The Classic Car market differs a lot from others in many aspects. It has been a wise investment to buy a classic car in the last few decades and owning, rallying or racing one has become fashionable. A few people might be tempted to get into the market for these reasons alone. We do think that the reason for buying a classic car should be more than this.
By investing in a classic car, you do have the chance to obtain a part of history and take care of it for the following generation. The opportunity to drive or race a car in which people like Stirling Moss, Juan-Manuel Fangio, John Surtees and many have written history in, is beyond all description. Allowing us to own and experience a car like this is one of the many reasons for our passion.
The Classic Car business is very personal and as we deal with individual people, we do want to understand your needs and wishes in order to provide the best service possible. Most of our clients have been with us for a long period of time and we do like to establish long-term relationships.
We are the only dealer in the market to offer you a very discrete form of marketing your car, while maintaining a maximum range to potential clients. We always establish a personal contact to the clients, who are requesting detailed information on the cars on offer and only those with sincere interest are granted access.
We exclusively use professional photography, research missing parts of the car’s history – if necessary – and acquire pictures form well-established archives. Our commission rates are on par with our direct competitors – but certainly way below the one’s of leading auction houses.
As a matter of course, our marketing methods and rates are not rigid and can be adapted to your needs and discussed individually.
We do have an insight view on all the things happening and can help you to decide whether to buy, sell or hold.
Although we prefer the discrete form of marketing, we do know that situations can occur, where it is advisable to sell or buy at auction. We have worked on both sides and know all the pros and cons.
Although we do not maintain an in-house restoration business, we do have a vast network including the best workshops in the classic car scene and would be pleased to consult with or manage your restoration project. Through our work with one of the leading restoration companies, we do know the key aspects to keep in mind, while supervising your project.
Due to the growing involvement of several car manufacturers, the certification has become a crucial factor in valuing a historic car. We would be pleased to support you in the certification process. We always try to be as sensible as possible and focus on preservation of originality.
Transport and insurance
Selling of a car for us does not end with the handover of the keys. We gladly support you with the offer of professional and reliable transportation and insurance partners. Additionally, we are able to consult you regarding those services for cars that are already part of your collection.
Originality and history are two of the key factors in valuing a car. We have a great archive and work closely together with the factories in order to verify these aspects.
Our fees are very transparent and we only take a fee from the client who instructs us. This is one of the many reasons why we have been in this business since 1978.
Our private collection involves some of the most desirable classic cars and we have owned many more. So, we can tell you first-hand what it is like living with a particular classic car, driving it through the country side or winning a race in Monza with it.
Racing is our passion, we have raced many different cars and have been more successful than any other dealer. We know which car is eligible for which event or racing series and what it takes to get an invitation to some of the most prestigious events as well as helping you to get comfortable in your car.
