Tips & Tricks

Regardless of your photography choice, we recommend doing the following to prepare your car for its shoot:

  • Wash and detail your car inside and out. Your attention to detail will show in the pictures, and will be appreciated by potential bidders!
  • Empty your cup holders, center console, trunk, etc, so that buyers can focus on the pictures.
  • If you have service records or other documents, please include pictures of those in the listing! Make sure that you cover up any personal information such as names, phone numbers, addresses, emails, etc (a sticky note works really well for this)!

Walkaround Videos

We strongly recommend shooting a couple of short videos - usually showing a walkaround of the car and an engine start-up - to give bidders extra confidence!

Try to keep the video simple: we recommend using your phone, held horizontally in landscape-orientation! You can then simply upload the video to YouTube or Vimeo and send your auction specialist a link - we’ll take care of the rest!
