Did you talk to Zach at Granger? They can handle this before you take delivery. I think the gent to contact was a member here Jay@grangerNo, im from enemy territory (cali) but I ordered my TRX from zach out there in Granger....
Im trying to find out if there is a good place anyone can recommend for a ceramic coating?
I figure its better to get the paint coated before I drive it back... Im not sure if Im going to ship it back. Because Id have to find a shipper as well
There is definitely a strong demand for rust free vehicles out here in the "rust belt." However, most of the time it's the older rust-free trucks brining premium money. I know of a few dealers operate under a business model where they haul vehicles in from the south, but it's almost always 10-20 year old trucks, not cars, vans or SUVs. I'm not sure if there is as large of a market for a rust free Honda Element or similar type vehicles, but that's not to say there isn't additional value to a buyer for a clean rust free example of any vehicle (which can be very hard to find out here).I have a question for you guys…
one of the cars we have…is a 2007 Honda Element (awd)
we bought it new right after I exited the mil and got a real job lol.
it’s been my wife’s daily driver since and has racked up 145000 miles. And if things wear they get replaced. Or like when the cat just got stolen, a new one put on and a shield…
anyways, the TRX was kind of a “my wife feels bad that I’m falling apart faster than the hospitals can reassemble me” purchase.
ao im debating selling the Honda and having her drive the suburban as a daily and since I’m just a house husband ferrying the kids around, that means the TrX will Be my vehicle. (The suburban is a 2015 Yukon Denali XL with 30k)
we live in enemy territory for now, and ordered from granger ram. I was considering shipping it back, or flying out and driving.
So if we plan on selling the Honda (which for some reason they go for $8-10k with twice the mileage here); I thought maybe I should drive the Honda out to Iowa, sell it there. Then drive the trx back.
I have to ppf and ceramic coat it there anyways. That can take a few days.
So I could put it up on Craigslist or Facebook market place and say “it’s going to be available for inspection/sale on these 3-4 days”
what is the demand for rust free one owner cars like this out there? Perfect for college kids and dog owners?
(The Uber eats, flower delivery etc type people love these cars for work stuff)
