Customers from the U.S. who are looking to get a Land Rover Defender often ask us to compare our product to the other builders. We thought it would be useful to provide a transparent outlook in the E.C.D. difference when working on your dream Land Rover or Jaguar.
E.C.D. and Black Bridge Motors both offer custom Land Rover Defenders, however, the process of creating a custom Defender is not simple and E.C.D. has taken this task with great pride with over 50+ mechanics who are both ASE certified and experts in Land Rover restorations.
Once in contact with someone at ECD or Black Ridge Motors, the process begins with a lengthy design process. However, at E.C.D. your car is created with exhaustive attention to detail, part by part until you are pleased with the appearance. You will be provided with digital renderings, 3D models, actual paint, and leather cuttings with stitching designs to help you comprehend the way your vehicle will be completed.
At E.C.D., our co-founders Scott, Elliot, and Tom have put a lot of focus on providing excellent customer service. This has led us to create an entire concierge department specifically for our clients’ build processes. Once your initial deposit is received, your personal build portal will be opened and you will receive bi-weekly updates from Elliot, the Project Manager, with photos, videos, and other information regarding your build. Caroline, our Concierge, will then contact you for an in-person design meeting at our Florida facility where over 450+ vehicles have been built.
Comparing the United States to the United Kingdom, there can be many differences between the two countries. Living in one or the other can have its own unique set of experiences and challenges.
In comparison with other options, the main benefit of E.C.D. is that it is located in Florida, making it possible to drop by and view leather samples, paint colors, the shop, or take a test drive with relative ease. This single factor is the start of many advantages. It is possible to visit the Rover Dome at any time, as we are situated in the United States, and most clients complete their trip in a day, including flights. In addition, deposits do not need to be wired overseas, saving any potential difficulty with international banking.
E.C.D. offers a wide selection of build options that other builders like Black Ridge Motors cannot provide; enabling you to have a daily driving classic vehicle that far outpaces the work provided by other builders.To start your vehicle is built in the World’s Largest Land Rover Restoration Center coming in at over 100,000 square feet and the ability to build 5 trucks simultaneously off our assembly lots. Working with E.C.D. is like night and day; from Puma dash additions and engine upgrade choices like electric and diesel, you won’t need to find independent mechanics or shops to work on the vehicle after it comes to the U.S. When it leaves our facility, it will be your dream build, and it will arrive as your dream build. Our services is totatlly in house. In fact, you can come for a tour and speak directly with the staff who will build your truck.
