The Tarago jeeps that arrived Brisbane on the 10 Feb were apparently part released to Prixcar on 7 March - and ours was in that batch.
My dealer advises he is hoping to be able to advise a delivery date later today, but I'm not holding my breath. (we're another step closer though!!!)

There may have been fewer jeeps into Fremantle so they might be cleared from AQIS a bit sooner than the 3 weeks plus it is taking in Brisbane.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

I was hoping to take delivery of mine today after it was released to Prixcar Minto on 28 February. I spoke to the dealer on Wednesday and the compliance plate still hadn't been affixed at that time. Maybe I 'll get it this time next week.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

This might be a silly question. but where do the cars come in from? (i.e. Melbourne, Brisbane, Fremantle etc).

I'm told my car is due to arrive at the dealers next week.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Than can come from any of those ports.
If your in WA = Fremantle
VIC = Melbourne
NSW = port Kembla
QLD = Brisbane

I think WA gets unloaded at Perth. I know the Tugela stopped there after Port Kembla. I'd guess that Tas would be unloaded at Melbourne. Don't know if the ships stop in SA after Melboune or sails straight through to WA.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

had a phone call this evening - our Jeep is at the dealers - arrived from Brisbane this afternoon - so only 2 days with Prixcar!
We'll have a look at it tomorrow and tick the boxes on the checklist then off to the bank on Monday.
Little steps but getting closer.....

You can sign up as a level 3 supporter and get a tracking sheet from Milous which will tell you exactly when your car landed and if its been released from the docks. Tracking stops at that point.

I'm not sure, if your car was on this ship, but the Tugela moored in Melbourne on 25 February after leaving Port Kembla and arriving at Freemantle. Seeing it was dropping off Jeeps at Port Kembla and Freeo, I'm guessing that it was unloading Jeeps in Melbourne too. If that is the case, it would have been delayed in quarantine so the timeline fits.
