    Bring a Trailer (BaT) Auctions: Worth Listing Your Car or Not?

    MODERATOR'S NOTE: This is a general discussion on the suitability of the Bring a Trailer (BaT) site as a venue for selling one's car to bring maximum prices, or not.



    DISCLAIMER: Totally unrelated to the Cossie auction

    I'm becoming more and more distrusting of BaT each passing day.

    Most recent situation... The auction of a low mile AMC Pacer.

    https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1975-amc-pacer-2/

    The high bidder (non winning as it went RNM) is a blatant shill account. They ONLY bid on cars from this particular seller, and always fall away right before the Reserve is met. Both accounts were even created at the same point in time.

    I, along with many others, have alerted BaT Admin to this yet nothing has been about it. Both accounts are still active. And BaT remains silent.

    I'm actually beginning to think there are pro-BaT "hype" accounts being deployed to pump up certain cars and promote the honor/trustworthiness of BaT.
