But, please put "[RAA]" in the subject heading so that it will get through our Spam filters. We used to deal with over 1000 spam eMails a day and some genuine eMails were not getting through.

Although vehicles can occasionally be dropped off or collected outside of these hours by arrangement. By arrangement, I mean that you have to let us know first by eMail, not just turn up at 8am and hope that someone will be here. They won't be unless you tell us first, and you'll be hanging around for an hour. In particular, I've got to take my son to college some mornings.
Please include your chassis number (VIN) if at all possible as we can look your car up on a database that will tell us what engine, trim, date of manufacture, and any other variations it might have and that'll save us asking lots of repetitive questions that you might not know the answer to!
Map:Please click on the map for directions to the village from your location and greater detail. Please note that using satnav or another mapping system and our postcode will get you close, but not close enough to find us... So, please use our directions.
If you're intending to arrive before 9:30am or after 6pm, our opening hours, please make sure you have agreed that with us first or there will be no-one here. If you turned up at your bank half an hour before it opened, you wouldn't expect anyone to be there either!
Please note comments about farmers with shotguns at the end of these instructions. This means you, and it means whoever is giving you a lift too. There are no exceptions! Do not drive onto the farmer's land under any circumstances. There have been far too many morons who have decided to do handbrake turns in the middle of the farmer's BBQ and it's ruined it for the rest of us who are more considerate.
Get to the B2177 from either the A32 or M27 J9, J10, or J11.
Drive west from Portsmouth or east from Wickham down the B2177.
From the B2177 turn north at the North Boarhunt garage and drive north along Trampers Lane.
Drive past the North Boarhunt Social Club on your right.
Satnavs will usually run out of steam about now.
After you pass the recreation ground on your right, you will see a post box on your right and a sign on your left marked "Private Drive, No Turning. Liberty Lodge. The Pines". Turn left up here.
The workshop is the FIRST building on your left about 50 yards up the farm track. It is attached to a small farm house. There will be Italian cars everywhere! STOP NOW.
Do not carry on driving until you reach a dead end and some farm buildings, are being stared at by a horse, and have a shotgun pointed at you by an angry farmer. You've gone too far.
Do not stop and block the farm track as it's in use all the time, not just by us, this means your lift too. If we know you're coming, there will be space for you unless otherwise discussed.
Do not turn around at the top of the track as it's someone else's property and someone else's working environment and they don't like jumping out of the way of cars as they go about their business - which is fruit and veg wholesaling. This means lorries and forklift trucks manoeuvring. As you don't have permission to be there, if you get hit by a forklift then you are liable for all damage and your insurance will be invalid, so you'll have to pay for it yourself.
If you are getting a lift back, please inform your other driver of the above. If may be better for them to remain at the bottom of the track and wait for you to drop the car off. If they are waiting at the bottom of the track, please suggest that they park alongside the huge wide stretch of road with no houses right in front of them. For some reason, people seem to prefer to drive until they find the narrowest bit of road and block a driveway instead!
