Re: Let's talk about cars

You'd be surprised. The car actually cost me very little. I dad paid 1200 GBP for it in 2014 as a barn find. He gifted it to me and therefore it only probably cost me $1000 in parts and shipping RORO...

Re: Anyone collected a car from Baltimore port?

Good to know, thanks Otto. All I know so far is it is coming in on the MV Donnington. I couldn't find which line that was, except that it is owned by Fair Wind Navigation SA.

Re: Anyone collected a car from Baltimore port?

RORO is what I'm doing too. I'm traveling from Indiana with a trailer so I'm guessing I have to leave that outside the port from what you say? No doubt ill find out soon enough.

Re: Question on titling an imported car

Yup the shipper is sending it to Baltimore. I have used them before (not for cars) so I have no concerns in that aspect.
