What Are "Buy It Now" Cars?

Our Buy It Now program offers a selection of our vehicles for sale ahead of the scheduled car auction date. Certain sellers allow us to offer pre-auction specials at "Buy It Now" prices, letting you get the keys to one of these vehicles before they're officially put up for auction.

Our collection of pre-auction vehicles is limited based on the seller's preferences and are selected for their uniqueness. They're only available briefly before being sold at our public car auction, so if you see a vehicle that catches your eye be sure to act fast!

The Buy It Now program is designed to offer vehicles for sale before the scheduled auction date. Carriage Trade is a public auto auction where certain sellers allow us to offer pre-auction specials at “Buy It Now” prices. These vehicles are selected for their uniqueness and are available briefly before being sold at auction.


These vehicles are kept on our lot and we encourage you to come and view the vehicles prior to making a purchase. Feel free to bring a mechanic with you. Please contact Buy It Now Information at 610-825-7085 ext. 4411 to schedule an appointment.

It is important to understand that these vehicles are not owned by Carriage Trade Public Auto Auction. The prices of the vehicles are set by the seller and not by Carriage Trade; therefore, the prices on Buy It Now vehicles are non-negotiable. If you decide that you would like to purchase the vehicle but would like to try to buy it at a lower price, you are encouraged to bid on the vehicle when it is offered at the auction. As a general rule, the vehicles are priced way below retail value as they are purchased under auction policy. Please refer to the procedures tab for a full explanation of our rules and policies. Thank you for your interest in the Buy It Now program.
