Why Buy From Gateway Classic Cars

Would you rather buy your dream car at a Classic Car Auction in a 3-minute frenzy with numbers being run up by real and pseudo buyers competing against you?

Or would you rather make that purchase thoughtfully and with due diligence, being well informed about the car and its value?

You know the answer.

  • Buying at an auction is a rushed 3-minute frenzied affair with everyone going crazy to get more than what a classic or exotic is worth. You don't get enough information to really know what you are buying. Is it truly authentic? Are the numbers matching? Is there a professional 3rd party inspection opportunity available? What about test drives? Can you get financing assistance? How about shipping help? The answer to all of these questions is: NO
  • At an auction, you are limited to the vehicles for sale for that event.
  • Auctions will not take your trade if you have one. We will.
  • At auctions, you are required to remove your vehicle immediately after the event. Transport companies charge a premium at these events.
  • Auction houses do not assist with tax, title or registration paperwork. In some states, special forms are need to be filed for classic vehicles. We can assist with those.

After comparing side by side the pros and cons of Auctions, as a BUYER, you will realize that purchasing your dream car from Gateway Classic Cars is a far better option. We have a pleasant staff and excellent customer service. The experience will keep bringing you back to us.
