HOW TO CONSIGN TO AN RM SOTHEBY'S AUCTION


STEP ONE

CONTACT A SPECIALIST

RM Sotheby's dedicated team of Car Specialists is the best in the industry. Located around the world, we offer services in a number of different languages. Each specialist is fully immersed in the collector car hobby and is equipped with the experience, knowledge, and passion needed to successfully market your automobile to an international network of buyers.

STEP TWO

DISCUSS THE SPECIFICS

The discussion with a Car Specialist will include:

  • The specifics of your automobile in order to arrive at a reasonable market value and, should you choose, a reserve price;
  • What type of auction (as we have many live or online) will be the best fit for you and your automobile(s); and
  • The information you will need to provide us with to properly market your automobile(s). This usually includes a detailed description of the car’s condition, provenance, racing and/or award history, and a briefing on any restorations or modifications the car has undergone.

STEP THREE

COMPLETE A CONSIGNMENT PACKAGE

Before you sell with RM Sotheby's, you must sign a sellers' agreement. All sales with RM Sotheby's are subject to our terms and conditions. Your Car Specialist and/or our Administration team can answer any questions regarding these conditions. Please note that a clear, transferable title must be provided at this time.

STEP FOUR

ACCESS WORLD-CLASS MARKETING

Once you have remitted your entry fee, our Cataloguing department will contact you to discuss the research and photography arrangements for your automobile(s). RM's industry-leading cataloguing department showcases your consignments to their fullest potential with detailed, extensively researched descriptions and beautiful photography.

STEP FIVE

EXPERIENCE THE RESULTS!

As a consignor, your presence at the live auction is both encouraged and welcomed, and you will be provided with complimentary admission and bidder registration at the event. We also offer preferred rates at hotels we share with our clients. If an online-only auction is a perfect fit for your automobile(s), watch the bidding action on rmsothebys.com from the comfort of your home. Once the auction is over, and a successful bidder has purchased your automobile(s), you will receive a check or wire transfer within 20 business days of receipt of payment from the buyer.
