Boats & Motors Consignment Program
We appreciate the opportunity to handle the consignment and sale
of your boat. We are a Boating Industry
Top 100 dealer and are proud to be number 3 in the State of Texas. We specialize in new and used
boat sales and will ensure the boat listing and potential sale is handled in a
professional and timely manner. Not all
boats will qualify for our consignment program.
We have certain conditions and requirements that must be agreed upon
before we will consign your boat.
Proof of Ownership:
Proof of legal ownership is required for all consignment boats. We require copies or the original titles for the boat, motor, and trailer
to be filed with AB&M before consigning your boat. If you have an extended protection plan, we
will need policy proof of coverage along with the applicable transfer
Inspection: All consignment boats are
inspected at our Service facility prior to the sales listing. Proof of Maintenance will be requested to
validate the manufacturer’s requirement for necessary maintenance. Engines receive a compression test or leak down
test. All boats receive a comprehensive
on-the-water test. Systems are checked
from bow to stern including full inspection of the trailer, wiring and lights. An Austin Boats & Motors MCI Form is used
for official record of consigning condition.
All repairs and inspections required by Austin Boats & Motors
subsequent to the MCI must be completed and paid for in full before any
marketing or representation of the consigned boat will begin. The inspection charge is $297 plus applicable
taxes. All potential boat buyers can
feel confident the boat has passed a rigorous inspection by a licensed boat
Lakeway Location: With
over 5 acres of highly traveled highway frontage in beautiful Lakeway, we have
the prime spot to display your boat and attract potential customers. Boats are displayed at our dealership and are
readily accessible to potential buyers.
Marketing & Advertising: We take pride in our
ability to effectively market and sell your boat using several sources such as
our website, various
boat related websites, online ads, videos and print ads.
Storage: We have over 5 acres of land in Lakeway, Texas
with plenty of room to store and facilitate the sale of your boat. Our lot is very safe and secure so you can
rest assured your boat will be clean and well cared for while it is here. We require all consignees to maintain
insurance on their property while it is for sale at our dealership.
On-The-Water-Orientation: Once sold, we ensure all customers are
instructed in the safe operation of the boat, engine and trailer prior to final
delivery. All customers are accompanied
by qualified dealership personnel from start to finish.
Financing: Our Finance Department
utilizes several marine lending institutions that offer competitive loan
packages to our customers. There is no
need for our potential boat buyers seek out their own financing source. We handle it all here; safe and hassle free. We also offer extended service agreements for
potential buyers to enhance the value of the boat.
Transfer of Title:
As the selling boat dealer, we will ensure all applicable title transfers
are completed to the new boat owner. You are responsible for any monthly payments
and insurance during the consignment and loan payoff process. No
proceeds (if applicable) will be dispersed to you until 1) your loan is paid in
full and 2) we have possession of your negotiable titles for the boat, motor,
and trailer. We will make payment to your financial institution. We will
request the difference owing by the consignor when we are prepared to pay your
loan off after the boat purchase has been finalized. The process of paying off
your boat loan and receiving your titles can take up to 30 days. We will require Consignor signatures on all
bank released documents before any proceeds are dispersed to you.
Fees: Our Consignment Program is
designed to recover maximum value from the liquidation of your boat. More value can be recovered and time can be
saved by letting experienced sales professionals show and sell your boat. We offer no haggle net pricing which provides
an exact dollar amount at the point of consignment thereby eliminating your
involvement in the negotiation process.
