Bobby Adams III and his team at The Used Car Club, an automotive buying and consignment center in Scottsdale, make car sales the enjoyable experience it should be –– not one that is dreaded by so many.

Having opened last November at 7360 E Acoma Drive, Suite 15, in the Scottsdale Airpark, the dealership provides customer-centric ways to sell and buy hand-selected pre-owned cars, trucks and SUVs.

Adams has been in the car business since youth. It’s an inheritance. Last century, his grandfather, Bob Adams Sr., sold classics such as Duesenberg’s and Caddy’s and owned an American Motors dealership. His dad, fellow Scottsdale resident, Bob Adams Jr., also sold cars and restored as many as 10 classic Kaiser Darrins. “Think of us at The Used Car Club as your family in the car business,” Bobby says.

For those who need to sell quickly, The Used Car Club will buy your car today. “We give you the experience of getting fair market value for your vehicle without the usual headaches of selling it yourself,” explains Adams. “Give us the last look. If we can’t beat another dealer’s written offer, we will send you a $100 check.”

An option –– for those who have more time and want to maximize their return –– is the Car Club’s Consignment program. “We professionally market, represent and sell your car for you,” he says, noting that the company’s consignment fee is the lowest in the industry with the most return value.

Led by General Manager Dylan Spotleson, the staff of vehicle specialists arrange for high-definition photos, a 360-degree video walk-around and 3-D imaging of each car. Every vehicle is also inspected by the team and is offered with car history and condition reports, noting any imperfections. Until the car is sold, it remains indoors for viewing by potential buyers in the warehouse/showroom.

“We make full use of the internet, such as Autotrader.com, Cargurus.com plus many more advertising sources. This includes the use of social media to make sure you receive full retail, or more, for your car,” he says. His group also uses vlogging, podcasting, and other collaborative methods to ensure success. And, in the future, Adams plans to expand The Used Car Club as a national platform and increase his onsite experience to a 100,000-square-foot used car supercenter.

For consignors, patience can equal thousands more in your final check. “By waiting a little longer you might get another $10 thousand for your Bentley or $2 thousand for your Honda,” he says.

Buyers always see fresh high-quality inventory at the warehouse. “We buy mostly from private-party owners and not the dealer auctions as most do,” he says.

“A wide range of financing can be arranged, and we even take trades, too. The Used Car Club handles everything for buyers from start to finish and beyond.”

The relationship-building client experience sets Adams’ company apart. “Our warehouselike showroom is more like an Apple Store-style environment, and our approach is transparent, laid back and comfortable, with no one pressuring you,” he says. “We are your Open Door for cars.”

The Used Car Club is open six days a week for walk-in or appointment. For more information, see theusedcarclub.com, call 480.378.2393 or email [email protected].
