The number of entries has continued to increase and it is important that both of us are happy with the valuation before we proceed. This ensures that we are able to offer the best selection of cars at the right price. So, firstly we need to be able to view the car either in person or by email. We need information such as service history or other documents, has it been in long-term single/family ownership, does it have its original buff log and or a current V5, is it MoT'd, a description of its general condition both of the exterior and interior, is it running, does it have an original handbook, etc. and what sort of price you are hoping to achieve.
How soon can I drop my car off at the auction?
Usually 2 to 3 weeks following the completion of the previous auction . We have enough undercover space to securely store it for you.
Can ACA collect my vehicle?
We can collect and deliver cars that are to be sold and bought at an ACA auction. Our transport charges are very competitive so please call the in-house team for a quote on 01553 771881. Transportation within a 200 miles radius can be handled in-house utilising either our five car transporter. We usually try to combine deliveries in order to keep costs to a minimum. Please call us for a quote.
What about longer UK delivery options?
We endeavour to collect as many vehicles ourselves as possible but occasionally we are unable to do this competitively for single collections from an area that we are currently travelling to. Transportation over 200 miles is normally arranged through NG Logistics, contact Neil Gaskins on 07909 520579. NG Logistics provides a very efficient, professional and competitive service and have transported many classics for us whether collecting them to be offered for auction or delivering to purchasers afterwards. Neil is always present at our classic sales and able to provide you with an approximate delivery date and quote at the time.
Can ACA send my vehicle overseas to Europe?
Many of our overseas customers use Car-Port, based in Germany. They are able to combine individual collections with the larger collections and travel to the UK 2/3 times each week. Their website address is www.car-port-online.de and email: firstname.lastname@example.org. For enquiries telephone Hardy on +49 (0)172 4 51 11 14 or +49 (0)431 54 89 76.

Can ACA deliver my vehicle internationally?
If this service is required, we can deliver your vehicle(s) to a designated UK port as soon as shipping has been booked. It is possible to deliver single cars to mainland Europe.
When do I receive the funds from the sale of my vehicle?
Assuming that your vehicle has been paid in full, cheques are posted first class on the third Monday, which is eleven working days, after the auction has been held.
Can ACA store my vehicle?
Storage before and after each classic car auction is free of charge for two weeks. All vehicles are stored under cover with full colour digital CCTV. Please note: Storage as from the June 2020 classic auction will be very limited and it is requested that you organise collection of your vehicle by the following Wednesday in order to arrange parking for the ongoing auctions to operate. Your assistance in this matter is really appreciated.
