Vehicle Resale Lot

Need to sell your used car or interested in buying one?

We now operate the vehicle resale lot that was once located in the PX Parking lot. Operating hours only during our shop hours.

Utilization of the Vehicle Resale Lot is open to all USAG Bavaria active duty military, DoD civilians, NATO ID cardholders and US retired military personnel on a space available basis. Priority for use will be given to active duty military and DoD civilians assigned to the USAG Bavaria area of responsibility with PCS orders.

Rules for the Vehicle Resale Lot include:

1. Vehicles must be registered and insured during the duration of the permit.

2. The Vehicle Resale Lot permit must be prominently displayed on the dashboard of the vehicle or the vehicle may be towed.

3. Permit fee is $30 per month.

4. Use of the lot is for private vehicle sales only (No commercial sales operations are allowed).

5. The Vehicle Resale Lot may not be used for long term storage of vehicles.

6. Vehicles with no permit or expired permit will be towed to the military police impound lot at the owner's expense. Abandoned vehicles will become property of the Family and MWR Auto Donation Program and be subject to disposal IAW DoD regulation 4160.21, paragraph 56.

7. Use of the lot is a privilege, not an entitlement. Violations of this application will result in termination of the permit, removal of the vehicle, and appropriate notification to the chain of command.
