Mentor, OH – Selling a classic car in today’s economy requires skills that only professional classic car dealers possess — such as determining value, preparing for sale and knowing how to reach the prospective buyer.
“There’s more to selling a classic car than placing an EBay ad, running a classified ad and putting a sign on a car at a cruise-in,” says Joe Carroll, owner of Best of Show Automotive (BOSA) – an international classic / high performance car dealer. “You’ll get tire kickers and low ball offers. Eventually the owner gets frustrated and ends up giving the car away.”
BOSA has launched an innovative consignment program that allows classic car owners to get fair market value for their cars. Carroll explains: “We are setting up a nationwide dealer rep network in which our reps identify classic cars ‘for sale’ that we consign at our dealership. We average a 90%+ sell-through rate on consigned vehicles. We detail each car, run it through our mechanical shop, give it a professional photo/video shoot and market it on a worldwide stage – our website averages 1.2 million hits each month.”
Being an official BOSA dealer rep is like running a home-based business. Carroll explains: “You set your own hours and appointments. All you need is a digital camera, a computer and an ‘eye’ for cars with the most market value. We offer a 20% commission on consignments for every car brought to us that we sell.”
