The first step in the Consignment process is filling out a Preliminary Consignment Request Form complete with photos and a copy of your title, front and back.
After we have received the Consignment Request, we will contact you with more information on pricing, estimated value and availability at upcoming auctions.
No Reserve attracts serious bidders. A vehicle being sold at No Reserve indicates that it will be sold to the highest bidder and generates true auction block excitement, which typically equates to higher bids.
Barrett-Jackson does not guarantee values or prices for particular vehicles. Barrett-Jackson nor any agent of Barrett-Jackson can guarantee values or prices as a result of the auction process. We will work with you to determine an estimated auction value, but in a No Reserve auction, the final price is ultimately determined by the Bidders.
To sell a vehicle at Barrett-Jackson, the Consignor is responsible for an entry fee as well as a Seller's commission of 8% of the hammer price for No Reserve consignments or 10% of the hammer price for Reserve consignments. The entry fee is determined by day and time of your Lot entry and includes tent space. Payment of fees without a signed contract does not constitute a consignment agreement.

Barrett-Jackson has created a Property Room to secure and collect all of the documentation and special items that go with each auction vehicle. When a vehicle is checked in to the auction site, a Barrett-Jackson representative will remove all of the property from the vehicle and secure it for the new owner. That is why copies of your important documents are helpful to showcase the provenance of a vehicle while on display at the event.

Barrett-Jackson cannot predict the exact time my vehicle will cross the auction block. Each individual Lot takes a different amount of time to sell.
