Buying a Classic & Bidding Options


Bidding online, by telephone or commission
Our next classic auction on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th January will run as scheduled, however crowd attendance is not permitted and all bidding will be facilitated remotely. The auction starts 10:30 am on both days with automobilia being offered before the first car is offered at midday. The auctioneer usually runs through 45 to 50 lots per hour.  Please note: We are planning to re-open the classic auctions to the public in January 2022.
Watch Live

Viewing is available to the trade and the public. Specific cars can be viewed by appointment anytime but blanket viewings are now offered from 9am to 4pm on Wednesday 26th, Thursday 27th & Friday 28th January. You do not need to book a slot. If you wish to arrange your own professional inspection of any vehicle, please call us to discuss. Finally, we have always offered impromptu telephone walk-round descriptions but we now employ the services of independent appraisers who will be on-site from Monday 23rd August to Friday 25th August to provide unbiased assessments and trades-eye views of the cars. Ultimately the decision to purchase rests with yourself and each car has to be taken on its own merits. For example, if it has been stored for a long time, even if it has been subject to recommissioning, this does not guarantee that you can just arrive, get in the car and drive it away. It may require care and attention. Its age, mileage and general value is all to be taken into consideration. Many of the cars will have been on site for several weeks and batteries, etc., will go flat. Common sense must prevail. Please accept that any car may well require some level of recommissioning, however minimal.
