So You’ve Decided to Auction Your Classic Vehicle Online?
So you’ve decided to auction your classic vehicle online. You have found this site and are excited about the possibilities that await you. But before we get started, let me tell you a little bit about what I’ve learned from my experience in the field of classic vehicle auctions. There are many things to consider when deciding to go with an online auction, as opposed to selling through a car dealer or selling your car in person.
Estimate Your Classic Car’s Value
How do you know what your car is worth? Well, primarily we need to determine the condition of your vehicle. Is it in perfect working order or does it have a few issues that may cause someone else some concern? If there are minor problems with the engine and/or tires then this will be reflected in its price.
A classic car needs to look good if you want buyers interested enough to place a bid! When estimating the value for any car, always remember that these tips also apply: age, mileage, modifications done by previous owner(s), prior accidents (if they were repaired well), as well as all other factors like uniqueness and rarity which can affect pricing.
Make Your Car Stand Out
The first thing anyone will notice before anything else when looking at a vehicle listing page is the pictures of the car and in order to ensure getting buyers interested enough from just one look, make sure they are good quality photos. Take numerous angles with different views so there isn’t any confusion about what condition it’s been kept in over years or decades.
The more clear these images are – the better chance of attracting interest right off the bat! If possible include close-up shots like undercarriage, engine bay area, and all areas where those minor problems may be hiding as well as interior shots too (if the car has been well kept). Don’t forget any modifications that have been done to the vehicle and make sure these are pictured as well.
Advertise Your Car’s Auction
Another thing to keep in mind is advertising. Classic Vehicle Auction takes the guesswork out of this by doing all of the paid advertising work for you! However, you should still post about it on your social media where your friends can share it with potential customers.
Prospective buyers are out there ready to buy your classic vehicle at auction – they just need to know about it. Take some time to learn about advertising for your car’s auction and the tips and tricks that will help you get the best price.
