Spicers Auctioneers Classic Car, Motorcycle & Automobilia Auctions

This is a new area for the company where we are drawing on our saleroom managers life long interest in classic cars and motorcycles. Andrew, when he worked for Bonhams, sourced many interesting vehicles including a collection of cars that realised just over £5 million. He was also the auctioneer for automobilia at the companies flagship motorcycle auctions at Stafford and has taken charity auctions at the TT Riders association annual dinner at the Birmingham motorcycle Museum. Our intention is to become the leading North of England auctioneer in this field and have teamed up with Sledmere House outside of Driffield, as venue for these sales.
