Buying a Classic Vehicle…

Before bidding on any vehicle lots please ensure that you have carried out all the relevant checks (mileage included) that you would require as no warranties or guarantees are supplied.

All vehicles are ‘sold as seen’ and we do encourage you to come and inspect so that you are both satisfied and confident with any bids that you may place.

Once the hammer drops a contract is then created and you are obligated to proceed with the purchase.
