Our consignment program is designed to provide you with an easy and efficient way to sell your vehicle.

Why hassle with test drives, inconvenient phone calls, and strangers coming to your home?

We have the experience and resources to handle any situation that comes up during the sale of your vehicle as well as being able to provide financing and warranties.   


We’ve had our in-house detailing shop open for 10 years now, offering a wide variety of options from the basic wash-and-wax to total interior/ exterior detailing and more.

We'll detail almost anything - from motorcycles, cars, trucks, RVs, horse trailers, boats and even planes!

Public Storage

Store your personal or business belongings at our new self-storage facility. We offer 8X10 and 8X20 units. Keep your things local in our clean, high quality storage units with easy access to Highway 1.

Feel safe and secure as our property is fenced and secured.  

Hassle-free, month-to-month rental agreements at competitive rates!


Our Inventory

B.K. Motors has a wide range of vehicles for sale - economy, midsize, luxury, sport utility, vans, trucks and, at times, commercial vehicles.

Our cars are privately owned vehicles consigned to us for sale.  Purchasing a consignment vehicle from B.K. Motors, Inc. ensures you'll be able to obtain more maintenance and ownership history than if the vehicle was bought at an auto auction - which is where most dealerships buy their inventory.

All vehicles have been smogged, safety checked and detailed.  Most come with a free 3-month or 3K-mile service contract.

We have found that Craigslist is a more efficient way of selling our consignment vehicles. So while we won’t be listing our vehicles on this website any longer, please follow the link below to browse our current stock.

Disclaimer:  While B.K. Motors, Inc. strives to include the correct information pertaining to its consignment vehicles, it is not responsible for any errors or omissions in its vehicle descriptions. The vehicle may include more or less equipment, and vary in exact color from what is listed. 

Please note that we will continue to use this website to provide pertinent information on our other services such as consignment, detailing, storage, and much more.

Consignment Program

How It Works

  • We work on a net figure with you.

  • Anything over and above that net figure is what we keep for selling the vehicle

  • There is a one-time fee of $199. What we do for that $199 is get the vehicle smogged and safety checked, completely detailed (inside and out) and wash the car once a week. All of this actually costs us $260.

  • The consignment period is for 60 days. We sell most cars between 2 to 3 weeks. If by some chance, the car has not sold at the end of the 60 day period, you may either pick up the vehicle or leave it here on a day-to-day basis at no extra charge.

  • If we don't feel we can sell your car, we won't take it in. We don't want to waste your $199 or our time.

  • We go out on all test drives. Nobody drives your car unless a sales-person is with them.

  • It's a good idea to leave your full insurance coverage on the car while we have it. We have liability, but do NOT have fire, theft or collision.

  • If someone comes in with a down payment and wants to buy your car, we take care of finding bank financing for them.

  • We take care of all DMV work for both the buyer and the seller.

B.K. Motors offers assistance in arranging financing for our customers.

We have several financing sources available, including banks and credit unions.  Rates and terms depend upon your credit history and credit score.  We are also very creative when it comes to helping you get financing, so if your credit isn't perfect, don't let it stand in the way of coming by and seeing us.



For the last 15 years we have represented AUL Service Contracts -  considered to be one of the best extended warranty companies on the market. We offer, on many of our vehicles, a free 3-month or 3K-mile power train service contract. In many cases this represents an $800.00 value.

Also, various extended terms and coverage are available at very affordable prices. Repairs may be performed at any licensed repair facility. This means you may use your local family service station or a franchised dealership!

Recently, because of our long relationship with AUL, we have been authorized to offer extended service contracts to the public. This means that once your vehicle has been pre-inspected by our authorized repair shop in Belmont, you may purchase an extended service contract for the car you currently drive - no matter where you acquired it! If you’re not in a position to purchase a new pre-owned vehicle at this time, this is a great way to avoid any costly repairs on the car you own now.

Please call us for details.

“BK Motors kept all their promises”

After driving by BK Motors multiple times and seeing a regularly changing inventory of well maintained cars for sale, we decided to sell our BMW X3 over BK Motors. Bob (the owner) is easy and fun to work with and has a lot of experience in selling used cars. The mandatory detailing was absolutely worth the money and our car sold within the estimated time frame of 2 weeks. Bob and BK Motors kept all their promises and our experience was absolutely stellar. I highly recommend BK Motors!

“Bob is a super nice guy",

Honest, straightforward and trustworthy. We recently bought a used BMW from him and the whole deal was pleasant and painless, just how buying a car should be! I would recommend buying from him in a heartbeat. We love his kitty as well!


— Kevin S.

"Bought my car from Bob Kay at BK Motors last week. Was probably the easiest car transaction I made in the last 20 years"

— Susan B, Half Moon Bay

“Oh my, it is gorgeous!"

Thank you so much for giving me a new car again!  I want to put an ad in the window saying where I got it done!

How about a sign that says. . ."Look at me shine!  I was just detailed at BK Motors!"!!!!

— Kristin Jensen-McNamara
Half Moon Bay, CA

“Next car? BK Motors.”

Just bought a Mercedes from Bob Kay.  Great guy who helped me buy this car instead of wanting to make a sale. Thorough follow up on the questions that I had about the car. Next car? BK Motors.

— Lemke Mier,
Redwood City, CA

“Bob Kay is a no pressure salesman & is transparent and honest with all cars he sells.”

I have purchased 4 cars to date from Bob, and we still have them all.  I have purchased a 2003 convertible Cobra, 2003 Audi RS6, Chevy Volt, and Subaru Outback.  As you can see he sells all sorts of cars, and he stands behind each one.  Buying from him is a breeze.  He is a low-no pressure salesman and is transparent and honest with all cars he sells.  He also runs a top flight detail shop captained by Jose, who genuinely cares about making each car you bring look its best.  I look forward to future dealings with BK Motors!

— D.W.
Daly City, CA


“I highly recommend!”

To my utter shock and joy my car was returned almost like new! Dog hair and sand was gone, everything sparkled, and even the oil stain was almost undetectable. The detailer EVEN put my front license plate back on and remounted the lid to the storage compartment. All this for under $150.

If only everyone had this kind of work ethic, the world would be such a better place! I highly recommend.

"I am still smiling about how beautiful my car looks"

When I left the VW showroom with this car brand new in March of 2002, the car was not as clean nor as sparkly as it was today after B.K. Detailing. Your wizard, Jose, did an amazing job on it. Thanks so much for the great work and the fast turnaround. I was able to leave the car in the morning, complete all my errands and meetings in HMB and still get back to Pacifica by mid-afternoon. That's a big convenience. And...I am still smiling about how beautiful my car looks. I will refer a lot of my friends to you in the future knowing they will be pleased, as well.

This guy is a true gentleman. He is located in Half Moon Bay, CA and my wife and I live in Sacramento. On Sunday, I found a car that I was interested in, so I called. Bob answered all of my questions and said that he was willing to stick around while we made the 3 hour drive. I showed up to find that everything he said was the truth, and that he was a very nice guy. We couldn't buy the car that day because the banks were closed, but he was willing to wait up until 10pm on Monday for us to arrive (darn work). He secured us unbelievable financing and did not, and can not, add points of interest on top. Price, Amazing, Bob, Gentleman, Car, Impeccable. My wife and I are so thankful to Bob, this is how car buying should be.
