We received some unfortunate news from a work colleague in Northampton that their VW split screen had an engine fire which destroyed the amazing interior that Paul had made for them customised to their Wedding needs. Straight away Paul was in action getting wood and templates sorted to help get their VW back on the road for a Wedding on 22nd October.
It is one of our worst fears that the VW's will have such a devestating accident that they are off the road for any length of time as it will affect the buisiness and disappoint our couples who have booked. All our VW's are checked meticulously each week for any signs of mechanical issues or age related issues that may make the vehicles unsafe. This includes a raised inspection of the underside of each vehicle weekly and the regular change of oil to keep them running smoothly. The wheels and fuel line are checked monthly to ensure that all is in perfect order.
Unfortunately you cannot protect the vehicles from the inevitable accidents that may occur whilst on the road although the vehicles are driven at such a slow pace any accident would 99% be the fault of a third party individual. All our drivers are picked due to their love of the vehicles and respect for their age and value, this will reduce the risk of any accidents further.
Paul is a carpenter by trade and enjoys nothing more than the challenge of building customised interiors for VW enthusiats that are looking for a hand crafted professional finish to their VW. The benefits to this is the vehicle is kitted out to suit the individual taste and can accomodate the most unusual needs.
