Pick your platform
The basis for a Rambler Vehicles Build is the vehicle itself. While we primarily work with Toyota’s (only due to their popularity) we have access to all makes and models. We source the vehicle on your behalf and handle all the logistics of transport and registration.
Design Your Build
We work with you to design your build through discussing what you want to use the vehicle for, you must haves and your wants. From here we price up the build and offer feedback based upon our experiences. Our goal is to build the right vehicle for your needs – we are not about “Game Changing Builds”. Our goal is practicality at a price that is reasonable.
Move to Purchase
Once the make, model and trim level of the vehicle and the build specifications has been finalised we move to the order stage. We take care of all aspects of the ordering process from the vehicle itself trough to the accessories and vehicle transport. We provide clear timeframes from the arrival of the vehicle, workshop booking times and build process.
We require an initial 10% deposit to order the vehicle with a further 50% deposit once the vehicle arrives at the dealership. The balance is due 72 hours prior to delivery.
This is the stage where it all comes together!
At this point in the process we review the build specification with you and the time frame – this is our final opportunity to make any changes.
Great care is taken by our team to protect your vehicle from damage during the build process – we treat each vehicle like its own. We communicate with you throughout the build ensuring you are up to date with progress including photos.
Each step of the build is checked off by the tradesman doing the work plus our workshop foreperson. Finally, the vehicle is put through an additional quality assurance process – this is to make sure every detail has been covered – this final process includes test driving your new vehicle (more than just around the block!) and a professional detail. When you pick up your new Rambler it is ready for adventure!
At the end of the build process we arrange a full walk through and handover of the vehicle. If you are local to us we do this in person – if the car is being shipped we do this via FaceTime® or Skype®.
This handover covers the vehicle itself (like a dealer handover) as well as explanation and demonstration of the fitted accessories.
We understand that many of our customers have existing finance arrangements either direct with a bank or via brokers. We are happy to work with these relationships and can provide the documentation required to assist them in making your dream a reality.
Given that our Rambler builds are considered outside the box for many lenders we do have access to a Finance Broker who is familiar with our products and trading terms. Should you wish to look at lending options please let us know and we can put you in touch.
The vehicle itself is covered by the manufacturers warranty period and conditions. Any part of the vehicle that we modify and/or accessory that we fit is covered by us. We offer a 3 year/100,000km warranty on all after market accessories.
The advantage of purchasing a Rambler Vehicle is we offer a nationwide support network and a central contact point. We assist in locating the nearest vehicle dealer to you as well as the booking process for any manufacturer related concerns. Our accessory range is primarily backed through the national network of TJM 4×4 Equipped stores and again we assist in the booking process for any concerns.
We want happy customers nationwide and understand that when things go wrong you want fast service to rectify you issue – this is our priority.
We register the vehicle on your behalf in Queensland or New South Wales.
Other states will require you to take the vehicle to your local transport department to register the vehicle. In these cases we provide you with the documents that you require to make the process simple.
All of our builds are done in Brisbane, Queensland however we can ship nationally.
We utilise the services of Prixcar to transport your new car to either your nearest depot or your door depending upon you needs. This process is not expensive with shipping starting from $600 to Sydney, $900 to Melbourne and $1900 to Perth. This can be quoted as part of your build.
We have some brands such as TJM 4×4 Equipped, Lightforce and Rhino Rack that are preferred brands, however we have no exclusive arrangements. Our priority is to our customers and building the vehicle to their needs.
We have access to all leading brands and are happy to source a customers preferred parts. We do offer advise to clients when we feel a product may not be fit for purpose however as we carry the warranty on the build.
We do reserve the right to refuse to fit products that may breach copy-write laws, not be road legal or may pose a safety risk to our clients.
We can offer a trade in service – this is handled by a third party.
