Here at Tom Hardman Limited, we fully appreciate that several very important decisions need to be made by one thinking about selling his or her vintage car. The first (and often hardest!) is to decide whether to sell in the first place. Secondly, the method of sale needs to be considered; whether privately, at auction or through a specialist dealer. Thirdly - if the decision is made to use a specialist dealer - who is best placed to deliver an auspicious result? Given all this, it is hardly surprising that the path to sale can be fraught with an understandable amount of trepidation.
What we, as both dealers and vintage car enthusiasts, are able to offer is a significant black book of contacts and current in-depth market knowledge with regards to your particular car and marque. In addition, the beauty of working with a specialist dealer, rather than an auction house, is that an owner has far more control over the price that the car sells for and, therefore, their eventual return.
What makes Tom Hardman Limited stand out from the other dealers? We believe that our dedication and tenacity are second to none. We never rest on our laurels, despite the success that we have enjoyed in recent years. We believe that we are only as good as our last sale and treat every car on our books with the same level of attention in finding it a new home, which is sadly not always the case elsewhere. We work very hard at marketing our cars. With electronic brochures and comprehensively researched histories for every car, along with the more general routes to market via advertising in the high-profile historic car magazines and sponsorship of some of the premier speed events, we have every area well covered.
We are very proud of our showroom, located just outside the charming market town of Skipton in North Yorkshire. This area is well-served by the national road and rail network whilst also being close to Manchester airport for the company’s international visitors. We are willing to talk about a number of sales solutions and ideas that any potential client may have and will always hold our customers’ wishes at the centre of any negotiation with third parties. We look forward to hearing from you.
