CCC Live Auctions
Hello Fellow Canadian (and Worldwide) Car Buffs.
Good news: The countdown is over, our auctions are live, we have a Canadian-only option in the collector vehicle auction world, Collector Car Canada.
Our bidding system is in place – we have a few fun, not-before-seen and disruptive-to-the-industry features designed to help listings sell, because no one likes a “Reserve Not Met” outcome. Take a look at our innovative bidding process on our How it Works page and let us know what you think! We started running our regular one-week auctions Wednesday, June 9 after having gone live Tuesday, June 1 with a very special and rare offering. You will note that kick-off followed Victoria Day by a week, a reflection of our Canadian roots, as well as of June being the unofficial start to the Canadian summer and hobby car season. We have even started attending car shows!
We offer collectibles, classics, customs, special interest, tuner, niche and vintage – to name a few. If you are thinking of selling and have a vehicle – or high-value, specialty/hard-to-find part – we are now accepting submissions for our carefully curated collection of auction offerings. Have a look at “Sellers”, below, where you will also find a ni¢e di$count on the listing fee for sellers. Featured external listings are also running – though our auction items are supplemented by a gallery of many more photos and there is more about the item being auctioned, less about the history of each marque. Updates go out via daily email which also keep everyone in the loop with the auction items and featured external listings. We have basic members, our basic members can comment and like others’ comments with their usernames; fully-registered members, who have submitted credit card information so that they are ready to bid; and zero membership fees.
Submit your listing details now to get your spot locked in – and your discount, of course. We’ll do the writing, design the listing page and be in touch about details to get you your best listing. To get a sense of the look of our listings, please see our What We’ve Seen page. By using paragraph form and lots of photos, we make the listings more engaging than a typical newspaper classified ad hinting at a few features. Consider that the What We’ve Seen write-ups are necessarily limited by the content of the original ads so keep this in mind when submitting your item, and include more photos, of better quality – we would like to feature in the neighbourhood of between 100 and 400 for each of our auction listings.
Register now for updates and to lock in the $100 discount on your first buyer’s premium, this a limited-time discount we are offering only to our first members. Do it now to ensure your preferred user name. (Think of the disappointment in finding your great idea for a personalized licence plate has already been scooped up by someone quicker on the draw.)
How It Works – Timeline of listing
Seller tip: Remain engaged through the process, especially during the 7 days of live auction time. Potential bidders have questions and can post them publicly on the comments section of the listing or directly to you through the “Contact Seller” button featured in every auction listing. Involved, responsive sellers give bidders peace of mind and more confidence to bid.
