Having acquired and developed new auction rooms in the heart of the Cotswolds earlier this year, Bonhams decided to move its first UK sale from Stoneleigh to Oxford in March. The salerooms are positioned five miles north of Oxford, close to Oxford Airport, M40, A34, A44 and A40 trunk roads, and to the market town of Woodstock. 

James Knight, International Director of Motoring at Bonhams, who took the decision to depart Stoneleigh, says: “The new location is the perfect venue for a Collectors’ Motor Car auction and has all the in-house facilities customers would expect from a fully operational auction house. The Bonhams Oxford saleroom was previously a Mercedes-Benz main agent and therefore has ample free parking for customers, even if they chose to bring their trailers.”

The Bonhams Oxford salerooms will also host a further Motorcycle auction in June, to coincide with the famous annual VMCC Banbury Run, where 600 pre-1931 machines take part in the event.
