That's what they told me. BUT in reality it took 2 weeks to get to the port,
Miami, and 4 more weeks to get it to the dealer in Louisiana. I offered to
go pick it up but they claimed it was in route. In my experience of ordering
2 MB's in the past they have taken 4 to 6 weeks after completion date.
Yes. This has little to do with the the car manufacturer. These are
typical transit times for goods. The actual time spent at sea may also only
be a small part of the total time it takes to get from manufacturer to
Makes the waiting time all the more delicious...
NB: To reply directly replace "nospam" with "schmetterling"
I have seen a few month ago in the press, that a ship sunk in the middle of
the Channel. As it created a danger to navigation, it is being cut into
small pieces on the spot.
The load was said to be "German luxury cars"
They have used a cable to cut the whole ship in three parts, and these
three parts are to be hauled to Holland. So that now the load is composed of
brand new cars which have been lying at the bottom for a few months, plus
some which have been cut in two.
hope yours is not there!!!
(I should have my first Mercedes beginning of next month!)
