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.
