About

Vehicle Inventory Professionals, That’s who WE are! Combine that with TALENT and EXPERIENCE  and you have a combination that is unmatched in the Automotive Re-marketing Arena.

  • V.I.P. is a live car auction event for licensed dealers that enables franchisees to connect with wholesalers and independent car dealers.

  • We have an award-winning, nationally known auctioneer in Jim Smith. His experience in this field helps ensure that each auction is a success.

  • Our auctions are exciting, fast paced and we enjoy an 80 % sale rate at every auction.

  • With fresh trades from Gwinnett Place Ford, Mall of GA Ford, Infiniti of Gwinnett, Subaru of Gwinnett, and Roswell Infiniti, RBM of Atlanta, RBM of Alpharetta, and Acura Carland just to name a few, we have something for everyone.

  • Our mission is to provide franchise dealers with the most efficient way to sell their wholesale inventory profitably and to provide wholesalers the means to buy inventory at a competitive price without paying hefty auction fees.

  • Customer Service is local – you get a ‘real’ person with hands-on customer service to talk to about our auctions, to help you through the registration process and keep you informed about auctions, special events, title status, etc.

  • We work with our customers to provide customized financing and payment options that work for them.

  • We provide thorough and quick title processing services for each vehicle purchased.

  • Professional e-blasts and communications keep our customer base aware of upcoming sales, special events, and great inventory that will be for sale at upcoming auctions.

  • We have built long-term fantastic relationships with some of Atlanta’s most premier franchise dealer principals and wholesale managers and they provide us with a quality inventory of vehicles to make available for purchase by Licensed Dealers.

  • Our Owner and General Manager are very hands on and make every attempt to get to know each and every dealer.
