HOW WE WORK WITH YOU
TO BUILD YOUR DREAM TOURING TRUCK
WE ARE ACCEPTING NEW BUILD ORDERS FOR TROOPCARRIER TOURERS.
NEW BUILD ORDERS.
Autograph Overland is now focussed on producing the world's best two-person tourer: The V8 Troopcarrier.
WE DO NOT BUILD ANY OTHER MODELS AT THIS TIME.
While our 2021 job card is full, 2022 is now open for orders. Our limit is four Autograph Troopy builds each year.
Lead times for new Land Cruisers in Australia is as long as 12 months. So don't wait..
FACE TO FACE
Every build starts with a face to face call, (Skype, Zoom, etc.) with Andrew.
This is time for you to ask Andrew anything you want, and for Andrew to understand your build requirements, and most importantly, the type of travel you love to do. It's also to help you decide if you want to work with Andrew, and for Andrew to decide if he can fulfil your expectations.
FACE TO FACE CONSULTATION FEES APPLY
An up-front payment of AU$250 for the first consultation applies. If Andrew builds your vehicle, this amount is refunded. If you decide not to go with Andrew, and you do the build yourself, then that's perfectly fine with us.
We work with new or unmodified vehicles.
If you have started your build, then we will not be interested in 'finishing' it for you.
We work with the best fitters we know and WE DECIDE on who fits what and how.
If you supply your own products, we will not fit them for you.
Any item you want that is not on our price list will not be considered for an AutoGraph build because any untried product goes against the principals of what we do and why our vehicles are so good.
NEW vs PRE-OWNED VEHICLES
In most instances we save our clients a considerable amount on the purchase price of a new vehicle. We only purchase vehicles in Western Australia. If you purchase a vehicle to send to us, we may decline to build pre-owned vehicles if they are more than 12 months old, or have ever been in any accident or have been modified in any way. We do not offer the service of purchasing pre-owned vehicles on behalf of client's.
REGISTRATIONS IN YOUR COUNTRY OF CHOICE
We can legally register the vehicle in your name, with a proxy in Australia. If we purchase a vehicle for you, this service is included in the deal (if required). We do not offer this service on vehicles we did not purchase on your behalf.
EXPORTING TO YOUR COUNTRY
Shipping a vehicle from here to wherever you are is the easy part. But, are you able to legally import a vehicle into your country? It's not easy in any country. There are laws that prohibit it in most. So, you must find out if it's legal in your country. I cannot do this for you. Also, we build right-hand-steering vehicles. Can they be registered in your country? If you want a LHD build, the most viable option is to buy it in your country and send it to us for conversion.
DATES AND TIMINGS
Typically, a big build takes 4-6 months from vehicle delivery and the ordering of components. New Land Cruiser 70-series delivery times in Australia now are 10-12 months!
DO WE GIVE PRODUCT ADVICE OR SELL ACCESSORIES?
No. Please don't contact us for quotes on individual accessories or for free advice on your personal 4WD build.
THE AFFECT OF COVID-19 ON BUILD TIMES
Stocks of suspensions, bull-bars and other accessories has also dried to a trickle. Which means, lead times for builds is now a minimum of six months. So if you want a Troopy delivered to you in 2022, don't wait to make contact.
