Bring a Trailer Process


Avant-Garde is well-known as an award-winning, top seller (@911r) on Bring a Trailer. We provide turnkey auction management for our clients, handling the process from start to finish. We conduct extensive research and a thorough evaluation of a vehicle’s history, documentation, and condition, using our in-house knowledge and network of experts to inform selection and valuation. We present cars in an unparalleled fashion, with a comprehensive history, descriptions, photos, and video for each vehicle. We want to put buyers in the virtual driver’s seat so they can experience a vehicle as if they were present, giving them confidence in their purchase. Quite frankly, we do more than any online service and much more than a traditional auction house.

Our process is proven.

Customer Quote

"I’ve known Josh and Matt for about 3 years and have had nothing but positive experiences. They have photographed, detailed, marketed and sold various autos from my collection for top dollar. Josh and Matt are true professionals in every sense of the word. It’s nice to have such a knowledgeable and genuinely enthusiastic team working on my behalf."
