This is the biggest regular Autojumble in the UK, much bigger than Lincoln Autojumble, Stickney Autojumble, and Market Rasen Autojumble.
I’ve been making the pilgrimage to Newark on and off for twenty years, my first visits were in those pre internet days of buying and selling. For many years I arrived with a large van full of used motorcycle parts that I’d fetched from my Essex workshop, and only left once I’d sold the lot! Stack it high and keep it cheap was my jumbling mantra. In later years I joined the online selling bandwagon but still found selling at Newark had plenty of advantages over that auction site!
Being able to sell on mass is the biggest attraction, and if you keep your asking prices sensible you will always do well, having a friendly haggle is also part of the Newark experience.
In recent times I’ve returned to the rumble in the jumble on a regular basis. Newark is much more than just an autojumble, many friendships forged online are cemented at these events. I’ve built up a great network of traders with whom transactions take place at each event. The social side is a major part of Sunday at Newark.
It’s a cost effective way to buy and sell not just motorcycle parts, but also workshop kit and the like.
I look forward to each jumble and it’s definitely one of the more fun ways to conduct business and have some pleasure.
Earlybird gate opens at 8am
