How To Consign
If you are ready to sell your vehicle with Gooding & Company, please contact a specialist directly or download and complete our consignment questionnaire. Whether you wish to sell a single car or a large collection, there are a number of ways to have your property valued:
• Contact a specialist to arrange for a visit and valuation
• Request an informal complimentary auction estimate online
• Provide information for an extensive valuation
Sign A Seller’s Agreement
Before you sell your collector car with Gooding & Company you must sign an exclusive consignment agreement. This is a contract we have with our sellers in which we agree to sell their vehicle either through auction or via a private treaty sale. 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. Please note that a clear, transferable title must be provided by all sellers.
How To Consign
Once we have received a seller’s agreement, Gooding & Company’s catalogue department will contact you to arrange for photography and discuss the description. Our photographers, writers and researchers are among the best in the business and our catalogue presentations are widely considered the finest in the industry.
Make Shipping Arrangements
If you decide to bring your car to one of our auction venues, we are happy to assist you with transportation arrangements. However, you are always welcome to use your own carrier. Please contact the Gooding & Company office for further details.
After The Sale
After a successful sale, you will be notified of the final bid price for your consignment. If a buyer wasn’t found, you will be able to speak with a specialist to discuss possible post-auction sales or additional marketing efforts. Approximately 30 days after each auction, Gooding & Company settles payment for successful sellers along with a settlement statement itemizing the commission and any other charges.
