Documentation Vehicle history & pre-purchase inspections

Engine Notes
When hidden secrets emerge, our work could make a small fortune.

Each vehicle is provided with a comprehensive documentation pack including photography, and additional information on each lot—such as history files, production certificates, restoration documentation, owner’s manuals, and accompanying parts/tools/luggage.

 

Sometimes we enlist the help of trusted partners and marquee specialists’, manufacture services such as “Classiche”, “Heritage”, FCA, Historians and Restorers, liaising with Museums, former Designers, Salesmen, and racing teams, evidencing service records, racing pedigrees, driver histories or famous ownership. Our work can add value to your vehicle..

 

Once we have delved deep into the authenticity of the lot, your dedicated Client Service Manager will complete the listing, the documentation pack, and start the auction process, all free of charge.

Live-stream Dynamic viewing

Engine Notes

The biggest challenge for any bidder when buying online is judging the quality of the consignment. No matter how honest and detailed the listing, how deep the documented history or how clear the photography is, without a physical inspection there is a possibility expectations won’t be met.

 

We developed dynamic viewing to overcome this. A live-streamed inspection of your vehicle or collection, often hosted by respected marque specialists and Engine Notes staff, gives an unbiased and brutally honest evaluation of the car in real-time. Your bidders can ask questions in real-time, inspecting known problem areas of a car, or just being guided through a pre-purchase inspection by an expert. Dynamic viewing guarantees bidding confidence without the need for anyone to visit your home, garage or storage facility.
