I would never buy the black one.

Other buyers might be addicted to #Audi no matter what the colors are, it is just about owning Audi!

This is all .. Psychology.

A study conducted found that drivers of black cars were twice as likely to be involved in an accident as drivers of softer, cream-colored cars.

Bright colors are preferred by people who drive performance-based cars. This might justify the bright red color of the typical Ferrari.

What Your Car Color Says About YOU?

  • Silver: You are calm, cool, elegant, futuristic and possibly detached
  • White: You are fastidious, enjoy a simple life, have a strong attention to detail and are possibly a perfectionist
  • Green: You are trustworthy, traditional and balanced, but can also be lively and occasionally hysterical
  • Brown/Beige: You are practical, reliable, down-to-earth and pragmatic.
  • Yellow: You are upbeat, intelligent and young at heart
  • Grey: You are calm, sober and very career-driven

How to Keep Safe on the Road during Ramadan

The number of car accidents always goes up during Ramadan. Fasting from dawn until sunset can have many effects such as dizziness and dehydration.

We want you to be safe on the road during Ramadan, so we have compiled a list of tips that will help you avoid danger.

Identify when You’re Tired

The root of most car accidents during Ramadan is tiredness. It’s paramount that you know when you don’t have the energy to finish your journey.

There are several signs that you have to look out for while on the road:

  • You can’t remember the last kilometers you’ve driven. If your last memory was a while back, it is a sign that you are not paying enough attention to the road.
  • You constantly drift between lanes. If you cannot drive straight, it means you are exhausted.
  • You feel sluggish or can’t keep your head up. Many drivers around you may feel the same way. This symptom will affect your driving and put you at risk.
  • You keep nodding off and jolting back to reality. If this happens to you even a single time, you are too tired to be driving. You need to be able to concentrate on the road.

If you encounter any of these symptoms, it’s best that you pull over and have a quick nap. We know that you want to get home as fast as possible.

However, staying safe on the road during Ramadan is paramount. While tired, you may not recognize the danger in time or even fall asleep at the wheel.

How to Avoid Danger while Driving

It’s best if you don’t drive while tired altogether. With a bit of planning, this is easy. You could even use public transport during Ramadan to stay safe.

If that is not an option for you, these tips will help:

  • Start your journey early. To avoid traffic and unnecessary risks such as speeding or dangerous turns, leave sooner than others. If possible, take other, less used, routes than your usual ones. The fewer drivers around you, the safer you are.
  • Keep a close eye on the road and the weather. Even if you are the only one on the road, always pay attention to road signs and the weather. Drive accordingly.
  • Take a nap before driving if necessary. Finding a spot to pull over to sleep may be difficult at times. If you are tired and need to hit the road, take a short nap right before doing it.
  • Carpool when possible. If you know someone who makes the same journey as you, invite them to share a car. You can take turns while driving. This way, both of you get enough rest and stay safe on the road during Ramadan.
  • Stick to a schedule. Always get enough sleep. You will have more energy during the day. Light exercises are also beneficial if you find the time.

Following these principles takes no effort, and you will be much safer while driving.

Drive Cautiously to Be Safe on the Road during Ramadan

Even if you are well rested, other drivers may not be, and that can be dangerous for them as well as you. Keep your car clean and headlights on to be noticeable. 

Stay alert and keep an eye out for tired drivers around you. If someone loses control of their car, you need to be ready to swerve around them.

Ramadan is a time of solemnity and prayer. Be careful on the road so you can focus on what truly matters.

How to Sell Your Car in Dubai

How to Sell Your Car in Dubai

It can be quite arduous to sell your car in Dubai. Luckily, you don’t have to do everything yourself. Actually, you don’t have to do much at all if you go to the right place. Selling a car can take several days of running around or thirty minutes of waiting. Let’s go over these two options in more detail.

How to Sell Your Car in Dubai by Yourself

The process of selling a car has many steps. It includes finding a trustworthy buyer, doing checkups on the vehicle and lots of paperwork.

Advertising

The first step is to advertise so that you find a buyer. Don’t hang a sign on the car window. It’s illegal, and it will get your car impounded.

Also, asking around in real life, on social media and forums is not smart. You risk running into scammers. These incidents are all too common, unfortunately.

Thus, the only options left are buying expensive ads or exchanging your vehicle at a dealer. Either way, you are losing money because the dealer will probably offer you a lousy price. These are your options if you want to sell your car in Dubai on your own.

Selling

Once you found someone who wants to buy your car, you can’t just hand over the keys, take the money and be on your way.

 

You need to meet the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) requirements. Here’s a quick rundown:

  • Make sure you’re clear of any outstanding finance. Contact your bank to inform the RTA about this. The RTA will send you a confirmation text message in a day or two.
  • Have an RTA test performed on your car. It costs 120 AED, and the certificate you get will be valid for thirty days.
  • Together with the buyer, go to any RTA Testing Centre (like Eppco-Tasjeel) and fill out a transfer form.
  • You need to have all your documents such as IDs, driving license and car test certificate in original plus copies. You get the new registration card and hand it over, together with the car and keys, for the agreed sum.
  • Present your insurance company with proof of the sale. You will then be able to get a refund for the remaining insurance or transfer it to the new owner.

Doing all this can potentially take weeks. Any error in the paperwork or unexpected setback can eat up even more of your time.

However, that’s not the only way to sell your car in Dubai.

How to Sell Us Your Car

We present a better alternative: Sell us your car. You don’t have to do any advertising, and the sale process is incredibly easy.

First, fill out a car valuation form and we will tell you how much the car is worth. It only takes a few minutes. There’s no need to visit a mechanic or haggle for a fair price. We offer it from the start.

Then, if you like the deal, book an appointment with us. Make sure you bring your documents, accessories and spare keys. That way, we can finish the transaction then and there.

Our experts will do another valuation for free. If everything checks out, all you have to do is sit back for about half an hour, enjoy a cup of coffee and we will do all the paperwork. That’s all. We give you the sum, and you’re all set.

Don’t waste precious time. Sell us your car in less than half an hour. Just fill the valuation form and schedule an appointment with us. It’s that simple.

Bently Bentayaga Dubai

The Bentley Bentayga – Dreams Become a Reality

Bentley and SUV weren’t previously two words you would normally see in the same sentence, but that is all about to change with the unveiling of the Bentley Bentayga at last year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, taking place this week.

Bentley have released the first official photographs of the vehicle, and they are certainly enough to have us licking our lips.

As you would expect from the iconic British car manufacturer, Bentley are not merely coming to occupy a quiet corner of the SUV market, they are aiming to redefine it. A bold statement of intent declares the Bentayga to be the “fastest, most powerful, most luxurious and most exclusive SUV in the world”, and it is hard to argue.

The raw power of the car will be derived from a twin turbo W12 engine. There are also hybrid and V8 models in the pipeline. The Bentayga will be British-made, with production taking place at the company’s Crewe factory in the UK.

In terms of the car’s design, the signature Bentley grille is in place, along with the two stylish creases along the side of the car. A panoramic sun roof and roof rails come as standard, while inside the car the interior is befitting of one of the world’s premier luxury car manufacturers. Leather and wood are used in abundance, and for those drivers who prioritise a comfortable ride even in the most inhospitable of conditions, the front seats are adjustable in 22 ways, no less.

So which new technology has Bentley treated us to in the Bentayga? Well, for a start the Park Assist is super intelligent, even able to help you identify suitable car parking spaces, while the Adaptive Cruise Control feature has been adapted to cater for off-road driving, offering up to eight different settings for easy motoring.

There is entertainment aplenty in the form of the touch screen infotainment system, complete with 60GB hard drive for your media files. The Naim audio speaker system offers 18 speakers around the vehicle for your listening pleasure.

And despite its considerable size, the Bentayga is certainly no slouch. It goes from 0-62mpg in 4.1 seconds by generating 600bhp from its 6.0 litre W12 engine. The Bentayga will be priced at around the £140,000 (750,000AED) mark. For a top of the range model, expect to pay in the region of £200,000 (1 million AED).

With this ambitious move from Bentley we have entered a new era – that of the ultra-luxury SUV.

Achieving the Perfect Hand Wash When Cleaning Your Car

Washing Your Car or Any Car is always easy when you know the right steps.

Washing Your Car or Any Car is always simple when you know the right steps.

With our hectic work and social lives, it’s little surprise that many car owners opt to take their vehicles to the nearest automated car wash, in preference to cleaning them themselves using traditional elbow grease to achieve a beautiful finish. While a car wash may be quicker and involve expending as much energy as is required to sit in comfort in the driver’s seat, surprisingly, a hand wash can achieve far more satisfactory results.

If you’re going to utilise a little of your spare time to give your car a thorough once over, it’s well worth investing in the correct tools and detergents designed for the purpose, in order to give you the best chance of achieving a perfect finish. You should also aim to use the correct techniques to give your car a most thorough clean, so the following tips will put you on the right road to having a sparkling vehicle:

1-Position your car in the shade

It may sound daft, but washing your car is more effective if carried out in the shade. This is because the surface, if heated by the sun, will cause the soap suds to dry quickly, leaving an unsightly stain behind that is hard to clean off when rinsing. Ideally you should aim to rinse the vehicle soon after applying soap, in order to remove any residue that will spoil the quality of the finish.

2-Use a professional detergent

It may be tempting, when you can’t find an alternative, to pour a capful of washing up liquid into a bucket, but you can actually cause significant damage to the paintwork of your car by doing so. Washing up detergents contain additional chemicals and degreasers that are essential for squeaky clean dishes but can remove the finish on your car’s paintwork, causing unsightly damage as well as invalidating any outstanding paint warranties. Instead, purchase a professional car detergent formulated for the purpose from your nearest auto parts store.

3-Wash the car in sections

Instead of diving in with your sponge and soapy water, it’s most effective to work around the car in sections, starting with the roof and working downwards. This is because washing the lower half of the vehicle first means dirty streaks will run over the clean section as you move upwards and you’ll have to repeat the wash again.

Work in one direction around the car, moving to the next section only when the previous one has been thoroughly washed. It’s better to replace the water when necessary instead of pressing on with semi-dirty water, as you’ll simply transfer the dirt around the car. Remember that the nearside of the car – the side closest to the kerb – is likely to be dirtiest and in need of the most intense clean.

4-Rinse thoroughly and repeatedly

Rinsing the car is the perfect opportunity to remove lingering soap suds and stubborn dirt and, if carried out properly, can make the difference between an eye-catching finish and a reasonable one. Rinse thoroughly using a hosepipe or jet wash if possible, remembering to angle the water stream to reach all the hidden parts where soap suds may remain. Rinsing several times will ensure the car is absolutely clean; by running your hand over the surface of the body you will be able to tell if there is any residual dirt as the paintwork won’t feel absolutely smooth.

Next, rub over the surface of the car with a chamois leather as soon as you have rinsed it.

5-Use wax to protect the surface

Finally, a layer of car wax, applied in two, will thoroughly protect the paintwork and help to maintain a shiny finish of which you can be proud.

Remember that if you took care of your car now, it will thank you later.

How to Spot a Trader When Buying a Car in Dubai

Buying a secondhand car in Dubai can prove to be a major mistake, but then again it can also prove to be the best investment you ever make during your time here – you simply need to research the car buying market in Dubai, know what to look out for in a secondhand car, and of course insist on test driving it before you commit to buy.

Home-based car traders are a problem for car buyers in Dubai, and every effort must be made to avoid these unlicensed car dealers. Why, you may ask? The answer to that is simple – you stand to lose a significant amount of money by purchasing a used car from an unlicensed car dealer. Here are three reasons why.

1. These car dealers operate without insurance
2. The cars they offer are often without warranties
3. They often work hard to hide major problems

That is not to say every vehicle these unlicensed dealers have to offer is a dud, but if you are going to pay thousands of dollars for a car, wouldn’t you feel much more comfortable purchasing one from a reputable source that you could chase up should something go wrong?

You can sell any car in Dubai easily, in fact, you can sell your car in 25 minutes with SimplyBuyAnyCar.com, and you can also get a great deal on a used car when you limit your car buying attentions to reputable sources. And there are many.

But can you spot a home-based car trader when shopping around for a used car in Dubai? Sometimes doing so is very easy, though other times it can prove much more difficult – these car traders excel at what they do because they have perfected the art of duping unsuspecting car buyers. Here are a few ways to spot a home-based car trader.

1. They can show you the car at any time of the day (because they don’t have a job besides selling secondhand cars)
2. The car they are offering to sell you is not in their name but rather someone else’s, like a brother or sister (who will naturally be uncontactable)
3. They will not allow you to get the car inspected at a garage of your choosing, but will instead insist on taking you to their choice of garage
As our resident experts have advised, car buyers must be careful when buying a used car in Dubai, and they also recommend that, “first-time car buyers take a mechanic with them to check the car to make sure the seller isn’t hiding any problems.” That’s great advice and definitely something for you to bear in mind!

And of-course, finally, if selling your car is proving to be more of an issue than buying a new one, here at SimplyCarBuyers.com we guarantee to buy any car, regardless of condition, within 25 minutes!

Why Avoid Buying a Car from a Trader in Dubai

With the month of Ramadan now underway, and very nearly finished, now is definitely the right time to buy a car in Dubai.

This is because the ‘season of giving’ has the effect of encouraging car dealers to offer lower prices, as well as a treasure trove of other incentives to buy a new or secondhand vehicle, including cash prizes and other daily draws, free car insurance and car servicing, among many others.

However, despite the great deals on offer through a number of reputable car dealerships and online car sales service providers, many car buyers are still focusing their car buying attentions on vehicles bought and sold by traders, unregistered car sellers who make good money duping unsuspecting buyers. Managing director of Carmudi Middle East, Mohamed Noweir, advises “You must be careful in order to avoid being tricked. We recommend you use a trusted car classifieds website and never buy a vehicle before you test drive it.”

This is excellent advice for any car buyer to heed, and although you can easily sell your car in 25 minutes with SimplyBuyAnyCar.com, you should take much longer to source a suitable car from a reputable buyer – it’s better to take your time than rush into things and find yourself out of pocket.

So why avoid buying a car from a home-based trader?

vintage-cars-336674_1280

With so many home-based car traders operating in Dubai, there is a good chance that you will come into contact with one when sourcing a new secondhand set of wheels, unless you buy from a used car dealer or use a reputable website like SimplyBuyAnyCar.com where you can sell any car in Dubai in a matter of minutes.

Here are a few reasons why you should avoid home-based car traders when looking for a suitable secondhand car in the United Arab Emirates.

  • Home-based traders operate without insurance, which means you could purchase a used car with major mechanical problems that would prove impossible to return with the aim of getting your money back
  • The cars these traders have to sell are often not covered by warranties, they generally have not been inspected by a professional mechanic prior to being offered for sale, and they may not prove to be roadworthy at all
  • Cars are often played with in order to make them appear to be better than they actually are, for instance, fiddling with the tachometer to reduce the number of miles on the clock, and painting over rusted areas

As you can easily get a great deal from a reputable source there is absolutely no reason why you need to purchase a secondhand vehicle from a home-based trader and put yourself at risk. Additionally, along with avoiding home-based traders, it is also essential to understand the car buying process and know what to look for in a secondhand car.

Things to Consider When Buying an Imported American or Japanese Car

As you will almost immediately realise when perusing the search results for ‘imported American and/or Japanese cars in Dubai’, purchasing an imported secondhand car from the US or Japan can be a very risky affair.

There are a number of reasons why this is the case, so if you have your heart set on an American or Japanese import, or even a European car imported from either of these two countries, please exercise caution – many car buyers in Dubai have lost a significant amount of money, and some have been injured as a result of driving an imported car that should never have been allowed in the country in the first place.

The vehicle has been salvaged…

A common problem around the world with imported secondhand cars, many car buyers here in Dubai have been duped into buying a vehicle that has been salvaged. This could entail a vehicle that was flooded, one that was written off in an accident, or one that should have been recalled but wasn’t, and was subsequently resold.

This is reportedly a more significant problem among secondhand vehicles imported from the United States, though there have been many cases of car buyers here in Dubai purchasing salvaged Japanese cars also.

Therefore, if you have your heart set on an imported car, as many car buyers do, don’t skimp on a VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) check before committing to purchase the vehicle. This may not always be possible, but please be aware that if you don’t have a VIN check conducted, you are putting yourself at risk and will have no one to blame but yourself should major problems arise with the imported car you purchased.

It can’t handle the weather conditions

This is a major problem for car buyers in Dubai because of the extreme heat and the dust that has the potential to cause serious engine problems. This is why GCC specs exist, and generally entail, among other differences, a significantly larger radiator that helps to keep the engine from overheating in the excessive desert heat.

Another important difference between GCC and US specs is that of rustproofing, which is essential due to the sand and dust that act as corrosives and have the effect of destroying a vehicle’s paintwork, while another notable difference is the much more powerful air conditioning systems that cars manufactured to GCC specs offer.

It is also important to understand that car manufacturers design and manufacture their vehicles to suit different climates, and that this trend actually affects many cars manufactured in the US, with cars manufactured in the southern states featuring larger radiators, and cars manufactured in the north instead featuring engine block warmers.

As we can help you to sell any car in Dubai, if your car imported from the US was manufactured in the south, don’t forget to point this out as it can help to make your car more appealing to local car buyers – you really can sell your car in 25 minutes with SimplyCarBuyers.com
