How to sell

Here’s a quick overview of the selling process. Hopefully you’ll notice we do most of the work so you don’t have to.

  • You submit a vehicle

    Old classics, modern classics and even future classics, all are all treated equally here; just like people. Send us your vehicle’s info and a few photographs and we’ll get back to you within 48 hours. There’s no waiting weeks or months for a reply.

  • We draft your listing

    Once pre-approved, we assign you with a ShiftGate Auction Specialist that will write and prepare your listing with the additional information and photos that you provide. You review and make changes, we fix it. Easy right?

  • We schedule it

    We’ll work with you to set a date for your auction to go live. FYI: auctions run on Mondays, Fridays, as well as Sundays.

  • We push the listing live!​

    Enjoy the process and the community involvement. We encourage you to be active in the process by answering buyer questions and providing more details. Statistically, active sellers get more interest on their listing, which in return leads to more bids and a higher final sale price.

2016 Porsche 911R

ShiftGate set up a video conference, worked with me to develop marketing materials, and then wrote and published articles of my listing where the right buyers could see it. ShiftGate actually cared about me and my listing experience. Imagine that.


1966 Mercedes-Benz 230SL

Friends suggested other online auction sites. But they seemed too unfocused. So, I reached out to ShiftGate. I was so surprised by the quick reply, industry knowledge and passion. They made the entire experience easy. And I sold my car for the price I wanted!


2001 BMW M5

Working with ShiftGate to sell my car has been a great experience. The submission process was easy & interactions with their curator have been fantastic. Love how they are representing my car and they are always available when I reach out. Highly recommended.
