The stop of the yr is always an awesome time to head vehicle buying, as sellers roll out discounts and give to clear out current stock that allows you to be a yr antique within the model or when the new 12 months kicks in. Traditionally, there have always been giving and discounts on -wheelers, ranging from cash discounts, loose coverage and add-ons thrown in with every purchase. This yr even though, no matter a no longer so exciting festive season in phrases of sales, two-wheeler dealerships do not seem to be very bullish on clearing out stock, or on a high-quality consumer sentiment inside the marketplace. Although a few dealers are rolling out some offers, and positive festive season gives have been prolonged until the quiet of the yr, there aren’t too many interesting discounts, to be able to suggest that sales may not be so interesting in the end, aside from a few brands and fashions. I have never actually bought or sold a classic motorcycle at a classic motorcycle auction. There are numerous, well-known auction houses in the UK and abroad that sell art, classic cars, and classic motorcycles. In the heady days before the 2008 crash, it seemed that they could sell anything at ever-increasing prices. It seemed that everyone was tripping over themselves to throw ever increasing bundles of cash at them to buy anything with the word classic in the catalog description.
However, since the crash, they seemed to have changed their strategy, and it’s not just me who has had this experience. Many of my clients have made exactly the same complaint and asked me to market their machines. Auction houses charge to put your machine in the catalog, they often charge admission to the sale and they typically charge sellers 15% and the buyer 20% all plus VAT. At those rates, they are really quite indifferent to what they achieve as a final sale price.
I had two beautiful classic Hondas, which one such auction house decided to market. They came, they saw the machines, they agreed to the stunning condition and how original both machines were. After much debate, we settled on a reserve price of £9,000 for one Honda + their seller’s fee and £8500 for the other + their seller’s fee. Luckily, I was late entering the machines and they had not cashed my cheque for several hundred pounds to put my machines in their catalog. Just a week before the sale the auction house phoned me and said that I had to lower my reserve price to £4,000 and £5,000 for the bikes or remove them from the sale.
