Why consign when I can sell the car myself?
Selling a car is a process that takes time, skill and experience to get the maximum price. Here are a few reasons to consign your vehicle with Superior Motors:
- Quick Sale—consigned vehicles usually sell within 30 days.
- Exposure—Strong social media and web presence.
- Finance—80% of cars sold are financed.
- Trades—70% of all buyers have a vehicle to trade.
- Paperwork—All consigned vehicle, Department of Licensing and loan institution paperwork is handled at the point of sale.
- Tax Savings — Most people are unaware that they receive a tax credit when they trade in or sell a car to a dealership. There is no difference with a consignment car, and you will be given those same tax credits once we sell your vehicle.
How Consignment Process Works
To consign a car with Superior Motors there are no upfront fees. In most cases, to get things started we simply need the vehicle on premise and the consignment vehicle paperwork so we can best represent your vehicle. After we have these items we’ll have your car up and listed for sale within a few days.

“If you’re looking for a luxury or high-performance vehicle this is the place. One of the best dealerships I’ve dealt with, the hospitality is outstanding, everyone is willing to help.
The guys over there are very professional. Highly recommend this place if you are looking to consign (sell) your car for the best market value. I gave them my Maserati to work with and they sold it in 3 weeks!!!
I’m very happy with their service and I do really appreciate what Superior Motors has to offer, they definitely have earned my business now and in the future. My next car will be from them as well for sure. These guys are the best and they know what are they doing.
Thanks, Ed for everything!“
“I have used Superior Motors twice – Once to install a Bimmertech backup camera in my 2015 BMW X1, the second to consign my Boxster.
Both times I received great communication and excellent service!
The Boxster was initially slow to sell because December in Seattle (when I consigned it) is not exactly convertible season, but once the weather turned the car sold quickly and I got the agreed amount out of it, which was several thousand dollars more than the best offer I had when trying to sell it myself online.
Kudos to Ed and crew– great little shop!“ – Ryan M.
