From Our Clients

The Congleton crew is your best option.

Taylor clearly understood the bond between an owner and his LR and told me that he would perform a complete assessment and give me an honest accounting of what it would to bring her back to life and back home to NY.

We’ll certainly be working with Congleton for all our Land Rover needs.

My husband and I recently purchased a 1995 Classic LWB ("Big Blue") from Congleton and we only have good things to say about the team there. We contacted them about viewing the Rover and they kindly coordinated to be available after regular business hours to accommodate our schedule that week.

My husband and I recently purchased a 1995 Classic LWB ("Big Blue") from Congleton and we only have good things to say about the team there. We contacted them about viewing the Rover and they kindly coordinated to be available after regular business hours to accommodate our schedule that week. Taylor walked us through the entire vehicle, answering all of our questions (no matter how small). He also walked us through what maintenance would look like over the years of ownership; highlighting the attention to detail he would give the vehicle when it came to him for service. Both Parker and Taylor have been amazing throughout the process, readily available by phone or email. We never felt pressure from them or sensed that they were getting impatient with our many questions. What really struck a cord with us was how much they care for the vehicles they service and sell. It's clear that nothing leaves their lot that they aren't 100% about and customer satisfaction is their first priority. That really gives you peace of mind when you take your Rover on the road, knowing that an expert (which Taylor clearly is) has worked on it and that he and Parker are only a call away if you need anything. The purchasing process was a breeze and Parker even delivered the vehicle to us! Needless to say, we're thrilled with Big Blue and look forward to years of Rover ownership. We'll certainly be working with Congleton for all our Land Rover needs.

Congleton Certified: The Worlds Finest Range Rover Classics

Phase I: Sourcing and Selection, Evaluation and Planning, and Teardown.

Sourcing and Selection

Restoring Range Rover Classics from the ground up by hand starts with finding the best candidates. We take the sourcing process very seriously, with our founder selecting each Range Rover Classic considered for a Congleton Certified Restoration. Everyday our team searches the country looking for the best Range Rover Classic candidates to present to our founder for review. Its interesting to consider that many of the Classic Range Rovers we purchase, are advertised as “Perfect” or “Fully Restored” when in reality they are, in some cases, 1000+ labor hours away from being stamped and numbered as a Congleton Certified Restoration. We have spent the last decade producing the finest Range Rovers in North America, and continue to invest in the best candidates, maintaining an extensive stock on and off-site for the needs of current clients and future clients alike.

Here at Congleton Service we understand the sentimental value that a vehicle can have to an owner and their family. On a few occasions we have been asked to restore classic trucks that were handed down from family members, giving us an opportunity to restore vehicles that can create generational memories for years to come. Bring us your vehicle, or select one from our extensive stock, and work with our team to design it to your exact specifications.

Evaluation and Planning

Once selected and transported to our facility, each Classic undergoes a rigorous program of examination and planning. The vehicle is photographed, evaluated, and then prepared for a complete teardown. There is no ”100 point” or even “1000 point inspection” that can characterize the way that these vehicles are reviewed, because every single nut, bolt and washer will be removed from the vehicle and every single piece of the vehicle will be addressed. This is the only way that Congleton Service can offer the confidence that comes with a Congleton Certified Restoration.

Teardown

Every Congleton Certified Restoration is entirely disassembled, with all 7400+ parts and components removed, evaluated, and organized. Most parts will be replaced with new genuine Land Rover parts, while others that are no longer available will be sent out to some of the nations best rebuilders and remanufacturers to be prepared for reintegration to the vehicle. Other rare, original components will be sent to specialists to be refinished, with no detail being overlooked. We elect to powder-coat many parts including the chassis and axles to ensure longevity and integrity, as well as give parts of the car a sharp satin black finish. All Congleton Certified Restorations are completely disassembled and reassembled by our experienced technicians and our founder Taylor Congleton. We choose to build Congleton Land Rovers in this manner, not because it’s easy, but so that we can offer our customers complete confidence and the knowledge that an expert has addressed every single component on the vehicle.

When original Land Rover hardware is not available our technicians source and select every bolt and screw necessary from various vendors to ensure the proper fit, and every single screw is set by hand, with every screw head facing the same angle when possible, as there is never a detail too small for a Congleton Certified Restoration. All bolts are treated and hand torqued to factory spec to ensure safety for our clients and their families. After spending decades tearing down and rebuilding Classic Land Rovers, we have identified the parts of the vehicle that are most vulnerable to rust and corrosion. When building these trucks we take the time to tape off and treat those vulnerable areas with Waxoyl. This protects these areas from seeing any moisture that can compromise the integrity of the build. Just another over the top measure taken by our team to ensure that we are building the most exceptional vehicles on the planet.
