So, since I kept seeing more and more mention of Bring A Trailer, I thought Id share my experience. Hint: Im embarrassed for them.
Right off the bat they lost the original email to request an auction. After pinging them again after two weeks, they just simply said they didnt get it (even though they had responded). Then they proceeded to come back with question after question dragging out the whole process for another several weeks rather than just giving me a list of things they needed. They insisted on a lower reserve when they clearly dont have an understanding of the Ferrari models. They demanded certain pictures and then didnt use them. They asked for a write up and then cut out all the most descriptive and important service related information. My car has been serviced by Dave Helms and is loaded with his upgraded components, but they stated they wouldnt allow mentioning products or businesses. They decided when to hold the auction and without any warning held the it over a holiday weekend. I sent them a bunch of pictures thinking theyd use the best ones when in fact they used the worst ones. if I had had known this then I would have given the bare minimum but then it would have drug the process out more. I never talked to the same person through the whole process; Three different people to set it up and then a completely different person informed me the auction was live. After it ended there was a bidder that had a timing issue on his screen. How does that happen? Timed web auctions are about the simplest thing to build. Ebay never has this problem. Their response to the failed bidder: too bad. They wont give me the contact info for all the bidders, only the winning bidder.
Quite frankly, I dont know how they have any business. I cant figure out if they are just a bunch of arrogant, uninformed idiots or they are all chromosome deficient.
