These auctions take place every three weeks throughout the year.

We sell a wide range of vehicles on behalf of private individuals, local businesses, corporate users and public services.

The vehicles range from small vans right up to HGV's.

Demand for good quality clean vehicles has been consistently strong in recent years.

Four Wheel Drive Vehicles

Our 4WD drive auctions are very popular.

As well as selling vehicles on behalf of members of the public we have long standing relationships with many of the South East's leading dealerships including the Barretts Group and Lipscomb.

Classic Car and Motorcycle Auctions

Our classic auctions attract a huge nationwide audience.

We hold three sales each year - in the spring, summer and autumn.

Each auction features up to 150 cars and motorcycles and a section for classic memorabilia.

Boat and Marine Auctions

We offer a specialist onsite auction service for the owners and managers of marinas.
