"I saw my dream car on a European eBay classified website. Much to my frustration, I was not able to contact the seller. The European eBay site requires that you set up an account that is verified by a code sent by text to your mobile phone. The problem was that the text code could only be sent to an EU mobile phone; a problem for me because I live in Canada. As an existing client of Alan’s, I asked if he could help me and it goes without saying that I would not own my dream car had Alan not made the introduction to the seller on my behalf. The seller used a representative to weed out internet tire kickers who would waste his time and Alan assured the associate that I was a serious buyer. The results speak for themselves"
- Robert, Canada.
"I had never shipped a vehicle or imported one into the United States. You made it easy and affordable. I appreciate your explanations, timely communications and professionalism.

"Years ago I bought a car overseas without viewing it. That turned out to be an expensive mistake with a restoration that cost twice as much as I expected. I promised myself I would never make that mistake again. COVID travel restrictions prevented me from viewing a car in Italy. I engaged ASMG Italia to do a pre-purchase inspection on my behalf. The written report was comprehensive and the pictures that Alan took told a very different story to the online pictures that the seller had posted. ASMG Italia prevented me from making another very expensive mistake. I highly recommend their services" - Bob, Canada.

"Having not bought a classic car before I was very aware of the risk of being seduced by a beautiful looking car, but not knowing what horrors could be hiding beneath the body panels. So when I discovered a car in Italy, it soon became clear that it was not practical for me to visit from the UK and I also needed an expert that knew what to look for. I discovered ASMG Italia on line and was soon impressed by Alan’s responsiveness, professionalism and rigour.

"I used the services of Al McNaughton Gisby a classic car project consultant from ASMG Italia. It came about whilst I was in perusal of finding my previously owned MGB. After recently advertising it in the Classic and Sports Car magazine, I received an unexpected email from Al, saying he found my MG for sale at a dealer’s garage in Turin, Italy. After confirming the chassis and engine numbers I took up Al’s services to do an inspection report of the vehicle. Al produced a superb fully in-depth inspection report, including photos, with this information I decided to purchase the vehicle, and I am now the proud owner of the MG I use to own 11 years ago! It’s quite an amazing story, but without Al’s help and services, none of this would have happened. We have stayed in contact ever since, reporting back progress of my MG and equally sharing our love of cars, especially the classics. I now look upon Al as a friend, and not just someone I made use of their services. I would definitely recommend Al and his services; he’s a very professional and caring guy, and shows a real genuine passion for cars" - Richard, Taunton UK.
"This is the second time Alan has consulted for me on period vehicle registrations. Originally it was through his Registration Consultancy for my GT40 and now through his expanded business. Spot on service” - Chris, Cheltenham UK.
