    Hi Everyone!

    In my time when I am not fixing my Honda, I am the president of the National Student Kitesurfing Association, we run the largest Kitesurfing Competition in the UK alongside the British Kite Sports Association (BKSA). I have a problem and you lot on HK seem to be a great bunch so I thought I would put it to you!

    We are currently looking for a 4x4 vehicle to borrow for the event for the Judges to use while working at the Event.

    I was wondering if anyone here is a Dealer owner or has any contacts that could help us?

    We are happy to pay for vehicle expenses and can offer promotion for any company that can offer us a vehicle. We have a very tight budget as a not for profit so would love to avoid renting!

    This is very short notice as our resident vehicle is currently broken! The Event is on the weekend of the 7th of March.

    Our Current sponsors are:
    Red Bull - They are alerting bringing a big truck but it is needed elsewhere!
    Best Kiteboarding UK
    Flexifoil
    Spotify
    Kitemare
    514 Elemental

    We have good working relationships with all of these brands and they have worked with them successfully for years. We would be happy to look at adding others.

    We will also have some of the best kite surfers in the world attending the event to support us.

    Please message me or give me a call if you can help!!

    Cheers :Smile:

    I don't want to sound negative but there are a few concerns to lending\borrowing vehicles for an organised event,The problem you face is a lot of personal car insurance do not provide cover for commercial events or sport related activities. Someone will have to go out of their way to get cover at their expense which of course you may not want to foot the bill..

    Dealers will want to sponsor it but the process of getting that organised and get approval from all parties will take time but they too will want something in return.

    Understood, I wasn't expecting a privately owned vehicle for this job.

    It is a long shot! We have been sponsored equipment including vehicles in the past. Thought I would just flag it up here.

    We may have a lead with volvo, but like you say, there is a few hoops to jump through. We always have rental as a backup option.
