Its now due 4th April as it didn't make the Boat I thought it was on.
I can track the ship/container now so hopefully I can pick it up around the 11th April.....6 months after purchase.
Im not even getting excited until its cleared customs and I have booked my flight to Melbourne.

I have now missed driving the car in Summer (car was due Nov/dec).
I have missed the Shannon's show as well. And I see that a car very similar to mine took out the Fastback section (mine would have one that for sure LOL).

Am still trying to get  compensation from the shipping company so will see how that goes.

monahanajj.... did you find out any information that could help?

Cheers

i to am waiting for my 1967 mustang fastback to be released by transzit express, this company is so full of excuses, car arrived here in jan 08 and i am still waiting for transzit to release it, in the meantime no one can give me an explanation as to why it takes so long to release a car. its sitting in a warehouse clocking up storage fees.

Thanks for the heads up ejmustang on cali image in Brissie.  The more info and feedback we get on shipping companies, importers and the like the better off we all will be and less frustrations will be had.

         Still in saying that....u can have shipping company "X" who has done 20 great jobs and they might have 1 bad one that tarnishes their reputation.

Hi All,
The saga has not quite finished....
So the car is here but with some damage from the shipping.
A few deep scratches here and there and a dent from something obviously being put on the hood.
Has anyone had these sort of problems? and what recourse do you have?
I have the Vehicle inspection report from when the car was picked up from the seller in the US.... he went over the car many times and could find any damage or scratches. This proves that it happened during my shippers care.
This car won a best paint trophy two months before I brought it and I was expecting the car to be undamaged (obviously) when I received it.
Any advise for a frustrated Mustang owner.

Cheers

I am so sorry to hear of your experiences Kerry.  As if the delayed shipping wasn't enough only to inspect your ride, which having seen a pic previously was in pristine condition, to find this damage that u have described.

Totally unacceptable and really someone should be made accountable. :_:[:_

I wish u all the successes and best of luck in the future with your ride.

Hi Kerry,

I feel for you. The only recourse you would have is if you had shipping insurance. I went to the extra expence of having full cover when my car was shipped. Most freight forwarders only cover you for total loss ie if the container falls overboard or if it is stolen. Have a look at your maritime insurance policy to see if you can claim. The other problem is the excess - some can be as high as USD$1,000, so may not be worth all the trouble.

Good luck with it all.
