Photo Guide.

Better photos and videos help attract more bidders and buyers to your auction. Follow these tips and recommendations to get your listing live faster and to maximize bidder engagement.

Photography Tips:

  • Wash and detail the inside, outside, undercarriage, and engine bay. Empty your vehicle of trash, debris, and personal items so that viewers are focused on the vehicle.
  • While we do not require that you use a professional photographer, we cannot accept cell-phone pictures. We recommend a service like Snappr to get fast, easy photography from a professional.
  • If possible, shoot outside in a shaded, quiet, and clean location to capture your vehicle in the best light to eliminate distracting background elements.
  • Provide hi-res .png or .jpg image files in a  horizontal ("landscape") orientation, ideally 3:2 aspect ratio.
