You are welcome to schedule an inspection appointment. During this appointment, we will subject your vintage car to a detailed examination and discuss the next possible steps with you. If your vintage jewel is not roadworthy, you can have it collected by our transport service, which is specialised in transporting historic cars. Alternatively, we can visit you for an on-site inspection.
Should you decide to have repair work carried out by us, our next step is to contact the insurer. At this stage, the scope of the repair work and the costs are agreed so that the work can begin. In close cooperation with you and with the insurance company’s appraiser, we prepare a detailed cost estimate for the repair work. Throughout the process, we are always available to support all parties involved and to answer their questions.
Once the costs have been approved, we immediately begin the repair work. We draw on all the expertise and experience that we at SCHAD Originale have to offer. The name SCHAD Originale is synonymous with highest-quality restoration, and we are one of the best vintage automotive restorers in Europe. In the course of the repair work, every step is precisely documented, and any variation from the original repair plan is discussed with and approved by all parties involved before any work is carried out.
As soon as the repair work is completed, your precious vehicle is returned to you. We bill the repair costs directly to the insurers, leaving you free to immediately begin enjoying the pleasure of driving your vintage car again.
I chose Schad Originale for the restoration of my 300 SEL because they have a lots of experience with these new technologies. The vehicle was in a terrible condition. Only after the dry-ice blasting we could assess the amount of the work necessary to restore it. In fact, they have rebuilt the entire car. If you spend this much money you want to be sure it’s worth is. That is why for me treating the entire chassis with the vintage car cathodic dip coating was the only option. Now the car looks wonderful. And it is a great feeling to cruise around with this memorial family piece and not having to worry about corrosion ever again.
I would never have thought that the rear end of my car could look better after the accident than it had before. Your bodywork experts are true masters of their craft! Thank you so much for your wonderful work.
I am so moved to have my treasured classic back. Thank you for your support throughout the whole repair process. For me, having such a competent and reliable partner in such a difficult and complicated situation has been invaluable.
I searched for a long time to find a restorer to whom I could hand over my vintage car with confidence. At SCHAD, I had the feeling from the very beginning that I had found the right place. Your meticulous and high-quality work completely won me over.
It took several months before I could drive my beloved classic car again, but it was well worth the wait. Now that it has been fully restored, I know that I can pass my classic car on to the next generation with a clear conscience. Thank you for your truly exceptional work and the ongoing excellent support.
I have never seen this combination of craftsmanship and technology anywhere else. I am very impressed by the way in which my vintage car, which had been showing its age, has now become a real gem. Thank you!
