Roy Spencer, founder  –  Classic  Mercedes-Benz Dealer/Restorer – Author.

Created for:

  • Sellers of collectible Mercedes-Benz automobiles who are inclined to leave the marketing of their cars to an experienced seller with an established online platform.
  • Sellers who are unfamiliar/uncomfortable structuring a purchase with an out-of-state and overseas buyer.
  • Sellers who are unfamiliar with creating listing verbiage that clearly establishes their car’s selling points.
  • Sellers who are unfamiliar with assembling a descriptive photographic presentation of their Mercedes.

Why Roy Spencer and

  • 30 years’ experience purchasing, restoring, and marketing classic Mercedes-Benz models around the globe.
  • Global reputation for honesty and integrity.

The Plan:

  • Coordinate with sellers in the creation of compelling/accurate ad copy relevant to each individual Mercedes.
  • Guide sellers on image creation via photo tutorials. We retouch, crop, enhance those images. Guide sellers regarding necessary pre-sale documentation including: data card acquisition, vehicle specific research, records compilation, essential ownership documents and market correct pricing.
  • *Seller sets pricing. Once a sale is agreed upon, seller coordinates directly with buyer and receives funds.
  • Once images and complete information are created, we’ll put together compelling listings that will run on, our eBay Store (buy-it-now/make an offer), Facebook and Instagram.
  • will field all inquiries and qualify potential buyers as to intent, financial capability, conditions of a purchase etc. Qualified prospects are forwarded directly to sellers.
  • When a sale is agreed upon, will advise on creating relevant selling documents, a secure payment sequence, exchange of ownership documents and shipping alternatives. We’re specialists on out-of-state and overseas transactions as well.

*All transactions will be solely between buyer and seller.

What does it cost?

  • Once a Trading Assistant agreement is signed, we ask for a non-refundable $125 fee to create and service the listings as noted in The Plan.
  • If a sale is concluded and funds exchanged, we will invoice a 5% commission or $750 fee, whichever is greater. Typically we use PayPal for these transactions.

Seller Responsibilities:

  • Accurately and responsibly represent your Mercedes-Benz.
  • Provide digital images to the best of your ability based on our tutorials. See our Photo Tutorial for suggestions for presenting your car in a professional manner.
  • Provide a copy front and back of your car’s title (all cars must be titled in the seller’s name).
  • Review/revise the classifieds we create.
  • Discuss condition and price with prospects we provide. Simple and easy!
