major new one stop shop classic auction and storage facility launches in cheshire
October 9, 2020
A major new facility for classic owners, offering everything from auctions, sales and car storage to shows and club meets, has opened in the North West.
Cheshire businessman and classic car enthusiast, Stephen Ashworth, Chairman and CEO of Manchester based Hurstwood Holdings, has realised his long held ambition and is delighted to announce the opening of Manor Park Classics from its 30,000 sq ft site based in Runcorn, Cheshire.
Based five minutes from the M56 and central for the UK, Manor Park Classics is uniquely positioned to offer a broad range of services for the classic car and motorbike community from its purpose designed building, delivered by experienced ‘classic car people’.
Headed up by Managing Director, Roger Nowell, the vastly experienced team also includes Sales Director, Sam Grange-Bailey, Operations Manager Nik Askins and BAFTA award winning photographer, George Turner.
Stephen Ashworth comments: ‘Manor Park Classics offers the complete service for the classic enthusiast providing a one stop shop for the classic car community. As a private collector for the last 35 years, this has always been a huge passion of mine and having spent many years in auction houses across the country, I understand how daunting and, at times frustrating, the process can be. Our aim was to create a complete experience for our clients; a destination where classic collectors be it cars, motorbikes or automobilia – from Morris Minors to Bentleys, from Triumphs to Ferraris – can come together and be confident that they are receiving the best advice from industry experts.”
Stephen continues: “Manor Park Classics brings together the best in the industry and we have assembled a fantastic team. We are very excited about this new venture.”
Roger Nowell, Managing Director of Manor Park Classics adds: “We offer secure, dry & de-humidified storage, brokerage for sales and acquisitions as well as advice and recommendations for the craftsmen that know how to look after our classics. The facility is split into two halls - one for storage for up to 150 cars and the other for auctions.
“From Q1 2021, we will be launching our in-house classic car auction and we will be doing things a little differently! Owning the premises means we have taken all the elements of our own experiences that frustrate us and tailored a classic car auction format that really works.”
Roger concludes: “Last, but definitely not least, we are excited to be a destination for events, car clubs, launches, cars and coffee meets. There is nothing like this in the North and both the service that we offer and facilities will be unique.”
