Where KWE are commissioned to purchase the donor vehicle we require sufficient funds deposited beforehand. This sum is not subject to VAT. Following acquisition of the vehicle and assessing it we agree the scope and cost of works with the client. We then ask for a 30% deposit before works commence, a stage payment of 50% approximately 5 weeks later, and the balance on completion. See also our ‘How to Buy’ leaflet here.
Work then commences, the car is completed and the customer invited once more to inspect the vehicle prior to delivery. A typical payment schedule after the donor car is purchased goes like this:
Day 1: Agree specification and price of vehicle, make deposit payment of 30% (non-refundable).
Day 35: Body, engine and suspension ready for re-assembly. Agree any further specification changes make stage payment of 50% of total price.
Day 60: Car completed awaiting customer approval. Final balance payment made. Car delivered. The customer is welcome to view the process in detail, or can just leave it all to us!
A full statement of Terms and Conditions is available upon request. The principle applied is that of minimising risk to both parties in the event of mishap.
KWE warrants the quality of its workmanship for a period of one year from the date of delivery. Parts supplied and fitted by KWE are not covered, other than by the manufacturers’ warranty terms which may not be comprehensive and will not include removal and re-fitting costs. Resultant costs such as damage, recovery or missed appointments are specifically excluded. Further terms and conditions apply, such as voiding of warranty should the car be used for abnormal purposes including racing or trackdays. The car must also have been serviced, in accordance with KWE specification, by KWE, a Jaguar Main Dealer or other garage approved by KWE.

Changes in our payment terms
As of 13th January 2018 a law has come into force requiring companies who accept credit card payments to absorb the charge that the credit companies levy on such transactions. This levy is typically between 2.5% and 3% (more for American Express). With high value transactions such as ours, this levy is very significant and can be many hundreds of pounds which previously was passed on to the customer since credit cards are a convenience for the client, not the supplier.
KWE now regrets that it can no longer as of 23rd January 2018 accept credit cards as a means of payment. We are happy to accept debit cards, cheques and internet bank transfers.3:01 pm
