To complement our Sales and Locating services, Buxton Motorsports, Inc.
will also gladly receive your
sports or luxury automobile on consignment. We are always looking
to represent in our inventory, and a Consignment allows our clients
relief from the
hassles of advertising their vehicles, answering late night telephone
inquiries, e-mailing pictures to prospective buyers and allowing
to interrupt their evenings and weekends with test drives and “tire
kicking” sessions. Our service also takes the financial risk
out of the sales process. When we handle the sale of your vehicle
don’t have to worry about a personal check bouncing, receiving a forged
cashiers check, having a money wire reversed, filling out titles and
other documents incorrectly (resulting in frustrations with the
of Motor Vehicles), or being subject to a lawsuit from a less than
honest buyer for an implied or verbal warranty claim. Our
services allow you to receive top dollar for your vehicle with none of
the hassle of the retail sales process.

sell 99% of our consigned
vehicles, and most of the time about 50% of our inventory is comprised

confirmed sales and not wishful asking prices on web sites or in
various publications. Asking prices do not set the market!
2. If your car doesn't sell in the first
month, and you really want to turn it into money, be prepared to drop
the price about 5% every two or three weeks until it sells. Keeping an

note that BMI is not interested in nor will we broker vehicles with
odometer discrepancies, salvage and/or rebuilt titles, or any vehicles
with any such tainted histories. In order to begin the process, a

"Where will my
vehicle be advertised and marketed?"
BMI spares no expense to ensure that all of our inventory is being
advertised in the right places. Aside from our home page, which
is already a highly visited website, we advertise our entire
inventory on over 20 major third-party sites. BMI also
participates in e-mail, newspapers and other print ad campaigns.
"How do I get my
vehicle to your facility?"
In the event that the vehicle is not local to BMI, we have an extensive
network of professional car transporters at our disposal. We will
work with your schedule to transport your vehicle
safely and efficiently to our facility.
"Do I need to have
my title-in-hand to consign my car?"
If a vehicle currently has a lien from a bank or financial institution
we can still consign that vehicle. When the vehicle is sold the
payoff is made to the appropriate lien holder and the remainder is paid
to the Owner / Consignee. To make the sales process more efficient we do
require keeping a copy of your title in our possession (any buyers
obtaining financing will need to present a copy of the title to their
lender in order to complete their pre-approval process). Should
you prefer to leave your title with us it will be stored in our
fireproof safe along with the titles to all of our own inventory.

such as service records, window sticker, documents of restoration and /
or ownership history of the car.
