    Default Has anyone purchased from Bring A Trailer?

    Curious if anyone has bid/won a vechicle from bringatrailer? Found something I've been wanting for a while now and I want to possibly bid on it, just not sure how the whole process works. Car is in the US so with getting it here, plus the OoC inspection etc it may not be worth it but I haven't had much luck in Canada.

    TIA

    I have a few friends that have purchased from there and one that has sold a vehicle into the USA.

    For the ones that purchased, it was fairly straight forward and really no different than purchasing a car out of the USA. They paid, arranged shipping , paid duty/taxes, did the out of country inspection and they were good to go. For what it's worth, I find the cars on BAT sell for a premium over what they would typically sell for in a standard private car sale. I'm seeing some crazy high prices for E36 M3's with high mileage and not the greatest of shape.

    Subbed - I'm going to try moving a classic audi on BaT after seeing the astronomical prices they go for.

    Cars have to be in pretty immaculate condition to be allowed to post on BaT no?

    I read their daily email every day, was following a few astons in the fall before my wife spent my car money on a house lol

    I wonder what the selling process is as well. Seem like you can get drug money for certain types of cars on there, would be useful if i ever decide to sell the NSX.

    I saw that. It is getting impossible to find a good example and no one wants to pay 5k for one, let alone 50k. I cant see a regular joe buying it for that much.

    Regular joes aren’t buying 20 year old Honda’s for triple their original msrp, correct. Lol

    Nope, but they also don’t accept any old shitbox. There’s lots of high mile “driver” cars that go through there, just look at the s2000 history.

    Apparently one way that drastically improves your chances of getting your car accepted for a listing there is to go no reserve. They’re a bit more discerning if you want to put a reserve on your auction. Or so I hear.

    Yea some of the no mile units go crazy. There was a 2000 (I think) plain old Ram 1500 with under 1000miles that brought around 23k USD. Seen a few Honda's go for crack money as well.

    Winning bidder probably lost his virginity in the back of one of these and wanted to recreate it but with newer seats and an older woman.

    So you register for the site then have to apply to sell in auction? I'm assuming they only auction a certain amount per week too?

    I did see Travis Barker sell a car or two on here as well. I'm personally waiting for Jon Voight's used car to come up for auction.

    Bump. @Twin_Cam_Turbo Did you end up getting the car?

    Curious about the site as there's definitely some things that catch the eye on there. Just curious how it would work to actually finalize the deal and pickup the car being out of country.

    Transfer money. Hire transport. Meet transport truck @ border (Sweetgrass, Montana). Maybe wait to transport car if possible until border restrictions are lifted.
