Write a Review
Scout My Car, a Dubai-based startup that performs pre-purchase car inspections for used cars, has expanded their service to Abu Dhabi and Sharjah.
Founded in September 2016, and backed by Rocket Internet, Scout My Car will now be offering inspections for regular, premium, and classic cars in the three largest Emirates. So far, the company has carried out over 500 inspections in Dubai alone, requested by used car buyers, who are looking to protect themselves from faulty cars, high prices, or fraud.
Speaking about their offering, Alexander M. Kappes, founder of Scout My Car, said: “While the share of used car purchases has increased over the last few years, there hasn’t been a reliable service to help buyers avoid the potential pitfalls of buying a used car. Scout My Car can help users detect mechanical problems, reveal previous accidents, and negotiate a better price.”
On ScoutMyCar.com, customers can select from the regular car package for AED 399, and the premium or classic cars package for AED 749. All they need to do is provide the details of the seller or the Dubizzle link, and Scout My Car’s team takes it from there. Every car is picked up from the current owner, inspected thoroughly in the garage, and taken for a test drive. When the inspection is complete, the car is returned, and the inspection report is created. Every report includes the inspection results, the car’s service history, service requirements and a price recommendation, which is sent back to the customer on the same day.
"The feedback from our customers has been fantastic!” says Kappes, boasting a 5.0 of 5 stars rating on Facebook. “We have saved our customers thousands of dirhams in repair costs, and are helping them avoid dishonest sellers.”
With Scout My Car available to reduce the risk of buying a used car, car buyers will now be able to buy their used dream car with peace of mind.
