Why would you need independent advice

Carficionado‘s clients are usually successful entrepreneurs, privateers or money managers. They know their environment and they know something about cars. Most of the time they have a special taste or favoured brands, models or periods.

Managing investment into classic vehicles must combine market knowledge, technical & historical background and emotions. The later one proves to be a challenging thing sometimes: what to do if the client‘s taste is contrary to market development?

Only clear strategies and independent advice can bring the solution: highlight all aspects of potential purchase, a change in the collection or even the set-up from scratch of an investment only collection.

Otherwise you have little choice on the market: most experts are having own interests. Classic car dealers, auction houses, private collectors, brand experts, and the ever active wheeler dealers. Rest assured: everyone is an expert in their own right. Just if you as a client get expert advice. Buy what the dealer has on stock? Bid for a car not examined before auction? Sign NCNDAs first and reveal your status before you even know what you are after.

Make no mistake, the ever growing values of classic vehicles call for problems. "Originality", "genuineness", "restored to concourse level", "superbly period condition" just to name a few terms that are not just confusing, but may cost you a fortune.

Carficionado flattens your learning curve.
