Grovebury Cars Dunstable went the extra mile to deliver a new vehicle to a couple in the Caribbean.
Elisabeth and Stennett Harvey got the SsangYong Korando Sports to replace their donkey to help on the farm they run in St Kitts.
The pair also run programmes to help keep young people out of trouble and provide a better alternative to joining gangs on the island.
Elisabeth said: “My husband and I were looking for a strong pick up for our farm in St Kitts and found the SsangYong Korando Sports at Grovebury Cars.
“On my way to St Kitts I made a stop in the UK to check it out and had it shipped to St Kitts,
“It was a bit of a nerve wrecking experience, but in the end the administrative part worked out fine.
“We are the first on the island of St Kitts with a SsangYong and get a lot of compliments for its looks and we’re really content with it, it is a sturdy farm vehicle.
“We love the strong 4WD and the loads it can take.
“It is also comfortable transport for our driving to town or to the beach.
“We will take good care of our new pick-up.”
George Viscogliosi, sales manager at the Dunstable branch, said: “Elisabeth contacted us from Austria and wanted a Ssangyong korando sports pick up truck for her farm in St Kitts.
“At first I thought it was a scam of some sort because of the nature of the request.
“Elisabeth came to see the car to finalise the deal then flew back to St Kitts.
“We then liaised with a shipping company and off the truck went. Two weeks later it arrived in St Kitts.”
