Delivery times from ship to dealer

My car arrives off the ship in Freo today, does anyone know how long it normally takes to go through customs. My dealer is trying to tell me that it won't be ready to pick up till next month? i am getting a nudge bar and towbar fitted also leather seats. the worst part is they won't give me a definate date of when the car will be ready. any help will be greatly appreciated.

Re: Delivery times from ship to dealer

Current times between ship to dealer range between at best 2-3 weeks.
The car goes to a intermediatory firm which looks after customs clearance as well as adds the compliance plates. That time can vary if there are quarantine issues, such as grass seeds found on tires of a batch which arrived in NSW just before X-Mas. Those cars took upto 6 weeks to get to the dealer.
WA appears to be quicker than Vic and NSW. Good luck with the waiting in this final stage.

Re: Delivery times from ship to dealer

I was quoted 10 days for ours to come from docking in Brisbane to the dealer on the Gold Coast, then 3 days to PD and fit towbar and wiring.
Seems to me plenty of fat in there.....

Re: Delivery times from ship to dealer

Drop a hint that you may be going o'seas on a business trip which could last as long as 6 weeks. That might hurry them up. They wont be happy having to pay for the car, then have to await your paymnt.

Re: Delivery times from ship to dealer

I may try that one actually. Hopefully the car will fly through customs and I won't have a problem. They have been great up until now, just trying to get them to commit to a date. Preferably in February. Lol

Re: Delivery times from ship to dealer

From what happened to me, the dealer wont give a specific date because if the car gets held up at customs for extra time then you will get annoyed that you cant pick up the car when they said.
Thats why my dealer wont give anyone actual pick up dates, tey will simply give an estimate. Just think if they had said to me "Come pick it up before xmas(when it was meant to be there)" and then the i rocked up and couldnt actually get it for another 3 weeks, due to customs and grass seeds.

Problem is, there is nothing you can do to speed up the boat or customs and pre-delivery. Most of the time the dealer only has it for 3 days or so, the rest is out of their hands.
