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.
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 purchase 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.
I also offer a commission sales service for clients looking to sell their vehicles, this has proven to work extremely well.
I provide many services to help the seller as well as the buyer, whether it is to export a vehicle from Finland or to 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 specialize in classic cars. This idea has taken a while to put into practice, also meant updating the website.
As from 2023 we now also run the occasional auctions, the auctions will hopefully grow with time.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I hope you like what I have on offer.
