KWE is not primarily in the business of selling cars – we are an engineering firm – but we are sometimes asked by our clients to sell their KWE-engineered cars for them as they trust us to find the ‘right sort’ of buyer for their treasured classic. These will be cars we know well and can vouch for as being genuine. We do also sometimes buy good examples as they crop up, for re-sale or restoration.
Many clients ask KWE to buy a car on their behalf, either to drive or to restore, because we have the expertise to reject poor quality, over-sold examples. We charge a 10% + vat fee for this service which includes inspection, travelling and vehicle transport.**
