I would like to take a little time and tell you all about my encounter with David at Atlanta Cruisers. I have put this man through the ringer asking him questions about the salisburry front end, then the rear end, then in private about getting me a sankey trailer. The whole time I was very up front with him, telling him I have no money to buy until I had another deal go through. I want everybody to know that the willingness , of David, to help and search was unsurpassed. To me he has really gone above and beyond the meaning of customer service. I recommend him to anyone that is looking for large Land Rover products.
In the long run I will be getting a Sankey trailer and a Salsiburry rear end with disc brakes from him.
Email him and tell him what you are looking for and I bet you will have the same encounter I did.
Thanks David and good luck in your venture!!
Regards
Abe

same here, heard nothing but good stuff about him. He contacted me once as I need some bulkhead repair done, but ATL is 5 hours from here. hoping to get it done locally but if I did go his route, I feel he'd do a good job.

I've had a few interactions with him, mostly of the phone/email nature, and likewise have been stunned by his willingness to help, good attitude in general, and technical knowledge. I'm actually working on trying to give him some business - great gut feeling with this guy, and he seems to treat people like he'd want to be treated. We're a tough crowd, but he knows that pride in what he does and a good reputation will go far.

Like I said as long as you are trying he is right alongside you all the way. He will work to make it happen. I think he is a fine addition to the vendors we have in the US.

Well, let me pile on. David was sending me real time updates on his trip to the UK, offered me a service related discount on parts and work, and has offered to install my new headliner free of charge which will include cutting out the sunroof. I will definately continue to utilize David for future Rover purchases.

I was at his shop last year and saw several Toyotas he was working on. Very nice work.

Dave is hands down the most straightforward rover shop in the country. I have personally hauled 2 chassis and 3 engines from his shop and have seen some of the restoration work he has done. I liked Dave so much he's rebuilding my entire D90 with parts that he has sourced from his contact from the UK. He's very responsive and very enthusiastic about his work.

Highly recommended.

Jason

David is indeed a great guy. I had a problem with a radiator I got from him, (it leaked), and he sent out a new one pronto (which didn't leak). I thought I'd be SOL but David treats his customers like friends.
Without him my daily driver 90 wouldn't be daily driving!

Better be careful...the thing that makes ATL Cruiser great will be its downfall if we all start going there!

Have to agree! I'd only add that his back office/shop support is equally great as well. Recently I ordered a full 300tdi kit from David and through the whole process he has been professional and non-condensending. A quality tough to find in people that know what they are doing. The couple times I've called his shop those that answer have been equally professional and great to work with.

All the continued luck David and ATL Gang!

Damn......I am all teary eyed....


Thanks a lot, this really does mean a lot to all of us. Most folks that call during shop hours will get to speak to Mark. Although he is the Captain of the Pansy Patrol he is the one who faces my wrath and makes stuff happen; I am the talker.... If he could only read my mind all would be well

We are sort of overwhelmed but in a good way.....

To chime in...when stranded David was the first person to offer to overnight me the part I needed so I could get home and said we could work out the details at a later date...he will be getting my money when I need a new diesel kit

David introduced me to my wife.

He also delivered my first child.
