We handle every single aspect of the sale for you!

With our consignment service, sellers pay nothing until the vehicle sells!
Your vehicle will receive a thorough inspection, professional photography to include at least 40 photos showcasing each aspect of your vehicle (interior, exterior, engine bay, artistic photos of the outside, and detailed photos of each panel), and a professionally formulated for sale listing. Your vehicle will be displayed for sale on our dealership website with google lead generation, Facebook marketplace and many other vehicle advertising websites like autotrader, carsforsale.com, classiccars.com, sellyourclassic.com, ebay etc. The number and variety of dedicated selling websites will vary depending on the audience best suited for your specific vehicle.
This service is intended to be flexible and make it convenient for you. You can choose to keep the vehicle in your possession, or we can store the vehicle for you at our facility while it is listed for sale. Normally, consignment contracts will have a 90 day term and the consignment fee consists of a small % of your vehicles selling price or a flat fee, the terms of each deal are flexible but the goal is to ensure fairness for both sides. There is a significant amount of work and cost that goes into creating vehicle listings and marketing each vehicle professionally and most importantly to the right buyers. Typically, vehicles we list for sale are sold within 45 days of the listing going live.
Process: To start off we will need your VIN, current mileage, a few photos showing the inside and outside of the vehicle, and a brief description of your vehicle. After that we get to work performing market analysis on your specific vehicle and provide pricing valuations from JD Power & Kelly Blue Book, plus we provide at least three comparable vehicles for sale. We personally go over our anticipated listing price and estimated selling price of your vehicle, after that we will finalize the terms and conditions of our contract, then once we receive the vehicle we hit the ground running with the inspection, photography/videography and formulating the for-sale listing. Our turn times from contract to live listing can vary but normally the vehicle will go live within 7 business days. Not only will our process save you a ton of headaches and hassle, but our consignment services will get your vehicle sold for more money and faster than you can do it yourself!
Getting you paid!: We also handle receiving the funds for the vehicle and paying any applicable taxes/tag/title fee’s on behalf of the buyer. Sellers will receive their funds once they have cleared the dealer’s account (usually same day). If the consignment vehicle currently has a loan we handle the payoff directly with the lienholder and we coordinate the title release as well. We ensure the seller and buyer both have all proper state mandated paperwork of the transaction.
Requirements: The vehicle must CLEAN and free from any issues, each vehicle we take in is inspected, additional charges may apply for any detailing or mechanical or cosmetic repairs we may have to complete that were not previously disclosed. Any additional fees will be discussed with the seller before they are completed or incurred. Seller is required to maintain insurance on the vehicle until it is officially sold & released. If the seller wishes to retain possession of the vehicle while it is on consignment the dealer must have access to the vehicle at any time for showings, test-drives and on the selling date.
