Unlike other auctions, pre-consigning is free at the Charlotte Racers Expo and is strongly encouraged. Last year, the auction’s 1300+ lot numbers filled up over a week before the event. Those who showed up with merchandise to consign were, in many cases, unable to sell their items at Charlotte because the allotted number of auction lots were already full. A section of lots will be set aside for the karting-only auction as well.
New consignors can also take advantage of the pre-consignment process by educating themselves on what qualifies as a high-quality lot. Many times, newer consignors are not really sure how many lots they have in their merchandise and how much of it is worthy to sell.
A general rule of thumb for assessing questionable consignment merchandise is very simple — if a consignor feels the item is better off in a dumpster, or “junk,” there’s a good chance the staff at the auction will make the same assessment. We pride ourselves on having quality consignments that attract top dollar for our sellers and deliver maximum value for our buyers. If it’s not something a consignor would use under any circumstance, chances are a buyer will not use it either.
