Dear Sam and Tom.

Thank you both for your time and patience when buying my TR5. I found you and Tom very genuine and it was lovely not being under any pressure when looking at the car , also being able to look through the extensive folder at my leisure without either of you hovering over me.

I feel confident that should I need you for anything you will be there for me. If I had to score you it would be a 100% pass.

Recommending your company to others will be a pleasure. Further more – Following the purchase of my TR5 i encountered an untimely oil leak from the engine

Just a quick message to let you know how impressed I am with your customer service. Many companies could learn much from you and Tom.

I and many friends could not believe that you would come to Somerset to collect the car and fix an oil leak to then return it to me again – More than a 300 mile round trip!

I shall gladly recommend your company to anyone with complete confidence.

Thank you so much.




What can I say, I have just picked up my 996 C4S….. what a car. I talked with Sam for about 4 weeks leading up to the deal as this was my first Porsche, he talked through all my questions and made me feel at ease, Sam is a real enthusiast who really cares about his cars and his customers. The car was absolutely immaculate and just as described. If you want to deal with an honest car enthusiast who just happens to sell cars Classic Wise is the place to go. Thanks Sam and see you in a few years for a 993 (funds permitted)


Hi Sam

I’d like to thank you for your integrity, patience and understanding throughout our recent transaction of the 993 purchase.

I found our dealings to be professional with a relaxed approach which is exactly how I run my own business.

Despite my being in Glasgow, you made the whole process easy from start to finish – even accounting for a late, late issue my end which you handled with much understanding.

The car is a joy, it was a real pleasure talking with you and I’m sure our paths will cross again.

You’re a top man and i wish you continued success.





I just wanted to thank you for your professionalism and help in the purchase of the Peerless.

I have dealt with many people in the industry over the years and can certainly attest to the fact our transaction has been one of the best experiences I’ve had. When purchasing internationally sight unseen the ability and importance of the sellers integrety is paramount.

Thanks again hope to deal with you again!



I want to thank Sam for all his recent help! It was his interest, support and advice that really reassured me, and consequently led me to buy a specific car that he recommended for me.

I was actively searching for the right Sprite, as it needed to be a very special present to mark my 50th birthday, and it was also to be my first classic car purchase!

One cold day in early January, I actually called into Classicwise for the first time to view another fully restored, slightly younger Austin-Healey Sprite, but after explaining to Sam what I was really looking for, he then took me to a local workshop to view an original US imported Sprite. It was destined to reach his sales showroom quite soon, once minor works had been completed. Well it was love at first sight, a true cracker indeed! Consequently, we agreed a deal there and then, for the car to be reserved just for me. Sam proceeded to ensure the car was finished to his high standards, and he got it all ready for my wife to drive it back to our home in Derbyshire. Within 2 weeks from that first viewing date, she arrived in my garage at home.

I feel I have made a good investment, and we will love and cherish this Sprite for many years. I hope she brings us a lot of happiness on our intended trips around the Peak District and beyond..

Maybe it was meant to be, but Sam was the match-maker that made it all happen. Thanks again Sam!


Dear Sam

Just to let you know how delighted I am with my Mercedes 560 SEC, purchased from you last week. The car is exactly as described and I have no hesitation recommending you to my friends and will contact you next time I am looking for a car.

All the best.

Classicwise sold my entire collection! – Triumph TR4A IRS, Morris 1000 traveller, Triumph stag, Mk1 Ford Escort Lotus twincam

A fantastic service provided throughout!

I had decided to retire after a life working in the vehicle repair trade and approached Sam at Classicwise to sell my collection of cars that I had built up over the years. Sam couldn’t have helped me any more after completing a sale on each one of my vehicles and returned me more than what I expected. He even kept me informed when interest was shown on each car and each time I visited the Classicwise showroom it was perfectly prepared and each one of my cars looked stunning!.

I will definitely use Classicwise again if I have a vehicle to sell. Whether it be classic or modern!


I first approached Classicwise with eyes to sell my BMW outright. This idea was changed when “Sam” informed me that he would be able to return me more money if I was to sell the car on “sale or return/Brokerage”. A deal was struck for Classicwise to take the vehicle and to advertise it on my behalf. The advert was accurate a VERY professional and in the matter of days they had found a buyer!

Highly recommended and I would use them again!

This is the second time I have used Classicwise to sell my vehicle and I wouldn’t think to go anywhere else. Again my vehicle was put on “sale or return” the advert was written perfectly and the photography on the advert was outstanding. Within 2 weeks Classicwise found a buyer for my vehicle and secured a deal.

If you are looking to sell your vehicle then be sure to contact Classicwise Associates!


Recently purchased an Alfa Spider from Classicwise Associates. The whole process was made very easy. Sam was kind enough to open up especially so I could go along and see it and after a short test drive a deal was struck. Again, nothing too much trouble and Sam even picked me up and gave me a lift to collect the car. I’ve since been enjoying the thrill of open top motoring in the recent spell of glorious weather! When it comes time to move on to something else, I’ll definitely go back to Classicwise.


I recently purchased a Triumph TR4a from Classicwise Associates and am very happy to recommend the team to any potential purchaser. The advertisement was accurate and more importantly any issues I was concerned about were quickly rectified in a up most professional way. I have not had any problems afterwards, so the experience has been excellent.


I recently purchased a Mercedes-Benz 1985 230 ce from The Classicwise Collection. Sam The owner of the company was kind enough to pick me up from the train
station in the above vehicle. We had a test drive and concluded business on the day. I have bought many used cars over the years and found the service I
received form Classicwise to be second to none. The car is pristine, the log book and service history was presented in a similarly superb and comprehensive
condition. Sam has a great knowledge of his cars and a good deal of experience in the used car trade. It can often be risky buying used cars especially if they
are of advanced years. The car I bought had been lovingly restored by Classicwise and their mechanics. I was informed and clearly shown all the
work that had been carried out including many past clean MOT reports. The deal I did was part exchange and my old car was transported from Manchester by The
Classicwise truck, which was very convenient for me. The Classicwise Collection in my opinion are an excellent example of a independent business run by experts
and enthusiasts and as a person that has owned and run their own specialist business for over 20 years I recognise the quality of product and service. If
you are in the market for a quality used classic car I would highly recommend The Classicwise Collection.


It was a leap of faith to purchase a vehicle some 5000 miles away, sight unseen. Sam and Classicwise disclosed every detail of the vehicle and arranged for overseas delivery, all the while with superb communication and customer service at every step of the way.
The experience of two generations of dealing classic cars were very evident… true professionals.


I recently purchased a Left Hand Drive Porsche 911 through Classicwise. This was not straightforward as I live in Spain. On first talking to Sam I found him knowledgeable, personable and very willing to help.He described the car thoroughly and honestly and sent some detailed photos. I decided to take a chance,booked an hotel and a flight and flew over. Sam met us promptly at our
hotel and drove us to his premises. The car was presented in immaculate condition and we were allowed to put it up on a ramp to give it a “once over”.Sam then let us free on an unaccompanied test drive. The car was everything and more and after a very pleasant and agreeable negotiation a deal was struck on a handshake. I flew back to Spain to await delivery. However there was a fly in the ointment and this is where Sam was exceptional. I had agreed to had the seats retrimmed and through no fault of Sams and despite his very best efforts the trimmer let us both down badly and things did not go according to plan. Sam kept me up to date throughout and we had no time to rectify matters as the transporter was on its way and would have been costly to cancel. Sam and I came to a very amicable arrangement and I would not hesitate to recommend him highly. He is honest, trustworthy and a rarity these days, a true gentleman.


Classicwise have recently sold my Porsche Cayman S. Sam provided an excellent service, collecting the car from my home address, promptly informed of any interest and ultimately sold it within just a few days. I will definitely use Classicwise in the future


I found using Classicwise an easy, risk free and stress free way of selling my beloved Mercedes. I no longer see the logic in going through the stress of selling vehicles myself as “Sam” was willing to do everything from collecting my car with their purpose built transporter to storing the vehicle in their high profile and secure showroom until a sale was completed. Would definitley recommend.

BROKERAGE CAR: 1929 Dodge Senior Landau Twin mount Saloon

Classicwise have recently sold my beloved 1929 Dodge Senior car having stored and looked after it for a few months prior to finding a buyer. Sam provided an excellent service from the time he picked up the car to the time it was sold. A great job well done.


I found using The Classicwise Collection a fabulous way to sell my beloved classic car. I simply delivered the car to them, agreed a selling valuation and our mutual expectation, a commission structure and they did the rest. They stored the car and every time I went past the showroom the car was prepared spotlessly. When they
