Asian King

Hey Yankfan,

my car is also on Asian King, I have been tracking it since monday. I hope our cars dont get damaged in shipping and/or get stuck in customs. Did your dealer give you a delivery date?

I'm on Asian King as well, but I have an ordered car on board. For the most part, I've heard only the ED cars are held a bit longer at customs. That is because they were driven around all over Europe so they want to make sure nobody smuggled in a hot Dutch girl.

Just left Southampton, UK today. Its on its way to its long voyage across the Atlantic Ocean. Hopefully she doesn't run into any of those tropical depressions forming.

Anyone picking their car at the PCD? Has your CA given you a pick up date yet for PCD or Dealer delivery?

I spoke to a lady at Harms here in NJ on Friday morning. She said that if my car was discharged from the vessel on Thursday (which is what the Wallenius Wilhemson site shows) then the paperwork goes to customs Friday and then takes 24 - 48 hours to clear. At that point they contact the dealer. I asked if it made any difference that my car was an ED car and she said no. I relayed this info to my dealer and she promised to follow up next week, so hopefully I'll have more info then.

Good luck, and pray that your car isn't one of the "lucky" ones chosen at random by Customs for special examination. Mine was discharged from vessel on July 30th, and has been sitting at Customs ever since. :(
