public auto sales service

Our advertising methods and no-pressure approach displaying private party cars gets the job done fast and easy at fair market values. Most vehicle websites tend to bury your vehicle's ad in a vast and overpopulated list of dealer ads. Our ad networking methods have proven to be effective and produce fast results . . never allowing an ad to stagnate. Our 34 years of experience assisting sellers with pricing will often shock those who generally use on-line evaluation sites which lack the personal involvement and local market knowledge required to accurately determine the real value of a car. Check our sold list and see for yourself how cars for sale displayed at Buggy Bank tend to sell at or above the fair market value. Its a jungle out there when you try to sell or buy on your own. You know you can lose a thousand or two in commissions at dealers, but may not suspect you can meet an opportunistic craigslist auto trader wanting to re-sell your car for their profit. Customers have told us they have wasted months and lost thousands chasing their tails in this jungle. Long time customers will only shop and sell at Buggy Bank for that reason alone.

Buggy Bank brings buyers and sellers together. Private party cars sell faster here because there are no sales people, no commissions and override costs to get in the way of your deal. That's just one reason that both buyers and sellers get the best deals on wheels at Buggy Bank. We have been serving the Bay Area community and beyond since 1976. Our hours are 9:00 am to 6:00 pm daily except Tuesdays (NOTE: No test drives after 5:00 pm or key checkouts after 5:30 pm.) . We are not a dealership or auto consignment lot, but a place where individuals display for sale by owner cars in a safe professional environment for a nominal flat fee. Our reputation has built us a vast audience in the Bay Area and beyond. Check the public sales records to see how well others in the community have sold here. Review the prices and the number of days cars took to sell to get a sense of how you might do selling your own car here. You'll easily see why it's no wonder that Buggy Bank has been voted the best place in the BayArea to buy a car by the readers of the San Francisco Bay Guardian, the East Bay Express and the Contra Costa Times.

I sold my high-end vehicle here in two days thanks to the BuggyBank! Jerry is the man! Customer Service is alive and well at this venerable Berkeley institution. SIX stars all around!!! Here's the deal, though, cars are "for sale by owner" so know what you are getting into. You pay a very nominal fee to display your car on their lot in a killer location...
