Are you thinking about selling your aircraft? Great! Are you considering selling it yourself? Well, not so great. Despite what you may think, selling aircraft is not an easy job, and it can be very time-consuming. This is what aircraft brokerage services are meant for.
Sure, you know people in the industry, you have some experience in sales, and you know your aircraft. All of that is great, but it’s still better to hire an aircraft broker to sell it for you. Are there costs for them to sell it? Of course. There are also costs if you sell it, and they could be higher.
At the end of the day, hiring a broker can not only give you peace of mind, they let you keep your schedule intact. No missed meetings or late appointments because you’re answering calls and digging up information you didn’t think anyone would be interested in. All you have to do is connect with your broker once in a while and collect the check when it comes in.
Brokers Save You Money
Brokers and their sales team will perform a market analysis so that your aircraft is sold for the perfect price, leaving nothing on the table. They will also put together a sales campaign, listing it both domestically and internationally, answer every call, talk to every interested buyer, answer every question, follow up on every lead, and negotiate the sale for you.
We Put Together a Campaign
We will launch a specific, targeted campaign built around your aircraft specifically and will launch it both abroad and here at home, in the U.S. This will generate interest that our experienced team will turn into serious prospects.
Keep up on Trends
Our team keeps up on all sales trends, knowing that what worked last year–or even last month—may need updating or tweaking. Buyers today are more sophisticated than ever before and research aircraft differently than they used to. We not only know how to reach them, we DO reach them.
We Play Excellent Follow Up
Follow-up is the name of the game. About 80 percent of sales are made on the fifth to 12th contact, according to the National Sales Executive Association. If you don’t follow up, don’t bother playing the game. This is the time we help your buyer overcome any stumbling blocks he may have before signing on the dotted line.
We Relate Well
Buyers aren’t interested in your sentiments and memories. That sounds harsh, but it’s true. With a broker they know they won’t get bogged down with emotional baggage and will receive professional assistance to buy the aircraft of their dreams—yours! They appreciate pros who can answer every question quickly and easily, helping them across the finish line with no problems.
Let’s Be Partners
We know your time is valuable. Ask yourself, where would your time be best spent? Doing what you love and do best? Or training someone to replace you every time you have to go show your aircraft to a potential buyer? Let us answer the pesky questions, give the tour, and stroke the potential buyer for you.
