“We work to ensure the safety of online transactions by subjectively assessing vehicles with the utmost regard for value and credibility standards,” Lance Miller, co-owner of Carlisle Auctions, was quoted in the announcement.
“From the start we offer buyers and sellers a streamlined purchasing experience, with a growing network of partners that provide everything from financing to logistical support once the auction ends.”
Carlisle Auctions is the consignment arm of Carlisle Events, the Pennsylvania-based company that organizes a series of car shows, some with accompanying vehicle auctions. Andy Lally Alive’s website says it is a marketing and technology developer. The company bears the name of racer Andy Lally and was co-founded by David Atadan.
The new online auction is named in tribute to Awesome Joe Racing, a New Jersey-based racing team founded by Jerry Raffa. The team and the racing house “are represented by the bad-boy-in-a-leather-jacket mascot, Awesome Joe, who touts the wry humor and skill of a mechanic that can tell what your ride has under the hood at a glance,” according to the news release.
According to the news release, consignments are free unless sold, and successful bidders will pay only a 2 percent commission.
