Car enthusiasts and collectors from the four corners are gathering in Hershey, Penn today and tomorrow for the largest automobile swap meet in the U.S. Since the first event in 2007, this two day auction has attracted huge crowds. Last year, it was standing room only in the auction house, with 90% of the lots being sold, and RM Auctions booked over 9.6 million dollars.
One of the reasons this auction has become so popular, is that the price point is different from some of the other high dollar auctions. During this car auction it is common for bidders to take home a much more affordable ride. For example, a 1973 Lincon Mark 4, which is being offered for $13,000.
Some of the other auto highlights include:
- 1896 Armstrong Phaeton
- 1915 Stanley Model 820 12-Passenger Mountain Wagon
- 1958 Mercedes-Benz 220 S Cabriolet
- 1930 Cadillac V-16 Sport Phaeton
- 1932 Pierce-Arrow Model 53
...and many more. For more information about this auction, visit RM Auctions

Answers to Your Car Moving Questions
The hardest thing for people researching car moving companies to understand is that the prices they are getting are not hard and fast gaurantees, but rather ESTIMATES of what one company thinks it will take to get a vehicle moved promptly versus another company's opinion of what it will take. Don't be fooled, there are not carriers committed to take your vehicle at these quoted prices, the company you choose will still have to get to work getting a carrier to commit to move it at the price they quote you.
Your total price breaks down into two parts, the broker's fee (or 'deposit' as everyone calls it) and the carriers fee (your COD amount) Make no mistake about this, EVERYONE YOU ARE GETTING SALES CALLS FROM IS GOING TO BROKER YOUR MOVE. In this industry, there are brokers who try to fool you into thinking that they are the actual carriers and there are an equal amount of carriers who sell themselves on the fact that they have a truck or two but are not being honest about the fact that they broker out 90% of the orders they book. Here is a quick easy way to tell, if a company takes an up front fee, whether they call it a deposit or any other name, they are a broker. Carriers do not take any payment until the vehicle is delivered.
In our opinion, you are crazy to do so. Have you ever been paid up front for the work that you perform for your employer? Why would you pay a fee up front when there are reliable and trustworthy companies like ours that won't ask for it until we provide you with your carriers details?
The average transit time from pick up to delivery on any vehicle going coast to coast will be between one and two weeks. From there you can figure your transit time based on how far your vehicle is traveling, i.e. from either coast to the Midwest might average 3-7 days.
