When I realized in the 1970s that it was becoming increasingly difficult to get hold of original Mercedes spare parts, I began to search for them and sell them on to interested collectors. Over the decades, these first steps in the classic car business have turned into a brisk trade in rare vehicles in the premium segment, which has taken me on countless trips from Africa to Russia to South America, among other places.
My core business in Hamburg, founded as E. Thiesen KG (today Eberhard Thiesen GmbH & Co. KG), has been expanded since 2003 by two more independent companies in Hamburg and Berlin, from which I withdrew completely in the course of 2018.

With this claim, we have maintained a trusting relationship with our customers for decades. We are also happy to stand by your side in the event of an inheritance and help you with your sales intentions.
Vehicle search and collection building
With enthusiasm we support you to make the dream of your dream vehicle come true. When looking for such a car, you will benefit from our ability to assess originality and history as well as a well-founded appraisal of value. We have the opportunity to make vehicles available to our customers that are not officially offered on the market.
Regardless of whether you are looking for a single vehicle or want to build up or expand your collection, we would be happy to provide you with professional support in your project.
If you are considering changing your vehicle stock, we also offer you the option of taking your vehicle in part exchange or exchanging it for another vehicle from our portfolio.
When buying a collector's vehicle, financial issues often play a not inconsiderable role. We advise you on leasing options and all types of vehicle financing. In doing so, we rely on solid partners for the respective business area and accompany you in all necessary steps. If necessary, tax aspects are also taken into account individually when you make your purchase.
