A NEW online community where enthusiasts across Europe can buy, sell and explore the world of collectable cars has just been launched.
The business is the brainchild of dealer and collector Edward Lovett and is supported by a team of passionate professionals including automotive journalist Chris Harris.
Collecting Cars is the only specialist online auction platform of its kind to source consignments from across Europe and to market cars throughout the continent. The process of buying and selling cars will be backed by industry-leading identity verification and payment security, to ensure a safe and seamless experience.
Core to the ethos of Collecting Cars will be immersive, multi-platform storytelling that takes its audience behind the scenes with fascinating cars, personalities and master craftspeople.
Founder and managing director Edward Lovett said: ‘We will deliver a safe, smart and simple online auction experience where sellers can have confidence in the bidding and buyers can have confidence in the cars.
‘We realise the value of every car, no matter how valuable it is – so we encourage anyone thinking about selling their car to contact us to discuss our offer.’
Chris Harris said: ‘Grazing classifieds has been my passion for more than 20 years. I can’t wait to see the fascinating machinery that will appear on Collecting Cars.’
The first auctions on the Collecting Cars platform will take place this spring. In the meantime, visitors can go to collectingcars.com to register their interest in consigning a car, or sign up to receive updates ahead of the full launch.
