I had a great buying experience at Motorcar Classics with Craig Balaban. I bought a Chevelle SS sight unseen based on the dealerships description and a private inspection from a fellow I hired to look at the car. The car was shipped 2500 miles and was as described. Perhaps not the safest avenue but it certainly worked for me. Enough so that I would do it again. Thanks Craig and Motorcar Classics.

I saw a beautiful corvette convertible on their website, made an appt with Reid who took great care of me and spent as much time as I needed. I just picked my car up yesterday and could not be happier with the experience I had at Motorcar Classics. I would highly recommend this dealership to my friends.

Motorcar Classics exceeded my expectations in every aspect during the sale of my collectible car. The sale was prompt, professional, and a great value. My car was sold without the hassles of running ads, answering calls, or dealing with “lookers” wasting my time. Craig and the team at Motorcar Classics prepared the car, marketed it, and sold it quickly and painlessly. I highly recommend this helpful company.

It's hard to overstate what a pleasure it's been to deal with Craig Balaban at Motorcar Classics. I purchased a low-mileage beautiful AMG vehicle, after having searched for over a year for the "right one".From the initial moment of contact over the telephone, and then meeting Craig one Saturday morning, I was thoroughly impressed by his gentlemanly manner, knowledge and clear commitment to customer service. I felt respected and knew that I wanted to do business with Craig and his team.There was one minor issue, which owner Will Branston and Craig quickly addressed to my complete satisfaction.Craig and I discussed taking advantage of their Premium Consignment Service and having them sell my existing AMG convertible. This was another decision I'm very glad I made. The peace of mind of having them handle the whole process was very rewarding. Team member Dmitris Kolyvas took superb photos of my vehicle, and they were posted on their website, as well as marketed over all the most popular websites, such as CarGurus, etc.I was updated every time an offer came in for my car, and was so comfortable with the whole process. My car's now in good hands with a new owner, and I thanked Craig and Will for such a great business experience, both buying and selling, at MotorCar Classics.I would definitely go with them for any future needs, when it comes to low-mileage, classic cars in very impressive condition.

A true pleasure to deal with. I picked up my car today and everything worked out perfectly. Reid’s responses to my text messages or calls were practically instant, day or night, weekdays or weekends! I have been searching for a specialist/dealer like this to build a long relationship with for many years. People who share the same passion for cars as I do. Speaking with the owner Will was like speaking to someone who is as in love with cars today as he was when he was a child, a true enthusiast and expert at his craft. Thanks for a great experience and I look forward to many more purchases with the team at Motorcar Classics!

Awesome experience! I can't even begin to say what a great time I had buying a car. From the minute I contacted them by phone to the purchase and even after, Craig(My Salesman),Will(owner), Reid, and the rest of the staff treated me not just as a customer, but like an old friend. The courteous professionalism went beyond what I ever would have expected. This group was so great to deal with and so knowledgable about their cars, it made the experience even more enjoyable. I mean, where can you go purchase a car in a museum-like setting where the there are cars for sale from $20,000 to over a $million and feel like you're just having a good time with some friends. Motorcar classics is just amazing! Thank you all very much! I love my car!

I bought a 2008 GT3 sight unseen from Reid at Motorcar Classics. Needless to say I was a bit nervous about it. Reid and the staff were great, the car was represented perfectly, and I am very happy with the transaction. They were quick to respond to questions and took care of the shipping. I look forward to doing business with Motorcar Classics again .Ryan Harte

Walking into that showroom and storage area is like a childhood dream. The vehicles are perfect. I purchased a 76 cadillac eldorado that was close to perfect and they fixed any little things that were off. From sales to service to office staff, prompt courteous service. Thank you for a great experience and beautiful vehicle

I bought a 2014 Shelby and dealt with Will directly. From my first phone call to my delivery he was extremely professional. The car is amazing and everything was exactly as described. Will went over and above and I could not ask for an easier transaction. I would give him a 10 out of 10.

I've sold two cars and purchased one through Motor Car Classics. Each experience was professional, fair, customer focused and enjoyable. I would recommend Motor Car Classics to anyone looking to sell or purchase a high end, exotic, vintage or otherwise unique automobile. Thanks to the entire MCC team, especially Craig, for a great experience.

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 !

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.

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.

I recently purchased a 1956 Austin Healey from Motorcar Classics. I'm in Michigan so I purchased the car sight unseen. Craig's description was accurate and although we had a few stumbles in the process (some due to COVID issues) we worked our way through them. I am an automobile dealer as well so I understand the more subtle points of the business. Based on my experience I would recommend them. Thank you gentlemen.

I just sold my 2019 Subaru STI to Motorcar Classics. Within seconds of speaking with Will on the phone, I knew he was the "real deal." Everything about Motorcar Classics--the sparkling showroom, the array of exotic and pristine cars, and their knowledge about the business--is topnotch. More important, to me, however, is their professionalism and character. Will is a man with integrity. Everything he said he'd do, he did when and how he said he'd do it. He said he built his business on relationships. Work with Will, and you'll understand. I do. So, the next time I have a car to buy or sell, I'm calling Will.

I recently purchased a car from Motorcar Classics and from the moment I walked in the door , I was greeted by Joe who was very knowledgeable on the car that I was interested in. He answered all my questions and gave me all the necessary information. From there ,we met the owner (Will) Who gave us additional information on the car. Before purchasing the car, Matt from the service department, took care of any concerns we had on the car. They all worked well together and went above and beyond to make us 100% happy with our purchase! My car is in show room condition and I couldn’t be happier! Thank you Motorcar Classics !
