Collector Car Brokering
Collector Car Brokering and ACS role as the Sellers and Buyers Agent
There is a surplus of vintage car trading in the marketplace today. Where does your collector car stand? A Majority of collector car owners use the internet or consign to a live auction venue to seek prospective buyers. Success rates at times fall below 50% for a number of reasons outline below
- 1. Lack of proper photos and marketing materials to stand out in the flooded marketplace
- 2. Improper descriptions and history on each vehicle tends to make potential buyers cautious
- 3. Cars are poorly represented in their mechanical and cosmetic conditions
- 4. Sellers are seeking unrealistic prices due to misguided appraisals or lack of market knowledge
- 5. Lack of broad marketing channels and industry networks that specialist like ACS use every day.
