In 2020, just weeks before the world shut down due to Covid, we were about to deliver a gleaming red Fiat 500.
This Fiat 500 was the “bridesmaid” of a wedding in the UK.
We contact various shipping companies to get a quote and arrange delivery. The delivery date was mandatory, it had to be there before the wedding, otherwise it would no longer have made sense to deliver it.
The problem is that no shipping company dares to give us a certain delivery date. So, to avoid unpleasant surprises, we took the decision to load the Fiat 500 and deliver it ourselves to the UK, even if this would have meant a higher cost and 2 less people to work.
We load the classic Fiat 500 onto the trolley and off we go. UK direction!
Between motorways, ferries, hotels and last but not least, driving on the right in the UK, it was a great adventure, albeit expensive, but by now our mission was to guarantee the bride a car for her wedding day, the the rest was in the background.
Once we arrived at our destination, we covered the Fiat 500 with a car cover in the colors of the Italian flag and uncovered it in front of the bride and groom, who we also honored with a bottle of wine, as a wish from us.
It was 2018 when Andy contacted us to ask us to find him a classic Fiat 500. He explained how he was looking for it, and after a few weeks, his classic Fiat 500 was ready.
Nonetheless, I was full of anxiety. This wasn’t the usual Fiat 500 we sold, no. In fact, Andy intended to leave Puglia with his classic Fiat 500 and drive it to Spain, where he had moved with his family. An almost 2000km long journey aboard an air-cooled car and with over 50 years on his shoulders.
I remember checking and double-checking that Fiat 500 hundreds of times to make sure everything was okay.
Finally the big day arrives. Andy came to us with the typical smile of someone about to face an extraordinary adventure!
After admiring his Fiat 500 live, he got behind the wheel and drove off, but not before giving him my personal telephone number. If there were any problems, he could call me at any time.
We used to get updates about the trip during the trip. Everything was fine. The first day of travel was over.
On the second day, however, an unexpected event. Andy calls to tell us he has an electrical problem. We ask for the photos and discover that a connector has come off, probably due to the vibrations caused by the long journey. In a few minutes we solve the problem and the journey can start again.
The rest of the trip goes smoothly and there are no other problems.
Finally on the fourth day, Andy arrives at his destination.
And finally I too relax. This too is done!
