National network of trusted auction preparation service providers delivers increased convenience and expertise to BaT sellers
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., (Jan. 18, 2023) – Automotive auction platform and enthusiast community Bring a Trailer (BaT) today announces its new Local Partners program, a growing national network of independent auction preparation service providers. The program was developed to increase convenience and support for sellers seeking to enhance the preparation and presentation of their vehicles to help maximize the performance of their auction listings on the BaT platform.
Sellers can work with partners in areas that help the vehicle present well, such as detailing, photography, videography, maintenance, interior/exterior refurbishment, repairs and more. Many BaT Local Partners also offer additional services, including storage and local transportation.
“One of the key factors in the success of the Bring a Trailer community has always been the high level of detail and transparency of the auction listings,” said Randy Nonnenberg, co-founder and president of Bring a Trailer. “Vehicles that are prepared, photographed and presented well are most likely to yield successful auction results. The Local Partners program was created in direct response to customer requests for additional resources to aid in that process.”
Each BaT Local Partner is carefully vetted to ensure the quality service associated with the Bring a Trailer auction experience. The Local Partners Program launches with nearly a dozen partners spanning multiple states across the country, including Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, New York, Ohio, Oregon, South Carolina, Texas and Washington, with more to come.
Sellers interested in taking advantage of BaT Local Partner services can visit the Local Partners program page on Bringatrailer.com for information and to search for a local provider. Each partner features a dedicated landing page outlining their services, contact information and other details. Working with a Local Partner does not impact BaT acceptance or auction fees, nor does BaT receive referral fees or any other compensation from Local Partners.
