Founded in 2016 and formerly known as ‘The Market’, Bonhams|Cars Online was the first dedicated classic and collectible car online auction platform in the UK.
Our unequalled Trustpilot ratings and sell-through rate of over 90% mean that we remain the benchmark for transparency, honesty, speed, ease and effectiveness in a highly competitive marketplace.
Evolving from the Patina digital vehicle history start-up, The Market was born of a realisation that a combination of digital technology - and the best and most truthful professional photography and written 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 a proven, transparent, trusted and effective service, at no cost to sellers.
We succeed by making the buying and selling of classic and collector vehicles as simple, secure, speedy, efficient, honest and rewarding as possible.
It’s an approach that has seen our business grow exponentially since our acquisition by Bonhams in 2020
