Online Auctions

In 2014 site founder Randy Nonnenberg launched Bring a Trailer (BaT) Auctions. Based in San Francisco, they make an effort to be selective in the cars their site posts each week -- the company says it likes bargains, dream cars and rarities. BaT Auctions works with the seller to collect information on the car and lists it for a week. Each car has an open, live-updated commenting system, backed by car experts, where potential buyers can ask seller their pressing questions. All buyers are prequalified. Go to BaT
