CLASSIC CAR SALES SERVICES

We work on a ‘Sell-or-Return’ consignment  basis.

We specialise in the sale and acquisition of classic and modern classic cars. We’ve been in the car world for over 20 years and we pride ourselves on providing a one-to-one, professional service to all of our clients.

With circa 20 years of working with and for premium car brands and with strong connections in the industry combined with previous experience in branding and marketing we are strongly equipped in all the required skills to market any car and based on current market conditions we’re able to complete the sale of your vehicle successfully and most likely at a desired agreed valuation.

Finance & Storage

We have partnered with Rare Car Finance and Moss Automotive to provide the essential services to our current and future clients. The services include finance of rare, classic and sport cars as well as state of the art car storage and transportation services.

Above and beyond…

We’re not just car sales people. We are passionate car collectors and owners and we believe that owning a classic or sports car isn’t only about ownership but also about a certain lifestyle therefore we went above and beyond and launched entertainment segments of our business which include an online journal with regular automotive and lifestyle articles, an automobilia and car-art shop as well as a series of events through our own event company Drive Classics Club. Hopefully all the above can be seen as the additional ‘perk’ of the classic car ownership and help future buyers with the decision making and their move into the classic car world.

 

Selling with us – here’s how it works:

1. Basic information.

Send us basic information about your car and yourself. Or simply call us.

2. Inspection, photography, and writeup.

We’ll arrange a date to meet with you to inspect the car and based on the current market, history and condition of the vehicle we will agree the sale price as well as the length of our exclusive sale contract.
Once agreed we will take your car into stock, professionally clean it and create a curated lifestyle photo-story. We will then create a comprehensive description of your vehicle and launch the advertisement of it.

3. Your car gets published.

Your advert goes live on DriveClassics.co and all of our social media channels as well as some of the most popular UK and international classified websites. We then continuously work on promotion of the vehicle through the industry contacts as well as social media and other publishing channels. Where possible and with prior agreement we can display your car at suitable car events to gain the additional exposure.

4. Sale

Potential buyers will be contacting us directly so we can answer all their questions, arrange test drives, negotiate the sale details (including finance offers) and complete the sale on your behalf taking all the unnecessary and time consuming process of your hands.

Once your vehicle gets sold we organise the transfer of funds to your account as soon as possible after the full payment and collection of your vehicle has successfully completed. Our commission is deducted from the final selling price of your vehicle.

Cost

Based on an exclusive-sale contract (meaning we are the sole agent selling the car) we will charge a percentage of the successful sale price of the vehicle.

There’s an upfront marketing cost of £350 which is deducted from the final fee if the car gets sold by us.
This includes a curated photo-story, an in depth description of the vehicle as well as marketing it on all our websites and social media channels and the below websites:

1. Autotrader (and their affiliate websites)
2. ClassicCarsForSale
3. CarAndClassic
4. eBay Motors
* note – most of the marketing cost goes towards the advertising on the above websites.
