Vehicle Paperwork & Accompanying Items

+I’m selling my car at a Gooding & Company auction. What kind of title work do I need to provide?
We require a current title in the current owner’s name in order to offer a car for sale at auction. If the title is in a business or entity name, please let us know immediately so all consignment paperwork and agreements are consistent. We are also able to offer cars at auction on a valid bill of sale. Please let us know that a car will be sold on bill of sale as soon as possible, as we provide this information to potential buyers in the catalogue. If you are selling a car that is registered overseas, then we require whatever title form is valid in that country, for example the V5 form from the UK or the Fahrzeugbrief from Germany. Feel free to contact us with specific questions regarding your overseas title.
+Whom do I give title work to?
Please provide title work of your consigned car to our Sale Administrator, Kay-Ann Pearson.
+Who do I give accompanying items to?
Please provide accompanying items of your consigned car to our Business Affairs Administrative Assistant, Phoebe Berline.

Transport & Delivery

+When do I need to transport my car to the auction site? When does my car need to arrive at the auction site?
Cars need to arrive onsite several days in advance of viewing, so that we may properly catalogue all accompanying items and detail your car for presentation at viewing and for auction. For specific dates when we receive cars on site, please contact Kay-Ann Pearson.
+How do I transport my car to the auction site? Which carrier should I use?
If you are transporting your car within the United States, we have a few select truck carriers that we can recommend. We also work closely with Intercity Lines, whose representatives are available to help arrange post-sale transportation at each of our auction sites. If you are transporting overseas, we work with Cosdel as our shipping broker, who will reach out to the overseas agent to coordinate. There are many choices, however the most popular has been CARS UK/USA. If you use a different overseas agent, they may not necessarily work with Cosdel for import, which is still fine.
+When should my car arrive on site?
Your car should arrive on site several days prior to our viewing schedule, in order to allow us to properly catalogue accompanying items and to detail the car before it is presented at viewing and auction. For our specific arrival and receiving dates for each auction, please contact Kay-Ann Pearson at

Our recommended transport companies are briefed on our preferred delivery locations. If you are transporting your car independently, please contact Kay-Ann Pearson or Ricky Reed, our Logistics Manager for car delivery instructions.

All sales with Gooding & Company are subject to the terms of our consignment agreement. The agreement contains our terms and fees for the auction and private sale process, including insurance, loss/damage liability, shipping and illustration provisions.
