Frequently Asked Questions
Classic/Luxury Car Enthusiasts
What does it cost to add my car to the Virtual Garage of Throddal? What about multiple cars?
On Throddal, your Virtual Garage consists of both public cars you follow and your personal cars from your collection. It’s free to put one or many cars in your Virtual Garage
How does the Throddal Gauge calculate the value of my classic car?
We have built a proprietary algorithm that looks at many different factors as it relates to your specific make, model and year
My Throddal Gauge is not accurate, who do I contact to challenge the valuation?
If you have recently purchased this vehicle and can supply us with your bill of sale when editing your vehicle in your personal collection and we will add this sold data to our algorithm and update your Throddal Gauge from there.
Is my Throddal Gauge the price I will get should I want to sell my car?
Well, the Gauge is simply that. It is a gauge of what your car could be worth. Often cars sell for more than the Throddal Gauge, but there are on occasion those times when a car would sell below the Throddal Gauge price. The simple answer is your car is worth what a buyer is willing to pay you and you are willing to accept!
What is the difference between my "Cars I follow" and my "Personal Collection"
Your pubic garage consists of two types of cars. Your cars (Personal Collection) and other cars (Cars you Follow). The cars you follow are simply cars that you have great interest in but don’t personally own. And your “Personal Collection” is just like it sounds. Those are cars that you actually own. In your personal collection you can add details that only you the car owner might know.
Can I keep my Personal Collection of cars private to only me?
Absolutely. Your privacy is our biggest priority. Simply click on the Virtual Garage and choose “Edit”. When editing your Virtual Garage, will see a choice under of public or private. Simply move to private and only you will have access to your private Virtual Garage
