AutoGraph Overland News

I’ve been building overland trucks for myself since 1982, and for clients since 2011. Between 2018 and 2021 in Australia I built six full-spec VDJ78 Troopcarriers and in November 2021 I decided to close this part of my business. 

The order book is CLOSED.  But I will consult and help you with your build.

 

 

 

 

In Autograph Overland's heyday. A VDJ Troopy built for Graham of California. This Troopy remains parked in Australia for Graham's yearly adventures.

Consultancy Service

CONSULTANCY SERVICE Q&A

I offer my services to consult on 4WD builds in Australia and South Africa. I can consult on an entire project, or a 1-hour session to get you going. They are done face-to-face on Zoom or MS Teams. I am also a specialist in touring Southern Africa and can advise on self-drive safaris in sub-equatorial Africa.

If this interests you, I suggest starting by using the contact form and in the subject write, OVERLAND CONSULT.

Long-term build consults receive a FREE 1-year subscription to THE OVERLAND WORKSHOP.

 

Please note that I’m a specialist in building tourers, and not dedicated off-road machines.

(Please don’t send 4wd questions or comment on Andrew’s videos using this form. Andrew won’t get to see them.)



Q1: Who would benefit most for a consult?

If you just starting out, and want to build an overland tourer yourself. I’ll steer you clear of the many minefields that await the unwary.

Q2. How does it work?

I offer one-on-one advice and personal guidance as you build your 4WD tourer. I have 40 years experience doing this and my catch phrase is ‘practicality and value for money’.

Q3. What’s it going to cost me?

Nothing. In fact, I can almost guarantee that if you take my advice, you will save a lot of it. No waste. No poor products that will soon need replacing. No chance of being bush-whacked by a salesman in a 4wd store.

Q4. But you are going to charge me. Yes?

Yes. You’ll pay A$350 for a 1 hour consult. 1 hour is normally sufficient for a brief overview for a build or trip. To hire me on a long term build, I might recommend a long-term consult, the fee being A$5000. This is best suited for those who would like on-going guidance as they build their tourer. And again, if you take my advice, you could easily save more than this fee as I direct you to purchase products, organise discounts, and keep you on track with your goals.

Q5. When is Andrew available?

We can arrange a mutually suitable time. Andrew avoids working weekends, but evenings are fine. If he’s travelling, we’ll just arrange a time around that.

Q6. How do I ask more questions before I decide?

Send us an email with a brief (BRIEF!) description of your goals and include where you think you’ll need the most help. Then we will know if the service we provide will be of value to you, and respond accordingly. Use the contact form linked here: https://www.4xoverland.com/aspw-videos/contact/

Q7. What’s the next best alternative to a direct consult?
