Motormedia is a motoring bookshop and has been active both buying and selling new and used motoring books for nearly 20 years.
We are based in Northamptonshire, very close to Silverstone Circuit. We have a stock of some 5,000 motor books, motor racing books, films and dvd's - many very hard to find.
We buy collections of car books from enthusiasts, have a book exchange service for our regular customers and sell on both Amazon and EBay where we have 100% feedback ratings.
A lifelong motoring enthusiast, rally driver and all-round petrolhead, our Managing Director started selling books as a test bed for the software that our sister company Dragon2000 makes for the motor trade. Part of their Dealer Management System controls the dealership's inventory of parts - substitute brake pads and oil filters for books and dvd's and you'll see the connection. It's very rare for Motormedia to show 1 copy in stock and for us to not be able to find it!
Unlike most of the 'warehouse' book sellers, we only list what we have physically in stock - not just a list of book titles that we are hoping to get from somewhere else. Normally, if you order a book from us, we will send it the same day, from stock.
We do sell on Amazon and Ebay but many of our out-of-print classic car books and motor racing books are sold directly through our website or from our office. Although we only sell transport related books, there is often a 'Fly Fishing' by J R Hartley moment when we unite a restoration guide or marque history book with a classic car owner or restorer!
Many of our customers are involved in motor racing themselves and, we often attend race meetings, rallies and motor club events - not as a seller, but as a participant. We can always arrange to bring books along if we are competing or spectating.
