Default Importing Cars To Australia

G'day, My name is John and i live in Australia. Im a huge camaro fan and am in the process of trying to import a 67/68 camaro from the usa. Would anyone on this forum know of companies that send vehicles to Australia. It can be a little scary in regards to the process of importing a car from the other side of the world. Offcourse i am also talking to local importing companies here in australia.

cheers

G'day John, I am from The Netherlands and also importing a car from the states. I work with an American transportcompany called Rinkens. They are specialised in shipping cars all over the world. They have good service and I think very competitive prices, can really recommend them.
They will also have a cusotms clearence agent in Australia. If you ask them they will give you the name of their agent and you can you can check with them what the importing costs will be. That gives you a good total picture.
www.rinkens.com Hope this helps you. Anton.

Notice both are first time posters?
That's can be a way of backwards advertising.
I could log on as "83olds" and ask where can I buy a good helmet?

Then log on later under "fordracer99" and say "Hey I just bought one from Crossbones Motorsports they have the best prices on awesome helmets!!!!!".

Just a marketing ploy.

Well it is not and I hope I can help that guy with importing a car. You guys should be proud that people so far away take all the hassle to import a car from your country.
Anton.

I understand. Sometimes I get the idea you are more afraid for fraud from overseas then I have to be from your side.
Anyway, this time it's just a honest car enthousiast!!
