RESTORATION AND IMPORTING Land Rover DEFENDERS:
The work carried out by TATC takes place at our workshop in the heart of Devon, England, as well as in our French and South African subsidiaries. We specialize in Land Rover Defender restorations, vehicle searches, inspections, and import compliance validation. We typically inspect between 6 to 8 vehicles for each one we buy for our restoration donor fleet, ensuring the vehicles we purchase are sound structurally and mechanically, but most importantly comply with US import rules. All our Defenders are extensively serviced and are provided with certificates of roadworthiness, the equivalent of a state inspection, prior to import.
FULL CUSTOM Land Rover DEFENDER RESTORATIONS
OR LIGHT REFURBISHMENTS PROJECTS:
Most of the work we do are complete frame-off full restorations, Land Rover Defenders that we custom build to order and ship direct to clients in the US. From a practical and financial standpoint, this makes complete sense to do at our workshops in Europe, and South Africa, as parts are more readily available, and much cheaper to source. We also have a team of dedicated engineers, mechanics and body shop specialists who intimately know the DNA of these trucks.
In addition to full restorations, we also do light refurbishment work on trucks we have been commissioned to buy for clients for import. Whether it’s simply installing new doors, Air Conditioning, auxiliary heating or upgrading to beautiful Exmoor Trim seats. This work is cheaper to do in the UK prior to import, and our team can help you make the right choices.
EXPORT AND IMPORT SERVICES:
As part of our service we also take care of all aspects of the export and import process of our Custom Land Rover Defenders for our clients. From completing the various customs filings, through to customs clearance, port handling, port collection and delivery to our client’s home on arrival. We work directly with specialist shipping lines, ground transport companies and registered export and import brokers. This provides peace of mind and a one-stop-shop for our clients.
We have an extensive specialist storage facility in the UK, located in Devon, just 3 hours south west of London, for pre-ordered and restoration project Land Rover Defenders and trucks waiting to be shipped to the USA.
