August Global is a pioneering vehicle consignment program offered by August Motorcars, specifically designed for exotic and luxury car owners looking to sell their vehicles in the most effective way possible.

Sellers get all of the same benefits as other consignees that sell their vehicle through August Motorcars – without the need for the vehicle to be physically present at our dealership.

Owners looking to sell their vehicles can submit their vehicle here to initiate the consignment process.

Once the vehicle is reviewed and approved, our team will reach out to discuss the vehicle in detail and identify a fair selling price that is agreed upon by both parties.

Once all vehicle details and selling price are confirmed, we will coordinate a professional photoshoot on your behalf and create a comprehensive listing for the vehicle outlining all of its details and history for prospective buyers.

We then market the vehicle through our website, extensive social media reach, and third-party online marketplaces. You can find more details about the process here.

Our August Global network is comprised of many talented photographers across Canada and beyond.

Depending on where your vehicle is located, we will contact a photographer local to you and coordinate a day, time, and location for the photoshoot to take place.

We vet all of our photographers to ensure quality is consistent with what you have come to expect from the vehicles listed with August Motorcars!

Sellers are also welcome to request video content of vehicles which can be discussed throughout communication with our team. Video content can be a very effective way to market the vehicle through Instagram reels, Youtube, Facebook, etc.

As the name suggests, we’re aiming to make this selling platform available to sellers around the globe.

To start, our focus is on serving clients across Canada. However, we have plans to expand into the United States and eventually overseas markets in the near future.

If you have a special vehicle that you think would be of interest to us, we’d love to hear from you!

Unlike traditional auction platforms where sellers may face uncertainties such as setting reserves or dealing with other unknown factors, August Global operates similarly to our traditional dealership sales process. Sellers are not subject to reserve setting or auction dynamics. Each seller is also assigned a dedicated sales specialist to assist them throughout the entire process.

When you sell your vehicle through August Global, we handle all of the logistics on your behalf including photoshoots, vehicle inspections and detailing, money wires (including handling different currencies), and shipping/brokerage.

There’s also the benefit of us being able to offer lease/finance options and extended warranties for many of the vehicles sold through our platform.

We specialize in exotic, high-end luxury, and certain classic vehicles.

We understand that there’s no shortage of special vehicles out there so if you’re unsure whether your vehicle qualifies, feel free to reach out to us, and our team will be happy to assist you!

Our fee structure is on a case-by-case basis and will be discussed transparently with you upfront before proceeding with the consignment. Fees typically cover marketing, photography/media, listing creation, and sales assistance. We believe in fair and competitive pricing, ensuring that both sellers and buyers have a positive experience.

The time it takes to sell a vehicle can vary depending on several factors including market demand, vehicle condition, and pricing. Our team works diligently to market your vehicle effectively and ensure a timely sale. Your dedicated sales specialist will provide regular updates throughout the process.

Our team will handle all inquiries for your vehicle on your behalf. Any reasonable offers will be brought to you for discussion. You won’t have to worry about tire kickers around here!

Once a sale price is mutually agreed upon, we take care of all the details including wire transfers for the funds, shipping/brokerage coordination, and even assisting with getting the vehicle detailed prior to delivery.

You then have (2) options:
1) take a full payout from the sale of your vehicle
2) use the proceeds from the sale of your vehicle as tax savings if you choose to purchase another vehicle from August Motorcars

Our goal is to make the entire sales process as simple and stress-free as possible for all parties involved!

Yes, you can withdraw your vehicle from the consignment program at any time, although certain terms and conditions may apply. We prioritize customer satisfaction and will work with you to accommodate any changes or decisions you make regarding your vehicle.
