For over 12 years, I have worked in the World of Classic & Collectible Cars, providing support, advice & insurance to business, owners & enthusiast. It became clear to me that this vibrant sector did not enjoy a trade body, an organisation to support and underpin businesses, to add value and increase visitors to their websites.  So in 2019, the Specialist Vehicle Association was born and we are not a regulatory body, our job is simple.  Support and network classic and collectible car businesses to mutual benefit.

The Car is the Star but how in a highly competitive market do you stand out, provide new services, added value, drive more business & square the perfect service circle without spending large sums of money?

That’s exactly where we come in, to bring businesses together, then expose them to the wider enthusiast public. It is completely FREE OF CHARGE to become a Trade Member of the SVA and we will provide you with a wide range of real benefits for your business.  Whether you need to access discounted products such as trader insurance to valeting products, or to assist customers needing assistance, funding to buy cars or insurance to collect them.  We can also connect you to the experts you need, immediately!

We also now welcome Owners, Collectors & Enthusiasts, to register for our e-news letter and access all displayed discounts, services and benefits as an Enthusiast member.  Subscription is FREE For Life!
