As any expatriate in the UAE will know, selling your car – particularly in a rush – can be a nightmarish experience.

Obviously, you want a fair price for your vehicle, but you also want it sold quickly, without having to spend time haggling with complete strangers. Fortunately, a convenient solution has emerged that combines the traditional automotive trade with the power of the internet. has launched as the Middle East’s first car-buying service, which guarantees that it will purchase any car within 30 minutes, following a free online valuation and free car inspection. Founder and CEO, Saygin Yalcin, says that you’re guaranteed to sell your car and get paid for it, even during your lunch break.

“Selling a car tends to be a lengthy and risky process. Consumers are not sure about their car’s real value and have to arrange face-to-face appointments with potential buyers, resulting in wasted time,” says Yalcin, who adds that the company was created in response to the high turnover of automobiles in the country and a very active secondary market, where consumers upgrade vehicles and experiment with various makes and brands.

“On one hand, we want to help consumers sell their cars quickly, without hassle and in a fair manner. On the other hand, we also want to help businesses that want to purchase pre-inspected vehicles in large quantities,” adds Yalcin.

According to Yalcin, there are no cars that the company would be unwilling to buy – regardless of the make, model or condition. The process is facilitated by online data collection. Sellers enter their car’s details for a free upfront approximate valuation. Once that is done, they can drive in to any locations across the UAE for a quick manual inspection.

If the customer is happy with the offer, the money is transferred to the seller’s bank account via online transfer within a matter of minutes.

Yalcin is also the founder of e-commerce giant, partner at Jabbar Internet Group and partner at
