Paris drop off location adds one extra month

Heads up! Not sure if this is true across the board, but just noticed that after dropping my car in Paris on October 12th, it got loaded to the Porgy on November 14th. ETA: November 29th at NY port. Seriously?!

I dropped off in Paris. It was 45 days from drop off to re-delivery in OKC. I don't think a Munich drop off would have been much better in my case. However, I am surprised that it took your car a month and two days to get on a ship. I wouldn't assume that a Paris drop off is slower across the board. There are too many variables in the process that can influence a +/- of 10 days, regardless of drop off city.

You should have been on a boat on nov 1 at the latest. Clearly the hurricane probably screwed up the schedule. I dropped of in Paris on oct 3 and missed the oct 7 boat but got the oct 21 boat to california so it is all luck of the draw.

A couple of us dropped off in Paris earlier in October and it took 2 weeks to get on the boat. Paris tends to be the slowest, but 4 weeks is a bit much.

I think it is just luck of the draw and how you match up with the shipping schedules. I dropped off in Munich on Sept 27th and it took six weeks for the car to US - three weeks in Germany waiting for the boat. Finally got my car on Nov 17th. In general, BMW tells us six to eight weeks and that is generally what it takes......some just get lucky and hit the transport schedules just right. Good luck!

I tracked 47 ED cars which were dropped off in Paris. Some of these cars did take a long while to get on to a ship - one actually took 47 days! But on average the "Paris" cars took just over 17 days. The 400 cars dropped in Munich averaged 12 days and the 9 cars dropped in Bremerhaven took 10 days. So if you enjoyed your stay in Paris an extra week is not a high price to pay.

The cars that I tracked were dropped off a few years ago. So that we can get updated info please add your car's drop-off to re-delivery experience in the "Sticky" called "Online Redelivery Reporting Form Now Online - Enter Results Here" or go straight to:

Paris drop off location adds one extra month

Just to add another data point to show that how much it could vary. We dropped off at CDG in July and it was loaded on the vessel after 3 weeks and it got to Port Hueneme 25 days after. Total time from drop off at CDG to re-delivery for us was 72 days or 10 weeks and 2 days (because of a repair at VPC due to a minor accident we had in Paris)
