- ABOUT US
Cars24.me is a site operated by SellAnyCar.com FZE, registered in Sharjah Airport International Free Zone under license number 16172. The registered address is PO Box 122443 in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates.
The actual car valuation, car inspection and trading services can be carried out by third-party entities. Hence, following references to “Cars24”, “us”, “our” or “we” shall be read in accordance.
- ONLINE VALUATION
– The price valuations given through our website Cars24.me are valuations based upon the information on the car you give us. It is not a price offer from us to buy your car.
– Before we offer to buy any car we always conduct an on-site inspection of the car at one of our branches. You can make an appointment for an inspection after you have received a price estimate (valuation).
– The value of a car is determined by its history and respective condition. This includes unusual features as well as customization, which may not have been apparent to us when we estimated the value online. Thus, the online valuation will differ from the price that we will offer following an on-site inspection.
- SALES CONTRACT
– We will offer to buy the car for a price after we carried out an on-site inspection at one of our branches.
– Any offer to purchase the vehicle, and thus the contract, is only effective between you and us and only if and when you sign our standard written purchase contract after the inspection. The contract will be subject to these terms and conditions. It will not contain any other standard terms or conditions.
– Once you made a contract with us, we will expect you to hand us the keys, the registration documents, any service history, any user manuals, and any accessories there may be e.g. locking wheel nut or remote controls. We also expect you to remove your personal possessions from the car.
– We will then continue with the deregistration process of the vehicle, where we will need your cooperation as agreed in the purchase agreement.
– Cars24 also offers selected car dealers the opportunity to sell cars to Cars24, which have been offered and sold by third parties to those dealers.
The dealer hereby has to conduct a visual and technical car inspection and generate an inspection report along the inspection guidelines given by Cars24. This inspection report then has to be uploaded into the system of Cars24. The dealer will receive login credentials accordingly.
Based on this uploaded inspection report, the dealer will receive a purchase offer, subject to Cars24’s physical verification of the accuracy of the inspection report.
After Cars24’s quality check of the inspection report, Cars24 notifies the dealer digitally or in writing, if the inspection report has been verified for accuracy and hence the purchase agreement been approved. If the inspection report fails the quality check, the purchase agreement does not become valid.
For the execution of the purchase agreement between the dealer and Cars24 the provisions of these terms and conditions apply accordingly.
A disclosure of system access or login credentials to third parties is not permitted.
- PROCESS OF PAYMENT
– When you have handed over the car correspondent to Article 3, we will pay you the price for the car by electronic bank transfer to your account after title transfer has happened.
– Our standard means of payment is by bank transfer, which usually takes 1-2 working days for domestic transfers. Mostly, the transfer is already done on the day of title transfer.
– Events beyond our control may delay payment. If that happens we will not have any liability to you for the delay.

- FINANCE AGAINST CARS
– Even though a car has finance against it from an agreement of you and a third party, we may agree to purchase it. That is only, if we receive a written statement from the third party of the amount required to settle the finance agreement in full.
– We will only pay the very sum to a third party to which we agreed with you in written contract. We will make such payment as soon as it is reasonably practicable after we enter into the contract and following receipt of any sum due from you under the conditions below.
If the price is:
