Here’s how it works:
We discuss what type of car & ownership experience you are looking for, budget and timeline.
You pay us a $500 sourcing deposit in order to begin. This lets us know you’re serious about buying before we spend the time searching, talking to owners, arranging inspections, etc.
We find every available example (listed and unlisted) that matches your criteria. We dig into the list and narrow down based on rust, mechanical condition, service history, etc. We present you with the curated list. You pick your favorites, and we dig further in - getting inspections, negotiating price, etc. If you don't like any of them or have developed more preferences after seeing the list, we keep looking until we find one you love.
Once we've found your dream car, you pay 60% of the final, estimated cost in order for us to purchase and ship it.
We export it, ship it, import it, collect it and get a clean US title (or if it's an American spec car, simply ship it from A to B). If you’d like us to do any work on the vehicle at our shop, we can. Once titled, you pay the remaining 40% and come pick it up or we ship it straight to your door.
All fees (export, shipping, import, title, etc) are passed on to you at cost, with no markups. You simply pay us for our time. So if we negotiate more off the purchase price, you get a better final price. If we get a good deal on shipping, you get a better final price. In addition to the sourcing deposit of $500, we add charge $4000 for an import and $750 for a purchase within the US. No hidden costs.
You may also cherry pick parts of our service. For example, you source the car yourself and we handle export, import, and title. Or, we source the car and export it, and you handle import and title. Please inquire directly and we can give you pricing.
So you want a Porsche 911. It looks like fun. But do you know the difference between a 1970 911T and a 1971 911S? Do you know if any of the seven German car service shops within a 100 mile radius of you are trustworthy? Do you know what your six month service bill is going to look like? Do you know what the car is going to be worth in four years? Let us guide you through it. We find out how much you want to spend, what you want your driving and ownership experience to be like, and potential financial gain and depreciation to match you with the perfect classic. Whether you’re looking for a project car or a show car, let us take the guesswork and speculation out of the buying experience.
When looking for the perfect car we don’t let international borders impede the search, because more often than not, the grass really is greener on the other side. You can get on Craigslist yourself and search for the Porsche you want, and maybe you’ll find a satisfactory one nearby. But perhaps there is a lower miles example in your color preference with documents for days, across the country. Or perhaps you don’t even know about the car of your dreams yet, because it’s hiding in an old barn in a little village in the Polish countryside. Let us get it for you. Most of this business is coffee and handshakes. We have a trusted network throughout the US and Europe to both find cars and inspect them in person. When we find your dream car, we ask all the right questions so you don't have to. In the car industry, surprises are standard. We don’t leave any stone unturned.
Shipping a car from one state to another might seem straightforward, but if you don’t know what you’re doing thing go very wrong. There are dozens and dozens of moving parts to get a car from Europe to the US. We know what questions to ask. We know whom to work with. We know which ports are efficient, and which are full of red tape. We have streamlined the process and oversee the entire thing – we are accountable. We save you money, we save you time, and we save you headaches.
