Entries close: Friday 14th June
We are currently inviting vendors to consign their vehicles. Our team is spread across the UK and have a wide knowledge of all classic and vintage vehicles. Where necessary, we will arrange an appointment to advise on value and guide you through how to sell at auction.
The earlier that vehicles are consigned for auction, the more they can take advantage of our pre-sale marketing campaigns.
Free pre-sale storage - We own and permanently reside on our 10-acre site, which is CCTV and Chubb alarm monitored 24-hours a day therefore we can take delivery of your vehicles a considerable time before the auction if necessary. If storage is needed after the auction, charges may apply.
For further information or to arrange a no obligation, free appraisal of your vehicle, please contact Toby Service on 01568 611122 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Brightwells - A business built on recommendation
"I feel I owe you and most especially Matthew my thanks for the result today. To be on the catalogue cover and then centre stage in the room gave, I think, an impetus to the car's value as perceived by the crowd. From my point of view a better than expected result and all down to your efforts"
"A quick line from Chris and myself to say many thanks for dealing with the sale of the Austin and Allis B. on Wednesday. I thought the tractor write up was particularly good. It is always a pleasure to attend your sale days – no one else operates quite like Brightwells!"
15th May Sale Report
Records tumble as 78% of entries sell and an AC Greyhound tops the lot at another packed Brightwells sale
The May sale always draws a huge crowd at Brightwells as enthusiasts flock to the Leominster saleroom to compete for the chance to buy a new set of wheels to enjoy over the summer season. An unusually large assortment of classics were on offer ranging from a 1924 Amilcar CC to a 2005 Aston Martin DB9, the dazzling variety of interesting machines attracting bidders from as far afield as Hong Kong, America and Australia. By the end of a long afternoon, 146 of the 186 vehicles on offer had successfully changed hands to give an impressive sale rate of 78% for a total of almost £1.4m.
Top seller of the day was a beautifully mellowed 1962 AC Greyhound, one of only 83 made and only six with the AC engine which had attracted a huge amount of pre-sale interest from all over the world. Quickly flying past its £40k - £50k estimate it was finally hammered away for £82,500 and is now destined for a new home in Tasmania. This sets a new auction record for the model, the last Greyhound publicly offered in recent times being a Bristol-engined version that was also sold by Brightwells in 2013 for £52,800. The price realised is over £10k more than the Hagerty Insurance valuation for a Greyhound in concours condition so their figures will now require some recalibration. Even at this price you could still call it a good buy when you consider that the best of the mechanically identical Ace and Aceca models are now fetching £250k+ and £150k+ respectively...READ MORE
