Car Barn - Your first choice to sell your exotic car with


Is your vehicle

  • Rare, exotic or high performance?
  • Well cared for with maintenance records?
  • Under used and perhaps taking up space that could be filled with your next car purchase?

If the answer to any of these is yes, then Car Barn’s consignment service could fulfil your needs.  We discretely maintain a stock of great cars in our showroom so our sales team can present to as many interested parties as possible with pride. Potential customers are sourced from our database and using traditional and digital advertising mediums. 

If you’re ready to sell your vehicle you may want to avoid the cost and complexity of advertising it across multiple platforms simultaneously, taking time out of your day to answer queries or to host visits  and drives from prospective buyers, then get in touch with us at Car Barn.

Let us invite you to visit our showroom and have a chat with Jonathon about our convenient services. We’ll be able to show you what will happen to your car while it is under our care, how often you will be updated on the sales enquiries and progress of the car and discuss the flexibility of your agreement with us.  More importantly we’ll be able to assess if the service fits both the purpose and needs of you and your car.

Why consign your car with us?

  • No Upfront Fees

    When you consign your car with us at Car Barn, there are no upfront fees for you to pay. To get things started, following an appointment with our Acquisitions Manager, George Craven, we would simply need the consignment vehicle paperwork so that we can undertake a market appraisal, agree an accurate valuation and that both parties are happy with. We don’t get paid until we sell your car. Our payment will come in the form of the buyers fee which will all be discussed and agreed before offering the car for sale.
  • Professional Marketing

    Car Barn’s marketing programme means that your car will receive comprehensive and multi-media coverage guaranteeing exposure and giving you the best chance to find a buyer. Upon receiving your vehicle, our in-house photographer will take a suite of professional photos detailing the exterior and interior of the car to make it look spectacular to all interested parties. We will advertise your car not just on our own website, but also leading third-party providers such as Piston Heads, Car & Classic and Classic Driver. Not only that but your car will also feature in print advertising in Octane magazine, monthly email alerts to our news subscriber list and lastly through our social media platforms.

As customer visits and enquiries for the car will be taking place at our Car Barn facility, you can gain the added benefits of both security and convenience. By avoiding the need for strangers to visit your home, by ensuring your car is fully insured on test drives and by entrusting the payment verification process to professionals you are opting for the secure choice.

Selling your car with us at Car Barn allows you to relax knowing everything is being taken care of.
  • Flexible Agreement

    Our consignment service is flexible to fit around your needs. If at any time you wish to cancel the agreement, you can do so at any time and without any cancellation fee. We also allow you continued access to your vehicle, while we work hard to find a buyer for it. In the event of a successful sale we will handle all of the paperwork for both parties and arrange for you to receive your copy along with your payment.
  • Added benefits & protection for buyer & seller

    The added benefit of consigning your car with us is that our service can protect you from any customer complaints about any defects or reliability issues.
