On September 9, a new classic car auction website was launched. It is AutoHunter.com and it was developed by Collector Car Network, the company that brought us ClassicCars.com, the top collector marketplace in the world.
AutoHunter.com differs from ClassicCars.com by auctioning off classic cars and trucks rather that just setting a firm selling price. Another thing that sets AutoHunter apart from other online auctions is that it will provide assurances that no other auction house offers. One such guarantee protects all winning bids under AutoHunter’s exclusive Buyer Protection Program, which covers losses that could result from unlikely scenarios of seller misrepresentation.
“AutoHunter was born from the overwhelming desire for a reliable online auction platform backed by a trusted team of automotive experts and was a natural extension of our services,” said Roger Falcione, CEO of the Collector Car Network. “With the experience, data, and network of experts, we are confidently offering a new kind of online auction experience the collector car industry deserves.”
The process of getting your vehicle one the auction website seems pretty straight forward. It starts with a seller submitting their vehicles for approval. Once approved, the seller is assigned a personal account representative to help them through the entire process.
The vehicle is put up for auction for 7-14 days with an optional reserve price and is sold to the highest bidder as long as the reserve is met. If it does not sell in 7-14 days, it is then listed on ClassicCars.com with a list price.
Buying a classic car or truck is even easier. All you need to do is create an account using a credit card you will bid with and begin bidding on vehicles for sale. Your bids are binding, so AutoHunter strongly encourages everyone to do their homework before placing any bids. The highest bidder is then introduced to the seller to finalize the deal.
