HOW WE WORK WITH YOU
TO BUILD YOUR DREAM TOURING TRUCK
WE ARE ACCEPTING NEW BUILD ORDERS.
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 will go though the options list with you to help you make the best choices for your needs.
We will not entertain adding any items or consider any custom design adaptations for you.
And it's because we've proven every component on every build. We won't introduce unknown factors into the final product.
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, and have ever been in any accident, no matter how small. 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. Vehicle delivery times can be two weeks if you are very lucky and its available (not common) or 3 months when ordered new.
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.
NEW BUILD ORDERS.
Autograph Overland is now focussed on producing the world's best Troopcarrier true off-road touring machines. We've narrowed our product list to what we do best. Troopcarriers!
We build a max of four at any one time. Our job card is currently full until October. But, new Land Cruisers are taking four months to arrive in Australia! So make contact if you are thinking about ordering in July 2021.
THE AFFECT OF COVID-19 ON BUILD TIMES
Overseas travel restrictions due to COVID-19 in Australia has meant that stock of all Toyota Land Cruisers has been reduced to zero. Which means a 4 month wait for new stock and that may get longer as Covid-19 affects in Japan. 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 2021, don't wait to make contact.
