Why Broker Your Airplane With Premier Aircraft Sales?
We’re known worldwide. Premier is a go-to source in the US for foreign buyers searching for pre-owned piston aircraft. We’ve delivered airplanes on six continents – to Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, Panama, Ecuador, Bolivia, Colombia, Venezuela, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Suriname, Bahamas, Bermuda, England, France, Denmark, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Turkey, Lithuania, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Israel, United Arab Emirates, Morocco, South Africa, Australia, Thailand and Singapore.
We’re a leader in aircraft sales. As one of the largest dealers of late model used piston aircraft in the US, and as the largest dealer of Diamond and Mooney aircraft in the world, Premier is sought out by buyers and sellers who are in the market today.
We’re eight brokers in one. When you sign a brokerage agreement with a representative from Premier, you are getting the power of eight on-staff brokers, working their eight individual networks, to actively market your aircraft.
We know your brand. Premier has on-staff experts with experience selling Aerostar, Aviat-Husky, Bellanca, Beechcraft, Cessna (piston and jet), Cirrus, Columbia, Commander, Diamond, Extra, Lake, Lear, Liberty, Maule, Mooney, Pilatus, Piper, Pitts, Socata, and Tiger. Our sales and management staff include ex-factory personnel from Diamond, Cessna, Mooney, Socata and Piper.
We’re experts at buying and selling. Our broker representatives have over 200 years of combined experience buying and selling aircraft. Many have 20+ years of experience in the business.
We handle the hassles. Buyers want to see the plane on their schedule – which often means nights, weekends, even holidays. We’re available when they are. And aircraft need careful attention when they are on the market. We make sure it’s spic and span with all squawks fixed before every showing.
We’re accountable. Your broker representative is personally involved in all aspects of your brokerage transaction from advising you on pricing and market conditions to marketing the aircraft, qualifying prospects, demonstrating your aircraft, negotiating your best deal, coordinating pre-buy inspections, resolving problems, and overseeing the closing and delivery processes.
We take trades. Sometimes selling your airplane means disposing of the buyer’s. Unlike independent brokers and small dealers, we have the financial strength to take marketable aircraft in on trade if necessary to close a deal.
We handle finance and insurance. Premier has long working relationships with all of the leading sources for aircraft financing and insurance. We also work with sources that can often handle the deals that can’t get done anywhere else.
We’re highly visible in 14 states. Premier regularly shows aircraft, hosts open houses and attends aviation events in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia.
We’re highly visible online. Our website, one important source of advertising your aircraft, gets thousands of hits per month. We’re a featured dealer in Controller online, EAA Aviators Marketplace, FlightAware.com, autopilotmagazine.com; and a variety of other sources.
We offer instant access to logbooks. Potential buyers rest easy after viewing your logbooks on www.aircraftlogs.com.
We have a huge database of prospects. Our sophisticated customer relationship management program allows us to identify and target prospects for your plane among some 14,000 we maintain in our data base.
We operate our own maintenance facility. That means if something breaks on your airplane, we can get it fixed quickly in our own shop if necessary, rather than wait days for an appointment at another maintenance facility. We are an authorized Mooney and Diamond service center with on-staff factory-trained mechanics, and we have instant access to parts for those brands.
We cooperate with other dealers. Our friendly relationship with other aircraft dealers means one more source for identifying prospects for your airplane.
