FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
What is the Cost to Sell my Vehicle at Auction?
It only costs $150 to run your car through the auction (less than the cost of a one week classified ad). When your car sells, a sales commission is charged and deducted from the sale proceeds of only $150 for sales up to $10,000. Sales in excess of $10,000 are subject to an additional 2% of the selling price of the amount in excess of $10,000.
#1) Vehicle Sells for $8,500
Seller’s Total Cost: $150 Consignment Fee + $150 Sale Fee = $300 Total Cost
#2) Vehicle Sells for $15,000
Seller’s Total Cost: $150 Consignment Fee + $150 Sale Fee + ($15,000 – $10,000 = $5,000 x 2% = $100) = $400 Total Cost
How Often are Auctions Conducted?

How do I Know I am Getting a Fair Price?

Can You Assist me in Determining My Vehicle’s Value?
Our knowledgeable team would be pleased to assist you in determining an accurate value and reserve price for your vehicle.
Can I Determine the Minimum Acceptable Selling Price?
Yes. You may set a minimum acceptable selling price for your vehicle. If the high bid price at auction meets or exceeds this amount the vehicle will be sold on the auction block. If the high bid is close to the desired price the auctioneer may announce “subject to confirmation” which mean you will have 24 hours to decide whether or not to accept the high bid. If the high bid is not close to your desired reserve the vehicle will become a “no-sale” and you will have the option to rerun your auto for an additional $100 or pickup at your convenience by 4 pm the Thursday following the auction.
Who Handles Paperwork Involved in the Transaction?
We will assist you with consignment paperwork and handle all transaction related paperwork as well as the collection and remission of New York State sales tax.
