The transit time may sometimes be less than that estimated. Delivery also depends on when your vehicle was loaded to ship. E.g. if your vehicle was loaded first, then it will be unloaded last and there is a possibility of delay in delivery and vice versa. Take these things into consideration when planning the transport of your vehicle.
After placing the order, your shipping will be scheduled as per the dates advised. Once the truck is assigned, the truck driver will call you to schedule a pick - up/delivery time and day. During the pick - up, a detailed inspection of the vehicle is done where the condition is noted on the shipping note/receipt that you need to sign and acknowledge.
Please note that customer must be at the destination port during importation to go through customs where applicable.
