Silverstone Auctions aim to make the process of selling your vehicle or automobilia as easy and hassle free as possible.
We charge an entry fee of £250 plus VAT and sellers premium of only 5% plus VAT for all vehicles and £25 plus VAT and a sellers premium of 15% +VAT for all automobilia items.
Entry fees cover inclusion in the relevant auction catalogue showing your vehicle with a single full-colour picture and four or five descriptive bullet points and worldwide marketing of your vehicle.
The earlier you consign your vehicle into the sale the more marketing we are able to carry out on your behalf, increasing the interest in your vehicle.
Silverstone Auctions is a world-class, specialist auction house for the sale of classic cars, modern supercars, all types of competition cars, modern and historic motorcycles. To consign your vehicle to a sale please ensure you provide as much information as possible about the vehicle and its condition along with recent photographs.
Your enquiry will be assigned to a member of our specialist team who will contact you to discuss your entry.
Your vehicle will be presented to the valuations team for appraisal. We will discuss the value of your vehicle and the most appropriate auction to feature your vehicle in. If this meets your expectations and you would like to proceed, your consignor will visit you to view the vehicle and confirm the terms of sale.
You will need to arrange for the vehicle to be delivered to the auction venue. We will email instructions two weeks prior to the auction confirming the date, timings and directions, together with any access passes you may require. The vehicle should arrive in a presentable and saleable condition. If your item is deemed to require further cleaning/presentation you will be notified prior to any work being carried out. There will be charge deduction from the net sale proceeds.
For those sellers who require assistance with transportation we have a logistics partner, EM Rogers, who are fully experienced in transporting classic cars in the UK and across the world.
Please ensure all history files, documentation and V5c’s are delivered with the vehicle. Any private plates not included in the sale must be put on retention.
