Exclamation Best importers?

Hey guys, I'm currently looking for my car and it's more than likely I'll pick one up on the east coast (Florida area) and I'll be shipping it to Sydney. Just wondering from personal experiences what the best importers that you guys have used or heard stories about. This whole process is daunting and I don't really know how to get the ball rolling. Thanks in advance!

I used Matt and Sheri (Shermatt) because of the their feedback, but also because they're located in Florida and my Vette was in Florida also.
No complaints, they did a great job.

I have been talking to Luke from classic usa imports. He seems to be a lot cheaper than the others but I'm wondering why? Thanks for your help thus far.

You have John Cain who ships straight into Newcastle i think. At least he is based up there.
I've used Luke. Once you sign on communication is poor, but you will get your car in good shape, eventually....

Poor to no communication seems to be the trend with the ones I've used over the last 20+ years.

Thread title should read "Importers, best of a bad bunch"

Another thumbs up for CCI from me.

The guys are tops, they imported a car for me, and it couldn't have been easier, and even inspected a couple of cars for me in the US.

Basically I gave Adrian a link to the car I wanted, and apart from a couple of emails, next thing I know he is dropping it off at my door.

I wont hesitate to use them again, and I recommend them to everyone.

Hey mate,
I'm literally using Luke at classic USA imports,
Let's just say my car arrives tomorrow from Mississippi

So I'm jumping out of my skin at the moment
I'm advised that I should see it within a week after quarantine
Look me up in a week or so after I get my car and I'll give you all the info about Luke at classic USA imports
