    Default Shifting to Karachi from Rawalpindi

    Dear All,

    As stated in the title, due to company requirments i am shifting to Karachi from Rawalpindi. I'll be shifting with my family. Now the problem is that i have a car civic vti 1997 Islamabad Registered and i am sure that i can sell that for atleast 7 lac here. I am confused that should i take that car along or sell that here and get an other one from karachi. the car condition is good and is in stock condition with minor touchups, not giving me much problem mechanically as well (that is the reason i want take that along...) but i know that the market price in karachi is less then here.

    Kindly Rawalpindians/Karahiiets give me some good advice on my next step. i'll be shifting to karachi be the end of June.

    Regards
    Farooq

    Being an 16 years old car from which you are satisfied is a blessing,your car won't sell at this price in Karachi,if you sell it there and buy a same aged car from Karachi for sure it won't be up to that mark what you are expecting in comparision with you present car.buying an old car and spending money on it will not only money,it will be a lot of hassles and time consumption.So either enhace your budget or stick with what you have,as I see it is not a car,its a PEACE OF MIND.

    there are ample amount of ISB registered cars here in Karachi so i don't see a problem in bringing it here. Where is your company giving you accommodation?

    Sell it in Izloo and get another one here. For 1997 7lacs a good offer as compared to Karachi.

    Sell it cause God forbids if you got some mechanical work in car here than you will have to run at both places, car and work + new city.

    From phase 6-7 to 8 a 10mins drive.

    Then better sell your car there in Islamabad,around 900k you can easily get an 04~05 model EXi and by adding of 200k an upgrade of 08 years in your present car model is fair enough.

    your best bet would be Creek Vista apartments, they are like 5 minutes away from Emaar's office, also you would be right near to Karachi's underground track where on saturday night all the races happen (if you are into spectating that). There are closeby popular restaurants as well. Welcome to Karachi in advance.

    Creek Vista are one of the prime in Khi, and a rent will be an eye-opener too.
