Abu Dhabi authorities told all used car dealers to meet a deadline at the end of April and shift their showrooms to a new location in Shamkha nearly 40 km away from the city, a newspaper reported on Tuesday. Car shop owners had originally been given until the end of June 2011 to leave but the deadline was extended at their request so they can dismantle their business, which is concentrated on Airport Road in the capital.
The semi official daily Alittihad said nearly 70 showrooms are expected to complete their move by the end of April while those who fail to shift would not be able to have their business licence renewed.
The paper said Motor World, not far from Abu Dhabi airport, also includes many other services like car wash, maintenance, and registration and car park spaces. DED has given no reason for the move but Abu Dhabi, the main oil producing emirate in the UAE, has been locked in a massive development and reorganization plan within its long-term strategy dubbed Vision 2030.
The plan involves infrastructure expansions, relocation of car repair garages, moving construction workers out of the city and other projects. The dog, named Tennyson, at first climbed a few stairs on his own, with the fluffy feline, known as Moo, following him. An attempted arson attack backfired when a man set himself on fire while trying to light up a building in the US. Used-car dealerships say they face a 50 per cent fall in profit this year as they are forced off Abu Dhabi island and made to set up shop at the nascent Motor World complex. The dealers, who have a deadline of today to close their showrooms on the island and clear their stock from the capital's streets, say the level of rents at Motor World will make their business much less profitable this year. Ahmed Ali Medrar, the manager of a used-car dealership on Airport Road, said he would try to sell the remaining 15 cars he owned and then start afresh in a new industry. Mr Medrar said he made a Dh10,000 profit (US$2,722) each month and was paying Dh25,000 per year to lease a showroom on Airport Road but had been quoted Dh170,000 to Dh380,000 for a space at Motor World.
Used-car dealers must leave Abu Dhabi island and sell their vehicles elsewhere to free up hundreds of parking spaces for residents.
Motor World, which is in Shamkah near the airport, was launched by the developer Aldar in April 2008, but was then put on hold while the company revised its plans after the property slowdown. Dealers say Motor World needs better publicity and improved directional signs to the site from Abu Dhabi island. An Aldar official said comparing space on Abu Dhabi island and Motor World was not a "like-for-like comparison". Dealers who had agreed to set up shop in Motor World expected profits to fall by more than half this year because few people knew about the complex and the overall market for used cars had weakened since a strong performance last year.
Motor World aims to be a one-stop shop for all a customer's needs, including car dealerships, workshops, cafes, residences and insurance, registration and banking services.
But the project has is advancing at a slow pace and no new-car dealerships have started to set up shop at the complex.


Government officials visited Motor World last week, endorsing the project and its progress. Mohammed Moneef Al Mansouri, the acting executive director of the Department of Economic Development's commercial affairs division, said the car showrooms on Abu Dhabi island must take necessary measures to move to the Motor World city and that it was now the "new headquarters" for dealers.
He added that at the end of last year there were 537 car dealers in Abu Dhabi emirate, with 367 in the capital.
A number of major dealers selling new cars have opened showrooms on or close to Abu Dhabi island in the past year. In February, Abu Dhabi Motors opened the world's largest BMW showroom in Umm Al Nar, just off Abu Dhabi island.

But many dealers have complained about the exorbitant rents, which they say would make their business unfeasible. It also comprises a three-star hotel, auto spare parts and accessories shops, restaurants, parks and other facilities. Most of Abu Dhabi’s used car shops are located on the Airport Road, where more than 100 such shops dot both sides of the road.
Many of the dealers use parking spaces to display and store their inventory of vehicles, so government authorities have directed them to leave the island by today to make space. Otherwise, potential buyers will not hear about the complex or be able to find it, the dealers say.
He added that 501 would have to increase its prices and cut its margins to sell at Motor World. In September, Omeir Bin Youssef & Sons, which distributes Peugeot vehicles, opened a flagship showroom near the Corniche. Dozens of companies had to swap their spots on Airport Road in the midtown Al Ittihad district for the purpose-built Motor World near the airport last summer. Scores of new car showrooms are also scattered through the city of nearly 1.5 million people.
But signs of new life are appearing, with businesses opening or preparing to trade dotted among the vacant premises.
Every day they come in and ask, 'when will it open?' They are very happy." Tony Saad, a Lebanese IT manager, is one of many residents pleased to see the back of the cars.
There's a new restaurant opening and I'm really interested and excited about it." "There's another Chinese restaurant going to open. Life is coming back to the region." Mr Saad, 32, lives in an apartment with his wife Andy, 34, and their 11-month-old twins. Mrs Saad said the area was better for children without all the cars, and she would now be willing to let the twins play outside when they were older. They would not have done that before." Nadia Umwar, a Pakistani mother of four, has lived in the area for 12 years and is pleased with the transformation.
These shops are more useful." Karen Walsh, 23, from Ireland, said the road had "definitely improved". The teacher said the area was "really quiet" for a while after the car dealers left but was now changing.
