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!


Sell Your BMW

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.
