About Us

Bam Auto House Sales has been servicing the city of Chicago and surrounding areas for over 20 years. Starting out in the late 1980s on an unpaved lot and trailer on the corner of West End and Cicero the business quickly grew and in less than 10 years from its trailer with no garage bays. The existing site was too small to service our growing customer base. Ali constructed the 6,000 square foot facility in 1996 with four garage bays, and paved lot to build a proper location for fleet/taxi servicing, vehicle repairs, and auto sales.

Owner Ali Shams has owned and operated Bam Auto House for more than 20 years in the Austin Neighborhood of Chicago. Ali migrated to Chicago in the late 1970s, driving a taxicab, he knew at an early age he had a passion and love for cars. By the 1980s, Ali began sell cars from his home in West Rogers Park, and by the late 1980s he purchased the lot on the corner of West End and Cicero to formally sell cars.

Additionally, Ali spent many years working in the taxi cab / fleet service industry, and through his extensive mechanical knowledge of taxicabs he has became an expert diagnostician for most vehicles used as taxicabs ranging from Ford Marathons to today’s Toyota hybrid vehicles.
