How do you list in the collectible car world?

17 Jan, 2024 Classic Cars

As House of Assets approaches launch, it’s time to start preparing our assets to go live! We appreciate how hard it can be parting ways with your once-loved tangible assets, so House of Assets want to make this process easier using our trusted services. Typically, a collectable car requires greater preparation before listing compared to our other assets of art, fine wine, and vintage whisky. So, with the right preparation, House of Assets can maximise your chances of finding the perfect buyer by teaching you how to get your classic car ready to list online with us. 

1. For any collectable cars for sale, first, it is imperative that you gather all relevant documentation. For example, any maintenance records or historical documents that can add value to your listing. Providing this information on our page instils confidence in potential buyers, with the potential to streamline the transaction process. 

2. Conduct a thorough inspection of your vintage car for sale and identify any mechanical or cosmetic damages. When listing with House of Assets, you must be completely transparent in the condition of your vehicle; otherwise, the liability falls on you as the seller. Addressing these beforehand can enhance your vehicle’s overall appeal by providing honesty to potential buyers. 

3. Give your car a well-deserved groom to stand out in the collectable car world. A clean interior and exterior, with a polished gleam, can make your car look online ‘showroom’ ready, making a lasting impression on buyers browsing our online listings. 

4. At House of Assets, it’s up to the seller to set the reserve price, so it will be worthwhile to research the current market value and even get a professional valuation so you can be set on your competitive price. Make sure to factor your price based on the vehicle’s condition, rarity, and any unique features it may possess. 

5. Craft a detailed and compelling listing that highlights your collectable car’s unique features and history. Include key information such as the make, model, year, mileage, and any noteworthy modifications. Sell your assets with words, and let potential buyers fall in love with your car for the same reason you loved it!

6. When listing with House of Assets, make sure you provide professional photography of your collectable car. Quality photographs taken in good lighting can further showcase the beauty of your collectable car, pulling your asset out of the online collectable car market. Providing a range of angles of the car can also be beneficial to allow the potential buyers a fully comprehensive view of your vehicle and get a proper look and feel of what they could be investing in. If this seems like too much stress, House of Assets can make it easy for you; by using our additional photography services, we can make your asset look top-notch! 

7. Once you have listed your car with House of Assets and you are awaiting the sale, it is important that you maintain an appropriate collectable car storage strategy. Any changes to the car, albeit from a crash to a scratch, from the point of listing to being sold, should be reported to the House of Assets. Then, our team can ensure all information on the vehicle’s description has been updated for the buyer’s discretion.

Listing your collectable cars can seem tiresome, and the selling journey is usually even harder. Luckily, when listing with House of Assets, we deal with the hard part, and we’re even helping you prepare to list! So, by following these steps we’ve laid out for you, we have made your life easier. 

If you have any further queries about listing with us, please get in touch with House of Assets.
