Motor Trends of Houston Vehicle Consignment
You've got a car you don't need anymore, maybe to buy that sweet new ride you've had your eye on, or to put some cash away for a rainy day. All that stands in the way? The painful process of selling it yourself. By the time you think about detailing, photos, online listings, answering questions from lookie-loos, worrying about your safety, and wondering if your buyer will come through with the payment, you might wonder if you're better off just walking away.
Take heart! Motor Trends of Houston is here to help. Our vehicle consignment sales process brings sellers more money with less hassle, and offers buyers great prices and a trusted product. Why choose vehicle consignment?
It's simple: We do the work, and you get the proceeds. Our vehicle consignment process handles:
- Marketing your car: We do the reconditioning, photos, marketing and selling. Your car will be advertised on all major websites, including CarFax, AutoTrader, CarGurus and more. Our expert and professional team has trued-and-tried experience in selling and buying vehicles.
- Getting you more money: With our small fee, your net check is slightly below retail, which gets you more money than 'trade-in.' We have fast financing that can get a buyer financed within minutes through our partner banks, and we accept all major credit cards. More options mean a better sale for you.
- Peace of mind and security: You don't have to worry about fake cashier's checks or scams. We take that risk, and you are protected. And no strangers will come to your home or bother you all day with calls.
- Giving buyers options: We accept trade-ins. And we ship our vehicles worldwide and nationally, and free throughout Texas, which attracts a larger audience to view our inventory (a.k.a. your vehicle).
- All the logistics: You retain ownership and title until we sell your vehicle. We handle all tax, title, and license requirements for the buyer.
