Hi Richard,

I'm no shipping expert but an engine has all sorts of duty and GST and taxes associated with it as well as the easy bit of putting it on a boat and truck.

I'd suggest your customer at this end get in contact with a customs agent to sort it out.

Here are a couple of local links to help out:

Online Quotations - Freight Forwarding Air or Sea - Customs Clearance - Warehousing & Distribution - World Wide Customs & Forwarding Agents
includes an on-line quotation.

Cargo Online - Home
Say they specialise in cars.

It can be a real pain and getting paperwork wrong can hold things up for months so I'd suggest to let the experts handle all the paperwork. I've also heard that customs are more lenient on the professional mobs since they have a reputation to keep, where a person bringing in one part can put all sorts of stuff in the pistons so they look more closely.

Can't help more than that but maybe someone else here has more experience with actually doing it.

Andrew

I have a V6 engine I am going to be sending from Florida, USA to Perth. Any suggestions from your end.??:confused:
Thanks
I run a Perth based International freight company so can assist here.
first thing i need to know is on what terms the engine is being sold - i.e. door to door or door to port and who is paying for the freight charges and destination charges?

The engine will go thru both Customs and Quarantine inspection before the end user can get their hands on it. This is all very time consuming and red tap heavy for a private citizen, hence where companies like mine come i.

Email me @ [email protected] if you would like to discuss further and for me to prepare a quote and provide shipping advice.
