Working with a Broker

Using a professional automotive broker to purchase your next car will be very different from shopping at a traditional dealership. Instead of wandering around huge parking lots filled with cars, you will receive one-on-one attention as we help you decide which car is right for you. BAHPC will take care of locating, evaluating and purchasing the vehicle, including all the little details (like dealing with the DMV and completing smog testing). Finally, you come to our offices to finish the paperwork and pick up your new car – and you're on your way!

For a complete step-by-step summary of the process, please see below:

1. Consult with BAHPC to determine your vehicle of choice.

You probably have an idea of what you’re looking for – in fact, you may have your heart set on a particular make, model and year. However, if you don’t know where to start, are torn between two vehicles, or have any questions about the right car for your needs, we are here to help! Our office has both online and hard-cover resources, full of industry - and consumer-based information that will provide answers to any questions you may have about your next car. Because BAHPC is working for you, we will provide unbiased assistance as you choose your car – with no pressure to purchase a certain make or model that happens to be in our inventory.

2. Confirm your final decision with BAHPC.

We require detailed information about your desired vehicle, including: make, model, year, color, mileage range, must-have options, and the maximum price you are willing to pay. We are happy to consider any additional criteria that you specify as well. At this point, we can provide you with information about the vehicle price you can expect to pay. We will also agree on a spending limit so there are no surprises down the road.

3. Hire BAHPC to purchase your car.

Once you give us your deposit, we will immediately go to work to locate your desired vehicle. BAHPC will find your car at wholesale dealer-only auction, thoroughly inspect your vehicle, check CarFAX and reports, and email pictures to you.  Once you give the go-ahead, we will purchase the vehicle and have it inspected (again!) and smogged by an independent third-party professional mechanic.  We also have the car professionally detailed, complete all California DMV paperwork, and top off all fluids - including gas!

4. Pick up your new car at the BAHPC office.

We will complete the transaction in our offices at Pier 54, located conveniently off highway 280 in San Francisco. You will come down to inspect the car to ensure it meets your requirements. We will sit down for fifteen minutes, sign some paperwork, and then you drive off in your new car! Believe it or not, it is just that easy.

5. Rejoice that you now have car of your dreams!

...without the nightmare of visiting a dealership! We also offer a 3 day/250 mile guarantee on all our used cars. If you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason, you can return your vehicle to us within 3 days for a full refund! As an added bonus, each purchase come with a special free Car Care Package, full of treats and goodies to help you care for and enjoy your new car.
