Car arrives safely in Australia & another lovely testimonial

August 22, 2021

I purchased  1987 Porsche Supersports SE sight unseen from Tom at Border Reivers.

Not having dealt with Tom previously or had ever imported a car I was a bit uncertain how the whole exercise would end up.

The description of the car and photo list was extensive however there are always doubts , I rang Tom and discussed the car and the import process and then decided to proceed with the purchase and import to Australia.

Tom recommended a shipping agent and then arranged delivery to their Hull depot after the car being serviced by Porsche in Glasgow, the car was then carefully loaded and secured in a container prior to shipping.

Once clearance was complete and the car delivered I was then most surprised with the overall condition and quality of the car.

The photos did it an injustice, it looks like it just rolled of the assembly line, absolutely amazing condition.

I would recommend Tom at Border Reivers to anyone looking for a quality classic car , you will certainly be pleased with the outcome.

Where do cars end up?

August 7, 2021

An interesting picture from our shop at Border Reivers on where cars end up when they leave here. The metallic red Porsche 911/964 was sent to Singer in America, the yellow Porsche 911/993 went to Thailand and the silver Porsche 356A was built for a client in N.Ireland

Another delighted client

Dear Tom and John,

A quick note to say thank you both for facilitating the purchase of the SC. I do admit that there was a point where I was getting a bit panicky. Having missed out on the car last time, and perhaps even the previous time, I didn’t want to see it slip through my hands again. The car is lovely. I knew the photos on the site were not recent, and I was worried that time might have taken its toll, but the car looked just as fresh as it did on the website. We drove down to Guildford over a couple of days without a problem. The car was noisy, the steering was heavy, the cabin was hot, and the suspension was not particularly compliant. In other words, it performed exactly as it would have done back in the day. I really do think it is a very pretty little thing; Sara is delighted with it. Anyway, once again, many thanks to the both of you. 

Many thanks and kind regards.

angle2EINE REISE NACH SCHOTTLANDPorsche 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!Thomas Eder aus Bayern Thomas Eder Racing his Porsche at the Nurburgring(Translated below)A TRIP TO SCOTLAND to veiw a 1959 Porsche 356A - Very good condition, built for racing!  As per the add, I fell in love with the car which was offered by Border Reivers, So a flight booked flown to  Scotland. 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 BayernThomas Eder Racing his Porsche at the Nurburgring
