Caravan or Motorhome Shipping Key Tips
- Ensure your Motorhome has less than a quarter of fuel in tank (it won’t be shipped with more)
- Ensure that you disconnect the battery.
- Ensure that you’ve removed all
a. fire extinguishers
b. gas bottles
- Ensure that you thoroughly clean inside and out, paying particular attention to wheel arches and awnings of your caravan or motor home.
a. MAF will be looking for dirt, leaves and plant material.
- Advise if there is inner cargo (e.g. golf clubs, suitcase of clothes, bottles of alcohol)
a. Where possible – try to avoid inner cargo as it increases cost and clearance time.
- For security reasons, remove and package up all electronics
a. Either lock them inside or courier them to your delivery point.
- We recommend you take up Marine Insurance (we offer comprehensive insurance packages that cover origin pickup to destination drop off).
a. remember to take close up photos of every side of your caravan or motorhome – internal and external
We now have a fully complied Swift Motorhome parked at home – and my wife is thrilled!
First off a big thanks to you guys at McCullough for all your help and support. The shipping was the easiest part and it was only because you had the experience and came across so approachable and confident that I gave importing a go. And as a measure of success – your estimation of landed cost (including GST, duty, freight etc – but not including compliance or registration) was $117,840 and it actually cost me $117,761. It doesn’t get any closer than that given we are also dealing with the vagaries of exchange rates in the mix. You guys are good!
Then of course there was my compliance gaff – particularly the lack of ESC. All I can say is the guys at VINZ were brilliant.
But all’s well that ends well. And I am so appreciative of the extra support you gave me through the compliance process – even though you really had no obligation to do that. Above and beyond the call of duty.
Thanks again from a very satisfied customer.
