When a car becomes that little bit more

October 30, 2017

Dr Roberts (above) with his car.

We got this lovely e-mail and picture from the late Dr Roberts son James, regarding his Fathers car.

Dear Mr Fitzsimmons,
I was pleased to see my late father’s 911E is in good hands and hope it will continue to provide enjoyment and pleasure for those who use it. I was with him when he purchased it in ’73 and remember him phoning John Fitzpatrick shortly afterwards to arrange collection. Some 44 years later, it was touching to see Fitz reacquainted with the car. This was my father’s fourth Porsche, preceded by a 356c, 356sc (regretted selling..) and a 2.0 911S Sportomatic. He was quite an enthusiast and very much attached to the marque since the early ’60s.
The attached photo of car & owner taken around twelve years ago, I hope you can add it to your pictorial library of its ownership, though doubtless there will be plenty more to come in future years!
With best wishes.
James Roberts

We have extended our enclosed transporter facility to anyone with a cherished motor vehicle

October 30, 2017

Border Reivers are up and down the county almost weekly so we thought we would offer our service to anyone with a cherished motor vehicle. If your anything like me (anal) and hate having to entrust your pride and joy to some grease covered cowboy with oil engrained boots,  jumping over your car, damaging your wheels with wheel clamps. Leaving your car exposed to the elements & salt, Driving without proper insurance cover.

Border Reivers are experienced in the transportation of all types of classics and sports cars. Our trucks are all enclosed, kept clean, regularly serviced & properly insured. Our latest truck in the pictures is a slide back which is perfect for cars with a low ground clearance.

Clients, that have become friends, enjoying the last dry days before the salt

Testimonial

angle2 EINE REISE NACH SCHOTTLAND Porsche 356 A Bj. 1959 - sehr guter Zustand, für Rennen aufgebaut! Anzeige gefunden, sofort in das Auto verliebt - Anbieter Border Reivers?? Wo- Schottland?? Also, einen Flug gebucht nach Edinburgh und kurzer Hand auf die Insel geflogen. Ganz idyllisch ein Stück hinter Glasgow an einem See gelegen hat sich die Firma "Border Reivers" versteckt und auf hochwertige Autos spezialisiert. Der Inhaber - Tom Fitzsimmons ist mehr als freundlich uns hilfsbereit und versucht seinen Kunden fast jeden Wunsch von den Augen abzulesen, hat uns spät nachts noch zum Essen ausgeführt und kurz vor Mitternacht nach zurück nach Glasgow gefahren. Wir konnten in einer blitzsauberen Halle das Objekt der Begierde in aller Ruhe inspizieren (und alle anderen Auto's auch noch) und durften danach eine Probefahrt durch die Highlands absolvieren. Sämtliche Sonderwünsche und Umbauten wurden durch Border Reivers noch erledigt und gegen Entgelt wurde der Wagen noch bis vor die Haustüre in Deutschland geliefert. Ein wirklich perfekter und freundlicher Service der nicht selbstverständlich ist. Many thanks Tom, it was great to make business with you!

Quite a bit away from idyllic Glasgow situated on a lake,is where the company "Border Reivers" hides and specializes in high quality cars. The owner - Tom Fitzsimmons is more than friendly to us and very helpful. Caters to his customers every whim. He gave us late night run to Glasgow for a meat, shortly before midnight after back after it. We were in a spotless showroom, full of the objects of desire. He gave us peace to inspect and allowed us to undergo a test drive through the highlands afterwards. We agreed the purchase and some special requests and modifications to be carried out which were done by Border Reivers. We paid for the car and it was delivered to our doorstep in Munich, Germany in a covered transporter. A truly perfect and friendly service which is not self-evident. Many thanks Tom, it was great to do business with you! ThomasEder aus Bayern Thomas Eder Racing his Porsche at the Nurburgring
