    Have you ever seen an old movie where a customer pulls into a gas station and twelve service station employees run out to service the car? Unfortunately, those days are gone you need to do those basic maintenance tasks yourself to keep your car in top condition.

    The following is a quick guide you can use to remember Routine Maintenance Checks for your vehicle. Doing these Routine checks may seem like a hassle, but they could save you time and money in the long run. Try to get yourself into some good habits while driving and maintaining your vehicle.

    1. ROUTINE MAINTENANCE CHECKS EACH TIME YOU USE YOUR CAR

    1. Check the tires for low pressure. If you do see a low tire, look for nails, screws, or other foreign objects that could cause a puncture.
    2. Check the outside for new damage.
    3. This is especially important if you are parked in a public parking area. If someone has damaged your vehicle, take pictures for your insurance company.
    4. Look for leaks. After leaving a parking spot, glance back and check for signs of a fresh puddle. When you walk away from your parked car, look for dripping liquid.

    2. ROUTINE MAINTENANCE CHECKS EACH TIME YOU GET FUEL

    1. Check your fluids. Check the level and condition of your engine oil every time you fill up. The other fluids that have a see-through reservoir like coolant and brake fluid only require a quick glance to see their levels are correct.
    2. Inspect belts and hoses. Take a look at your belts and hoses to look for abnormal wear. Use caution when touching a hot engine a visual inspection is sufficient. Also, look for leaks around the engine compartment and under the car.
    3. Check tire pressure. This is a good time to check your tires for proper inflation. Frequent checking is the best way to maximize the life of your tires.
    4. Clean your windows and wiper blades. If a squeegee and towels are available, take advantage of them. Keeping your wipers and windshield clean will extend the life of your wipers.

    3. ROUTINE MAINTENANCE CHECKS EACH OIL CHANGE

    Whether you change your own oil or have it done by someone else, you should perform the fill-up inspections as well as the following:

    1. Inspect your tires for abnormal wear and damage.
    2. Check your fluids. In addition to checking the levels, look at the fluids while the engine is cold, and check their condition.
    3. Inspect and lubricate the chassis. Check for underside problems and issues with the suspension when lubricating the chassis.
    4. Inspect the belts and hoses. With the engine cold, do a thorough inspection of the belts and hoses. Look for signs of leaking around the engine.
    5. Check the air filter.
    6. Check the external lights. Turn on your lights and make sure all your lights are working, including your turn signal and brake lights. Also, check the small bulb over your license plate.
    7. Inspect your battery. Inspect and clean the battery contacts if needed. Look for damage to the cables.

    4. ROUTINE MAINTENANCE CHECKS EVERY OTHER OIL CHANGE

    In addition to the previously described checks, add the following to your list:

    1. Rotate the tires.
    2. Check automatic transmission fluid and power steering fluid. These are both usually checked while the engine is running.
    3. Check the fuel cap. Look for cracking and debris around the seal area.
    4. Check the seat belts. Check the belts for fraying and damage, and check the retractors to make sure they are working properly.
    5. Check weather stripping and seals. Check the door seals and weatherstripping for tears, breaks, or damage.
    6. Check computer codes. The computer should illuminate a dashboard icon if there s a problem, but it doesn t hurt to check for codes periodically.

    If you own a car and are planning to sell it, then you would obviously want to sell it at the best rate possible. But, while all of us wish to sell our cars at higher prices, only a few of us are able to achieve that target. Why? Well, that s because many of us fail to maintain our vehicles in proper shape and condition, which eventually forces us to sell our cars at low prices.

    It is important to understand that a well-maintained car will fetch us an attractive price whereas if we neglect the vehicle and do not maintain it on a regular basis, it will result in massive wear and tears, causing the resale price to drop further. Here, find some relevant and important car maintenance tips that will help you to sell your car in Dubai quickly and comfortably.CarWise

    VEHICLE WELL-COVERED

    Keep the Vehicle Well-covered

    One of the first and basic car maintenance tips is to ensure that your car is fully covered, especially when you are planning to park it outside the garage and in an open area. Remember, the sun s light and heat can damage the vehicle s painted exterior. Ideally, you should park your car in the garage or a parking area with an ample amount of shade. Given that this may not be possible on some occasions, you can choose to invest in a high-quality car cover and use the same to protect your vehicles from the harsh sunlight, bird droppings, and even the plant saps.

    Keep the Servicing Details Intact

    Another nice and easy way to ensure that your car is well-maintained is to stick to your vehicle s maintenance schedule on a regular basis. Also, keep a record of the service history intact in one file and produce the same before your buyers to impress them. The servicing records will help you to establish the fact that your car has been maintained in accordance with the maintenance schedule and hence is in good condition. This would also help you to justify the price that you are demanding for your car and close the deal conveniently.

    Professional car Cleaning

    Professional Cleaning

    No matter what you do, make sure that you opt for professional cleaners when it comes to cleaning your car. In fact, this is one of the most commonly offered car maintenance tips that every car owner should follow, particularly if they are looking to sell their vehicle quickly in Dubai. Remember, how your car looks on the outside will go a long way in convincing the buyer whether he/she should be paying a high price for purchasing it or not. Since the exterior of the car is regularly exposed to certain elements like dust, dirt, and sunlight, hence it is important that you get the vehicle washed and waxed frequently. Hand over your car to professional cleaners once every month and get it thoroughly washed/cleaned to ensure that it remains in good shape.

    PROFESSIONAL CLEANING

    Interiors Are Important Too

    When it comes to following car maintenance tips, many car owners tend to forget about their vehicle s interiors. Remember, no buyer will invest in your car, if he/she finds that your car s interior is not in good condition. This is exactly why car owners must also emphasize on cleaning the inside areas of their cars. To keep your car s interior well maintained, vacuum all the mats properly and also keep the seats clean. When your car s interior is neat and fresh, it becomes easier to convince the buyer and secure a higher price after selling it. Apart from this, you must also keep the upholstery in appropriate condition. This can be achieved by washing and getting rid of the stains on the covers of the seat.

    CAR POLISHED AND WAXED

    Keep Your Car Polished and Waxed

    One of the best car maintenance tips that you must implement to maintain a squeaky clean car is to get your vehicle polished and waxed regularly. Cars tend to shed their shine and luster over time, which is precisely why it is important to keep it well polished and waxed on a regular basis. It is equally important that you eliminate the grime, dirt, and dust that are found on the tires, rims, exterior mirrors, head, brake lights and windows of your car. In order to keep each of these parts clean, you must choose premium quality car cleaning products that do not damage its look and shine.

    Wash Vehicle Windows

    Wash Your Vehicle s Windows

    As already stated above, car owners must keep the windows of their car clean in order to sell their vehicle quickly and comfortably. When you wash the windows of your car regularly, it continues to retain its luster and look and remains in good condition. Car owners must also refrain from using ammonia based car cleaning products that tend to damage the tint on the vehicle s windows. If you plan to sell your car in Dubai, then it is recommended that you use the right car cleaning product and wipe the window appropriately to get rid of dust and dirt.

    Cleaning Car's Light

    Don t Forget the Lights

    One of the most widely recommended car maintenance tips is to keep the lights of your car clean, especially if you are looking to dispose of your vehicle in UAE. In order to do this, you must brush the lights and use a generous amount of toothpaste as well as elbow grease to keep them neat and shiny. This trick will help you to keep the lights both clear as well as less dim.

    car air vents

    Get Rid of Dirt and Dust from the Air Vents

    If you intend to sell your car for an attractive price then make sure that you get rid of all the dirt and dust from your vehicle s air vents. When you remove the dust from the air vents, your car s AC emits clean air which eventually benefits your health. This is particularly important for those who have a conventional AC fitted within their cars.

    cleaning car engine

    Maintain the Engine too

    Car owners who wish to sell their car in Dubai must also make an effort to keep their vehicle s engine shiny and clean. Use pressure wash to clean your car s engine when you find dust particles and grease on it. However, before using the pressure washing technique disconnect all the electrical wires, battery as well as the distributor and reconnect each part only after the engine has been appropriately cleaned and is dry.

    washing car wheels

    Wash Your Car s Wheel and Keep them Inflated

    You must never present a dirty car before the buyer. This is why it is crucial that you wash your car s wheels and also keep them inflated to maximize its performance. Many car maintenance experts suggest that car owners must use good quality aluminum based wheel cleaners that do not contain any acid to keep the wheels clean and glowing.

    CAR S CARGO

    Keep Your Car s Cargo Area Clean too

    Your car s cargo area/section should be clean and well-maintained if you want to sell your car quickly in Dubai. Irrespective of whether your car has a small or large cargo area, you must clean and tidy it to leave a lasting impression on the buyers. Remember, no buyer will ignore a car that looks good both on the outside as well as inside. Hence, remover all the dust, waste items and dirt from the cargo section and keep the interiors spot clean to convince buyers to pay a good price for your car.

    Other Quick Tips

    In addition to following the above-mentioned car maintenance tips, you must also use some of the below mentioned quick tips to keep your car tidy and in good condition:

    • Keep your vehicle mechanically fit and repair any dents, scrapes or dings if you want to sell your car quickly.

    How can I sell my car

    Maybe you are sitting asking yourself "should I sell my car and get a new one?" but you do not know how to start the action of selling, and how to promote your car so it grabs buyers attention.

    Selling the car can never be easier, and you might come across various platforms that provide different ways of doing so. Besides, some of these ways are legal and some are not, that is why you have to strict in the laws of selling and be familiar with them, especially, in the UAE.

    Moreover, you have to be careful when choosing the buyer because UAE police have registered many car selling fraud cases that made the seller suffer from losing the vehicle and the money.

    The most common ways of selling a car are even by selling it to a private car dealer, through a classified website, or by selling it to CARWISE

    The first option that might come across many sellers' mind is to sell the car privately. It is offering your car to the individuals and the person who is interested, will contact you back.

    The most common option is that the private buyers will net you a very high price for your car because you are selling it directly without using an intermediary. However, because dealing with strangers is sometimes unsafe, you should always be careful and prepared just in case something unexpected happened.

    2b9cfe3df4142522.jpg

    That is why it is important to ask about any private car dealer's trade license when you try to sell your car for cash because non-registered car dealer will avoid you when you ask for it. On the other hand, as everyone knows, the car market in the UAE is expanding and so does the car dealers.

    The private car dealers always try doing their best to find the best way to sell the used vehicle and make sure to provide a comfortable environment for the buyer. Therefore, you as a dealer, you should do your best by giving a full description of your vehicle and take a good picture of it. In this way, the buyer will be able to have a general idea about your vehicle.

    The second option that is common to sell vehicles is by using the classified websites. This way is fast and easy for selling your car. Using these websites will help you save your time. Take some quality pictures of your vehicle, write some correct information about it, and post it on one of the websites that you trust.

    Classified websites are easy to use, but they are not registered with the authorities and do not follow any legal process of car buying and selling. Many fraud cases the police reported in the UAE where the buyers through classified website approach the sellers. Classified websites cannot be recharged with providing security assurance because they are an online platform for car selling.

    That is why you have to be aware and careful of using the classified websites. Consulting someone who has experienced selling his vehicle through classified websites is better for you to avoid fraud. Moreover, it is very important to accompany someone with you while the buyer is doing the physical inspection of your vehicle and immediately inform the police if the buyer runs away with your car. Always make sure to get your money in cash not by cheque because the possibility of paying a fake cheque is very high in these cases.

    The third option that is common to sell the car is by using the website CARWISE. As a seller, you can sell your car without being worried about being in a fraud case or any fake deal. You can do the action of selling the vehicle while you are sitting in your house.

    That is why using CARWISE is so easy for every seller. So many different online websites are available in the UAE where the companies are helping the sellers to sell their vehicle safely.

You only need to follow them while you are filling the online car valuation form, which requires mentioning the model, year of the vehicle, and the make with some personal information and do not worry because the company does not reveal any of your personal information.

    After filling the form, you will get the estimated price of your used vehicle and if you liked the price, you can book an appointment for the physical inspection of your vehicle. Keep in mind that you can accept or reject the offered price and once you accept it, the selling action starts immediately.
