Imported vehicles should taken to your service garage by a transporter company (we can offer you a quote if you wish to use a transporter company). A full service should be carried out before it is driven. The vehicles have been at sea and not been driven for one to two months. We will accept no responsibility for the mechanical condition of your vehicle if this procedure is not carried out.
We do not guarantee against perishable worn parts such as tyres and breaks as these are easily worn parts due to wear and tear of the vehicle being used. We are not able to check before shipment unless mentioned otherwise in vehicle descriptions.
Vehicles with aftermarket modified parts are not guaranteed as we are not able to determine the quality of these parts compared to the standard parts. Vehicles however are inspected on purchase and any faults are listed in vehicle descriptions.
