What Makes Catawiki the Place to Sell Extraordinary Items?

You might think “It will never happen to me!” until one day, rummaging in an old box you discover a first edition book from the 1800s or - perhaps as one fisherman recently made the news with - the world’s largest pearl under your bed! At that point you think “What on earth can I do with this?”

Using the auction

A beautiful Ferrari or an original Porsche 911 set my heart racing.

While his peers were all buying mopeds, Sander Houdel purchased his first Volkswagen Beetle at the age of 14. He grew up with a love of classic cars. The Beetle is still parked proudly in Sander’s garage, and has since been joined by four other classic cars. Although, since buying it, Houdel has stripped it down to the last bolt and put it back together with the utmost precision. It’s just not possible to do this with new cars any more and that is precisely what attracts him to classic cars.

Sander does not want to miss a thing. That is why he makes annual visits to classic car fairs both at home and abroad. Blogs and magazines keep him up to date with the latest classic car news and trends. As an auctioneer, a beautiful Ferrari or an original Porsche 911 sets his heart racing. He mainly focuses on the whole picture - if the car has a beautiful paint job or if the details are correct. Of course, there has to be a check under the bonnet. Sander’s vast experience and passion mean he places beautiful lots on Catawiki every week.
