Selling your Classic Vehicle…

If you are thinking about selling your classic car then we would love to hear from you, whether it's by telephone or email. We can then discuss a potential entry in one of our classic sales held regularly each year. A Vehicle Entry Form can be found here.  We also buy cars direct. So if you would like to sell 'outright' with an immediate decision and fast payment, again please give us a call.

Ideally we need to view the car in person. We appreciate this is not always possible so photographs by email and a verbal description over the telephone will help us advise you with regard a valuation.

We will require as much information as possible to assist us with this valuation.

Note: The earlier you confirm your vehicle(s) entry into one of our classic auctions, the better!

The longer the car is here, the more advertisement and on site viewings it will receive!

We are open 7 days a week with a tremendous amount of foot traffic with visitors continually in our beautiful village.

DON'T FORGET - WE COLLECT AROUND 80% OF ALL AUCTION ENTRIES FREE OF CHARGE !
