… and I now wouldn’t sell any other way.

The April Burns & Co Classic and Collectable Car auction saw some very competitive bidding throughout the day, including on lot 30, the classic 1967 Holden HR Premier.
After some spirited bidding the hammer fell on this impressive turquoise sedan for the price of $45,278 (including buyer’s premium) leading to a happy seller (and we are sure buyer also). We spoke to the vendor post the auction to get his thoughts on the sale, the process from start to finish and why they chose Burns and Co, and this is what he said.

“I was considering selling my car and heard about the upcoming Holden Museum Auction and that Burns & Co were handling that. So I looked you up and went from there.The whole set up was brilliant, and everything was spotless right down to the floors. The marketing was great. The Video of the car with the music was great, and the photos were beautiful. Everything was really well done.

I actually watched the auction all day. It was very good to watch and when the car came up the whole family gathered around to watch. The auctioneering was brilliant. Everything that was said about the car was spot on, and it highlighted how good the car was, and helped me get a great result.

The staff were really good. Debbie was great at front office, she explained everything I needed to know, and made it all very smooth for me. And Anton got back every time I rang or had a question, and he also rang me on the day to make sure everything was ok.

I was a bit worried at first how things would go given this was the first time I have sold at auction. I have sold online before and it sometimes feels like people just come to have a free drive of your classic car. I was sick of the ‘tyre kickers’ and handling things this way so I decided to give Burns & Co a try. I am glad I did as this is the easiest way to do it, and I now wouldn’t sell any other way. I didn’t have to do anything, the car was towed there and left with the team, I got a great result, and everything went very smooth.

I would recommend Burns & Co to others no doubt. In fact I have another car I am now considering selling, and I am also looking at a few bikes I might like to buy in the upcoming Burns & Co motorcycle auction.” – Peter (April 2024)
