Carlisle, Andy Lally Alive join to create Awesome Joe Auctions
“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.
