From artwork to luxury timepieces, authenticated pre-owned luxury goods are in high demand. In fact, authenticated items have proven to sell faster and fetch higher resale prices than unauthenticated merchandise.

Selling an item registered with a Trusted.com eTitle can mean more money in your pocket! Because you can prove your item is authentic, you have the potential to command a higher sales price.

Essentially an electronic title, a Trusted.com eTitle offers potential buyers real-time verification of authenticity and provenance. Interested customers can view the eTitle by searching the serial number through Trusted.com and instantly confirm the item is authentic.

When selling your item, you will find it beneficial to cite the benefits of your Trusted.com eTitle, which is transferable to the buyer (if the eTitle has previously been registered to you).

Provides Assurance to Potential Buyers:
– Proves item is authentic, not counterfeit
– Tracks distribution chain of the item from the brand to the authorized seller
– Confirms original seller as an Authorized Dealer

Provides After-Sale Benefits to Buyer:
– Documented and verifiable proof of authenticity (useful for insurance/resale purposes)
– Increased value retention
– Potential to command a higher sales price at resale
– Ability to report a theft or lost timepiece
