The Motor Market at Bicester Heritage was deemed a great success in April and will be open again for August. This unique concept will enable individuals wishing to sell their treasured pre-1990 vintage, classic or modern classic vehicle the opportunity to purchase a pitch and market their machine to an instant audience of thousands of like-minded motoring enthusiasts on the day. Those in the market can meet the owner, inspect the vehicle and purchase their next set of wheels in one swift transaction, improving the classic car buying experience. In order to be a part of The Motor Market you will need to purchase a Motor Market Vehicle Pass in addition to your event entry ticket.
Hagerty International, the classic car insurance specialist, will host their third live Valuation Arena at the Sunday Scramble, supported by H&H Classic Auctions, Classic Cars magazine and the online classified site ClassicCarsForSale.co.uk following on from their success in April and May. Valuation experts will be on hand to inspect and photograph vehicles, swiftly providing the owner with a valuation certificate and thus ensuring that your vehicles are properly valued and therefore properly insured.
Entry into Hagerty’s Valuation Arena is only available to people attending the Sunday Scramble at Bicester. The Valuation will cost £15, all of which will go charity, and each valuation will include a certificate and goody bag of classic extras from all participating partners. Owners are urged to bring as much information on their vehicle as possible for the valuation experts to inspect.
The Specialists will be opening doors to their workshops, showrooms and storage facilities and would be delighted to meet you.
