The story behind Koskin Import..

” There is just something about classic cars that you don’t get with your modern-day cars” – Jason Holland, CEO.

I have always had a fascination for classic cars, since I can remember I have been surrounded by them. My father used to run a classic car business in Germany when we lived there, mainly importing vehicles from America. I was only young then and have fond memories of being driven to school in some amazing classics, of course as a young boy my first choices were always the sporty cars.

The below photos are of me and my father in 1988 on a trip to the USA purchasing some vehicles. Also my fathers show room in Germany in the 80’s.

Koskin Import About Us

I moved to Finland with my family from the UK in 2009, learnt to speak Finnish and it wasn’t long before I bought my first classic. A 1965 Ford Cortina 1500GT.

After owning the Cortina for a while, I found a Ford Escort 1600 Sport that took my fancy. Unfortunately to be able to purchase the Escort, I had to sell the Cortina. I advertised the Cortina for sale and to my surprise the main inquiries were from outside of Finland, it wasn’t long before it sold and headed to the UK.

I then purchased the Ford Escort 1600 Sport. After a while it got sold abroad again to enable me to buy something different. This went on for a few years and is basically how Koskin Import was founded in 2014, from a hobby to a business.

My business has been growing steadily since, and I have managed to create great world-wide customer relations. I also corporate with alike businesses and have managed to build a trustworthy name amongst the field.

Towards the end of 2019 I expanded my business services and created a new marketing website, this was due to being personally offered more cars than I could handle. Now the public and traders can advertise their vehicles themselves on my website, and purchase vehicles via my site. I provide many services to help the seller as well as the buyer, whether it is to export a vehicle from Finland or purchase a vehicle from abroad and import it to Finland..I am here to help. This is what I do every day, and this is my expertise. I am focused on providing an honest service with the highest levels of customer satisfaction.

At the beginning of 2021 I had this idea of adding an auction facility to my site, as in Finland there are no auction sites that specialise in classic cars. This idea has taken a while to put into practice, also meant updating the website again. I am very close to launching this new service, currently we are in the final testing stages. I will announce to everyone when the auction site is up and running.
