Sell Your Vehicle
Whether you have a Car, Boat, Truck, RV, Motorcycle, Powersport or some Heavy Equipment to sell, Private Party Sales can help you get it sold!
There are many benefits to selling your vehicle with Private Party Sales. There is NO commission, NO consignment fee – nor do we take a percentage of your sales price. We simply license you a parking space which puts all the money in YOUR POCKET!
Used cars are always in high demand. The best way to get the most for your vehicle is to sell it yourself. The old way usually involves strangers coming to your house to check out your vehicle, which can be a little scary or lots of annoying calls from people asking questions and setting up appointments they never show up to.
At Private Party Sales, we take care of that for you. We offer a professional, safe and highly visible location to put your vehicle on display. Our process is simple: We license you a space of your choice on our lot (based on availability) to showcase your vehicle. We’re located right on I-17 on Black Canyon Hwy and Dunlap in Phoenix, AZ where more than 100,000 cars pass by every day. Buyers come to Private Party Sales to look over all the vehicles on the lot without any pressure of a salesman. Once they are ready to take a test drive or make a deal, they give you a call directly and because it is a private party sale, there is No Sales Tax, which means they have more money to spend on the vehicle they want.
Registering ahead of time for Private Party Sales on line is highly recommended – but not required. You can also register on site but the process could take longer and there could be a wait. Once you arrive, we will check you in and have you park in the space you chose when you registered. We will tag your keys, make sure your vehicle’s information sheet is in the right place and park your car to sell.
Be sure to check out our checklist page for additional details.
Buying A Vehicle
When looking to buy a Car, Boat, RV or Motorcycle, Private Party Sales is the place to make your purchase!
There are NO consignments, NO commissions, NO salesmen and saving the best for last… NO SALES TAX. There are NO fees or charges whatsoever to buy a vehicle here. All vehicles are for sale by a private party that has leased a space from Private Party Sales. These are private party sales, not a dealership. We generally expect to have hundreds of vehicles at any given time and the selection is constantly changing. We welcome you to come down and check it out for yourself, as used vehicles need to be seen in person to determine further interest. Being able to look at 100’s of vehicles at one location often speeds up the buying process and many buyers find they like a different car much better than the one they originally set out for. Private Party Sales allows you to look at vehicles and only speak with the seller if you are truly interested in that vehicle.
Private sellers license a spot to bring their vehicle to Private Party Sales. Placed on a side window, you will find the vehicles information with all of the details you want to know including year, make, model, miles, price, equipment and the owner’s contact information. When you find a vehicle you are interested in, our staff is on site to open the vehicle and you will be allowed to start it. Our staff is here to help, but please keep in mind they have no knowledge of the individual vehicles and are not permitted to provide their personal opinion nor in any way sell a vehicle or offer advice, so that you won’t feel any pressure. If you have additional questions about the vehicle, want to request a test-drive, or make a deal, you will call the seller directly at the phone number posted on the Vehicle Profile Sheet.

All vehicles on the lot are on our website. There are vehicles that may be here one minute and then 20 minutes later could be sold. We understand that this may not be ideal for far-away buyers, but we have 5 acres and it can be extremely difficult to keep up to the minute stats on a vehicle that is sold by a private party. 90% of buyers end up buying something different then what they set out to buy originally. You have a lot that you can walk around and look without pressure from a salesmen, without sales tax and with a HUGE variety of vehicles to look through.
Yes, many of the vehicles sold at PPS still have loans. Because all lenders deal with payoffs and releasing the vehicle’s title in a different manner, we recommend contacting your lender to find out what their specific process will be.
