The Bishop+Rook Process
Building a Land Rover Defender to fit the needs of your lifestyle takes time. We’ve developed an effective process that puts you at the center of the design and build process.
PRE-BUILD – DREAM + DESIGN
Getting Started / Learning + Inspiration
One of our favorite parts of the build/refresh process is getting to know our customers and how they’re planning on using their new Defender. We’ve built enough vehicles over the years where we’ve gotten pretty good at knowing what types of builds will work for each person. We ask some simple questions such as: Will this be a second vehicle, your level of mechanical ability, family size, location where the vehicle is going to be driven, etc.
The first step could be over email, a phone call, or a visit to our design studio (that’s a fancy way of pretending our shop has polished floors and chill-out music pumping through the shop).
To help keep us a little more organized and dedicated the proper resources to the design process, we ask for a small deposit up-front, which is 100% refundable if you decide not to move forward.
NOTE: We’re never offended if you simply send us photos of vehicles – even if we didn’t build them – and say, “This, this is what I would like.” We’re more than happy to use inspiration from other places.
