Thank you all for a fabulous experience in attending your auction on Saturday.  We travelled up from North Wales especially on Friday just to attend the auction, we had an amazing time looking at all the cars and everyone was so friendly even though you were all so busy.

The girls in the office all worked so hard.  The queue was outside the door when we arrived at 9am and people were still queuing when we dragged ourselves away at 6pm.  Well done girls!

A special thank you to Charlie who showed us the Yamaha motorbike, what an amazing young man he is - a real star in the making!

We met Derek in the car park delivering a car to the transporter - thank you for chatting to us even though your voice was going after the auction! It really did mean a lot to us.

A perfect end to a perfect weekend - something we will never forget, the village is so pretty and everywhere so clean.  We really could not fault anything.  Thank you everyone.

A huge thank you to the hard working team there on behalf of our late friends for selling their treasured pride and joy "Winnie" the Morris 10/4 and their Gazelle.  They would have been proud and honoured to see them returning to your caring hands.  We came to the auction and had an amazing day.  We are so very grateful for all you've done and wish you all much success in the future.

Our caravan holiday (many years ago) in Thornton le Dale included a visit to your museum.

I am reminded that our caravan battery lost its charge at a crucial moment and a good fairy at the garage quickly put it on charge and refused payment.

Memories are treasures so I thought of you.

Just a short note to say 'thank you' to you personally Derek for our various discussions, your collecting, sprucing up and finally selling at auction of the Rover P6 Estourer. 

It was a pleasure dealing with you and in particular you and your 'helpful' and 'can do' approach to business-most refreshing in this day and age!

All best wishes to you and the Mathewsons team!

Just to say thank you for negotiating the sale of my Morris car and reducing the percentage to help conclude the sale, especially as you came to collect the car.
Thank you again

Just a quick note of thanks to Derek and his team.

Recently you sold my late fathers Singer Gazelle for us.

You made the whole transaction easy from start to finish.

We would just like to pass on our thanks.

To management and all the staff,

Just to say thank you for the pleasant service you afforded me in the sale of my car at the February sale.

From the write up in the catalogue, the rostrum during sale and the presentation of the car on display. Just One Big Thank You and may your success continue.
