Founded nearly a decade ago by former driver Sam Fretwell, Classicwise is an expert in the repair, restoration, brokerage and storage of classic cars.
Growing up in the 1990s around his father’s European sports car import business, owner and founder Sam’s childhood was immersed in the world of classic cars – the smell of upholstery, the shine of freshly polished paintwork and the sound of engines firing up. He went on to become one of the youngest people ever to qualify as an authorised MOT tester, opening his first business in Grimsby in 2011. Having founded Classicwise in 2012, Sam’s passion and knowledge is now dedicated to preserving and continuing the heritage of these magnificent vehicles.
We pride ourselves on being as passionate about the preservation and enjoyment of classic cars as our clients, and over the years Classicwise has expanded to offer everything a classic car love could want in one place. From specialised servicing, repairs and restoration (whether fixing a small paint scratch or creating a new bespoke interior), to brokering classic cars from the early 1900s to the 1990s. There’s also our Classic Hideaway – a fully monitored, climate-controlled storage facility tucked away in a discreet location.
Whether you’re looking to repair a much-loved vehicle, start your dream refurbishment or invest in your very first classic car – we look forward to seeing you soon.
