FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DO I REGISTER A VEHICLE
All vehicles have been titled with the Utah DMV and they will be sold with a clean and clear Utah title. With title in hand you will register the vehicle just like any other used vehicle purchase. The buyer is responsible and liable for registering the vehicle in there home State. They must satisfy all applicable State registration requirements, including, but not limited to, vehicle registration/title fees, safety certification, sales tax, to meet State inspection and transfer of ownership.
WHAT IS AN MOT
An MOT test (Ministry of Transport) is an annual test of vehicle safety, roadworthiness, emissions required for all vehicles in the United Kingdon. All vehicles in the United Kingdom must have pasted an MOT test to be road legal. The decision to pass or fail each presented vehicle comes down to these following guidelines. The MOT test covers, lighting, signaling equipment, steering (including suspension), brakes, tires and wheels, seat belts, body, structure, chassis (rust) and general items. Also including body and components such as spoilers, bumpers and mirror housings, exhaust, fuel and emissions. All our vehicles imported come with a British MOT certificate of roadworthiness and safety, a significantly higher standard than any USA inspection.
ARE THESE LEGAL TO OWN
Yes all vehicles we offer for sale have been legally imported to the USA and they conform to all the rules and regulations. All vehicles imported fall under federal regulation of the 25 year old rule, as such, they are exempt from Federal DOT and EPA regulations allowing them to be lawfully imported, registered and titled in the USA . This is why all of our vehicles are sold with a clean & clear DMV UTAH Title. They have passed all Department of Transport, Environmental Protection Agency, Customs & Boarder Patrol inspections and are 100% legally here in the USA.
WHY ARE IMPORTED VEHICLES SO EXPENSIVE
It’s basic supply and demand. With so few models produced and available for sale in the U.S. market (and the Defender being one of the coolest and now iconic cars on the planet) they are a desirable vehicle to own. With production of these vehicles now over, they are now a worthy investment. Defenders have proven to hold their value exceptionally well. We try to keep our Defenders original and accessible for everyone to enjoy. Our inventory is stocked with a variety of model years, engine types, conditions, optional extra and specifications and are all priced accordingly.
WHERE DO I GET PARTS
Yes! With around 2 million Defenders produced and 70 percent still on the road, parts are still readily available. These are simple machines and simple engines to maintain and with almost zero electronics there is less to brake or fail. Most local mechanics find these vehicles easy to work on and when you need help with parts or accessories just contact us and we can certainly help you.
