Welcome to Automobilia-UK, the premier UK site for vintage petrol pumps , Globes and Signs !!!!!
Our base is in Burton on Trent where we have a showroom and workshops , these are used to showcase items to TV and film companies for prop hire , and to show regular clients our stock.
We supply props for TV and film and our clients include A list celebrities and knights of the realm .
Visiting some amazing houses and collections around the UK we meet some very interesting custormers all with a story to tell , but in our business we have to protect the privacy and for security the locations of such collections, we often spend time with " A " list customers who are only too pleased to show us around but on leaving we have to respect their privacy and maintain a working relationship and they are greatful knowing we will do just that. Often we put in our adverts that our reputation means a great deal , our discretion also means we maintain the trust of our clients.
Our vintage pumps and items have appeared at Chris Evans Car-Fest, London Classic Car Show press day, Goodwood Revival , BBC The One Show and on TV in Pawn Stars UK, Turbo Pickers , Salvage Hunter with Drew Pritchard and "T", ITV Jekyll and Hyde and The London Classic Car Show. We have recently taken part in a film shoot for an American show with Storage Hunter Jesse McClure .We have also taken part in the popular BBC radio show with Mark Forrest.
