Real supercars. Real people.
A much-needed rejuvenation of the used supercar market in recent years has brought with it its fair share of reputable brands and legitimate dealers, but as with any industry, there are also organisations that may not have your best interest in mind. Vigilance is key. Some of these faceless eBay-esque platforms can leave you questioning who your point of contact is and what is going to happen to your car. You’re left feeling flat and the whole thing seemed a bit impersonal. In more extreme cases, individuals have reported being coerced into reducing their reserve price, in other instances contractual loopholes have been exploited to the benefit of the company facilitating the purchase. Understandably, this is enough to put some off using a similar service for good, but all is not lost, our team are the real deal.
Know who you’re dealing with
At PaddlUp, we’re real people dealing with real cars. We’re bona fide supercar and sports car enthusiasts with almost a century of collective industry experience; our ethos can be gleaned from a conversation with one of our team in which you’ll discern bravura and a deep-rooted passion for cars. You’ll find our Consignment Concierges to be friendly, approachable and on hand to answer any questions you may have. Instead of leaving you to your own devices, we make it our mission to understand what makes you tick, helping you find the perfect used supercar. We will either suggest suitable examples from our existing range of Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, Aston Martin and more in The Gallery, or we will do our utmost to source something else that is completely to your liking. Matching the right car with the right person is a big part of what we do.
No pressure, we’re here to help
We understand that your car is important to you and that times are tough for everyone. At no point will we pressure you to lower your reserve figure. Conversely, we’re realistic about your prospects. If the used supercar market has shifted since we agreed on an initial price, we are forthcoming with that information and can advise on what the best course of action will be. The final sale decision, however, is yours and yours alone.
Communication is key
A dedicated liaison will manage the sale or purchase of your car from start to finish meaning there’s one point of contact and no mixed messages, keeping you well-informed and providing a seamless and stress-free experience. Throughout every stage of the process, we’re upfront about the details of the car, what the latest updates are and how much interest it's receiving. When it comes to communication, we employ a robust no-nonsense approach. When we know something, you know something. False promises aren’t our style.
Trust the process
Before you consign a car for sale with PaddlUp, it’s key that you trust our team and how we operate implicitly, that’s why our platform doesn’t condone time wasters in any capacity. No tyre kickers. No phantom bidders. All of our users are verified so when you receive an offer, you know it's genuine. All of the sports cars and performance cars available to purchase on our platform go through a similarly stringent screening process to ensure they are not only of the finest quality but also that they are legitimately sourced; nothing is going to fall off on your drive home!
