Preparing for the Barrett-Jackson Auction



This year there will be hundreds of vehicles preparing for the famous annual Barrett-Jackson auction in Las Vegas. As one of the world’s most renowned classic car auctions, proud owners of restored classic cars can show off their hard work and auction their cars to other collectors and enthusiasts.

What is the Barrett-Jackson Auction?

The Barrett-Jackson Auction is a world famous classic car auction. For 2015, the auction will be held from September 24th to 26th at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. This event lets classic car owners show off their work and auction their cars to other collectors and enthusiasts.

Individuals looking forward to the show have a lot to prepare for. If you are planning on auctioning your own classic vehicle, you will want to consider the following:

Check the Mechanics

Now is the time to make sure your car is ready for auction. Check your vehicle’s brakes and other engine components to make sure the car will start and run smoothly during the auction. After all, nothing can lower the price more than a classic car that will not start. Be ready to provide the details of your vehicle’s mechanical condition and restoration including any upgrades that have been made in the past.

Give the Car a Full Detail

One of the most important ways to drive bidder interest is to ensure your vehicle is aesthetically prepared to provide that wow-factor. As there is a significant correlation between the aesthetic appearance of a vehicle and its sale price, you’ll want to ensure your classic beauty is ready to shine at the event. We recommend having it fully detailed on the inside and out paying extra attention to exterior detail, including a thorough wax. If you have any scratches or scuffs on the finish, buff them out and touch up the paint.

Temporary Storage Before Shipment

Depending on when you arrange to have your vehicle transported to and from the event, you may wish to store your car for a length of time in a safe location. TFX International offers short and long term storage in our fully-equipped 30,000 square foot warehouse. Our facility is monitored with security cameras and on-site staff on a daily basis to ensure the safety of your vehicle. Our warehouse is heated to maintain the condition of your vehicle for an extended period of time.
