I have had many experiences in buying and selling classic cars and vintage cars over the past fifty years and without hesitation I can say that Tom Laferriere is the most knowledgeable and trustworthy man I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with, especially his professionalism and acumen of old fashioned business trust and handshake approach. Tom brings a fresh and welcomed approach to quality business and trust, I highly recommend him should you look to either sell or buy a vintage or classic car.
Looking to sell a classic automobile? Laferriere Classic Cars is the One Stop decision to Get It Done!! Tom is an important partner in obtaining, down sizing or just revamping my Automobile Hobby. Thank You for helping me sell one of my important automobiles!
I have had the pleasure of having Tom handle the sale of two classic cars for me and one classic car purchase.He is professional, knowledgeable , thoroughly efficient and has a wonderful staff. And is also a very nice person with whom to do business. I would have the upmost confidence in using him again and I would highly recommend his services
Hi Tom: I must say that my native language is Portuguese, so I beg pardon for the mistakes. For the time I´ve being transactiing with you I must say I´m very confident in continuing dealing with, as far as I know I bought four cars from you, the last one was a 1935 Cadillac, opportunity that you were very patient as I delayed the money transfer, but you understood my problem. For one who lives abroad, it´s very importante to have someone you can trust, like you. Hope to see you in the next Hershey. Regards. Adhemar.
Hi Tom, I just want to thank you for handling the sale of my 1969 Mercedes 280SL. Your call was right at the perfect time with you having a buyer and making the selling experience smooth as silk! Now I have an empty garage space that will need to be filled. Thanks again, it’s always a great experience to deal with you. Kindest regards, Bob
Bob, thanks again for the opportunity to provide a clean and hassle free sale of your car. Let me know what I else I can do.
When it came time to sell my classic car I was lost with where to start. I can’t thank Tom enough for making what seemed like an overwhelming task a very easy and stress-free one. He is a car enthusiast at heart and truly loves what he does. He took care of everything from photographing of the car, the advertising, dealing with and meeting with prospective buyers, as well as the paperwork (also, a huge thank-you to Torie for her help with the paperwork throughout the entire process). Tom is extremely knowledgeable in his area of work, knowing the best places to advertise in order to reach the maximum number of potential buyers. Upon our initial meeting he had already done his research on the car and explained how to determine the best fair market value based on the current market and comparable comps. His down to earth nature, honesty, and professionalism made the entire experience an enjoyable one. I would highly recommend Tom to anyone looking to sell or buy a classic car.
Thank you so much for your kind words, I was happy to help!
I responded to a internet reach for a 1939 Ford Deluxe 4 door convertible. Tom's email responses were timely and complete as to answers I was seeking. Because I am in Washington State I looked for a set of eyes (vehicle appraiser) to provide me with a written report and pictures. The appraiser confirmed everything that Tom had been conveying to me. Tori, his office mate, is a gem for following up on inquiries and documentation. This is my first classic car purchase other than my owning a 1937 Ford Deluxe slant back back in high school (1957) and a 1959 Jaguar XKE 150 roadster while in the Marine Corps 1962 -1964 - sold it when I went to Viet Nam. The price of those cars back then were certainly easier on the pocketbook.
Chuck, thank you so much for your business. If you need anything else, I am easy to find.
I've been in this hobby for over 40 years. Believe me when I say Tom's one in 1 million. It's easy to say "Car Guys Are great " but Tom redefines that word. He has the rare ability to treat you like a friend from the minute you engage him. He's not only knowledgeable but he won't BS you to make a sale. In the process of finishing the deal, I thought he was bending over backward for me. But he shrugged it off by saying what he did was easy. I can't recommend him enough
Hi Russ, thank you so much for your kind words! It was a pleasure doing business with you as well, you made the transaction also very easy. If you ever decide to sell the special car you purchased from me, let me know, as I apparently have a line of people that would like it.
I met Tom through his add in Hemmings Motor News and his really informative web site. The early 1930's Cadillac I was interested in was accurately described with a complete history and an excellent photo presentation including all of the features that a buyer would want to see. I visited his shop, test drove the car, inspected it on the lift and spent the afternoon going over details of the car with Tom and his mechanic. The car was just as described. Tom was instrumental in assisting with my purchase of the car for a fair and reasonable price and due to his network of antique automobile enthusiasts he was able to round up some rare parts that had been removed by previous owners . His thorough knowledge of the great American classic cars, his honesty and integrity, and follow up after the sale are second to none. Anyone interested in buying or selling an antique, classic or collector car should certainly check with Tom Laferrierre.
Walter, thank you so much for your business and kind words. I am glad you are happy with the Cadillac, its a great car. Please stay in contact.
Tom has sold three Classics for me, resulting in a smooth transition each time,The attention to details was key, as well as the great Web page and excellent description and photos of the autos. The pricing issue was resolved as Tom did research as to what each model was selling for. Thanks Tom for a great relationship.
Erich, thank you so much for the business, I really appreciate it!
Early Fall I purchased a Classic Automobile from Laferriere Classic Cars. I really did not have the garage space necessary for this new purchase however, I did have a Classic Car to sell. I asked Tom if he could help. Tom accepted my Auto for sale immediately to allow garage space for my new purchase. Both transactions were completed separately and with intricate detail. His style and professionalism is second to none. Tom I appreciate everything you do!!!! Credit to the Automobile Hobby.....
Henry, We share the same passion! Thank you for the business, both on the buy and sell side!
I have now sold 3 cars through Tom and I highly recommend his services. As with the first two, he picked the car up and wired me the money 4 weeks later. He handled the market analysis for pricing, photography, description, inspection, marketing and negotiation. He shields the seller from all the aggravation of selling a car and makes it easy on the buyer. When you divide his commission into the hours it would take to do his job it seems like quite a bargain. Not to mention, a private seller would not be able to do as good a job as a professional like Tom.
Thank you for your continued business and in trust in my services. It was a great car to sell!
Buying a classic car from Tom was a very enjoyable experience. He was extremely helpful throughout the process. He was open to questions and even outside inspections if I wanted one. He put the car up on a lift within 10 minutes of my initial visit. This was one example of the great customer service, which let me make an informed decision. I felt confident in buying from Tom and would recommend him to anyone looking for a classic car.
Hi Jay, it was great working with you! Let me know if I can help with anything in the future.
Tom had my car for sale and closed the deal in about 2 weeks, his advertising reached out in a very professional manor and I amcompletely satisfied with the results.
Bob, thanks for trusting me with your beautiful Packard!
Professional, good communication, knowledge, attention to detail and passion are all qualities Tom has shown with all my transactions. I have used Tom's help selling, trading and buying five cars over the past ten years. He was able to make the people connections and make the process smooth and easy. Thank you for keeping me happy and smiling.
Michael, its always a pleasure working with you!
I asked Tom if he would be willing to sell a unique car that happens to sit in a very narrow market. Although the car itself was very nice, I knew it would not be something easy to sell. With no hesitation, Tom took the car, cleaned it up and advertised it in all the right places. I know this required quite a bit of effort on his part. I also know he didn't get rich on the transaction which happened much soon than I expected.. Much appreciated, you are the man Tom!
Hi Sandra, thank you for the opportunity to sell it. Although it was outside my normal operation, it was very unique and was happy to add it to the list of successful transactions.
Tom has sold two cars for me, getting a better price than I could have, with no hassle. In my many years I have dealt with many people, Lawyers, business people and unfortunately con artist. This was a pleasure to deal with a true trustworthy and honest gentleman.
Norman, thank you so much for kind words! Its my pleasure working with you.
Tom is a true professional. He took the time to explain everything in a fair and honest manner. The transaction was very efficient and all was delivered exactly as promised. Even though we were 1500 miles apart throughout the transaction, it felt as if we were sitting across a desk from each other. Thank you Tom, it was a pleasure.
Mauricio, thank you so much for your business, I really do appreciate it. Enjoy the Oldsmobile!
Tom loves cars and what he does. He is experienced, knowlegable, honest, a gentleman, a pleasure to deal, patient, a good business man with a sense of humor and has a tremendous network of friends and people that know the cars and their history. I just purchased the car of my dreams that he had on consignment and he very early on recognized an issue with the cars documentation and wisely advised that it get sorted out and corrected so I would avoid issues down the road. The situation delayed the sale, but the wait was worth it. When I went to pick the car up I was confident it would perform as advertised, but also knew I was buying it "as is". I showed up alone after a 100 mile uber ride to drive the car. I think this approach might be first for Tom and he would have preferred that I had a friend with me in another car to follow me home. I said life should be an adventure and he didn't miss a beat and said I was a brave man. He patiently went through the car again with me and answered all of my questions. I then got in the car and drove the car home and it performed and handled beautifully. A top 10 day in my life! Thanks Tom!
Hi Fred, certainly was fun! The Uber drop off was a first for me! Pleasure meeting you!
I visited Laferriere Classic Cars to look at a rare muscle car. The car was exactly as presented to me in advance over the phone, and the description in the ad was honest. Tom took the time to discuss the details and show me the car and even bought me lunch. I did purchase the car, and everything was handled with professionalism and courtesy throughout the process. It was a pleasure dealing with Tom, and I can highly recommend him and his firm to other classic car buyers.
Hello Olaf, the pleasure was mine! Your knowledge of "all things cars" was very impressive! I am glad we had the opportunity to get t know each other.
