About our Classic Car and Motorcycle Auctions

We hold three Classic Car and Motorcycle Auctions each year in the spring, summer and autumn.

All auctions take place online with physical viewing of the lots taking place at our auction centre in Ashford in the week leading up to and during the auction.

We make it very easy for you to buy or sell and are here to offer personal help at any stage – just give us a call on 01233 506266.

What do we sell?

Our classic auctions feature cars and motorcycles from the early 1900s to modern-day classics from the early 2000s. We also offer a section of classic memorabilia.

Here are a few examples from past auctions.

General Classics

General Classics

Sitting between vintage cars and the modern classics these cars account for the majority of those we sell.

There is something for everyone and a huge audience of enthusiastic buyers.

Prices range from a few £1,000's to well over £50,000.

Sports Cars

Sports Cars

Think E-Type, Porsche 911, Austin-Healey 3000 - you get the idea.

These are the cars that tend to turn most heads!

They often sell for the top prices.

Modern Classics

Modern Classics

Typically 10 to 25 years old, we have seen huge growth in interest in modern classics over recent years.

There's further potential for price increases and these cars can often be used for everyday use.

We predict further growth in the popularity of this sector.

Vintage Cars

Vintage Cars

From the early 1900s these are historic cars deserving of special care and ongoing investment in maintenance and restoration.

Classic Motorcycles

Classic Motorcycles

Taking up less space (and budget) classic motorcycles are very popular and sell well.

Whilst many are from the post-war era we are beginning to see growing interest in more recent decades from the '70s onwards.

Classic Car Memorabilia

Classic Car Memorabilia

Everything from spare wheels, bumper and body panels to dealership signage.

From toy cars to prints and paintings.

Even complete cars in bits for rebuilding and restoration.
