Testimonials

Mr Smallman – Newcastle

“I won the Mercedes CL500. I’ve found Bridge Classic Cars the very best people to deal with. They are the only ones that fill me with confidence even before I won! Great prizes, complete transparency and nothing is too much for them! Keep up the great work 👍😊“

Mr Genlloud – Suffolk

“Absolutely delighted with the renewed headlining – superb job displaying tremendous skill and the considerable care taken not to harm the vulnerable materials of this 80 year old unrestored Alvis”

Mr Bache – Southampton

“I’m writing this review because I’m telling you now that this is 100% real. I wasn’t sure about it at first because I had mixed emotions, never really participate in things like this. I used to put on football bets for a bit of fun on the weekend and won nothing, I think personally that I have better chances with better odds buying a ticket with these guys. I bought one ticket and mine was the lucky one. I’m so happy. My Chevrolet Corvette was delivered this morning and it was a dream. The car is in mint condition. All the staff were very accommodating, answered the phone at any time of the day and gave me all the information I needed. I would strongly recommend Bridge Classic Cars to anyone. With tickets under £10 is nothing. OK mine was £17.50 but at the end of the day I own a American muscle car 💪 the buzz is amazing! Buy your tickets and you never know you could be a happy lucky winner like me.”

Mrs Atkins – St Albans

“A huge thank you to everyone that has worked on our little Morris over the last year. I appreciate it was a much larger job than at first thought but the results are amazing – you are very talented people. It was a very emotional moment when she was unloaded from the truck. I can’t wait to be able to take her out for a drive to a country pub and take her to our local classic car shows. Thank you all once again.” Caroline, James and Charlotte

Mr Masters

“I see other similar competitions on social media but they are not run half as well and there is definitely a doubt as to the final draw with them. Charlotte clearly demonstrates the equipment and the draw is transparent ,cars are top notch . In a lock down culture businesses have to adapt in other ways or go under and thats exactly what you have done bravo”

Mr Reilly – Essex

“As a winner, I can confirm the competitions are real! I saw the 1st white MG offered and before buying a ticket Googled around and was pleased to see an established business behind it all which convinced me buying a ticket was ‘safe’. The competitions have been great through the lockdowns, and provide a little bit of hope and excitement through these strange times.When buying a ticket or 2( or, 3 or 4…) it gives a little bit of hope we might win, especially with good odds of these competitions. But if we’re honest, we don’t truly expect to win. But I have imagined many of the competition cars being in my garage. And strangely, I still buy a few tickets for more competitions. What’s the probability of lightning striking twice?”

Mr Cork – Norfolk

“I’m a believer it would nice to win one ,Bridge you have made dreams come true for people”

Mr Stone – Paignton

“Your competitions are very transparent, all info upfront, well organised. Plus like your website to follow the in depth restorations on the various cars you have. Have done Trustpilot few months ago for you, as you are probably one of the best of this type of competitions on Facebook”

Mr Harcus – Aberdeenshire

“I am a winner !!! When I looked at first I was a bit sceptical about the competition, but after looking on the website I thought why not give it a go!!! £17.50 would hardly wet your lips in the pub. Could not believe it when I got the e-mail to say I had won!!! Told my wife, she watched the draw Car was delivered the next week to Aberdeenshire by two very professional guys. Over the moon with it”

Mr Macdonald – London

“You should make a TV program along the lines of Wheeler Dealers or car SOS but with competition cars… I’d watch it!”

Mr Setter – Plymouth

“Bridge classic Cars are doing a fantastic job by brightening up our lives with the chance of winning something amazing. I buy tickets for your competitions now rather than wasting money on the lottery as the odds are far better. Keep up the good work guys and roll on tomorrow at 7pm. “

Mr Bone – Norfolk

“They’re good folk, a friend had his MGA restored there this year. The race E-Type and Jensens are splendid!”

Mr Rendon – Sudbury, Suffolk

“Congrats on the business, competitions and all your social media pages, just great to see those classic being brought back to life! Awesome! Keep up the good work!”

Mr Casco – London

Mr Casco, winner of our Lotus Esprit Competition “Hello guys, just thought I would send you a few pics of the car, it’s still super weird to go downstairs and see it there! Thank you.“

Mr Oswald – Lowestoft, Suffolk

“I just wanted to write and let you know that the little car does indeed now run and drive very well. I took it out for a little ride out yesterday and am pleased to say it performed very well. I have to say that I have been impressed with your professional and speedy response with regard to rectifying the issues the car had. I have now let people know about my lucky win and have been pleased to be able to let a few sceptical types know that the competitions are indeed genuine and the cars are very real.”

Mr Callow – Worcestershire

“Thank you Bridge Classics, cannot fault how you ran the competition transparently. Congratulations to the winner ??when I win the Premium Bonds I’ll come to you for my E-Type”

Mr Klompstra – Netherlands

“The TVR has been well received in the Netherlands and Russell’s Transport has done a good job. We have already started the weekend with some dis-assembly work and making a plan and a schedule. We are going to thoroughly restore the entire car and make it ready for racing again. Thanks again for selling this piece of TVR history.”

Mr Dodman – Rendlesham

“Can’t thank you enough, from start to finish,  my experience at Bridge Classic Cars has been outstanding. Please thank Darren for the amazing job he did on my Spitfire. I’m sure I’ll be back to you in the future for further projects. Thanks again”

Mr Norman – Managing Director, Vauxhall

“For my fifth classic car experience and after having sworn never to do another and an interval of fifteen years [two of the five were verging on the fraudulent in quality terms], I turned to Gordon and Craig Ranson of Bridge Classic Cars near Ipswich. In thirteen months the nut and bolt rebuild of my choice of the very rare and unsought after 1975 rubber bumper MGB in Tundra Green not only surpasses my expectations but is so convincing that I have started a second concours project with them!” Stephen Norman – Managing Director, Vauxhall

Mr Wilson – Colchester, Essex

“Just wanted to say how much smoother my Pantera feels after the work you have done on it. There used to be a bit of a mid-range dip in power but that has now disappeared. It obviously pulls much better than before and has less vibrations, so over all very pleased.”

Mrs Kulyski – Toronto, Canada

“I write to thank you for allowing me to see the wonderful skilful work that is done in your plant. I am so impressed with what is achieved by the great work to these beautiful cars back to life. On checking your website I see you have a new build going on so hearty congratulations on that. It looks great. I wish to further congratulate you and the men who work with you for their passion for the work that is so very evident. It is such a privilege and treat to have been allowed a visit to your premises. I will never forget your kindness in allowing this.”

Mr Belford

“Hi, I’m the former owner of the Jensen 541 S (prototype) that you have been restoring. I’ve been following the progress of its rebirth online over the past months and now it is complete it looks stunning, well done to all those skills for returning her to her former glory.”

Mr White – Ipswich, Suffolk

“Dear SVEC members. I wish to compliment the services I have received from Bridge Classic Cars Restorers. I arranged to meet Gordon (Owner) at the Bridge Classic and Sports Car Show at Pettistree on the 26th August 2018. (As was advertised on a flyer in a summer newsletter) The upholstery on my 30 year old BMW 635CSi was in need of repair. The leather on the driver’s seat had perished and both front seats were in need of refurbishing and various pieces of trim within the cabin needed refitting. I arrived at the show and parked in the Classic Car area and walked toward the showroom to find on-route, a replica of Dave Pearce’s 320 Superstock! That made me smile! I then walked to the showroom and was immediately impressed by not only the quality of the prestigious cars being restored, (XK, E Type Jag’s, Aston Martin’s…) but the immaculate state of both the showroom and workshops. The floors are spotless! And they did a good job! The replacement biscuit coloured leather in my Beema has matched well with the original colour, it all fits well and although one of my requests to refit the upholstery to the driver’s door had been overlooked, my car was re-collected, the work was undertaken, returned to me and at no further cost. Honest business men! I would also like to compliment Gordon’s son Craig who markets the company and has introduced updates on work being undertaken to your car online. Modern technology put to good use! David White”

Mr Paget – Chichester, West Sussex

“Top guys. Lovely workshop and some very worthy projects and a team with superb restoration skills. I was absolutely spoilt with time and effort from the team. Thanks to all!”

Mrs King – Ipswich, Suffolk

“The car looks and sounds stunning, we got there in the end! I am thrilled with it, thank you so much and thank the guys too…I love them all. I love glitter too!”

Mr Jankowski – Cornwall

“Just a note to let you know the car has arrived safely in Cornwall and thank you for sorting out my mothers car. My mother would be delighted with what you have done, it was her pride and joy. “It’s for me and my handbag” was her claim, but her grandchildren loved to ride in it, squashing into the back.”

Mr Woods – Chelmsford, Essex

“Been using this garage for many years now and would never consider trying anywhere else. First class service every time and very reasonably priced, nothing is ever too much for these guys, and they will do all they can to help, you would be crazy NOT to use them.”

Mrs Adams – Ipswich, Suffolk

“Absolutely brilliant service received. Took the time to come back over to the car afterwards to show us what was wrong as well as telling us. Will definitely be back for any work need doing for MOT “

Mrs Smith – Long Melford, Suffolk

“Pete came to my rescue today. He came out really quickly and within no time knew exactly what was wrong with my car. He fixed the issue quickly and I had my car back the same day. Couldn’t recommended enough.”

Mr Merson

Received a lovely email this evening from George Merson… “Craig. I just looked at all of the restoration pictures of “Finnigen”, my 51 MG TD. I must say you did a fantastic restoration, the car looks absolutely fantastic. It should be good for another 60 years. I do hope the new owner appreciates all the work you and your employees put into the restoration. And of  course I hope you made a good profit. Take care.  George”

Mr Goldsmith – Ipswich, Suffolk

“Just a quick message to let you know about the red MGB GT you put a wiring loom in for me. I would just like to say how happy and pleased I am with the work undertaken. Its very nice for everything to be working on the car and not to jiggle the wires round anymore, to get lights working.  The service was fantastic and allowing me to drop and pick the car up on a Saturday morning was very good of you. I would have no hesitation in recommending you. Many Thanks”

Mr Turner – Colchester, Essex

“Dear Pete, I would like to thank you both very much for the friendly service you have provided for me over many years on my current two cars and previous ones I have owned. You have always been as helpful as possible and willing to provide help and advice straight away, if at all possible. I have always been impressed with your knowledge of vehicles and your professional and genuine approach. Given my experience, I am sure that current and future customers will be very satisfied with your service.”

Mr Tye – Hadleigh, Suffolk

“Excellent service by Bridge Classic Cars. I was very impressed with their professional approach. It is nice to find a genuine garage. Thank you again”

Mr and Mrs Johnson – Ipswich, Suffolk

“Hi, just an email to thank you and your colleagues for all your hard work carried out on the Granada. We found the pictures on your website when it was under going different stages of the respray. She looks stunning and now drives like she used to when we first owned her in 1994. Regards, two very happy customers Mr and Mrs Johnson.”

Mr Grant – Bacton, Suffolk

“I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with the restoration work you did on my beloved Midget. I was worried that you might be sniffy about the job as it is just a Midget. I should not have worried. From day 1 your care and attention was beyond anything I could have imagined. The quality of work is fabulous and receives rave reviews from other classic car owners I meet. The fact that you tried to chase down a new badge plinth and then oversaw the restoration of the original plinth was a small example of your commitment to doing the right thing throughout. I felt you were as thrilled with the outcome of the restoration as I was. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone. The fact that I immediately asked if you could take on my 1966 Massey Ferguson 35 for restoration should be evidence enough that your work is outstanding.”

Mr Good – Henley On Thames, Oxfordshire

eBay Sale – 1976 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow 1 – Restoration Project “Again thank you and I thought you might appreciate this note, good to deal with honest people! Note from my mechanic: The old girl is on a ramp, nothing really bad to report 🙂 A nice buy and for its age in good shape, a good service and change all fluids, attend to the leaky rocker covers and hose and it should give good service for some time to come.”

Mr Stemp – Ipswich, Suffolk

“Having recently purchased a 35th anniversary Ford Mustang GT from these guys I quickly worked out what a professional, friendly and helpful company they were to deal with.” See the review on our Facebook page

Mrs King – Ipswich, Suffolk

“Thank you for the recent re-upholstery work you completed on my Spitfire driving seat. I was extremely pleased with the quality of work done, speed of service, cost and professionalism. This work hasn’t been a snap decision on my part, I’ve been looking for a garage to do this work for three plus years (my husband says a lot longer), but never found, until now, anyone I was happy to leave my car with. It is a loved and cherished car. Thank you for all your help.”

Mr Hooker – Stafford, Staffordshire

“I recently purchased a Mk2 RS2000 from Bridge Classic Cars. From the first phone call I found Gordon and the team very easy to deal with and nothing was too much trouble. I arranged a viewing and the car was exactly as listed. I was encouraged to give the car a full inspection including putting it on the ramp to look underneath and was given as much time as I wanted to inspect the car and its paperwork. Any little bits and pieces were listed by the team and sorted prior to collection. A very pleasant and easy purchase, I would highly recommend them”

Mr and Mrs Fry – Droitwich, Worcestershire

“We are very pleased that we found Bridge Classic Cars. We have wanted an Austin Nippy for some time and Asa was more than happy to carry out little things that we found could be improved on. Nothing was too much trouble.”

Mr Tolchard, Sudbury, Suffolk

“I have now bought 2 classic cars off Craig and his team at Bridge Classic Cars. The service I have received on both purchases as been second to none. The cars were fully prepared and everything they said they were going to do they did. I could not recommend them enough for classic car purchases and for looking after the servicing and day to day maintenance on any classic vehicle.”

Mr Payne – Selsey, West Sussex

“I recently brought my 1947 Humber Super Snipe from Gordon and Asa at Bridge Classic Cars of Ipswich. I am delighted with the car and the service I received. Even after the sale, they really went the extra mile getting me the old service history and advice. I would recommend to anyone.”
