About us

A professional online auction and networking platform for Historic Military Vehicles and associated equipment - powered by Military Vehicle experts - where passion, engineering and historical expertise meet maximum convenience and confidence for both Buyers and Sellers.

As a co-owner of BAIV BV, one of the most respected high-end classic military vehicle restoration companies in the world, Ivo Rigter Sr. saw a clear need for taking the complexity and uncertainties out of the trade in historic military vehicles and tanks. 

The result is TracksandTrade, a platform where users can purchase a classic military vehicle, safe in the knowledge that its provenance is sound. The team behind the platform also offers possible restoration solutions and assistance in obtaining the necessary permits and licenses to ensure that the vehicle arrives safely at its destination after the change of ownership.
