CONSIGNMENT - CONSIGN YOUR CAR

Obtain more than trade-in or private party value for your vehicle. 

 
We help your car stand out in the marketplace
 
We will photograph your car in great detail, write a thorough description, then advertise it dozens of websites. You want your special car to look its best for the world to see.

  • eBay Motors
  • Cars.com
  • Yahoo, Car Guru's & AOL Autos
  • DuPont Registry
  • Auto Trader & Classics
 
We make life easier for you
 
We handle the showings, negotiations, payment processing and arrange domestic and international shipping so you don’t have to take time out of your busy schedule. We are also able to offer financing and lease options for buyers – which are difficult or risky to do on your own. We are “on call” and available almost anytime to meet potential buyers and put a deal together on your car. And of course all consigned vehicles are kept indoors in our secure showroom.
 
How we are paid for our services
 
We have a fully transparent process keeping you as a seller involved in the pricing decisions. We’ll show you the sales contracts so you’ll know exactly what your car sells for and what our commission is – we do not charge an upfront consignment fee and we earn a flat commission of 10 percent or $1500, whichever is greater, at the time of sale.
 
How the process works
 
We’ll need you to fill out some easy paperwork – a consignment agreement and check-in questionnaire about your car. And we’ll need a photocopy of your drivers license, registration and title, but you’ll keep the originals with you – along with the tag – until we sell your car. We’ll take care of all the rest and write you a check when the car sells.
 
Cars accepted for consignment
 
We are interested in any nice, presentable vehicles, especially classic cars, sports cars & trucks. The cars we deal in range from “presentable drivers” to trailered show cars – all cars are expected to be rust free and in sound mechanical condition with good paint and nice interiors. 
 
Before bringing in your car for consignment please:
  • Verify that the information on your title or tag receipt is correct
  • The vehicle is lien free
  • Verify that your car has a VIN tag and that it matches the title/registration
  • Review our consignment questionnaire. We will fill this out with you when you bring your car in. We ask that any minor problems be corrected before the vehicle is listed (headlights, taillights, wipers). We understand that these are old cars and none of them are perfect but the more things that work the less you will have to come down on your price to put a deal together with a buyer. We are happy to handle minor repairs in house.
  • Make sure that your vehicle is clean and “showroom ready” – or we are happy to arrange for your car to be detailed upon arrival
 
And of course, if you have any questions about our consignment process send us an e-mail at consign@northshoreautosport.com or call Frank at 312.884.1149.
