Tom Hodges Auto Sales accepts consignment vehicles for a period of no less than 30 days, exceptions may be arranged with special circumstances, just ask.
Our consignment program is free. We don’t make any money until your car sells, this enables us to focus on selling your car just as if it were one of ours, and we don’t make any money unless you do!
We set up an upfront cost and price with you for our services. You don’t have to worry about our fee changing or your vehicle selling for a different amount unless the vehicle is revaluated with you and new terms are agreed upon.
We agree to maintain and secure your vehicle while it is on our lot at our expense, this includes keeping the vehicle clean and show ready. If there are any repairs that need to be completed on your vehicle in order to pass Maryland State Inspection and be sold on our lot we will offer you our pricing and our dealership rates to having the work completed. No work will ever be completed without your consent and full disclosure of the cost.
We will aggressively market your vehicle by displaying it in a premium position on our lot. From this position your vehicle will get the maximum amount of exposure our great dealership location can offer. We will work hard to ensure that your vehicle is listed on all the premium car buying websites including cars.com autotrader.com craigslist and our own dealership website.
Our dealership offers a secure place for your vehicle that is monitored 24 hours a day. The safety of your vehicle will always be a top priority while it is sitting on our lot, you will not have to worry about damage or theft.
We will only offer your vehicle for test drives to serious qualified buyers only. These drivers will be screened as if they were going to test drive one of our own vehicles.
We make it easy to sell your vehicle; we remove the hassle, the frustration, ineffective and wasted advertising expenses, along with the time consuming distraction associated with selling your car yourself. Just think.. No irritating, untimely, and bothersome phone calls from unqualified semi-serious buyers or unknown strangers visiting your residence. We can offer trade in assistance, financing and other tools that you cannot offer on your own, opening up a wide variety of new customers that you yourself would not have had access too.
We take great pride in our consignment program and being able to offer our customer a better way to not only buy cars, but sell their own vehicles.
