  1. Have just collected my car from the docks and though I'd post a couple of things of interest. In general the process has been pretty straight forward, however, I have just encountered my first bit of frustrating red tape! I have booked the car in with an engineer to have it checked for compliance and just before saying goodbye having made the booking the lady checked to make sure the import permits I had in my hand were blue...? No they were white! Apparently they will not send the blue originals to a non Australian address and in order to have the compliance an registration sorted you need the blue originals. Am sure it must have been written somewhere (probably nice and small) but I missed it so am now having to wait 5-7 working days for the blue docs to arrive from Canberra before anything can move forward!!!!! Another thing to watch out for is the 'steam cleaning' at the docks. I had heard so many people getting charged for this despite them having already done it in the UK I simply had a friend take it through a normal car wash in the UK and budget for the cleaning at this end. I paid the $360 for a full steam clean but the problem is......it bloody filthy and I can see no sign of any cleaning other than a quick hose under the arches. I have contacted the shipper to complain! I sent the car RORO and except for a couple of scuffs on the front bumper, all seems to have gone well. One car down and one to go!! Cheers S

    Shipping collected

    Well we had the shippers in yesterday to pack our stuff up and send to Canberra, they turned up at 8.50am and where packed and loaded by 3.30pm. We are using Crown and the 3 guys that turned up where great(just make sure you keep them supplied with tea & biscuits!!), so we will see what happens at the other end and will let you know if we are still singing the praises of Crown.
