Car Auctions

Charterhouse Classic & Supercar Auction

Charterhouse will again be running a fabulous auction for both Classic Cars and Supercars.

Charterhouse auctioneers and valuers have been involved with classic cars, motorcycles and automobilia since 1999 with the first specialist auction being conducted in 2000.

Charterhouse had the pleasure of conducting the first classic car auction in the beautiful Castle grounds in 2009, which was very successful. Since then each subsequent auction has been built upon with hundreds of classic cars and motorcycles being sold – with a top price achieved by an Aston Martin DB6 restoration project for a not inconsiderable £150,000.

Charterhouse hold a program of specialist classic car and motorcycle auctions throughout the year at national events such as the Netley Marsh Autojumble in September and the Bristol classic car show in June. Both these events and Classics & Supercars at Sherborne Castle are attended by thousands of potential buyers, which is a unique selling point for Charterhouse’s clients. Having achieved some excellent results for their vendors at Sherborne Castle, they look forward to holding more successful auctions in the future.

Their steel band music is a good mix of some traditional Caribbean Music which is very laid back and works well as background music, through to more upbeat repertoire which is often more recognisable and includes steel pan arrangements of well known songs by artists such as Bob Marley and UB40.
