have just been contacted by the agent and the car is still sitting in the holding car park in the port of LA. The story goes: The loaders tried to put it in the container but it wouldn't fit so left it in the car park,

Hmm either a small container or a big Z or sent with some other stuff

That's great news! You will get there in the end!

Hopefully you can sort it without any cost!

Terry - They fit either 4 small cars or 3 bigger one in the container. You all share the cost of the container irrespective of the size of your car. I'm guessing they were trying to fit 4 in and mine didn't quite fit.

Dan - I'm hoping to not be charged for the second container.

Sticking with auto but it may go in the 280z for a while. I'm planning on doing a self contained install that can be easy put back to l-series in the future.

Hopefully the car will show up, with any luck it'll be some typo with the paperwork.
Twenty years ago I exported a Range Rover and a 530 to Borneo. I had an umcomfortable wait when the cars were "lost" enroute. They were found in Singapore 3 weeks after being misplaced. The import process into Brunei was a much more complicated affair. My head hurts thinking about it now!
Good luck

Sorry to hear of your woes John, as selfish as it sounds it makes me feel as though I got away with my issues lightly by comparison.

Really relieved to hear they found the car! hopefully saves a lot of heart ache. Lets hope CFR move quickly to resolve the mistake at their own cost and actually get your car back to Blighty without any further delays... Keep us posted, I'll be interested to hear how CFR handle this in light of my recent dealings with them.

I still haven't been able to talk to CFR. My contact is either engaged of doesn't answer. I've left a voicemail but no reply. It's Kingston Shipping that tell me the car is still at LA. I sent an email last night and will try and contact them again tonight.

I'm interested to know how your dealings went.

That's really disappointing to hear, who's the contact? I dealt with Steve Feeney who was really helpful through out. Really one for them to setup and resolve...

I won't go into exact details here, however I will put it all up on my project thread once I've resolved it all. What I will say for now though is having initially been very helpful with my claim things have taken a turn, and I'm being met with severe resistance and un-explainable delays. Unfortunately they are managing to undo all of their good work early on...

Keep us posted.

Tried contacting again last night through email and phone but no luck. Just to clarify, I have had zero contact from CFR regarding my car not being shipped. The only contact is with the UK agent who tell me the car wasn't in the container and from what they understand, it got left out because it didn't fit.

I will try to make contact again tonight.

2 pages and no car!

Finally talked to Gino's assistance Jonathan and he couldn't be more apologetic. Seams like nice bloke. They are waiting for the title document to be sent back from the UK then they will hopefully ship it next week. I guess all being well I will get it end of November, beginning of December.
