McGuire Center grads launch AZ CarMart
The company facilitates private party vehicle sales by renting out display and transaction space in one central location. Each weekend, buyers and sellers of cars, trucks, boats, RVs, and motorcycles are able to conduct sales themselves in spaces provided by AZ CarMart.
Their company eliminates the hassles and safety concerns often associated with selling used vehicles. Rather than deal with salesmen who have commissions in mind, or trying to schedule numerous appointments to view vehicles, buyers can browse the large lot of private party vehicles at their own pace. “We have thought about doing this particular idea since college,” Berger says. “We always thought Tucson was a great market for it because we see vehicles parked along curbs all over the city. With market conditions sagging, we felt this was a good time to offer our services, which emphasize value and efficiency.”
