Founded in 2016 and formerly known as ‘The Market’, Bonhams|Cars Online was the first - and remains the foremost - dedicated classic and collectible car auction platform in the UK and now has an established and growing presence across Europe and the USA.
Evolving from the Patina digital vehicle history start-up, The Market was born of a realisation that a combination of digital technology, the best photography and high-quality journalist descriptions could create an experience that puts more and better information than ever before in front of buyers and sellers alike.
Today, BonhamsICars Online provides the highest transparency at the lowest cost for buyers and sellers, making the buying and selling of classic and collector vehicles as simple, secure, efficient and rewarding as possible.
Since its acquisition in 2020, Bonhams|Cars Online has grown exponentially, achieving an industry-leading sale rate of over 90%.
Headquartered in the UK and with locations across Europe and US, our Oxfordshire Headquarters benefit from a 14,000 square-foot facility that allows sellers to take advantage of our premium Concierge Service, which is superior to anything offered by the competition.
With a passionate focus on customer service and a desire to improve transparency in the automotive sector, our team is on hand to make sure that the selling or buying of your cherished classic vehicle is as easy, transparent and successful as possible. This is reflected in our consistent 4.6 Star Trustpilot rating – higher than any other car auction house in UK
With the experience, reach, contacts and knowledge of Bonhams 1793 Limited behind it, Bonhams|Cars Online is the best worldwide solution for anyone looking to buy or sell a classic car quickly, safely and effortlessly.
