"Words fail me; £8.53m coming from one single legacy is exciting enough. But watching the skill with which you ran the auction (and probably added half a million pounds to the sale price of the 2 Ferraris), I was genuinely impressed.
For many, many reasons, you and the team at H&H have been complete stars during the last 6 months and I am immensely grateful for all the work that you and the others put into the run-up to yesterday’s auction, and indeed the auction itself.
We could not have been in better hands, and I appreciate your efforts on our behalf enormously."
Gavin Strang | Lyon & Turnbull
"An astute seller will want to be sure that the company they choose will provide a superb international client network of buyers, a total commitment to marketing their car brilliantly and as close to a guarantee as is possible in the auction world that its value will be maximized. The same quality of service applies to buying a car from H&H whether at auction or by private treaty
These are just some of the reasons that Lyon & Turnbull have chosen a partnership with H&H Classics, the conviction that they are the best in the business.
This decision has been bolstered by the fact that H&H are one of just five companies in the world to have sold a car for over $10m – the 1960 Ferrari 250 GT, sold on behalf of the RNLI. As a result of this sale the RNLI received the biggest bequest in its history. At this sale no fewer than 17 clients from all over the world registered and demonstrated a purchase capability in excess of £5m."

“The gift opportunity which this (donated Ferrari Nembo Spider) legacy offers will enable to us to proceed with the building of a bespoke hangar to house our Helicopter, Anglia 2, at Cambridge airport some 400m from our base. Having our own hangar just next door would mean adding some 180 available shift hours a year significantly increasing the number of lifesaving missions we could fly each year.”
The estimated investment needed to build the Hangar is close to £200,000 so the impressive hammer price achieved by H&H (£530,000) will also enable us to evaluate the possibility of introducing a 24/7 service (something our ground crews, pilots and medical staff have already selflessly volunteered). The EAAA is all about changing what could be the last day of your life into one that is merely the worst day in your life. We feel deeply honoured to have been the recipient of Richard Allen’s thoughtfulness and generosity – his legacy will be to help us save many more lives.”
“We’re very very proud to have H&H, who

have a fantastic reputation within the classic
car world as one of THE auction houses for selling classic cars and bikes."
Angus Forsyth | Hagerty Intl"H&H is one of those auction houses very
much at the top of it’s game. In fact it’s
climbing at a rapid rate."
Steve Geoghegan | Currency Solutions
"We offer clients of H&H a hammer-blow to banks exchange rates, and take the stress
out of the entire foreign exchange process."
Martin Tomlinson | Moto-Racing Art“I am very proud to be associated with such a knowledgeable and helpful group of people who make up H&H."
"Having never dealt with auctioneers in my life before and hearing terrible stories of rip-offs and bad treatment as a seller, I must say it was with trepidation that I originally contacted H&H after seeing transparency of your commissions etc, on your website. Actually the experience we have had from you has been excellent. Everything you said you would do you did do and you made the whole experience as pleasurable as it could have been...
...I will certainly recommend H&H to anybody wanting to sell motorcycles by auction in the future."

"First of all can I just say thank you for introducing me to a whole new experience, I have never been to an auction before let alone buy or sell anything, so it was quite an interesting experience. As the auction of my bike (someone else’s bike now) proceeded I started to shake with excitement, I was still shaking later that night when I went to bed, never before have I experienced a feeling like it, I’ll probably get addicted to auctions now.
I have been very impressed with the professional way in which the sale was handled and would like to thank everyone involved with the sale for providing me with a result I could only have dreamed of."
Barry Hunter, Nottingham | February 2017
"I attended your auction at Duxford yesterday. I was a bit dumbfounded with the result for the HRG! I think this must be a record for a standard HRG. I thought the two page entry in the catalogue was first class and your auctioneer the best I have heard."
Thank you very much for your help.
