HOW CONSIGNMENT WORKS
Autohaus Consignment program offers a total car sales service to vehicle owners never offered before on the South Coast. We offer a complete package that takes care of every detail to professionally sell your car in Batemans Bay and achieve the best result possible.
VALET APPRAISAL: Bring us your vehicle and we wil help you pick your price based on current market.
We will do a detailed review of your car to ensure we have the right specs, condition, and mileage.
We look at comparable vehicles for sale in the market to price competitively enough to attract buyers.
INSPECTION: We have your vehicle inspected by a mechanic - a small investment pre-sale can make a massive difference in achieving the best price possible. A list of work required to present the vehicle will be provided, this could include mechanical, touch up, tyres and detailing. Autohaus will outsource any work at trade cost.
Cost incurred can be covered at time of sale.
PRICE AGREEMENT: Once a price has been agreed we present you with an approved Motor Traders Association consignment agreement. The contract outlines conditions and price as agreed and a period of time. We also make clear that you are in control of the sales process and nothing outside of the agreement will be done without your approval. As the owner, you may withdraw the car from market without incurring additional costs.
DETAILING: Professional detailers will perform a full interior detail and exterior buff and polish. This ensures we put our best foot forward with potential buyers. Detailing can increases your price by up to $500 – $1000 and most certainly makes the vehicle very attractive to buyers. Remember, though the vehicle is pre-owned it is new to the buyer. Additionally, your car will be washed and vacuumed daily.
PRESENTATION: Once the vehicle is prepared and display ready we photograph the car in our showroom.
We take and edit approximately 20+ photographs to display on online. Good photography not only presents the vehicle but also the different options and feature included to position the vehicle accurately in its price range.
