VALT Auto Club is the Bay Area's fastest growing automotive enthusiast club.


A Bay Area based lifestyle brand, VALT has created a space where automotive enthusiasts from a wide range of sub-segments come together to experience their shared passions. The VALT membership, launched in 2022, offers both enthusiasts and businesses a platform to engage with their community and build relationships in intimate settings.


As a brand that began by hosting large-scale public events, VALT has partnered with some of the most influential and respected Bay Area brands in the automotive industry and beyond including Hagerty, Lucid Motors and Peet's Coffee. We are proud to add Genau to that growing list in this new partnership.


If you are an automotive enthusiast looking to join a rapidly growing group of likeminded people or a business building their brand in the automotive industry, we've got just the platform for you. 


Ingo Schmoldt has been part of the VALT community from the very beginning.  He is a power Bring a Trailer seller and can offer you many advantages over attempting to list a car yourself.


With decades of experience photographing automobiles, writing articles and preparing presentations, we are uniquely suited to provide you with all the tools to successfully prepare and execute an auto, motorcycle or memorabilia auction on the #1 automotive online auction site in the world.

VALT has been a proud sponsor of the Genau Charity Rally since 2021, raising over $20,000 to support the UCSF Parkinson's Research and Patient Care clinic!
