Sell Your Adapted Vehicle on Consignment

Selling on consignment--whether it's your gently used designer clothing, a piece of expensive furniture, or even the wheelchair accessible van you no longer require--is a trending way to go for people who don't have the time or inclination to sell pricey property still in good condition that can be of use to someone else.

How Consignment Works

Here's how consignment sales typically work: Individuals bring their property to a consignment store or company that specializes in the sale of clothing, furniture, vehicles, or whatever the individual is interested in selling. When the item is sold, the final sale price of price-tagthe item is shared between the property owner, who disposes of the unwanted item and makes some money without hassle, and the consignment shop or company, which doesn't have to pay up front for merchandise and makes money to pay for business expenses.

As you know, there isn't an adapted-vehicle dealership on every corner, much less an adapted-vehicle consignment shop, but there's still a way to sell handicap van on consignment even if you live in a remote area. Look for an online mobility van dealership that has a consignment program for your convenience.

Naturally, an online dealer operates a little differently from local consignment dealers. Instead of your having to bring your vehicle to the consigning company for inspection before an agreement is reached, you simply have to fill out a form to sell your handicap van online describing your vehicle in detail--make, model, model year, mileage, vehicle condition, type of modification (professionally modifications only), etc. You'll need a current registration and active, full-coverage insurance throughout the consignment.

The Form-ula!

It's in your best interest to complete the form as accurately as possible to avoid rejection when you deliver the van to the consignment company or the van is picked up by the consignment company (typically free of charge), which may be a great distance from your location. If your vehicle is misrepresented on the form, or if you cancel the consignment, you'll be charged a pick-up fee. The consignors will have a trained evaluator qualify your vehicle before accepting it or placing it on a trailer and hauling it to their facility. The evaluator may accept a vehicle even if it needs minor repairs. At this point, you maintain possession of the title.

When your vehicle arrives at the facility, the company's mobility professionals will make all necessary repairs. You and the company will agree upon the cash amount guaranteed to you if and when the vehicle sells. A mobility consultant will write effective ad copy for the vehicle, which includes the consignor's price mark-up, and post it among their other handicap-accessible vehicles for sale to give it maximum prominence on their web site. Your vehicle will be listed on their site until it sells or you send a written request for removal.

Sold!

As with most used vehicles, the buyers may negotiate a price for your van, and the consignor's commission is the amount that remains after you're paid your guaranteed amount. Ultimately, you receive a check and sign over the title to the new owner.

If, at some point, you cancel the consignment, you'll be financially responsible any reconditioning performed on the vehicle, as well as a return delivery fee if you're unable to pick up the van from the consignment company.

Selling an accessible vehicle on consignment might not be for everyone, but it's a fine option for those who want as little hassle as possible--or you can sell your used handicap vehicle directly to AMS Vans for a great price, free nationwide pick-up, and customer care you can count on! It's beyond easy!
