Do you have disabled parking at the Car boot sale?

Yes. The Haverhill Car Boot Sale provides an area for disabled parking for all Car Boot Sales apart from the Haverhill Show Car Boot. At busy times the disabled area may be full. Marshals will try their best to provide the most suitable parking space available. The disabled area is located very close to the boot sale stall holder's areas.

The disabled parking bays at our boot sales are strictly for disabled badge holders only! We appreciate that there are non-badge holders that have mobility issues but we will always give priority to those that have been certified by doctors and are authorised to hold an official blue badge.

If you are not a badge holder but have mobility issues or concerns then our parking marshals will try to assist you as best they can. BUT please be aware parking access is only available to the official blue badge.

Please follow the Marshalls instructions as they are best placed to advise you on the most suitable location for you to park.

You must show the traffic marshals your official blue badge in order to use the designated parking bay. 

The marshal will check that the person registered as the holder is in the vehicle! (Back to top)

Can I arrive early?

Stall Holders are asked to arrive from 7 am onwards 

Due to the open nature of the site General Buyers are also permitted entry from 7 am 

We prefer everyone to arrive at the car boot sale at the correct times.  If you do arrive early then please be prepared to wait. (Back to top)

Do you charge more for large cars?

No. All cars, 4x4's and people carriers are charged one single price.

Vans and commercial sized vehicles are charged at a different tariff. Stall holders who require additional space on top of the standard pitch sizes offered will be charged an additional fee at our car boot sale. (Back to top)

Can I get food and drink?

Yes. There are catering units at our car boot sale both providing hot and cold refreshments. 

We also have a regular local ice cream van during the warmer weeks. The Haverhill Car Boot Sales does not allow the sale of  any foods or beverages without prior agreement. (Back to top)

Can I park with a friend?

Yes. It's a great way of doing a car boot sale and is usually not a problem at our event.  We simply ask that associated vehicles arrive together and that you inform the marshal (upon arrival) that they are to be parked together. (Back to top)

Can I reserve a pitch at the car boot sale?

No. It's not necessary to book unless you have specific need. If you do have specific requirements please email us and we'll do our best to accommodate you. haverhillshow@outlook.com. (Back to top)

Can I leave my Junk behind?

No. We have no facilities for disposing of unwanted car boot items and therefore ask that all items are taken off site with you at the end of the sale.

There is a household reycling facility in Haverhill . Website

Site Address: Off Chalkstone Way, Haverhill, Suffolk, CB9 7UR (Off the A143 - Sturmer Road) (Back to top)

Can I get away earlier?

Yes. This is usually not a problem. The lanes set out at the car boot sale are wide enough for emergency vehicle access and therefore wide enough for early departing stall holders. If you require assistance please get the attention of a car boot marshal who will be only too pleased to assist you.  (Back to top)

Do you supply tables?

No. We are not able to offer this service.(Back to top)

Do you allow Charity Stalls?

Yes. But all Charity Stalls are still required to pay a Stall Pitch Fee. The Haverhill Car Boot Sale is always keen to support registered charities and local good causes. We offer a 50% pitch discount for local charities and good causes only when booked in advance and are able to prove that funds raised are going to Charity (such as an email from the charity or good cause itself).

Student Fundraising, e.g. for overseas residential experience is permitted and can also apply for a 50% discount. Proof of participation in such activities is required in advance (from an educational body).

We will issue a pass via email for Charity Stall and Student Fundraising Car Booters to show the Marshall on arrival.

Failure to provide sufficient evidence will result in the stall holder paying the standard pitch fee for their vehicle type.

Please contact us using the email haverhillshow@outlook.com  (Back to top)

Do you provide toilets?

Yes. The Haverhill Car Boot Sales has excellent accessibility to an excellent public toilet block situated in one corner of the on the Recreation Ground.(Back to top)

Can I sell home produce at the Car Boot Sale?

Yes. Our car boot sale supports genuine home produce such as fruit, vegetables, plants and even a small amount of home baked cakes.

Some stall holders have pushed the limits of what is 'home-produce' and therefore anyone wishing to sell food or beverage items must notify us with a request in advance.

It is vital for all sellers of consumable foods, check that they are acting within the parameters of the law, Environment agency and trading standards. (Back to top)

Can I sell food at the car boot?

We do not allow the sale of any food stuffs or any beverages without prior arrangement. We do welcome small scale home made produce if notified in advance.  Anyone attempting to sell food or beverage without prior permission will be removed.

There are no catering vacancies at present. (Back to top)


Please follow the latest advice from https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus

Help control the virus

To protect yourself and others, when you leave home you must:

It is your responsibility to adopt these principles wherever possible. None of these principles can completely remove the risk of catching coronavirus on their own. You should use them all wherever and whenever appropriate.

1. Keep your distance from people outside your household or support bubble

Whilst recognising this will not always be possible, it is important to be aware that the risk of infection increases the closer you are to another person with the virus, and the amount of time you spend in close contact with them. Therefore, you are unlikely to be infected if you walk past another person in the street.

The government recommends that you keep two metres away from people as a precaution or one metre when you can mitigate the risk by taking other precautions in this list.

Haverhill Car Boot Sales will be operating a one way system and promoting social distancing at all times

2. Avoid being face-to-face with people if they are outside your household or support bubble

You are at higher risk of being directly exposed to respiratory droplets (released by talking or coughing) when you are within two metres of someone and have face-to-face contact with them. You can lower the risk of infection if you stay side-to-side rather than facing someone. The key thing is not to be too close to people outside your household or support bubble. If you must, keep it as brief as possible.

3. Keep your hands and face as clean as possible

Wash your hands often using soap and water, and dry them thoroughly.

Where available, use sanitiser outside your home, especially as you enter a building and after you have had contact with surfaces. Avoid touching your face.

Haverhill Car Boot Sales will have a hand sanitiser station for buyers and sellers to use.

4. Avoid crowded spaces

You can lower the risks of transmission by reducing the number of people you come into close contact with. For example, avoid peak travel times on public transport, where possible and avoid densely crowded areas. Small groups in small spaces pose a risk as well as large, close crowds.

During the Pandemic we are asking that buyers and sellers observe the restriction of a  maximumum of 6 people at each stall at any one time

5. Face coverings at Car Boot Sales

Face coverings do not replace social distancing. If you have symptoms of COVID-19 (cough, and/or high temperature, and/or loss of, or change in, your normal sense of smell or taste - anosmia), you and your household must isolate at home: wearing a face covering does not change this. You should arrange to have a test to see if you have COVID-19.

A face covering is not the same as the surgical masks or respirators used by healthcare and other workers as part of personal protective equipment. These should continue to be reserved for those who need them to protect against risks in their workplace, such as health and care workers, and those in industrial settings, like those exposed to dust hazards.

Haverhill Car Boot Sales recommend that Face Coverings and gloves should be worn, but this is at the discretion of the individual in outdoor settings.

6 Hygiene

The virus can exist for up to 72 hours on surfaces. Therefore, frequent cleaning is particularly important for communal surfaces or items that are touched.

Haverhill Car Boot Sales recommends that buyers refrain from touching an item unless necessary.
