H&H Sales Limited
H&H Classic Auctions is dynamically dedicated to the historic collector motor car market and they are the largest specialist auction house of historic motor cars in Europe. Simon Hope (pictured left) and Mark Hamilton (pictured right), felt strongly that the established auction houses were not serving the classic motor car customer adequately, and launched H&H Classic Auctions Limited in 1993. As Directors and long-term classic motor car enthusiasts, they felt that the high commissions and other charges levied did not equate to the standard of service delivered. Using a combination of experience of the people, the motor cars and the market and upon their in-depth knowledge of the auction industry, both Simon and Mark were convinced that they could provide a better all round service at a vastly reduced cost The H&H ethos still runs true today and they have been proven to be a major 'thorn' in the Establishment's side. They have offered some of the world's best motor cars, achieving world record prices in the process, and they still offer to both buyers and sellers a standard of service that is unrivalled in the classic motor car auction market place - it is just coincidence that it also happens to be considerably cheaper. Their Buxton Grade II listed venue of the Pavilion Gardens is now an established part of the Classic Motor Car scene. Not only have they added London auctions to their repertoire at Syon Park, Kempton Park Racecourse and Olympia, they have also added Stoneleigh Park in February 2004/5, Cheltenham Racecourse, Shepton Mallett and The National Motorcycle Museum. But don't think that they are only interested in motor cars as they have added Automobilia and Motorcycles to their never ending list of successes. As hands-on enthusiasts, Simon and Mark vigorously support the classic motor car movement in all its forms including historic motorsport. Simon has raced his unique 1951 Pierce MGF2 in VSCC, HGPCA, many International events and has been at the Goodwood Revival on four occasions. He also raced the 1956 Lotus XI in events all over Europe including the Gentleman Drivers historic sports motor car endurance events, the HGPCA Drum Brake Sports Motor Car Series and last year, to celebrate their tenth anniversary he took this historic motor car to the historic Ollon-Villars hillclimb in Switzerland. The veteran side, including the London-Brighton run, has been catered for by both the 1904 Cadillac Model 'B' Runabout and the 1903 De Dion Bouton 8hp. Many competitors have got to know Mark on a first-hand basis through his hands-on support at many race meetings which takes him across both the UK and Europe. Simon and Mark form a strong and complimentary team, which is able to monitor the market and take effective action when it is needed - actioning their clients' requirements without undue deliberation thus creating a dynamic that is wholly absent from their competition.
