Re: Track your Newly ordered Jeep or Chrysler vehicle here at JeepGarage!

Hurricane Sandy's current forecast track is directly over Curtis Bay. Anyone with a Jeep on the docks?

Hi Guys typically how long does it take for vehicles to arrive at the dealers once the ship has docked?

Also the sales manager told me all vehicles go to macarthur where pre inspection takes place. What would they typically do here out of curiosity. Why not send it straight to the dealer from the ship.

From ship docking thru PrixCars/quarrentine/compliance etc to delivery to you averages two weeks.

Mine took a month to get from Port Kembla to the dealer in Mosman. It spent most of that time at PrixCar in Minto. All the customs checks are done there. If they find grass seeds on any vehicle in your shipment, all the vehicles are delayed. PrixCar take off the protective coatings and add all the non-factory accessories. You would be surprised how many items that you thought were standard, are not factory fitted as is evidenced by sloppy installation. PrixCar also do all the registration paperwork. It is only about a weeks work but they have literally thousands of vehicles to do. If you don't believe me, check out their yard on Google Earth at 34° 2'29.77"S 150°50'2.81"E . The dark patches are shade cloth covered areas.

Angela month to wait would be very painful knowing that vehicle is on the same land that you stand on.

My dealer has promised me that I will have the car by 1st Nov. I know that this isn't going to be possible as the boat itself is landing on the 1st. Could I use this opportunity to negotiate some discount or extra accessories or will I be pushing it.

Has anyone else been in a position where the dealer has promised a date and it hasn't arrived. If so what has the dealer done for you to keep you happy?

You can then follow it through production, follow other links to see it at sea, watch your ship through the Panama real time, watch the ship for nine to ten hours at each of the ports, and finally see it arrive, through Prixcars to delivery. Really helps kill the time!!! Good luck.
Thank you very much for the quick response GlennR. I will upgrade my membership right then.

Boat landed. Waited a day... Rang the salesperson who informs me the boat hasn't landed.... I said according to you when am I getting it..... He kindly says another 7 to 10 days. What BS..... I didn't tell him that I have been tracking the boat ever since it left the US....

Sounds like a Brisbane salesman. I had the same salespeak. Quote him your VIN and watch him blush out of embarrassment. What can't speak can't lie. If the tracking shows the boat in port, the boat's in port.

Confronted the sales rep on Saturday. Threatened to withdraw from the contract. He calmly took me to the storage area and said she arrived on Friday. Told him I was disappointed with the customer service I a have. Received to date. No call backs no nothing. Looks amazing though . He said they will be doing some pre delivery stuff like including updating the software etc.

Just a question how diligent do I have to be to accept delivery. Should I be going through the entire jeep with a fine tooth comb? Do I need to take photos of the outside etc.

A overland was also standing out the back not exactly close to my car but I couldn't help but think that the other one had a lower profile tyres compared to mine for some reason. By default both are supposed to have the same size wheels. Maybe just my imagination.

Pick up is this Wednesday?
