Welcome to Southam's Classic Car Warehouse
Over the last 30 years we have established a reputation for high quality
cars and first class customer service.
Working exclusively by appointment on a one to one basis our company offers
a bespoke, personal service to our customers. We have found that once people
have dealt with us they tend to deal with us again and again, many of our
sales are to people who have bought from us previously or recommended us to
their friends and colleagues, in fact we have generations of families, their
friends and associates, all benefiting from our experience..
We are very different from other car dealers and operate our business in a
very different way.
our cars are independently sourced by ourselves, the majority through marque enthusiasts and collectors.
This method of sourcing vehicles obviously involves a great deal of
travelling but experience has taught us that the standard of cars we like to
deal with tend to be in the hands of enthusiasts and not available through the motor trade. The standard of our stock
- and the way we treat our customers - sets us apart from other dealers.
Many dealers are happy to buy neglected cars through "the trade" and clean
them up for a quick profit, we do not.
We travel the country searching for cars which have always been looked after and cherished by
their owners. We find this far more gratifying than
the fun and games we have encountered with other car dealers who seem solely
interested in their profit and have no real interest in their cars.
All our vehicles are HPI checked as a matter of course before we buy
them to ensure the vehicle has no hidden history - none of our cars have
ever been involved in accidents, none of our cars have been stolen and none of our cars have finance repayments
outstanding. We will happily
supply an HPI report with every vehicle we sell.
Above all else we are genuine car enthusiasts and we thoroughly enjoy
meeting like minded people, we share your passion for cars and the sheer
enjoyment of driving.
We hope this passion is reflected in the cars which we supply and
the manner in which we conduct our business.
For us, and for our customers, motoring is far more than just transport.
See what our
customers have to say about us on our
exclusively by appointment on a one to one basis and in so doing we can offer
a bespoke, personal service to our customers. We are totally down to earth
genuine car enthusiasts, we thoroughly enjoy meeting and talking to like
minded people and strive to make the entire buying process as pleasant and
enjoyable as possible.
We do not employ
pressure" sales techniques and we never push people into making snap
decisions. We work on the basis that if you like our car - and you are
happy with the way you are treated - then you will give us your business.
Having said that, it is very rare for someone to travel to view our cars
and not buy, in fact we have far more difficulty buying cars then we do
selling them and very often have several people chasing the same car.
We were pioneers of
internet car sales and these days many people choose to buy directly
from this website and have the car delivered to their door without ever
travelling to see us ! We have sent cars all over the
country and indeed, all over the world. We have sold cars to Australia,
New Zealand, South Africa, Cyprus and all over Europe, all purchased on
trust from this website. The internet has transformed the way we do
business and given us access to a worldwide market.
consider taking your existing car in part exchange however please do contact us
to check that we are interested in your car before you make the journey to see
advertised prices are for the car fully prepared, ready to use and enjoy, no
car leaves here with a known problem or foreseeable imminent failure. It
generally takes approximately one week to prepare each vehicle, sales are
usually secured by a deposit and the balance paid prior to collection once the
vehicle is ready. If the vehicle needs any "special order" parts or at very
busy times the preparation may take longer but we will always keep you well
we have used Carl Fish for all vehicle preparation. Carl has
invested in state of the art diagnostic equipment and has the specialist tools and
experience necessary to identify and rectify any problems. At busy times we
have also enlisted respected marque specialists Bowling Ryan who have proved
to be excellent and very knowledgeable.
through the service records and carrying out a visual inspection and road
test, Carl thoroughly checks each car to ensure there are no existing problems
and no imminent repairs.
All our cars
are supplied with a new MOT certificate with no advisory notices.
Interesting Cars Always Wanted - Commission Sales Undertaken
If you have an interesting prestige, sports or classic car to sell with
low mileage and excellent history please do feel free to contact us. If you
require an immediate sale we will do our best to agree a figure for outright
purchase. We do
not work off price guides and will not insult you with silly "trade"
valuations. We will also beat the "We Buy Any Car" type companies
by a comfortable margin.
Alternatively, we would be more than happy to
undertake the sale of your vehicle on a commission basis. Most people
looking for a new car have an existing vehicle to part exchange and
require finance on their new car, they also like the peace of mind that
comes from buying from a reputable dealer. This can make selling a car
privately quite difficult, particularly with vehicles of a higher value.
Your car will be fully prepared by ourselves
and professionally marketed on five different websites alongside our own
vehicles, until sold. We can also offer other dealer services to
potential buyers, including finance, warranty and buying their part
With these points in mind, we can often realise a higher selling price and a quicker
sale than you would achieve on your own and completely relieve you of all the hassle of
selling the car and clearing payment.
regularly deal with bereavement sales and can assure you of our utmost
discretion and understanding at these times.
All our cars are prepared using
