Speciality and Pre-Purchase
At C.A.R.S we have had a number of interesting requests when it comes to restoration. We’ve restored a small 1930/40’s childrens’ tricycle. Quad bikes and beach buggies have been repaired and brought back to life again. Plastic welding repairs to motor bikes (farm and road) can usually be undertaken depending on the type of plastic and damage. So if you have a special project you’re considering bring it into the workshop or email us photos and what your thoughts are and we’ll see what can be done.
If you are looking at importing a vehicle from overseas or purchasing one in New Zealand it pays to have someone check it out in person before you invest your hard earned dollars on what can potentially be a disastrous nightmare. Steve is happy to go with you and check a vehicle over and give you a run down on its condition and what will be required to make it roadworthy and NZ compliant. Photos and images online can be extremely misleading. Holes in floor pans can be hidden by carpets. Rust can be covered with tape or newspaper and paint. What is acceptable panel repair work overseas may not be acceptance to New Zealand standards. Better to spend a few hundred dollars at the beginning checking it all out properly than to find you’ve invested thousands in a lemon.
