Consign/Sell/Trade

Sometimes this is the hardest decision of them all is deciding to sell that special car. We understand that it can be an emotional process! TLD can help you thru this experience and partner with you to make this as painless as possible. Once you’ve made that decision, TLD can in some cases purchase the car directly from you or work with you through our consignment process. Either way, we guarantee our personal attention and full expertise. Our 35 years of automotive marketing experience will ultimately help to achieve the best results.

TLD understands the global market. Some cars are worth more in overseas markets due to the current fluctuation of currency. Consignment with TLD will present your car to thousands of knowledgeable enthusiasts and collectors all over the world by working with contacts and publications with global exposure. We take the time necessary to market your car carefully to specific targets and we handle everything from the professional presentation to arranging shipping and title/money transfers. Let us deal with all of the correspondence, tire-kickers, test drives and time stealers and take the worry out of the entire process.

How does it work?

Consigning with us is smart and a straight forward process. It eliminates the troubles associated with selling a car on your own. We take care of everything. TLD will professionally photograph your car, shoot video in some instances and do all of the ad write-ups. Our consignments consist of a 3 month/90 day agreement, plus a small percentage of the sale when it happens. The agreements can be extended in the event that the car does not sell in the first 90 days. It has been our experience that with careful research of your vehicle, evaluating the market properly and discussing a reasonable asking price with you that the process very rarely exceeds 90 days. During that time we ask for the exclusive right to represent your car. This is a stipulation we feel necessary as there is nothing more counter-productive to the sale of a car than having it show up from different sources. This includes your own activities as well. Please note that the car, in some instances, can stay with you to drive and enjoy during this process, however we have found that the car is easier to sell if it is on display in one of our two showrooms. We can provide shipping to our facility or you can deliver the car yourself. There is no additional charge for placement in one of our showrooms.
What we will need from you?

We will ask you for a complete and thorough description of the car’s condition and history. We do this through and interview process with one of our advisors. We feel it is best to inspect the car in-house, evaluate the current market and then discuss the asking price and final price with you.

Additionally, copies of important paperwork such as a certificate of originality, restoration receipts, service receipts and owner’s history. The more complete the documentation of a vehicle is, the better it is for the sale.

What is the cost?

Initial cost of a 90 day consignment is priced at $750. This includes prominent placement in one of our showrooms for up to 3 months, professional photography, ad creation, ad placement, marketing blasts to our extensive list of clients and buyers as well as an aggressive global marketing campaign. With the completion of a successful sale, a predetermined commission will be due. Our commission schedule is very competitive.

Consigning with us is personal, easy and profitable for you. We guarantee the utmost in customer service, professionalism and the discretion of your privacy. Fill out the online consignment application or just give us a call.

We look forward to speaking with you!
