Transport to Mendig

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had their car delivered to Mendig from the UK (or vice versa)?

I am in discussions with Daniel for some work on my car. As much as I would love to spend time down there while they carry out the work, I think realistically all I will be able to manage is collection in person. If I could get the car delivered to Mendig in advance, Daniel could complete the work in his own time without me breathing down his neck, and then I can fly down to collect it once completed.

Keen to gain an idea of costs and would appreciate any recommended transportation people.

Thanks!

All I can say is I’m super jealous buddy!

Having the work done at the home Komotec is very special indeed and worth the effort. Looks like I’m going to have to plan an upgrade for myself in the new year to keep up 😉

I did the whole thing. 4 days total. Can see transport being that cheap and neither would I trust my car on a trailer. Have a look in some car magazines sure to be companies that specialise in this.

cheers

Thanks Mark. I think you posted this already so please feel free to provide the link if easier, but how did you do it logistically? What did you do while the work was being carried out?

Hi mate,

Drove down from the Wirral to take the Euro tunnel. Spent the following two days watching the full install and Dyno runs. Couple of hotels and good restaurants in Mendig to pass away the evenings. Link is here...

 

cheers

Legend, thanks Mark. That was what I was looking for! Will re-read with renewed interest :)

Makes sense😀. Surely waiting until spring so that you can do your post install testing on the ring would make sense too. 
 

If you need somewhere to stay near(ish) mendig I would highly recommend the longhorn saloon. Owned by Sabine Schmitz. We had a beer with her and she is even cooler in person than on tv

Worth the drive to Komo-tec, they're brilliant. I'm very glad I went direct!

Given the choice of either driving it there or driving it back, I’d rather drive it back

Obviously lol

For sure going direct to the home of Komotec for the install I think would be a very special experience and what I intend to do when the time is right!

Yes. They are very friendly and keen to show you their latest work.  Was lucky enough to visit them during a NS trip.
