That Galaxie was a sweet ride. My 18 year old fell seriously in lust with it until I reminded him that he can't drive a V8 yet. He misses the USA sometimes!

At least he has good aspirations.

Been a bit busy to be adding more pictures of late. We launched a revised website last week featuring all vehicles we have imported and adding a new Freight application and back end database to make tracking of freight easier. Added to that another 2 containers landed this week (BRI and MEL) and packed another 2 in the USA. Also packing one in BRI heading to the USA. Pretty busy right now leading up to Christmas.


Here are some more pics.

I thought I had posted this one already? Regardless it is a beautiful car that you can't look at enough. Another WA Camaro!


Not everything we ship are finished cars, we ship a lot of cars with potential as well. This one was also into Western Australia.


A nice Harley Davidson


A brand new SeaDoo into Brisbane

That is a nice looking car, I love that colour. I am not sure what the go is with it, you would be best served clicking the "More Info" button and asking specific questions that you want answers to.

One for the Mustang people, this one came into Melbourne
OK, can someone help here please. I'm confused after looking at some of these recently imported vehicles.
1. If I locate a vehicle (65 Impala) and it has the stock engine/drivetrain but has aftermarket 17" wheels, when it comes standard with 14", would it get IA if the only thing different are the later wheels?
2. I locate the same model with a 350 crate motor and T350. They came ex factory with 283, 327 small blocks and 396 big blocks, with P/glides and 4 speeds.
Any advice from those who have recent import experience (USAtoAUS) ;-) appreciated. It looks like the ones above get through ok with the aftermarket wheels.
By the way, some sweet looking cars there.

Matt

Matt, the bast advise I can offer is; Do not believe everything you hear or read as a lot of it is not true.

We suggest to our potential clients that they contact us via phone and we will discuss each car that they are interested in and advise on them based on a vehicle by vehicle case.

For the most part all vehicles on our website should be granted an Import Approval. If it is a vehicle on another website you can email the link and we will give you an honest opinion.

Merry Christmas!

Malibu Wakesetter Shipping

What's the going rate for shipping something like that into Melbourne?

You can containerise Malibu Wakesetters.
You use a 9 foot 6 inch ( high cube ) container.
You leave the boat on the trailer and invert the boat and trailer inside the container.
I have done many this way.
Much cheaper than RoRo option.

Importing Into Australia

Picture of boat and Inversion

I have loaded and shipped Tige, Malibu and Supra style boats this way.

Sometimes the big picture paints a different story about saving money when you factor into the picture location of goods, location of equipment, location of other assets to ship with the goods.

Sometimes it is also not about saving money but having a customer feel secure about the way their boat is transported and they would rather pay a few more dollars knowing that their very expensive boat is sitting horizontally not vertically.

We offer the customer all the available options and let them decide.

I agree ....the customer has the choice....but there is limited opportunities for RoRo into Adelaide hence containerised shipments.

Our experienced loading method is proven with the loading of inverted boats into the container.

All fluids require to be drained and battery removed to do this but sometimes AQIS require this and most boats if looked after are winterised by the USA seller anyway.

Not sure what your experience is but I have been shipping out of the USA since 1989.

I only do two car containers or one car and one boat.

When importers load more than two cars in a container and still charge $ 3500 AUD per car for the additional cars then their risk management for the consigned freight is non existent.
