Consignor Advances – Once you have decided to consign your motor car with RM Sotheby's, it could take weeks or months to receive your proceeds depending on the timing of the sale. Through consignor advances, we can provide you with immediate capital and liquidity at the time of consignment, with the balance to be paid after settlement.

Equity Releases
 – You may have significant capital tied up in a significant collector car, or the market value of your motor car may have grown significantly over time, and you may want to release some of its equity based on its current market value. We can work with you to value your motor car and create a custom financing solution to meet your financial objectives.

Acquisition Financing
 – If you would like to bid for a motor car RM Sotheby’s is offering, having pre-approved financing in place could give you additional peace of mind on your way to potential ownership. We will be able to outline the potential financing options in advance, giving you added confidence as a bidder or a buyer.
