4th March 2017 – Historics at Brooklands.
Buyers at Historics’ first classic car auction of 2017 were enthused by the option to bid backed by pre-arranged finance facilities provided by Classic & Sports Finance- the UK’s leading classic car finance specialist.
Classic & Sports Finance were on site for both of the preview days and for the auction , working with the team at Historics to provide expert advice to potential buyers.
Classic & Sports Finance received a number of enquiries in the weeks running up to the auction through the classic car finance calculator which they developed specifically for Historics’ online catalogue. Activity increased as the auction drew closer but the Classic & Sports Finance team were genuinely surprised by the response at the auction.
Rob Johnson, Director of Classic & Sports Finance said:
“Vistors and bidders at Historics were incredibly receptive to the idea of financing their auction purchases and we were able to obtain finance approval for a number of customers to bid who had approached us during the preview. Several of those were successful in their bidding and all the paperwork was completed and cars collected by their new owners within days of the auction. This has been a very exciting initiative for both Classic & Sports Finance and Historics and we look forward to working with them on more successful auctions in the future.”
Historics’ Auction Director, Edward Bridger-Stille, commented:
“After an extremely buoyant year, we are delighted to start 2017 by further broadening our service to our clients through this financial offering in partnership with the much-respected Classic & Sports Finance.
“Breaking new ground by becoming the first specialist auction house in our sector to hold its own FCA limited permission is a good indication of our forward-thinking philosophy, in the interests of our clients.”
