Starting with just three people, Collecting Cars now has a team of 90 specialists with a presence across four continents. In less than four years, it has become the leading curated online marketplace for collectible cars, bikes and automobilia globally – transforming the way that enthusiasts buy and sell.
It has disrupted a 60-year-old business model by moving the high-end auction experience entirely online, and offering a free-to-list and free-to-sell service for collectors. The platform now has over 100,000 registered members, has sold more than 12,000 lots, and has generated in excess of £450 million for its sellers.
In June 2023, Collecting Cars was named one of the UK’s top 20 fastest-growing founder-led privately owned companies. Of the circa 4.2 million private companies in the UK, only around 1% (45,000) are considered ‘high growth’, and the business was ranked 17th in FEBE’s 2023 Growth 100.
Collecting Cars has always been more than just a buying and selling platform though. It now hosts more than 60 events per year, including record-breaking gatherings at Bicester Heritage, and its Coffee Runs have become must-attend meets. Not only that, but The Collecting Cars Podcast has become one of the most popular broadcasts of its kind, with new episodes of ‘Collecting Addicts’ going live every week.
