This service is aimed at the discerning buyer who wants to
buy a Porsche but either doesn't know where to start or doesn't have the time to
do it properly.
Whether itís a 1992 964-bodied RS, a 2003 996 Carrera 4S
or that elusive 1989 Carrera 3.2 you've always promised yourself, we can
We are asked frequently to help find specific Porsche
models. This bespoke service is designed around your requirements and the amount
of time you have or wish to devote to the sometimes lengthy business of tracking
the right car down and checking it out.
What we do
The first step is to discuss your needs. You might be
looking for your first Porsche and you are not sure whether to buy a classic or
a contemporary model. Alternatively, you may be an experienced Porsche owner
that knows exactly what you would like.
This is a personal, one to one service. Our team of Porsche
experts have specific areas of expertise in particular models of Porsche,
which can make choosing what model you want much easier. They can tell you
exactly why you should and shouldnít go for a specific model, and whether it
would suit your proposed use. Between us, we know every independent Porsche
dealer of note in central and southern England (probably 90 per cent of the mainstream
Porsche marketplace in the UK) and we know where to look for the right cars. Itís that kind of experience we will share with you when
we search for your next Porsche.
We make the assumption that you know roughly what sort of
Porsche you want (say a 996, 993 or a classic early 911), but we can discuss
your needs and suggest specific Porsche models that might suit you. We usually
ask you to complete a questionnaire about what sort of Porsche you wish, what
you are going to use it for, colour and option preferences, your budget and so
on. Then we go to work for you to identify a short list of candidates.
We will research the market, define a list of alternatives
and refine the list down to a possible shortlist. We or you can make the initial
telephone calls to the vendors to check availability and outline condition. You
can either have some fun visiting a selected short list of cars, or we can
filter the selection for you. After you have seen and driven the preferred
choice, you can instruct us to perform a comprehensive pre-purchase inspection.
If you wish we can negotiate the price for
you and if necessary arrange purchase of the car discreetly on your behalf.
For this service we charge by the hour. We ask for a £300+VAT deposit up front
and as we progress the search, we deduct our fees from this initial deposit at
an hourly rate of £60 + VAT. The deposit is as much to ensure your commitment
to the project as it is to cover our initial costs. We keep a timesheet to record the time spent on the
project and submit this to you approximately every two weeks. When we exhaust
the deposit, we will discuss progress and if approved, continue to search for
the right car for you. Ongoing fees are then deducted from your credit/debit
card two weekly in arrears, again at the rate of £60+VAT/hr. If we find the right
car for you before the deposit is exhausted, we will refund the unused balance.
A typical search cost usually runs to approximately £300 + VAT.
Any pre-purchase inspection cost will be as shown on the
main inspections page.
Timescales and discretion
Normally the search timescale for a mainstream model is
around four to eight weeks, but it does depend on the time of year. Limited editions and
specials will take longer. Of course, good communication with you is essential
and we will keep you in the loop as to what we are doing. If necessary, we may talk daily at
some points, but we will always email you weekly on progress. These reports
also show the amount of time we have expended to date on finding your Porsche.
