It’s challenging to pinpoint the exact starting point of this journey. Numerous moments come to mind: Sam driving a Gulf War Land Rover 90 at the age of 12, or his purchase of a 500 Cinquecento from an auction as his first car. However, throughout all these experiences, one thing has remained constant—cars have always been at the heart of Sam’s endeavours.
Samuel Lloyd & Co was established with the firm belief that cars should be driven and enjoyed by many, not just a privileged few. As a passionate Pancontinental export dealership, we tirelessly search for forgotten cars and reintroduce them to a global audience. We firmly believe that the acquisition of collectible cars should not be restricted by geographical borders. With this principle in mind, we offer our clients a comprehensive 360 approach to overseas car purchases. Through our in-house export, import, and shipping services, we handle everything from the point of purchase to the point of delivery. This distinctive approach sets us apart from the rest.
Meet the small and dynamic group that’s full of passion for all things automotive, yet packed with energy to deliver showstopper service.
Sam, a proud Kiwi and Scot, was raised in South West London and has a deep-rooted passion for travel and flip-flops. He initially embarked on a career in London’s dynamic events industry but soon redirected his focus to study Real Estate at Oxford Brooks University. It was during his studies that Sam discovered his love for combining classic cars and travel. This newfound passion inspired him to establish Samuel Lloyd & Co in 2017, where he honed his skills in uncovering forgotten yet collectible cars.
Sam’s firm belief that buyers of accessible classic cars should not be restricted by borders compelled him to develop a comprehensive understanding of the international shipping, export, and import landscape.
With his expertise in navigating the complexities of international logistics, Sam strives to ensure a seamless and enjoyable journey for every client.
