Accident Repair

I live in Jacksonville Florida. i have a 1986 tithonius 110. i have been involved in a collision today it was not not my fault. I have insurance but most companies do not know where to get parts let alone the value of such a car. Has anyone got any advice on what to do or who can fix my beloved landrover.

Thanks Jon

Safari HP will be the best source in Orlando

Then you have other forum members like

The Rover Shop in Ft Lauderdale

BOBCAT, Himalaya, and few more , but not exactly sure their locations and / or if they do repair work

I recently bought a Tithonus that had been rear ended- hard!! Mark at Himalaya has a couple Tithonus they are parting, so could be a good resource regardless who does the repairs...

Accident Repair

For insurance you'll need a specialist shop, someone who does restorations etc to write up the claim for the adjuster. You'd do yourself well to also build a list of all parts to supply the repair shop and the adjuster. When my 85 was damaged by a hauler whose trailer caught fire, this was the route I went to make sure I got exactly what they should pay.

If Safari can also do that for you your in the best hands then.

We've done 4 accident repairs to include frame swaps while working with the insurance companies (not always easy). We can assist along the way. Give me a call if you need anything.

i'm one of the 4 (rollover) and Safari put some time in with the local shop for sure. greatly appreciated. Completely, agree with Flananuts. I went to a highly regarded local shop that does resto work, but this was something that was an outlier for them. i came in with a pretty good list and have done my own frame swaps on series trucks and was able to get them over the 'fear/uncertainty of the unkown'....once they got going they worked with Steve and my insurance. very happy, never thought I'd get her back the way i had her (row 110).
