VENUE OPTIONS FOR SELLING YOUR COLLECTOR CAR

Should you sell your car at auction, through a dealer, or through private sale? Here are the 4 most popular options, and primary considerations for each:

Type of SaleProsCons
Online auctionTypically the quickest turnaround from when you apply to when your car sells. Sales happen daily.Many buyers are still wary of buying high-end cars online, although that is changing every day.
In-person auctionBuyers are able to see your car in person. If you have a highly collectable car that will benefit from inspection, this is a great choice.Periodic events mean that you may need to wait a few weeks, or even a few months, until the sale takes place.
DealershipExperts can help you to find the right buyer for you.Typically you will pay a higher fee to a dealer, than you will to an auction.
Private saleYou have the most control over how the car is marketed, and pay the least amount of fees. Limited marketing reach and lots of extra work for busy people.
