Re: WK2 DownUnder

Hi,

Bought from Osborne Park. I do highly recommended the Sales Manager there, he hasn't led me astray thus far and been generally true to his word. I understand some things are out of his control, the waiting game is just very tedious.

Regards,

Jason

My question is, how long does it take from arrival into city port to dealership and into my garage? My wait has been so long now I'm pretty much over it. The dealership sales manager keeps telling me they're waiting on Prix Car to deliver the vehicle to their dealership and they can't tell him what day/time other than they're trying for "this week".

The thought of having to wait another week irks me immensely, since I've waited this long and originally thought I'd get my vehicle before Christmas.

Your thoughts guys?
Problem is you are pretty much stuffed once you sign the contract of sale unless you put special terms into it specifying a certain time frame.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

And if you do, they'll just accept the contract forfeit and sell your car to some bunny who is hanging out for it.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I did:

"Vehicle must be delivered before EOM January 2015, otherwise client reserves the right to refuse delivery. If activated, deposit must be refunded in full"

They told me should be before Christmas, I had a feeling there would be a delay so close to holidays so I said end of Jan.

Barboots - From what I can gather, they would have no hesitation to refund me and sell it at a higher price for the next buyer. So you're right.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I did something similar with mine but also put in a bit about a loan car should it not arrive by a certain time

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Delivery time from ship to dealer is generally 2-3 weeks. Being Holiday period, you will probably find that Prix Cars closed down over X-Mas, so you may have a week or 2 to wait. There can be holdups if there are quarantine issues with the shipment batch. There used to be problems with grass seed in the tyres, but I think they were sorted out over a year ago. Cars can also be held back if there is shipping damage.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

You can call Prix Cars yourself and ask for the timeline. They will just want the E number that you have. I called and they let me know they were waiting on the dealer to file certain paperwork but that it wasn't at the stage if that issue holding it up. They told me when it should be delivered to dealer.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

mine was 3 days back in 2011.
It came to the dealer on a small car trailer. I was there to watch the unloading.
No markings on the trailer to say who it was.

They probably already have sold it to the guy who offered them extra $$ if they can do the deal this week...

You are not wrong! Mine was in Pix Car for a while so I thought I'd go down there and take a look. There was no chance of getting in to seeing it. High security fencing all around. Through the fence I saw one that looked like it so I took a pic. We were in my wife's car. That night she got a call from the cops wanting know what we were doing there.
