How to Consign

Step 1: Contact an RM Car Specialist
RM Sotheby's dedicated team of Car Specialists is the best in the industry. Located around the world, we offer services in a number of different languages. Each specialist is fully immersed in the collector car hobby with the passion, knowledge, and experience needed to successfully market your automobile to an international network of buyers.
Step 2: Talk about the Specifics
The discussion with a Car Specialist will include:
  • The specifics of your car in order to arrive at a reasonable market value and, should you choose, a reserve price;
  • What auction venue (as we have many) will be the best fit for you and your automobile(s); and
  • The information you will need to provide us with to properly market your automobile(s). This usually includes a detailed description of the car´s conditions, provenance, racing and/or award history, and a briefing on any restoration or modification the car has undergone.
Step 3: Complete a Consignment Package

Before you sell with RM Sotheby's you must sign a seller´s agreement. All sales with RM Sotheby's are subject to our terms and conditions. Your Car Specialist and/or our Admin team can answer any questions regarding these conditions. Please note that a clear, transferable title must be provided at this time.

Step 4: World-Class Marketing
Once you have remitted your entry fee, our Cataloguing Department will contact you to discuss the research and photography arrangements for your automobile(s). RM´s industry-leading catalogues are detailed, extensively researched, and beautifully photographed in order to showcase your consignments to their fullest potential.
Step 5: Experience the Results!
As a consignor, your presence at the sale is encouraged and welcomed, and you will be provided with complimentary admission and bidder registration at the event. We also offer preferred rates at hotels that we share with our clients. Once the auction is over and a successful bidder has purchased your automobile(s), you will receive a check or wire transfer within 20 business days of receipt of payment from the buyer.


We look forward to establishing a long-lasting relationship with you and sharing our passion for this exciting hobby.
