Question about Eximports

I was wondering if anyone has ever sold their bike to them? Or know anyone who has? I would guess they would low ball your like car dealerships do.

It's all business. If they buy your vehicle in high how will they sell it? If you were in their shoes, what would you have done any different? Probably not.

Yeah, that's already understood. Obviously someone wouldn't buy something if they can't flip it for a good profit. But my main question is if lets say the KBB price is 6,000. Are they going to offer something like 3,000

Why not? If you are desperate enough, you will sell it to them wouldn't you? After all you are the seller, you set your price. If you dumb enough to sell then don't complain they low ball you on here.

What's your problem? Who said I was desperate? I am trying to get a rough estimate to what expect from eximports as a final option if I finally decide to rid of my bike for another. Secondly, "if you dumb enough to sell" I guess selling a motorcycle is considered dumb. Third, when was I complaining? I simply stated that I would expect them to lowball like dealerships do. I guess that's considered "complaining"

KBB is just someone's opinion of what a vehicle's worth. In business, they have to buy it below that price to turn it around for profit. If you could sell it for what KBB then why not do it on your own?

if you are selling your bike to a dealership, either you dont care, or you are desperate... you will ALWAYS get more if you sell it to an individual. you may have it for a couple months... but if you advertise it in the right spots you will get 20-30% more selling it that way. (maybe more than that.)

Yeah, I know. I've gotten a couple offers for my bike but not quite near what I was wanting. I was just wondering what was to be expected from motorcycle dealerships. The only way I would sell it to eximports or any dealership for that matter is if I HAD to get rid of my bike, but that won't be the case, ever.

No problem here. You asked if they would low ball you on your bike, and I told you that is the way business works. If you decided to sell your bike GL on getting full face value. Going on here like some people whining about how low they got for their bikes or bad service, to me, is complaining.

werd. i'd set the price and hold firm on it then. thats what i did on my dirtbike. granted it was worth alot more than i sold it for, most people couldnt see the value b/c it was not anything near stock. i stuck to my price and it took about 3 weeks, but i got it sold.

he hasn't done any of that. he was simply asking what to expect by going to eximports and if any one has experience with them...wtf is you're problem dude??? you're always so quick to jump down people's throats.

I know I won't get full face value for it. I'm not expecting anything near the KBB value for the bike. But I've had ridiculous offers for my bike from people. From "$1,000 and I pay you 100 a month" to "Give you my creditcard with limit of 1,600 and you buy whatever you want, and I'll pay you monthly"

It's crAaaaaAzzzzzZZzy. But I'm in no rush to sell it so I guess it's cheap entertainment for now.

A generic answer would be that any dealership is going to offer you NADA wholesale for your bike.
There's a range of low wholesale to high wholesale depending on the condition of the bike, what model and color it is, etc.

Another possibility would be to put it on consignment.
We charge 8% of the sales price, and you only get charged if it sells.
We handle advertising, negotiations, financing, lien pay off if there is one, and title transfer.
Basically, we handle all aspects of the sale, we just call you and give you a check.
