Default Anyone Imported a Caravan

Hi,
Wondered if anyone had imported a caravan either when moving here or when already here.
If so, who did you use, how much did it cost, what charges did MAF sting you with at this end.
Cannot believe the prices of them out here. $8500 for something i wouldnt put a dog in and would have to think twice about putting the teenagers into.

Many thanks in advance

I think most shippers will charge the same as it goes into a container on its own,
try emailing some of the larger used van sellers in blighty, they will also be able to offer advice.

I dont see him much but will try and get a hold of him

With the cost of vans out here its a no brainer bringing one from uk. As long as you do your research and can find a decent shipping company at the ukend. Trying to find one is proving the tricky part
