HERE’S HOW TO SELL:

  • We have 19 years experience so we will help you lot your items in the most attractive way.
  • We want to help you get the most out of your items.
  • Your items will be numbered, displayed in lots and sold and then you will receive a check for the sale amount, less the auctioneer’s commission.
  • Items which you can no longer use may be just what the other racers need and they’ll be bidding against each other to get them.
  • The auction does the advertising, attracts the crowd and the bidders.
  • These are consignment auctions which means your items are turned over to the auction for sale during the auction.
  • These are not “flea markets,” “private sales,” or “swap meets.” It is our goal that everything sells.
  • Study the “Auction Commission Schedule” thoroughly.
  • It is to your advantage to group or pool small items together, when possible, so they are sold as a single “lot” number.
  • The commissions are calculated individually on each lot sold, not the total sales of each consignor.
  • Don’t bring junk. Junk and wrecked parts are just a waste of time for everyone involved.
  • One Pallet Is NOT One Lot.
  • Check the schedule to see when consignments are first accepted.
  • Other than pre-registered PRIME TIME and adjacent to prime time lots, those consigning early receive the better selling times.
  • Our recommendation is to call in advance or send in this registration form to get “pre-registered lot assignments.”
  • Once all lots are full, no further consignments will be accepted.
  • Any licensed vehicle or trailer consigned to the auction must have clear title and it must be on file in the cashier’s office.
  • Small or loose parts should be put in an open box and the box labeled.
  • Items zip tied to pegboard typically show off a nicer display of your part(s) and sell higher.
  • Have items boxed or organized as you would like to have them sold.
  • Precision parts and assemblies should be wrapped in clear plastic.
  • Heavy items should be brought on rolling stands.
  • Most small and medium size items to be auctioned will be placed on wooden pallets for display and movement within the auction building.
  • Note that the auction staff may change the way you want to “group items” together or split them up.EXAMPLE: SALE (C-lot; race car, reserve: $2700, highest bid: $3000) this car found a new home, it sold. The cashier will collect the bid price ($3000) from the buyer, deduct the listed commission ($3000 X 5%) of $150 and cut the seller a check for the balance of $2850.EXAMPLE: NO-SALE (C-lot; race car, reserve: $2700, highest bid: $2400) this car goes back home. It did not sell. In this case the consignor (seller) must forfeit the $100 no-sale amount already posted. The consignor then removes his car from the building.

The bottom line is have your sale items in the best possible condition and grouping for them to sell. To do that be prepared and pre-register!
