Warranty Statement for Border Reivers Classic Cars.

This may well be your first purchase of this type of car, perhaps you are already an avid enthusiast. Whatever the case, we are sure that you will understand that the car which is new to you has already been on the road for many years & has in most cases seen considerable use. These cars are very different to modern cars.

Border Reivers range of cars span over six decades of motoring, so you can imagine the difficulty in deciding on an appropriate warranty policy for this range of car types, ages & condition. Our policy on pre-delivery preparation has been focused on safety, and for that reason, even though almost all cars come to us with a current M.O.T.  We prepare them to a standard we believe to be acceptable and submit them for an M.O.T,  by an independent testing station. The standard of these tests is a National one and should be uniform.  Monitored by the DVLA.  Our experience shows that most of the cars we appraise would fail our pre-M.O.T examination without any repair work or adjustment. It’s a fact that because of the testers unfamiliarity with older cars and inconsistencies when deciding on what is an acceptable amount of wear on an older car, no two testing stations we have encountered would give the same test result on a single example of our type of car.

Having prepared the cars ourselves to what we judge to be safe and useable standard, we carry out a function check and an appropriate service prior to delivery.

We rely on our customers goodwill in accepting that these cars are not new, mearly pre-loved & we are not trying to renovate them to be comparable with modern cars. This is an enthusiast based business and many of our customers are enthusiasts & home restorers. Most accept that they are getting a better deal with more security than buying from a private seller but the cars are old & simply can’t be expected to provide a modern cars level of comfort & fault free reliability. We hope the new owner accept that he is mearly the current custodian of these fine cars & we trust you will treat them with the respect its age deserves .

Border Reivers cannot check or verify the authenticity of the chassis or VIN numbers under which a vehicle is offered, We rely on the sellers description. Buyers should take particular care to verify the authenticity of a vehicle that is claimed to have important racing, rallying or ‘ex-works’ history as it was common in period for a competition vehicle of a single identity to have more than one chassis, body or other mechanical components. This may have happened several times, both in a vehicle’s ‘works’ career and thereafter in private owners hands. Sometimes ‘works’ vehicles were fitted with different registration plates, so that a vehicle could meet particular event’s start date deadline. These historical factors may lead to there being in existence multiple and competing claimants to the same vehicle identity.
