The Buyers are too!

A flight to Newcastle, an auction and a new Sandman. Hear about the journey of one of the buyers from the February Classic Car auction.

I had a great and pleasant experience, I would absolutely purchase through Burns and Co again or recommend you to others.”
The February Burns & Co Classic and Collectable Car auction saw some very competitive bidding throughout the day, including on lot 54, an often sought after HZ Sandman Panel Van situated in our Newcastle / Central Coast facility.
In among the crowd of floor bidders at our Bayswater showroom was a bidder by the name of Troy who has been seeking a Sandman for a while and was very keen to get his hands on this particular Sandman. Having flown up to Newcastle to view the car, and having never bought a car at auction, it’s fair to say he was a little bit nervous.
Once the lot came up though Troy jumped into the bidding headfirst and came out as the successful bidder and the proud new owner of a Sandman. We spoke to Troy post the auction to get his thoughts on the sale, the process from start to finish and his thoughts on purchasing with Burns and Co, and this is what he said.

“I first found out about Burns & Co from the Internet and on Facebook. I have been looking to buy a Sandman for a while and so have been keeping an eye out and spotted this one on Facebook.I have never bid at Auction before, so I was very nervous and didn’t take it all in, but I found it awesome. It was like going to a car show, just watching on was entertaining.

Once I had seen the auction on Facebook I went to the website and viewed the images and videos and went through all of the information which was great. But the best thing for me was the service I got from Michael when I went to view the car. All the Burns & Co staff were really good. They were really friendly and welcoming, and they made everything easy and smooth. It was all done for you. But I was really impressed with Michael (Saide) when I flew to Newcastle to view the car. He picked me up from the airport and answered all my questions, and even gave me advice on things to do in Newcastle while I waited for my flight home.

I had a great and pleasant experience, I would absolutely purchase through Burns and Co again or recommend you to others.”
