What our clients say...



Just want to thank you all for your service. You have made selling our car the easiest and stress free way. We wish you all well and hope to visit one day.


Just wanted to thank you for your positive remarks about my old Fordson BB Pratts Tanker on Bangers & Cash. I did this as a tribute to my Gramp in 2002/3. He worked for Pratts then Esso for 40 years. 


Please say a big thank you to the staff at Mathewsons. Every one was so kind when we visited. 


Just a quick email to say thank-you to Jack. My wife and I were in Pickering at the start of last month, from Mexico where we live, which was my first time back in the UK for 20 years (having been born and bred in Beverley). As the weather was a bit cold and wet, I persuaded my wife to have a short trek to see the now world famous Mathewsons Pickering showroom. After a good walk from the centre of Pickering, we arrived and were met by Jack, who kindly let us into the showroom to have a good look around and a chat.

As we were thinking of going to Thorneton-le-Dale, I asked Jack about how to get there by bus as we didn’t have a car. Without hesitating, he said “hang on a minute” and came back with a set of keys and offered to drive us down! I can’t express how grateful we were, given the miserable weather, and I can attest that Jack is a real testament to the whole family and the company, he even told us to tell the staff that he had said we were allowed up to the other garage to see cars and bikes most members of the public aren’t allowed to see, which was great and, as icing on the cake, we met a couple of members of the TV production team and had a good chat.

So thanks again and it was a pleasure to meet everyone there.


Just a short note to say thank you and the team for the professional way you dealt with the sale of my beloved Jaguar. It had been in the family for a long time and to entrust it to you was a big step for us.

The video that accompanied the advert was so comprehensive, it certainly gave people a thorough insight into the car. I was so impressed with the way the team presented the car and latterly the auction itself within which sold the car was exhilerating.

Also, the transport you arranged to get the car to the auction was a big bonus.

I would certainly recommend the experience and naturally your company to others.


You recently sold my Wolseley in Auction. I am writing to thank you all for your help. It was so easy and such a smooth process from you collecting my car to receiving my cheque. When I saw the video of my car, I was very impressed. I consider what you charged to be excellent value for money. Thank you all once again.


We would like to thank you for the effort and care put into selling our family 'heirloom'. When we visited Thornton-Le-Dale, Derek made time for us and was immediately fully conversant with our  equirements. He understood all features of the car and gave a very realistic (slightly pessimistic) estimation of its worth.

Although he was delayed, Paul and his young daughter could not have been more pleasant. He loaded the car onto a very small space on his vehicle with great care and the minimum of fuss. 

At the online auction, David worked hard and did not rush the sale. He allowed time for interested parties to consider and submit their bids.

All in All, dealing with Family Mathewson and their Staff proved a most pleasant and rewarding experience.

John and Angela

Well happy with the mail order, quality of the items, the website and fast, kind service! 

Mr Jones

Just wanted to thank you for the Bangers & Cash programme about Iris and Mike's car. It was so lovely to see Iris talking about Mike and the car and it was done in such a lovely way. 


Just a word of thanks to yourself and your staff for your help in marketing our ride. May I say it is a rare pleasure to meet such a cheerful and enthusiastic team. Although we were unsuccessful in finding a buyer for the ride, I was not disappointed with the experience.


Many thanks for the excellent service whiles selling my MG B GT. Your care and professionalism is much appreciated. Particular thanks to Paul for fitting us in for collection. Jack made a lovely video of the car which I am sure helped with the final result. I have never failed to recommend you to others when they are selling a car. Thanks again!


Just to say 'thank you' for collecting and selling my Jowett Javelin safely. I would always be happy to recommend Mathewsons Auctions as being very helpful and professional.


We should like to say a big thank you to you and all your staff. We came to your auction in July and purchased a Honda 400-4 Motorcycle. You were all extremely helpful and made the experience a good one. Also thank you very much for forwarding the old MOT's and V5. The restoration to get the bike running has now begun.

John & Jayne

Thanks so much for getting the best price for my two cars today, we are very pleased with the results! It's been a long day for you all but I've watched the auction from 9am and loved every minute.


Just to say that I visited today all the way from Cumbria and want to thank the staff for being so friendly and helpful - you have some amazing cars in and I can't wait until auction day! May I add Derek that you have the best job in the world!!


We would just like to thank everyone at Mathewsons who helped us and guided us through our first classic car auction experience. Really friendly and helpful advice throughout.


Can I just send out a big thank you for all you did to get our 3 vehicles the best prices in your auction. My dad was overjoyed - so a big, big thank you for helping us. Although dad has recently passed on, he wanted us to thank you call very much and wish you the best.
