Public Before Auction

Welcome to Public Before Auction

What is Public Before Auction?

Bob Penkhus' Public Before Auction is a select offering of used cars, trucks, and suvs that have traditionally been sold to independent dealers and small used car lots. These are vehicles that fall outside of the "Penkhus Promise" used car guidelines. They are generally higher mileage, older, lower-priced vehicles that are perhaps 'flawed' in some way.

    Some general guidelines for a wholesale vehicle:
        They are sold without any inspection.
        They are sold without a warranty.
        They are offered for a limited time only - 14-21 days.
        They are sold 100% AS-IS without any Penkhus Promise benefits or warranty coverage.
        They are sold with our "best price" posted on the windshield, there is no negotiation necessary.

Why Public Before Auction?

SImply put - our customers have requested that we make these vehicles available. Many of our customers have a need for basic transportation. By offering a broader selection of "kid's cars", 2nd car, college car, and other inexpensive transportation options, we feel we can better serve our current customers and the general market.

The Value Equation
