Classic Car Auctions – Online Bidding and Viewing

Online Timed Auction

Our Classic Car and Motorcycle Auctions are taking place online this year.

These are timed auctions and bidding will be open at 12 noon on a Wednesday with the first lots ending 24 hours later at 12 noon on the Thursday.

It works well and is simple to use.


If you would like to view or bid for vehicles in this auction you will need to create on account beforehand.

Please do this in plenty of time – ideally right now!

We are expecting 1,000’s of people to register and it may be difficult for us to help you in the last few minutes.

Step 1 – Create an account

To bid online you will need to create an account on our online bidding platform if you do not already have one.

Step 2 – Verify your email address

Then keep an eye out for an email with a link in it to verify your email address.

If this does not arrive please check your spam or junk folder.

Step 3 – Register to bid or view the auction

You will then need to click the blue button “Click here to Register” for this auction on the list of auctions on our online bidding platform.

Bidding and Deposits

If you would like to bid please click the button below to pre-authorise us to collect your deposit payment.

If you are a successful bidder this gives us the authorisation to collect your deposit payment of up to £500 on the fall of the hammer.

If you do not buy any lots then your deposit payment will not be collected and you will not be charged.

Please make sure you use the same email address as you used to create your online bidding account.

If you cannot see the button please click here instead.

We have disabled the payment button for the moment. You may pre-authorise your deposit from this page on any day in the 5 days leading up to the next classic car and motorcycle auction.

If you need any help with this please call our office on 01233 506266.

Hate computers?!

Don’t worry! If you are a technophobe or don’t have access to a computer, you can fill out a commission bid form and we will arrange for one of our team to bid on your behalf.

If you are thinking of selling your classic car the best thing is to give me a call. We can have a chat about how the auction works and I can tell you what I think the auction sale price will be.
