You never quite know how things will go when you submit a car for auction consideration to Bringatrailer.com
BaT has helped change the way people buy and sell collector and enthusiast cars over the past several years and things were kicked into high gear with the sale of the company in 2020 and the global COVID-19 Pandemic.
Tobin Motor Works chose to offer this 1992 Mercedes 500 E for sale on BaT without reserve for a few different reasons.
- Good cars never ‘fall through the cracks’ on BaT. That’s to say… if you bring a good car, it will be seen, talked about and eventually, bid upon.
- It’s too easy to ‘under-price’ a car these days when selling it. BaT has sufficient eyes on it that, with some models, it really IS the market.
- BaT reaches ‘new to the market’ enthusiasts who don’t follow the traditional buying habits of seasoned collectors and ‘car guys.’ A lot of first time collector car buyers feel comfortable with the BaT platform.
