That's a massive wait. Actually, both the local handling and overall.

You guys placing special orders have way more acceptance of delayed gratification than I do! I could hardly wait the 3 weeks for the dealer ordered Grand we purchased.

Cheers,
Steve

It has nothing to do with Jeep Aus, it is Prix Cars hands until it goes to the dealer.

Hi Snuke,
Living in Alice Springs I would tend to agree with you on that. But in this circumstance I will blame Jeep as this vehicle was suppose to dock in Darwin on February 18th then trained to dealer, but was loaded and scheduled to dock in Melbourne instead which constantly keeps adding more and more time to the delivery to get it transported around the country to the dealer, what I cant understand which you may know is why does the vehicle have to go from Melbourne to Adelaide then past Alice Springs (1500km) to Darwin to get vin plate installed then back to Alice Springs. Cant this been done in Melbourne where the vehicle was delivered, then shipped directly here?

Cheers
Brenden

Is that only cars going through Melbourne?
My understanding from my dealer in Brisbane the Jeep will be landed here and there will be a 2-3 week delay while it clears customs etc.

Cheers

Re: Delivery time

All cars, I think for all brands, they also deal with individuals importing their own cars.
The route my ship took was dock in Brisbane first (after Auckland) then Sydney, then Melbourne. Oddly some cars for Melbourne were taken off at Sydney and trucked down.
There is a note about tracking your ship in the top section of the tracking thread.

Re: Delivery time

Mine docked in Melbourne on the 23rd February, and still to this date, still waiting, supposably it should get to Alice Springs today. Then hopefully the dealer can get it checked, registered for today or tomorrow pick up. but that takes 22 days to freight Melbourne to Alice for some reason??

Sounds like a plan Bob, I will be taking photos etc and posting them of my new car.
I will be in town begging May, other wise up in Darwin from the 22nd :-)
Keep in touch for sure. Was only talking with a few jeep owners that we try the Cape next year :-) Jeep takes on the CAPE

Regards
Brenden

Nope It is still not ready, it was at the tinters getting window tint done, then has to go back to dealer today to finish getting towbar installed and roof bars. I am hoping today they have it ready

But I made them take me to tinters to see if this car actually exists. lol had a look over it and checked all the extras and colours, all good this time :-) looks awesome I just wanted to drive it out :-(
