Fast Sales Consignment vehicles at Jim Hoff’s Vehicle Locating Service are aggressively marketed to sell quickly and for the best retail value. Because we address any cosmetic or mechanical issues up-front, most of our vehicles sell within 30 days!

Overcome Objections or Complaints We deal with all the concerns and/or complaints about any problems potential buyers might find with your vehicle. Consumers are often cautious about buying an expensive item such as a car from a private seller and if you don’t have the expertise to mitigate their concerns, you may lose the sale. We are sales professionals with a great deal of experience in handling objections.

Negotiations Our professional staff will negotiate the price with the potential buyer. Everybody wants to get the best deal possible and if you aren’t able to negotiate a price that is reasonable for both parties, you may leave money on the table or potentially not make the sale.

Pre-Sale Inspections Many buyers will want to have the vehicle inspected by a mechanic. This is time consuming and comes with no guarantee of a sale. We will assist in the process so that it doesn’t take any of your valuable time.

Legal Paperwork After closing the sale, we handle all the DMV, insurance and loan paperwork. As a private seller, you may not know how to release yourself from liability. If not done correctly, and the buyer feels the car was not represented accurately, they may have legal claim to a refund! Or what if the buyer gets in an accident during the time of transaction? If you haven’t processed the paperwork properly you can be held responsible for the buyer’s negligence. We take care of all legal and financial paperwork, releasing you from all liability immediately upon sale and get your money to you as quickly as possible.

Minimize Risk You will have to advertise your vehicle and make appointments with potential buyers. Advertising can be expensive and there is no guarantee the potential buyer will show up. Even if they do, you have no way of pre-screening potential buyers and you are forced to invite complete strangers to your home. This is a potential safety risk for you and your family. We advertise your vehicle, schedule appointments and deal with all potential buyers.

Protect Yourself from Scams Market risk has never been higher and we’ve all heard the stories of sellers finding themselves being stuck with bad checks, counterfeit cashier’s checks, or even having their vehicle stolen! Don’t put yourself in this position, protect yourself.
