Dorset Vintage & Classic Auctions (DVCA) Covid 19 Status

In view of the current restrictions, which will prevent us offering our particular brand of specialist public auctions for historic vehicles and automobilia held at Henstridge Airfield, DVCA proposes the following measures to maintain sales on behalf of our clients and continued enthusiasm for all we enjoy in handling such vehicles.

Motor cars and motorcycles may now be entered For Sale by Auction but with the caveat ‘unless previously sold’.

It may be some while before we can produce an actual auction sale as such. Thus instead of waiting for a declared auction date, vehicles will initially be offered for sale by private treaty, i.e. they may be purchased at any time before the next stated auction sale by agreement between buyer and seller by negotiation carried out through DVCA. This brings each vehicle on to the market straight away and it will be marketed as such for the remainder of the current crisis.

In the event of a sale being negotiated through DVCA, our fees will be charged at the rate of 10% +VAT

Once the threat of this virus is declared over, the vendors of any remaining vehicles will have the option of entering their vehicles For Sale by Auction, and they will appear on the appropriate section of our website and catalogued in the normal way. An entry fee to cover these additional expenses will be payable as for any DVCA sale and commission charged as normal.

We are fortunate in having workshop facilities on site via our sister firm Unicorn Motor Co. Pre-sale work can be carried out by agreement to make sure the vehicle is displayed to its best advantage.

Clearly viewing at our Stalbridge premises must be carried out in accordance with strict government guidelines to maintain maximum safety to all involved. A prospective purchaser will be asked to make an appointment and certain procedures will be initiated as necessary to preserve social distancing and hygiene.

DVCA are committed to providing a professional approach to this problem, allowing in our case for the fact that not all our clients have the technical advantages in equipment, or indeed knowledge to operate the same in a confident manner. Much can go adrift in cyber space oriented systems and we prefer that you have a human being at your service throughout.

DVCA are happy to arrange properly prescribed transport for your vehicle and look forward to taking care of it within the constraints of the current situation. Please feel free to contact us at your convenience.
