To supplement our Vehicle Storage Solutions, we offer a range of services, from the complete management of your prized asset to a spectacular photographic portfolio.
We are experienced in the process of setting up a hosting structure to buy your new vehicle as an export order, or similarly a structure to enable the purchase of a used vehicle “post-Brexit” that can come offshore and be registered for road use tax free.CONTACT US
Working with our regulated offshore fiduciary specialists and trust company partners, a new company structure can be quickly set up with minimal annual fees and ongoing maintenance costs, to host the ownership of your vehicle in the jurisdiction of Guernsey.CONTACT US
If you want your car registered for road use, we can liaise with our local Driver and Vehicle Licensing Department and present the vehicle for its road registration inspection. We can account for emissions duties and registration fees and, once registered, fit unique Guernsey registration plates.CONTACT US

Le Riche Automobile has been approved by Jersey Customs to provide agreed values for Customs purposes since 2016. It is often the requirement that a vehicle be accompanied by an accredited valuation certificate, and we are approved to provide this service.
Each vehicle is photographed in “High Resolution” from all datum points when on-boarded for the first time, and a condition report is sent to the owner. We can also provide additional photography for potential sale presentations or audit purposes. Please feel free to enquire if you need more images of your car.CONTACT US
You may have to move your vehicle onshore for Concours events, exhibitions and planned maintenance. Furthermore, to preserve their value, all vehicles require servicing, scheduled upgrades, and warranty work. We are fully conversant in moving vehicles onshore with the use of Customs Carnets and HMRC IPR (Inward Processing Relief). We work with Guernsey and Jersey Customs at all times to ensure the 6-month and 1-day situs requirement is properly logged with each movement to maintain the tax-free status of your vehicle.CONTACT US
Le Riche Automobile is an approved scrutineer for the Fédération Internationale des Véhicules Anciens. If you have ambitions to campaign your vehicle at events like the Mille Miglia, Monte Carlo Historique, or Le Mans Classic, please ask if you need new certification or a wholly new FIVA card as we are appointed to complete this process for you.CONTACT US
Superb quality images are the very essence of your vehicle and the starting point of your journey with us. We are passionate about creating images that capture each vehicle’s character: its contours, elegance and power. We understand that every vehicle, much like its owner, is different. We see this journey as a collaboration, initially to create your tailored photography brief and to become particularly exciting when designing a bespoke Legacy Book, should you choose this option. Rest assured that all our work is undertaken in the strictest confidence. Discretion and our customer’s privacy are equally important to us as our images and service quality. After the shoot, we carefully process the images, professionally retouching and editing to maximise creative potential and provide the highest levels of detail and clarity. Finished images are delivered at maximum resolution with an unlimited usage license.CONTACT US
"My Aston Martin Vanquish Shooting Brake by Zagato was offshored into storage through Le Riche Automobile. They provided a turn-key solution. I often travel through my work and time is such a precious resource. I needed a specialist to whom I could entrust my Zagato who would provide the necessary expertise to correctly export the car to ensure its VAT Qualified status was effective. They dealt with all aspects of this transaction, from ownership structuring, vehicle movement, liaising with their HMRC agents for the correct export notices to be provided and finally to offshore road registration. Their facility is excellent and the team is expert in everything they do. Highly recommended. "
"When I inherited my late husband’s classic car, I was not really focused on what it represented as an investment nor did I have any idea what should happen next. I am so glad I used Le Riche Automobile to advise me, they collected it and dealt with all aspects of storing it and managing its maintenance. Based on their guidance I am so pleased as its value has appreciated and at some point, my grandchildren will benefit from my husband’s pride and joy as his legacy. But presently I am happy its in safe hands. "
"Our 1934 3 ½ Litre Bentley was one of the first full coachwork restorations undertaken by Le Riche, in 1992. We were delighted with the result and over thirty years later the car still attracts admiring glances and comments wherever it goes - and this includes several continental European tours and multiple rallies, testament to the high standard of workmanship. A full car restoration doesn't come cheap, but as Henry Royce said, 'the quality remains when the price is forgotten."
"Having acquired a limited-edition evocation of a historic British Icon made by Bentley, the challenge was to arrange road registration, as the car, like many of these historic “tool room” copies was supplied unregistered. I was recommended Joe Castellino at Le Riche Automobile based offshore in the Channel Islands. Within a very short time he advised a solution to the issues which was efficient, quick and fair to other options put forward. My wife and I visited Joe in Jersey, and we spent an enjoyable day admiring interesting historic cars in the Le Riche Workshops and the wonderful sights and food of this pretty island. I highly recommend Joe at Le Riche Automobile to you for specialist consultancy on registration , location and storage."
