Live online auctions allow interested parties to purchase the vehicle of their choice from the comfort of their own home. We offer the opportunity for interested parties to view vehicles via a private, pre-arranged viewing (dependant on government guidelines regarding Covid-19) at a central location which is fully equipped to show your vehicle at its best and allow a full inspection. All viewings are carried out with a member of our experienced team present to ensure that any queries can be answered and to protect our vendors interests.
Potential buyers can bid live via telephone or online bidding or can place commission bids.
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 send you the terms of sale to sign.
We charge a cataloguing fee of £250 plus VAT and sellers commission of only 4% plus VAT for motor vehicles and £25 plus VAT and a sellers commission of 15% +VAT for automobilia items.
The cataloguing fee covers photography, script writing, video, worldwide marketing and storage of your vehicle in a secure location.
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.
You will need to arrange for the vehicle to be delivered to our central viewing location prior to the sale as agreed with your consignor.
The vehicle should arrive in a presentable and saleable condition. If your vehicle 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.
