We have been conducting classic and vintage car and motorcycle auctions for 16 years. What originally started out with one auction a year has grown to seven specialist sales every year. This department is headed up by self confessed petrol head and serial classic car owner Matthew Whitney, Associate Director.
Matthew travels extensively during his working day seeing single vehicles to complete car collections and we have sold vehicles for clients throughout England and Wales, up to Scotland, across to Ireland and even over to Cyprus! Matthew has always been mad on motors, having owned a Jaguar XJ6 for two years before he could legally drive on the road. He was also a keen school boy motocross motorcyclist who raced in many competitions more years ago than he wishes to remember.
Over the years we have sold millions and millions of pounds of cars and motorcycles, and one classic car auction totaled just under £500,000. Highlights of the vehicles we have sold are an Aston Martin DB6, which was garaged stored near Reading and having not turned a wheel for over 30 years, for £150,000, a fabulous Rolls Royce Phantom II Sedanca de Ville £88,000 and a Mini Cooper S, from a deceased estate near Leicester, which was original but in a poor condition for an amazing £33,000. All of our auctions use live internet bidding platforms to ensure that every lot, whether it is worth £20 or £500,000, reaches the widest possible market and sells for the best price possible.
All of our auctions use live internet bidding platforms to ensure that every lot, whether it is worth £20 or £500,000, reaches the widest possible market and sells for the best price possible. In the run up to an auction we receive 100’s of emails requesting further information for lots in the sale. Attached to these email replies, we regularly send well over 1,000 digital images, such is the huge interest generated in our auctions.
