Of course, you can always go the auction route. But, as a lot of hobbyists have learned the hard way, the only one that nearly always comes out on top in an auction situation is the auctioneer. After charging YOU a fee for the privilege of allowing the auctioneer to earn 15-20% on the sale of your car, they then charge the buyer a fee for the right to bid on your car. Then, the buyer is going to give you top dollar for your car, after battling shill bidders employed by the auctions, outright hucksterism, and the auctions normal unwillingness to stand by the representations made by long lines of scam artists that sell their cars at auction, right? Wrong. The major auto auctions are a suckers game, unless you are a smart buyer.
Online Auto Connection classic car consignment program can take the pain and aggravation out of the selling process, while assuring you of top dollar for your investment-grade collector car.
First, let’s start with our selection processor car consignment. Online Auto Connection only deals with #1 or strong #2 vehicles. At any given time, we have between $4-5M of our own cash on the street in inventory and restoration projects. We are very picky about what we will put on our showroom floor. Conversely, if you have a high quality collector car, what better place to sell it than in a showroom filled with high dollar cars?
If we decide to take your vehicle on consignment, the process is very simple. First, we can help arrange the transport of your vehicle to our showroom. Second, we properly detail your vehicle to the highest of standards. Third, our mechanics give you vehicle a complete safety check, and we provide you with a report of any items we feel need to be repaired in order to make the car saleable. We can handle the repairs at our normal shop rate + any parts that are necessary. Fourth, we conduct a professional photo and video shoot of your collector vehicle, and then we unveil it to the world, with an accurate description of your car’s condition.
In addition to showroom floor time, where your car will be seen by high dollar collectors who visit us from all over the world, your car will be listed on our website, and on five internet storefronts that we market from, which drive traffic to our website. In total, our marketing sites average more than 1.1 MILLION hits per month.
