Customer satisfaction

“I really did not know how Riaan and the team pulled this one off.

I bought the car sight unseen from overseas and after receiving the car I realised that I had bought a very bad lemon.

There was just so much rust – rust everywhere.

The purchase was made and now I was stuck with a sixties icon, filled with rust.

I had to get someone reliable to turn my lemon into a unicorn.  I needed someone that knew how to repair large pieces of rust.

I am so glad that I found the guys at Inhim Restorations.

Riaan’s team put all my concerns to rest. They did a magnificent job at fixing every sigle piece of rust. I received photos of the repairs during the process and I was confident that the work was done properly.

I was however also pleasantly surprised by all of the other work on the car. The new interior was absolutely great and the paintwork was perfect.

It is great to know that you can hand someone a large problem like my Pagoda and they will execute it effortlessly.

After buying a lemon one will understand that when you receive a restored car, registered and ready to drive you cannot be anything else than joyful and thankful.

I was so happy in my dealing with Inhim Classic Resto’s. The guys were very professional, thorough and always kept me abreast of progress.

Thank you for turning a bad purchase into an enjoyable end product. You will certainly see me again in the future”.
