Having an accident is not a pleasant time for anyone, the added hassle of getting your vehicle back can often be the biggest stress, particularly if it is something you have cherished for many years. Your vehicle can be your life-line, once it has been damaged you want it back on the road in the same or better than pre-accident condition. We can assist with negotiating more favourable settlements from insurance companies, very important for classic Land Rovers and Defenders. From very heavy structural damage, bent or twisted chassis components, door panels, wings, bumpers. roof panels, or just lighter scratches and scuffs, all is possible from our team when it comes to repairing your vehicle after an accident.
Protecting your vehicle from ageing and deterioration is a very cost effective action to take. Rustproofing is an essential part of giving your vehicle a far longer life and minimising expensive bodywork repairs and refurbishments. We have a dedicated Hot Wash and Waxoy centre where we can treat your vehicle, preventing corrosion and prolonging the effective life of your chassis, structure, and exposed components as well as all those important parts you don’t see such as inner door frames, bulkheads and chassis components.
If you lead a busy life and find yourself situated outside the UK or you’re just not in the position to take delivery of your vehicle after our works are complete then we are happy to store it for you. We often see customers who have accidents store their vehicles here as it is more convenient to get the insurance company to organise direct transport. Short term storage would attract no charge however longer term storage may include charges.
Export, Shipping or Loading
Let us deal with the transport of your vehicle across the nation or overseas. There are a variety of options for you to choose from including secure container shipment or roll on/roll off shipment where your vehicle will be driven on and off the boat. The latter option tends to be 20-30% cheaper however less secure. Don’t worry we can advise you on the best solution for what you need. We are also able to collect and delivery vehicles across mainland UK, with extended British Isles and EU countries also catered for. Worldwide shipping quotes can be provided, just get in touch.
