H&H was founded by Simon Hope and Mark Hamilton in 1993 as a specialist auction house dedicated solely to the sale of collectors’ motorcars and motorcycles. Some twenty-one years later the company can boast a continuous trading history which exceeds that of any UK rival.
Managing Director and Chief Auctioneer, Simon Hope has over thirty years’ experience of auctioning specialist commodities. A collector since his university days, Simon has owned a wide variety of roadgoing and competition machinery; the latter allowing him to participate in such prestigious events as the Mille Miglia Storica, Le Mans Classic, Monaco Historics and Goodwood Revival.
H&H has had the pleasure of handling everything from 1890s London to Brighton runners through to 1990s Formula 1 cars not to mention a variety of iconic motorcycles and holds a considerable number of world record auction prices. The company’s client database extends to over 50,000 records worldwide and its website is visited by up to 18,000 unique users per week.
H&H holds over a dozen regular sales throughout the year at various locations in the United Kingdom. Their last auction was October 8th, and the top sales included a 1923 Bentley 3 Litre Tourer and a 1938 Lagonda V12 Sports Saloon, which sold for £156,800 and £82,880 respectively. Their headquarters are near Warrington, Cheshire in the UK, and their next auction is November 12th at The Pavilion Garden. For more information on H&H, click here.
