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 !

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.

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.

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.

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.

Great guys from start to finish. I was a bit worried buying a car without personally being there and simply wiring the funds. BUT these guys were fantastic. Reid and Joe were quick on turn around a delivery. And we love our 1952 MG! Jonathan and Sara Lewis Chalreston SC!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!
