Frequently Asked Questions
How long will it take to sell my car?
Most cars sell within 30-45 days.
Can you help me determine what my car is worth?
Definitely! We do this every day, and our friendly staff will take into account all aspects of your vehicle and the current market to help determine the best price to list your car at, what you can expect to sell the car for, and the best way to get the car to market and sell it for as much money and as quickly as possible. We have an online vehicle appraisal tool that compares the market price along with current availability of similar cars. We combine that with our own industry knowledge to help you reach a fair market value for your car. At the end of the day we want to find the right price to move the car that satisfies your desired sale price.
Can you take care of getting my car detailed or serviced?
Yes. Cats Exotics can handle any and all reconditioning work your vehicle may need ranging from service work to maintenance, to interior/exterior detailing and beyond. Once we have your car at our location, we will take care of all the necessary items and again there are no out of pocket expenses for you and of course everything is approved by you, the owner, prior to any work being performed.
What if I have a bank loan?
No problem at all. We will handle the entire process from pay-off to transferring title for you. Once the car sells, we take care of everything and cut you a check for the difference.
What if my car is leased?
Of course! We can handle that whole process for you and do our best to get you top dollar for your car no matter the financial situation you are in.
Can you accept trade-ins on my car even if it is on consignment?
Yes! We treat every car at Cats Exotics the same, regardless of if we own it or it is on consignment. Many people like to utilize our trade in program, and your car will get to take advantage of the full benefits of being a car in our inventory.
Can a consignment car be financed by a potential new buyer?
Definitely. In fact, this is one of the number one reasons to list your car on consignment with Cats Exotics. We offer a wide range of financing options through a number of different financial institutions and consignment cars have much better chance of selling through a dealer like us than a private buyer for that reason alone.
What does Cats Exotics offer that I couldn't just do on my own?
For one, we offer peace of mind to the buyer that they are buying from one of the most reputable dealers in the business. Secondly, dealership sales usually command a higher sale price because of that peace of mind over a private sale. Also, all consignment cars go on our website which totals thousands of unique visitors each day in addition to dozens of other websites such as Cars.com, duPontRegistry.com, ClassicCars.com, Autotrader.com, eBay, and JamesList. Our Facebook page also boasts over 100,000 fans, something NO OTHER DEALERSHIP is even close to touching us on.
Last but not least, we simply have the best multimedia in the industry. Over 60 professional photos shot in our state of the art studio, complete vin and engine decoding photos and explanations, comprehensive descriptions to get rid of the guessing game, full HD video of each car, and our 75 Point Used Vehicle Inspection all take the guessing game out of making a purchase for potential buyers. This means your car gets sold more quickly and for more money.
Why would I pay you to sell my car when I can just sell it on my own in my free time?
First of all, do you really have any free time? We are experts at what we do and have the ability and tools at our disposal to not only sell your car more quickly and for a higher price, but we are here to take the headache out of your hands. We do all the legwork and simply bring you reasonable offers as they come in. Your only job is to say yes or no to those offers and then collect a check at the end. Simple enough!
Do I need an appointment?
Not at all. An appointment is preferred, as it ensures you the quickest service, but we are here Monday through Saturday to suit your needs. Stop in anytime, or give us a call at 425-787-6200
How long does it take to set up selling my car on Consignment with Cats Exotics?
Generally we can have you in and out the door in under an hour. We can even set up everything digitally (via email or fax) and then have the car picked up at your residence (or wherever you store it) so that you don't have to even lift a finger!
I don't have the time to wait, will you just buy my car outright?
Certainly! We are always looking to buy high-end exotic, classic, collector, luxury and unique cars! Many customers just prefer to use the consignment process due to the higher sales figures they generally see. If you would rather just sell it outright to us, let us know and we can get that process started just as easily.
Can you help me sell my car at auction?
Yes! Cats Exotics specializes in auction consignments from all the big auction houses including Barrett-Jackson, RM, Russo & Steele, and Mecum just to name a few. We handle the entire process from start to finish including submittal, shipping, and marketing the car at the auction. Every car and auction is different, and we specialize in the right options for you and your car. You also get to take advantage of our long standing relationships with the auction houses ensuring your car gets the best lot time for the best price and the lowest seller's fees. And as always, NO UPFRONT COSTS.
Where do you advertise your cars for sale?
We advertise your car in a number of places. Of course our Showroom floor, our website which has thousands of unique visitors daily, Facebook.com where we have over 100,000 fans, Dupont Registry, eBay, Cars.com, ClassicCars.com, James List, Autotrader and many other websites and automotive car forums.
Do I have to come to the dealership if my car sells?
No, we can handle absolutely all the paperwork sight unseen. Many of our sales are sight unseen so we are very comfortable with this process and overall it takes minimal time from you as the seller.
Do you allow test drives?
Because the vehicle is still your property we do not allow test drives of consigned vehicles, unless you explicitly give us consent to do otherwise. Ultimately it is your car and your sale, and we want you to be comfortable with the entire process.
