Welcome to Minchins Classics.
The family here have been in the motor industry for 50 years: new car franchise for 30 years, including a motorcycle business in Chichester and now our real love, Classic Cars and Motorcycles. We have always placed our customers first and have always strived to deliver the first-class service that we would expect ourselves.
First and foremost for us is the quality of the actual cars and motorbikes themselves; most are purchased directly from the owners, usually our avid enthusiasts and often car club members (offering the vehicle to me), who have loved and cherished them but it has to go for one reason or another.
I will personally fully inspect the vehicle prior to purchase to ensure it is up to my high standards and condition. Once purchased the car or bike goes through thorough checks and PDI by an independent specialist workshop, ready for its new custodian.
We handle everything for you, especially if you are new to owning a classic vehicle, including all the re-registration with DVLA, MOT if necessary and renewing the FREE ROAD TAX. We will assist you and recommend the correct insurance to protect your investment. We supply all the books/manuals to help you learn a little about your particular vehicle and are at the end of a telephone should you need any help or advice once the car is in your possession.
We simply want to make the whole experience of purchasing a classic car or motorbike as easy and as enjoyable as possible whether you are a first-time buyer or an experienced classic vehicle owner. Take your test drive to our favourite coffee house, Cast Iron Coffee Roasters, this will allow you to ask any questions in a non pressured environment.
We do not run a 9 to 5 business; we are happy to facilitate your personal requirements and we love it if your partner or family member comes for the experience too; after all, we hope they may even enjoy driving it too.
Let us share our many years of experience with you, which no internet content or books will give you. I will be delighted to see you here near Goodwood, such a perfect place to be and play with cars and motorbikes!
