Being a car owner means a lot of things to a lot of different people. From maintenance servicing to rentals, the variety of services and options for car users in the UAE can be a chore to go through, but fear not – because we are bringing you our personal curated list of 10 innovative services that you should try out for the best car experiences you can get! List is in no particular order.
Fuel. It is a fairly boring topic to most people, and even the most hardened petrolhead is not going to spend that long on the subject. No-one really enjoys going to a petrol station to top up – so why not have the petrol station come to you? Both CAFU and ENOC Link offer curb side refueling, at costs competitive to petrol stations.
Sometimes, it is less economical to own your own car, while occasionally needing to use one. While the world of traditional rentals have taken a hit during the pandemic yet have remained mostly intact, EKAR offers something slightly different by running an app-based per-minute rental scheme for up to five hours, with cars available for pickup across the UAE. We have seen other companies introduce similar services such as UDrive from RTA; more options are always good.
8: KENO Car Wash
Washing your car is a pain. So if you have the option, why not have someone come to your house and do it for you? Keno offers a full range of cleaning through their app, and with a payment you can have everything from waxing to washing done at home. Maybe a slightly more expensive option than we are used to with our resident car-wash help but the extra services are worth it.
Selling your car online is a hassle at the best of times, so why not make it easier by using SellAnyCar.com? They offer instant valuations on your car for free, a further free inspection if you choose to sell, and can have your car sold within 30 minutes! Feel free to negotiate with them as well.
If you’re part of the UAEs ever growing car culture, sometimes you want your car to feel a bit special. 67 Customs offers a wide range of services, from tuning to Aesthetics, to help you stand out from the crowd.
Breakdowns happen, and they’re never fun. Even less fun is fitting the repair and servicing around your schedule. MySyara makes it easy by trying to do as much as possible at the roadside with their revolutionary “Mobile garages.”
Have you ever seen a car on the road and thought “I’d really like one of those.” Well, with Seez, what you see can be what you get. Using your smartphone, if you snap a picture of the car that has caught your eye, its image recognition technology will find similar cars available to buy! This is a great example of adapting technology and making it more accessible and applicable to our lives.
At some point in your life, you may want to invest in something a little more…luxurious. At the top of the market, The Elite Cars is the biggest and best supplier of luxury cars in the UAE, supplying everything from tuned Minis to McLaren sports cars. Even if you do not intend on purchasing a car, we recommend you go for the experience. It is literally a modern car museum!
Making the used car market easier Is Automall’s aim, with a vast online market of used and new cars to fit any budget. You’re guaranteed to be able to find the car you’re looking for with this much choice available. There are other options as well in this category including Dubicars.com but what we like the most is the fact that cars on accessible to see at their lot in in Dubai Festival City and the trust and services you receive. Of course, you also have access to Al Awir automarket as well.
Another service providing breakdown assistance and servicing, ServiceMyCar.ae provides a comprehensive level of service to fit car maintenance around you, valeting your car to and from garages to ensure you have it when you need it. The professionalism and growing reputation of this brand add a level of comfort that is difficult to achieve in this competitive market. We definitely recommend it as an option.
