Wow! What a great experience. I reached out to a Mr. Craig Balaban at Motorcar Classics with interest in purchasing a vehicle. Craig went out of his way to explain the process, and set me up with Mr. Steve Linden, he specializes in Vintage Vehicle Services. Since I was geographically separated from Motorcar Classics location in New York, Craig referred me to Steve to put my mind at ease, and act as a 3rd party in my best interest. He was able to not only visually inspect the vehicle from top to bottom, and placed the vehicle on a lift to view the undercarriage. Steve also drove the vehicle, and provided me with a comprehensive report of the overall vehicle. Unlike any other dealership that I have experienced Craig was very patient, kind, and made sure he put forth my interest before himself. Craig also gave me the right amount of time to make a decision about the vehicle.Again Craig, what a great experience. Keep up with the excellent public relations that you provide.v/rRonnie Spencer
My experience at Motorcar Classics was nothing short of great. Craig Balaban verry kind and professional to me and my daughter the moment we met him and he was extremely knowledgeable of the car I was looking to purchase. And I have never seen a place so immaculately clean. I have recommended friends and coworkers who are car enthusiasts to Motorcar Classics. "Thank you again Craig"
I was interested in a 2016 Mercedes AMG GTS from Motorcar Classics. From the very first interaction with Craig Balaban the tone was very friendly and there was no high pressure sales tactics, which I greatly enjoyed. I am an in PHOENIX, and ended up buying the car based on pictures, and a “point” inspection performed by the local Mercedes dealer, that way saving a lot of travel time. After payment was made, Craig put the car on an enclosed car transport to PHOENIX. It arrived in great shape, like brand new, and I have been driving it about every day since! Great car, and easy/great company to work with. Wish them and Craig success. A very nice experience!Regards,Max Nerheim
Having moved to Texas from NYC I was looking for a daily driver and as fate would have it, having been on Motorcar Classics mailing list for years but never able to buy, the perfect looking car came up. Craig and the team were excellent to deal with long distance, answering all my questions and giving me the information i needed to decide the car was worth traveling to see. Once there it was great to spend a productive and unpressured afternoon getting all my questions answered, driving the car and agreeing on a list of items they would address before the sale. The team then organized transport to Texas, dealt with all my registration paperwork and helped resolve an issue long distance that came up on delivery. All in all a fantastic experience and a fantastic car. Thank you Motocar Classics !
My son and I came to Motorcar Classics looking for our first car buy collection ,We had the pleasurer on meeting with CRAIG M. BALBAN ,Craig had spent a great deal of time with us , explaining ,exploring and advising us what would be the best way for us to start with.Thank you Craig
I sold my exotic car through Motorcar Classics. They treated me like family! They are family owned and provides top notch services. Fine automobile owners in the tri-state area use their amazing car storage service as well. Highly recommend Motorcar Classics!
I recently purchased a vintage car from Motorcar Classics remotely from Chicago. Being my first entrance into the vintage car market I have to say, Craig at Motorcar Classics was an excellent resource to help me understand how that market works and was incredibly patient and accommodating as we worked through the transaction. Craig has a deep understanding of the cars, their history, how to insure and best find an independent inspector. From my first conversation with Craig and Motorcar Classics until the car was delivered in perfect condition Craig was a super partner, a trusted resource and was always readily available with answers to all of my questions and there were no surprises. It was a pleasure to work with Motorcar Classics, and Craig especially, and I would not hesitate to ever partner with them either to buy or sell a high-end automobile. It really was a great experience.
We contacted Craig about consigning our Road Runner. He was honest with us and recommended that we sell it on our own as we wouldn't walk away with the sum we were looking for using consignment. He also provided some great advice on selling our classic. We greatly appreciated his honesty!
I was recently at Motorcar Classics acting as an agent/hauler for a buyer in Texas who is a longtime friend and muscle car enthusiast like myself. It was a great experience start to finish.I was greeted warmly upon arrival by Mr. Craig Balaban, who invited me into the showroom and showed me around before even going to his office to start his day. Polite and professional, Craig is not just a salesman but a man who is passionate about these cars. The dealership is spotless throughout including the shop/ storage area which is massive by the way. I was introduced to the head technician Anthony and his associates Danny and John. All friendly and very helpful with my inspection and test drive of the car being purchased. Later in the day as the deal was being finalized, the owner, Mr. Will Branston sought me out to make sure everything was going well. He politely suffered through a few stories of my youthful automotive exploits. I would describe him as down-to-earth for a person of his stature. The man runs a tight ship here. You only have to look around some to see it.Once the deal was done and the car loaded and ready to roll, Mr. Balaban came out to wish me a safe trip and even printed a map for me detailing the best route out of Long Island and back towards Texas. It proved very helpful as I was totally unfamiliar with the area.Although I had no real stake in the car being bought, I happen to know the buyer is satisfied and I would recommend Motorcar Classics to anyone looking to buy or sell their special interest vehicle.
Craig has been an expert guide and great help to me in my recent purchase. Sincerest thanks ...john ballow
Some of the most knowledgeable car ppl on the east cost! Every time we go in the staff and even the boss comes out and shows us around, answers any question we might have . And definitely dont make you feel obligated to buy anything just an all around great experience with them
amazing customer service, wouldnt go anywhere else.
Motorcar Classics is one of the best in the business. Their service and attention to customer needs is impeccable. The customer experience from looking for a car to purchase to making repairs and fixes was outstanding. Reid is easy to work with and very smart. Anthony is a great mechanic and extremely helpful. In a business known for some difficult actors, these guys are top notch and I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone.
Reid was amazing when I purchased my vehicle. He is very knowledgeable and extremely friendly. I will definitely get another vehicle from this place in the future. I have never wrote a review on any website in my life and this is my first review online. I would highly recommend Motorcar Classics to anyone looking to purchase a vehicle. Thank you Reid!
Craig was a great salesman. We in the end didnt work out the deal. I would def. Buy a car from them in the future. Very respectful even when we pulled out of the deal. Thanks again
What a wonderful way to buy or sell a car. After 40 years in the automotive field i found such a great way to do business. Joe B from the start made it such a wonderful experience; top shelf all the way. Great communications and professional service. Thank you very much; I'll be back.
First class operation. I had four really nice cars for sale. I consigned them to Motorcar Classics. Reid did a great job helping with transportation, marketing, final sales and money transfer. Easy and efficient. Great team!
I have been having Motorcar Classics sell several of my cars over the past year and they have been great to work with! Craig & Reid have been most professional, understand the classic car market and provide great service to both seller and buyer! I’ve been particularly impressed by the attentiveness and communication throughout the process! They are a top-notch firm to be trusted!
Motorcar Classics has a really great selection and a great atmosphere. These guys know their cars, and it was refreshing being helped by such knowledgeable people.
Just made my second purchase with Motorcar Classics. Joe was great! He made the experience fun and simple as it should be. Always enjoy looking at the wide range of classic cars.
If you want to sell a car make sure to contact Reid and his staff at MCC.I have consigned turbo Porsche cars and Mercedes AMG vehicles with great success; all have sold for fair market value and all facets of the transactions were handled by MCC perfectly.They are a wealth of automotive knowledge at your disposal and helped me purchase cars with ease. I recommend working with them and their repair shop as well.
Great dealership with MANY selections! The sales team are great guys who have a lot of knowledge about these cars and are always there to help you out. The two guys who take care of preparing the cars are also very helpful and they will also go above and beyond to make sure the customer is taken care of. I will continue to store my cars here without any hesitation.

Motorcar Classics - simply THE BEST! Excellent team that are passionate about their cars. Whether its sales, consignment, purchase or storage - you will be in great hands. Courteous, professional, and excellent communicators that know and understand the exotic and classic car market. Highly recommend them. I have used their services for a few years now.
What an excellent experience. Reid Branston was excellent and communications through the whole process was great. The car was exactly as discussed and advertised. Shipping was taken car of by Motorcar Classics and the car was delivered exactly at the time discussed. I will go to them for my next purchase and highly recommend them.
Bought myself a beautiful car from Motorcar. Craig, the salesman couldn’t have been more helpful with the transaction. He was such a gentleman and there was no typical car salesman pressure to buy the car.Matt, the service manager was fantastic to help correct a minor issue with the car. All together, a great experience from Motorcar Classics.
First became aware of Motorcarclassics because it was next to where I take my son for music class every Saturday.About a year later I had a car that significantly increased in value so I decided to limit the miles I put on it but still use it often.I had began the process of remodeling my house and garage so they were the first place I thought of to store the vehicle.Through the entire process from inquiry, storage agreement and now storage and pickup they have been the best.My vehicle is by no means out of place or even close to the cheapest they have there but walking in seeing cars in the showroom worth $1-5 million dollars is a bit intimidating, however every single person I've dealt with is so helpful, professional and down to earth it makes the experience great.Most importantly they are the best at what they do, and I couldn't be more pleased.They also have an amazing selection of cars for sale in sometimes almost astonishing condition so I'm sure it'll be a matter of time before I buy something there as well.Thanks Reid, Joe, Craig and Dan, bunch of real knowledgeable, cool car guys who do an outstanding job.
Sold my car through this outstanding business operation. Too many nice things to type in this space about Craig and Wil (plus the entire team at MCC), but above all they made the process an enjoyable one, with no friction whatsoever. The professionalism and courteous manner in which they operate was refreshing.
Amazing car buying experience all around. Special thank you to Joe! Very helpful from start to finish.
What a pleasure it was to test drive a car at this facility.The staff is very nice and knowledgeable. The facilities are immaculate.A truly positive experience! 👍Looking forward to future transactions with Reid.
At this point it doesn’t matter the kind of experience I had I respect the fact that the owner reached out to me respectfully n clarified a few things about the business
I reached out to Craig Balaban at Motorcar Classics about selling my classic BMW E28. When I decided to sell myself privately, Craig still spent time on the phone with me and emailed his tips to me to sell which was very helpful. Definitely above and beyond. A breath of fresh air. Recommended.
I recently engaged with Motorcar Classics, and I want to highlight the exceptional service I received from Reid. As a first-time car owner, and more so, the proud owner of a 1974 Jaguar XKE V12, Reid's patience, and clear explanations were invaluable.Reid managed a detailed inspection of my Jaguar, offering a comprehensive report about its current state, and outlining what steps were needed for its restoration. The garage also anticipated future requirements to ensure its long-term performance.What sets Motorcar Classics apart is their dedication to transparency and commitment to quality. With a distinct knowledge of classic cars and competitive prices, they provide a range of services: mechanical, technical, storage, and even brokering for car sales.But it was their customer-oriented approach that truly impressed me. After completing the inspection, they provided a grace period for me to decide the next steps, without pressuring me or starting to charge for storage immediately. This gesture, which I believe is rare in the industry, gave me the confidence and comfort to entrust them with the restoration of my car.Based on this experience, I will undoubtedly choose Motorcar Classics for all my classic car needs.
Having grown both weary and wary of numerous responses to my add, I decided to put my vintage car into the hands of those who are experienced not only with respect to the actual vehicle but also in the matter of presenting and finalizing a sale that represents fairness to both the seller and buyer. Motorcar Classics and particularly Craig Balaban did not disappoint me.His encyclopedic understanding of vehicles tempered by a sincere sense of ethical interaction among all parties in an attempt to reach a fair conclusion must be appreciated and commended. I will not hesitate if and when the need arises whereupon I would either want to sell or purchase another vehicle , to put the transaction into the hands of Motorcar Classics.
Had the pleasure of working with Joe, he was a fantastic guy to deal with and shared my excitement in the car I wanted to get. Thank you Joe for your help in assisting me to obtain my dream car!

I bought a car from Motorcar Classics from out of state. Ever tried to buy a car from another state? It is WAY harder than you think it would be! I legit went to another dealer first--who also had the car I wanted. That dealer wasn't helpful and I wasted over a week trying to figure the interstate purchase out on my own.Why am I saying this? Because the folks at Motorcar Classics made it EASY! Like a couple of phone calls, some digital docusigning, and a few text messages easy. Transfer the payment and several weeks later a truck pulls up to my neighborhood and my car rolls off of it in pristine condition.
I found Motor Classics to be an extremely professional organization. They walked me through the car buying processing and made it effortless. They have a wide range of vehicles, something to fit everyone's price point. I would not hesitate to use them in the future or recommend them to a friend.David
Craig Balaban and Motorcar Classics made my wifes 30 yr wedding anniversary present very special. The beautiful 1976 green metallic 280z 2+2 that I purchased from them after searching for 2 years(+) is now with us in Michigan. Craig was the most professional, pleasant, and thorough person I have encountered in a very long time. He loves what he does and it shows. If you're looking at making a purchase from these guys then go for it! You will be happy you did!
Excellent customer service. Outstanding attention to detail. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. The best in the business. If you're in the market for a classic or exotic car, look no further!
I have been using Motorcar Classics for storage services for some time now and can say I am thoroughly impressed with the company as a whole. From the initial conversation with Reid to discuss available options to actually using the services, I can say they are top notch. Reid and everyone I have worked with have been extremely professional, regardless of the type of car you have. I don't own fancy or exotic cars, but they're mine - the team at Motorcar Classics treat them as if they're collectibles. Very satisfied with Motorcar Classics!
What a pleasure to know that your investment is safe, secure and well nourished. Its one thing to have a nice car, but another to maintain that nicety. At Motorcar you are treated with the utmost dignity, respect and care which is very hard to find in today's day and age. My car is ready to go at a phone calls notice 24 hours in advance; all clean for a weekend cruise and tucked back in a few days later in it's tempered environment. much appreciated guys.
Best car sales experience I ever had. The team at Motorcar Classics are top notch. Joe was such a professional in all aspects of the process. If you want a classic car, this is the place to go.

I purchased a 2002tii from Craig at Motorcar Classics and had a very comfortable, honest experience. He was thorough throughout the entire process, including several weeks after I received the car, making good on every assurance he gave me.
I have been left speechless by the services provided by MotorCar Classics. I had called their office and was so lucky to be connected to Craig. The original conversation started with info on a car they had recently sold. We talked for a good 20-30 minutes and I can tell Craig was full of enthusiasm and a passion for cars. One conversation led to another and he taught me how consignment works. I had sold 4 jeeps prior on my own and didn't even know consignment to sell a car was a thing. He walked me through the details on how it works. I ended up giving them my Jeep CJ-7 after a week and they had it sold faster than I had imagined. For my age, my biggest battle is getting a conversation going with such professionals who deal with cars worth hundreds of thousands. Their ENTIRE staff including the owner were so friendly & welcoming. I would do business with them a hundred times over. I HIGHLY recommend them.
Motorcar Classics is top notch! Searched many places to store my car, none came close to the professional experience they have provided. First day dropped car off, it was raining and they didn’t store until completely cleaned and dried. When I pick car up, always clean and ready to go, as promised. I highly recommend their service for anyone who truly cares about their car.Keep up the good work, Reid and staff
My first time with a major purchase on line and Motorcar Classics was extremely helpful with all of the details. Reid Branston, sales rep., made the process easy from initial contact to delivery. I would highly recommend them if you are in the market for a classic car.
Reid and team quickly and seamlessly sold my 2004 BMW M3. Appreciate the help and thanks!
