Vancouver brokerage for importing my Delica

Hi all,

New member, first time poster. I'm a Canadian who has owned a 1995 Delica Spacegear for a year and a half in NZ, coming home to Vancouver. I have a great shipping/freight quote out of Wellington to Vancouver, but was disappointed by the quote from the local broker they referred me to ($2000!!).

I think you can actually clear a vehicle at the port yourself (mine is coming in a 20' container), but I'm a little concerned about the paperwork and would be willing to pay someone to help me through it.

Any referrals?

Thanks,
Chris

I have used Thompson Logistics for all my imports, Al is a great guy and takes care of his clients. I usually buy JDM vehicles through Braveauto and they work with Al so the fee is rolled into the brokerage cost. I get an itemized bill from Thompson for the import costs at the port which is between $5-900.

Use the Google and give Al a call.

Thanks Ralph! Al was recommended to me by a few sources, and I'm now working with him.
