The start of the process

Danny and Nobby Clarke contacted us looking for a replacement for their under-powered Unimog U90. They visited us and we discussed several options and settled on a low kms ex German council U1200. We agreed on a trade in price for the U90. They requested that the replacement Unimog be refurbished and repainted in Mercedes silver and asked us to fit their Palfinger crane and to modify the Unimog body to suit.

The Result

We delivered the Unimog within budget and on time and Danny commented - 

We just wanted to say a massive thank you to you all, what a firm, we couldn’t recommend you all highly enough, from the friendliness, the efficiency and the quality of the overall product, absolutely 1st class, and we will be looking forward to working with you again on future projects.

Happy customers

Danny's under-powered U90

The U90 was in good condition but was simply not up to the job that it was needed for.

The chosen one

The U1200 before work commenced.

In the workshop

Work commenced on rectifying the defects on the Unimog.

Cab repairs

Carrying out welding and bodywork repairs.

Replacing o/s and n/s front wings and replacing drivers door with a good used door.

Body work repairs complete

All bodywork repairs now completed and ready for paint

Test fitting of crane before paint

We built a robust subframe to mount the Palfinger crane to the Unimog chassis.

Before getting the Unimog painted we fitted the crane in order to test it thoroughly.

Crane fitted

When the Unimog returned from painting we re-fitted the crane and dropped on the rear body which we had modified to suit.


Refurbished Unimog

All work completed to customers specification.

All ready for collection.

Mog at work

The Unimog didn't stay clean for long as Danny pressed it in to service straight away.

Ben Mauger

"First contact with Atkinson Vos became a success, smooth ordering parts, great prices, great support. Fully satisfied customer from Sweden."

Lars-Erik Bammis Ohlsson

When I bought my U1000 “Rustbucket” , Simon gave me a fair & frank appraisal of its condition. The mog was cleaned and shipped professionally with no issues upon landing here in Australia. Since then, AV has provided me with excellent spares support and the occasional bit of advice. Posting was always prompt and economical via Royal Mail – this has taken a lot of the pain out of restoration. Highly recommended.

Pieter

Atkinson Vos not only supplied my Unimog some years ago but they have been ever present when I needed any advice or assistance. My Unimog recently underwent a full refurbishment in their workshop and I have to say the result has been nothing short of superb. My Moggy is not only in great mechanical shape but it looks great too. Top marks Atkinson Vos.

James Mc Donnell, Ireland

Whenever I drive my MOG on to their yard, I have a feeling of excitement about the opportunities for upgrade and improvement that Atkinson Vos offers. Anything is possible, and everything is done to a very high standard!. Atkinson Vos prepared my Unimog to an excellent standard. Their aftersales service is great too.

Roelf

Hi Simon, The shims arrived last week. My unimog is now running perfectly! Thank you a lot for the excellent service, I really appreciate it!

Casper Hanekamp

We have been using Atkinson Vos for a number of years now, they have carried out some upgrades and all servicing and repairs, their staff are friendly and always willing to help. The workshop guys always offer advice and easy fix solutions over the phone and on the odd occasion visited our workshop to view and inspect the vehicle. I would not hesitate to recommend the company, Thanks to all the staff.

"We have always prided ourselves with finding the best qualified people available, be they doctors, lawyers, engineers, or whomever. We applied the same process to finding our dream Mog Expedition Camper and have not been disappointed with Atkinson Vos. Paul and Emma both have done superb jobs answering our many questions and leading us through the purchasing / export / import process. Based on their performance to date, we are confident Atkinson Vos support will be there in the future where ever our travels may take us.”
