How does car consignment work?
Following is a step by step guide of the process of consigning your vehicle:
What is the Market value of your vehicle?
F1 Autos will initiate the process of determining the value of your vehicle, this will be done through conducting an appraisal. Our team of professional vehicle engineers, sales representatives and dealers will have a thorough look at your vehicle’s interior and exterior, including mileage and engine. They will then assess the condition of the car and ask you a few questions to determine its history, finally, they will asses its marketability and present to you their evaluation of the car’s value.
Traditionally, this will be the value you will sell your car at but with car consignment , this value is the minimum price the experts believe they can get for your car, the expert sellers will always try to go beyond the estimated price and try to get in a few $100 extra for you.
Finding the buyer
Once the value of your vehicle has been determined, our experts will then market your vehicle to potential customers.

Selling at the right price
So, we’ve already evaluated how much the car is worth, now we’re getting offers for the car. Our consignment professionals know the market really well and will ensure that they obtain the highest possible value of your car but before we finalize the deal we will ask you if you agree with the offer. You also need to keep in mind that we will retain a small percentage of the selling price of the vehicle, this is a minor fee, we consider it a token for all the hard work we do to sell your car.
Our fees are usually 10-20% of the sale price of the car, please make sure you discuss the fees with our customer service representative beforehand.

The biggest advantage of car consignment is security, for both buyer and seller. Private selling means having random people visit your house and asking if they could take your car for a test drive, how could you trust the person testing your car or how can you trust a person who places an advert in the newspaper to visit their house and return safe? These are the insecurities that you can forgo when it comes to car consignment. Another advantage is that the car dealer will place the price of the car on the bumper and you can negotiate if you wish, but most people will believe it is a fixed price.
Buyers can obtain amazing financing deals through professional car sellers, which isn’t going to happen through private car sales. F1 Autos requires the consignor to pay a 90 day warranty for the vehicle in order to give the buyer a sense of security and some protection, the vehicle also goes through a security inspection to ensure that there are no major problems with the car and the consigned vehicle won’t have to go back and forth with repairs and checks.
