Pre-purcahse inspection in South West?

Hi,
 
I have recently joined PCGB as I am in the hunt for a 928.  I have found a good looking car that ticks the right boxes in Devon.  However, I am finding it difficult to find a company "reasonably" close to the car to provide a PPI.  Most companies that I have found are midlands/north or in the south east.  I have searched the forums here but have not come up with any useful suggestions.
 
If I have to pay a premium I will but I wonder whether anyone could suggest a PPI provider in (or closer to) the south west corner of the UK. 
 
Thanks.
 
Mark

    I don't know about a PPI but SCS Porsche in Honiton will give you a very honest and thorough appraisal.  Give them a call and speak to Andy.

    You will possible learn more by having a 928 owner inspect it than a "porsche specialist" with little experience of 928s. Agreed, Paul Anderson would probably be your best bet, but I don't know how willing he would be to travel. He might know the car though.
    I would recommend that you join the 928uk list, and ask on there.

    As you're in Plymouth then Andy Moss at SCS is definitely your man.  He is very knowledgeable about the older cars - I know as he did plenty of work on my (now sold) 928 S4.  Worth a call at least.....

    An update as a courtesy.  I have contacted Williams Crawford for the inspection which they are very happy to do.  They are already known to the current owner so a result all round.  Thanks again for all the suggestions.
