The Secret is Revealed: How to Sell Your Car For A Whole Lot More

Triple Win: the secret is revealed

No drum roll, and no going to commercial break before we reveal the secret behind how to get more money when you sell your car.

The Secret Is

"Triple-win” pricing Alright, so what is triple-win pricing, you ask? Triple-win is a proven pricing strategy that is unique to retail consignment selling and based on the belief that the Seller, Buyer & Dealer (Consignment Pro) should all emerge from the sale of your vehicle as winners. The triple-win valuation process is both an art and a science and it always leads to the optimal selling price, or “sweet spot” to create a win for everyone

Although each trusted network Consignment Pro (dealership) uses different valuation tools and pricing models (they all have their favorites), and regardless of whether your Consignment Pro specializes in autos, classic cars, exotic cars, or vintage/antique cars, they all use a triple-win approach for determining the optimal retail price for your vehicle. The optimal price is where you the seller gets significantly more money than a dealer trade-in or instant cash offer (and in most cases more than a private sale), and your vehicle sells in a reasonable time.

How It Works

One of the key benefits of using retail vehicle consignment is "expertise." Your Consignment Pro knows their market and products - they eat, sleep and breathe selling your type of vehicle - and they have access to tools and retail market data that you don't. There is a very good chance they have sold one or more vehicles like yours in the past 30 days, so they know the best price and have the passion, motivation and resources to get it sold for you at the triple-win price.

When you take your vehicle to a trusted network Consignment Pro dealership, they will generally do the following:

  • Inspect & Evaluate your vehicle for overall condition and salability.
  • Appraise your vehicle using one or more valuation tools and similar local listings to determine your triple-win pricing "sweet spot." 
  • Consult with you about pricing.
  • Review possible value-added enhancements to net you the most money.

During your initial contact, ask your Consignment Pro for an estimate similar to the triple-win illustration below on your specific car, RV, or motorcycle:
