"First time we have sold a vehicle as a private party, we received several inquires in the first four hours and sold the car on the first day. Great way to sell a car, a very refined system and tremendous support. We appreciate the staff assistance and are happy to recommend Auto Fair to others. "

What You Get


Thousands of Buyers, Unprecedented Results

Thousands of members of the general public come from all over the greater Sacramento region to the Auto Fair ready to buy, every weekend rain or shine since 1997. Our incredible sale rates prove that there is no comparison to the momentum generated by our unique process, which allows buyers to narrow their scope with a huge selection all in one location, and then interact with vehicles they are serious about on the spot and in a fun atmosphere with no pressure. The result is unmatched rates of sale, whether under $1,000 or over $100,000.

We Work, You Play!

Owners do not stay with vehicles, so you can go enjoy your weekend! Buyers come here by the thousands to avoid the pressure of the vehicle owner or a salesperson hanging over them. Instead, vehicles stay locked until we accompany interested parties for vehicle security purposes only, and we stay with the vehicle the entire time while they inspect it inside and out if you choose to leave your keys (99.9% of customers do). This process screens out parties who turn out not to be interested and "tire-kickers" in a public place rather than at your home and on your time. This way the only calls you should get are from truly interested buyers who wish to arrange a test drive or make a deal at a time convenient for both of you during, or after, the weekend.

24 Hour Security Provided

Lot attendants are on duty during our open hours. When we are closed, no one is allowed on the premises and private security is contracted to patrol the Auto Fair lot. We also use video and electronic surveillance and the Sierra College Police patrol the Campus as well.

Easy Come. Easy Go. Easy Sale.

• When you register here on our website, check-in takes under 3 minutes, and check-out is even faster.

• Vehicles can be left on display all weekend from 4pm Friday to 6pm Sunday. Arrange test-drives at YOUR convenience.

• You (the vehicle owner) may remove the vehicle and/or bring it back anytime during our generous event hours.

• We provide all supplies, DMV forms, window signs, tape, etc. Just show up and drop off.

• Free Blue Book Price lookups to help buyers move forward for most autos upon request.

Goodbye Stranger Danger

• Used vehicles need to be seen in person to determine further interest, yet it is not safe to invite strangers to your home, and meeting them around town can be just as scary. Our process allows buyers to inspect your vehicle inside and out at our location during our generous event hours.

• Remember your mother telling you not to take candy from or go on test drives with strangers? OK so that might be a stretch, but no matter how tough you are you don't want to jeopardize your personal safety to sell a vehicle, yet you don't want to let a stranger loose with your vehicle either. After all, even if you hold supposed collateral against it being stolen, what will you do if it comes back with something wrong and no proof of what happened on the test-drive because you weren't there? We solve this dilemma by recording the ID of the test-driver you are leaving with, for your personal safety and vehicle security upon request. A third party recording who you left with helps ensure no funny business is pulled on the test drive that puts your personal safety at risk, which allows you to avoid letting a stranger leave with it unattended.

Tiny Investment, Giant Return

It is widely known that if you have a commodity to sell, you will generate the highest selling price by drawing as many potential buyers as possible to your offering. But in the case of used vehicles especially, the quality of that exposure is as important as the quantity, because unlike some other goods, used vehicles need to be seen in person to determine further interest. Cast too wide a low-quality net, and the only extra exposure you'll get is junk leads that waste your time and provide false hope. The Auto Fair process is so effective because buyers can not only see the vehicles in person, but can actually interact with them on the spot, while we supervise the showing to protect your vehicle. This both creates momentum toward a purchase and at the same time acts as a filter, as buyers only need to contact you if they are actually serious and ready to proceed with a purchase. Combining the Auto Fair's high quantity of exposure, the highest quality exposure possible, and the urgency generated by the weekend format, has proven to produce the most valuable net result possible, which is that vehicles tend to fetch their optimal market value when sold through the Auto Fair. And since an optimized selling price for a vehicle can be measured through hundreds or thousands of dollars more in your pocket, the tiny display fee is actually a very profitable investment that no other method can offer.

Filter the Nonsense

Even if you also want to use other methods of advertising, directing buyers to see it at the Auto Fair first and then call you if they are actually interested is the best way to avoid safety concerns and screen all the hassles like useless calls about details they could have seen in person,lookers who mostly turn out to not be interested, missed showing appointments, etc. Note that we recommend you do NOTpost contact information on classified websites, because they are all farmed to add your phone number to telemarketing databases, and regardless of whether your email address is visible or masked in the ad, any system that passes emails through to your Inbox will cause unwanted and often malicious emails to be delivered. These emails are engineered to look like real buyers, but as soon as you click in them or reply by phone, text message, or email, you are added to spam marketing lists. Instead, simply place an ad with no phone number and no email pass-through, then direct buyers in the ad to call the phone number posted on the window sign at the Auto Fair. This way only serious buyers who have actually seen and inspected your vehicle in person have access to call you.

A great service, and a great deal!

You may be thinking all this will set you back a few thousand bucks or a percentage of your proceeds. Nope, not even close. We provide all of this for just one shockingly low flat rate display fee as shown to the right, with NO commission, NO consignment fee, and NO other fees when it sells. We have kept the cost to display your vehicle so low that it's a no brainer alternative to the traditional hassles and risks of selling on your own, or taking the hit of selling to a dealership at some low-dough trade-in value. Compare us to other services that are less effective yet charge thousands of dollars or 5-10% in commission, and you'll see why your friends and neighbors have been raving about us since 1997.

And as a bonus...

Display fee proceeds fund scholarships, equipment and programs through the Sierra College Foundation!

What It Costs


Market Update: What we have come to know each year as the "spring buying frenzy" is in full swing, with such strong sales of cars, trucks, vans and SUV's that our inventory is getting depleted much faster than it can be replaced week to week right now. This is also the time of year where we see an influx of buyers motivated to buy used after the new RV/Boat/Cycle/ATV shows, and again over recent weeks a solid stream of buyers has vastly outnumbered our inventory on these items, with most properly priced RV's, boats, cycles and ATV's selling surprisingly quickly. Our biggest concern continues to be maintaining enough inventory for the extremely high number of serious buyers we continue to see depleting our inventory each weekend in all categories.
