Car enthusiasts have been buying and selling cars on PistonHeads for more than two decades through our classified section - it’s one of the main reasons why so many of us are here. After all, our reputation was partly built on the warm and fuzzy feeling that comes with being able to buy a car that has been properly looked after by a fellow enthusiast. That’s still true today, whether you’re in the market for a shed or a supercar.
Of course, in 25 years, the market has changed wildly. There are more places to buy and sell a car than ever before. Well, we’re changing, too: 2023 will see PistonHeads launch a brand-new auction platform of our own making, one that complements our existing marketplace and the people that help make it unique.
Our motivation has not changed. We want more people to find and buy their dream car on PistonHeads. To help you do just that, we’ll bring you the very best curated auction listings from across the nation, handpicked by our crack consignment team and available for you to bid on around the clock.
For anyone with a dream car to sell, PistonHeads auctions will be easy to use and free to list. And don’t worry - you’ll receive 100 per cent of the hammer price. We’ll also help to arrange photography, write a glowing description, and manage your listing from start to finish until your car is sold. Listings will be promoted on the UK’s number one premium and performance marketplace for seven days before your auction goes live, followed by seven days of frenzied bidding. So contact our consignment team today to discuss an estimate for your car.
Potential buyers will be able to arrange viewings and ask probing questions in a Q&A section on each listing. A six per cent (plus VAT) buyer’s premium will be charged on top of the winning bid, so please bear that in mind when you’re crunching numbers. We’ll then put you in touch with the seller so you can arrange collection of your new pride and joy.
When is all this happening, you ask? Well, rest assured there isn’t long to wait now. We’ll be announcing further details at our 25th Anniversary Party at Bicester Heritage on August 12th. If you'd like to play an integral part in PistonHeads history, you can contact the consignment team to discuss how we can help sell your car today.
