FAQ

HOW DO I CONSIGN MY CAR?

The first step in the Consignment process is completing an on-line registration and sending in photos. After we receive the Consignment Request, we will contact you to discuss where your vehicle would best fit in the event.

WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF GOING NO RESERVE?

No Reserve attracts serious bidders. A vehicle being sold at No Reserve indicates that it will be sold to the highest bidder and generates true auction block excitement, which typically equates to higher bids.

WHAT IS MY CAR WORTH?

GPK Auctions does not guarantee values or prices for particular vehicles. Neither GPK nor any agent of GPK can guarantee values or prices as a result of the auction process. We will work with you to determine an estimated auction value, but in any auction, the final price is ultimately determined by the Buyers.

WHAT DOES IT COST TO SELL MY CAR?

The Consignor is responsible for an entry fee as well as a Seller’s commission (see contracts for exact percentage per event). The entry fee is determined by the day of your Auction Lot.

DOES THE TITLE HAVE TO BE IN MY NAME TO CONSIGN A VEHICLE?

Yes, unless you are a Dealer.

HOW MANY PICTURES SHOULD I SUBMIT?

You can submit up to 12. GPK Auctions requires 5 photos; however the INVENTORY section of our website can hold up to 12. Please keep the following in mind when taking photos – DO: Clean car – take photos outside in good light – be aware of the background. DON’T take photos in a garage – DON’T place trophies in photo – DON’T have people in or around the car.

HOW DO I GET MY VEHICLE TO THE AUCTION SITE?

Your vehicle can be transported to the event or you can cruise on down yourself. GPK Auctions is proud to have McCollister's Transport available for all of your transportation needs.
*Transported vehicles will not be allowed in the building unless GPK Auctions has all or the required paperwork (including original title) prior to delivery.

IS THERE PARKING FOR MY TRAILER?

Yes, parking is available through the Atlantic City Transportation Center . Spaces are on a first-come first-serve basis. Spaces cannot be reserved. There is a fee for this service.

WHEN DO I NEED TO DELIVER MY CAR?

Vehicle Move-In starts the Thursday prior to the event, and finishes Friday the morning of the event. See confirmation paperwork for exact check-in times. Checking in early is recommended to avoid long lines and time constraints.

DO I HAVE TO BE THERE WHEN MY CAR ARRIVES?

No, a transporter can deliver your vehicle if your paperwork is complete and your original title has been received by GPK Auctions. However, if the paperwork isn’t complete, your car will then be held in the garage holding area until all required documents are received and your VIN number is verified.

DO I HAVE TO BE THERE WHEN MY CAR SELLS?

Yes, the Consignor or a representative must be with the vehicle on the auction block. After all, who knows your vehicle better than you? You should also be available to answer questions regarding your vehicle’s condition and history.

DO YOU HAVE ANYONE ON SITE THAT CAN DETAIL MY CAR?

Yes, GPK Auctions is proud to have ecoSHINE Mobile Detail available for all of your detailing needs.

CAN I COVER MY CAR?

Vehicles must be on display and not covered during published event hours.

CAN I BRING AND DISPLAY ITEMS WITH MY CAR?

Yes, we encourage such things as copies of documentation and awards to be displayed. However, keep in mind that you have limited space; therefore, be selective about the items you choose to display.

ONCE CHECKED INTO MY ASSIGNED LOCATION, CAN I MOVE MY VEHICLE?

Auction vehicles are only permitted to move when they are scheduled to cross the auction block. All other vehicles must remain in their assigned spaces at all times.

WHEN WILL MY CAR SELL ON THE BLOCK?

GPK Auctions cannot predict the exact time a vehicle will cross the auction block; each individual lot takes a different amount of time to sell. A GPK Auctions representative will be able to tell you what day your vehicle will sell, and an approximate time.

CAN I DRIVE MY CAR OVER THE AUCTION BLOCK?

No, vehicles will not start in the building. Due to restrictions set by the Fire Marshall, vehicles will be pushed at all times on the event floor.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER MY CAR GOES OVER THE AUCTION BLOCK?

When your car sells, you will park it back in the assigned space and go to the Settlement Office to sign your title. After applicable funds have been received from the buyer you will receive a call to pick up your check. If your car doesn’t sell on the block, it will remain on the floor where buyers can continue to bid throughout the duration of the show.
