About C&F Remarketing
C&F Remarketing is an asset remarketing company that assists you in liquidating your assets through wholesale channels, maximizing the price while helping you minimize related auction expenses.
C&F Remarketing was founded in 2011.
Being part of a community bank, we know the value of personal relationships. We are “Focused on You.”
Our team is comprised of seasoned automotive and financial services professionals. We believe that strong relationships are the key to long-term success in this industry.
Our team has built strong relationships at each auction with everyone from the CR writer to the clean- up/repair shop/body shop staff to the office staff to the GM. These relationships are critical in getting the cars prepared to bring the most they can at the auction and in getting the best run numbers to maximize the sale price.
You remain in control of your inventory and make the final decisions while we work on your behalf to get you the most for each unit.
