FRAUD WARNING POINT TWO:
We would like to continue offering you advise on how to stay clear of the online fraudsters and sharks with a few more tips. View PART ONE here.

We are ONE of the good exporters you can trust but there are many out there wanting to take advantage of you.
POINT TWO: - CIF (Cost, Insurance, Freight) Price
The question on everyone’s lips is how cheap can I get it? Well, you get what you pay for. Reputable export companies ONLY export great units and if there is an issue they will sort it out.
1. Overall vehicle, shipping PRICE including clearing
Remember it’s the total price that you will pay that effects what a unit will cost you. Always ensure you are dealing with an export company who will allow you to choose your OWN agent. If you are forced to use the agent recommended the CHEAP price you will pay for the car and shipping could become a lot more expensive if the agent you are told you must use charges you crazy money to release the unit. This is a real issue! A reputable vehicle exporter will advise you a recommended agent or two but also allow you to use whoever you like. If this is not the case beware.
2. Agent PRICE
The same thing above applies here. If its too good to be true it is. The agents at the port clearing and forwarding generally all have the same expenses. You must have a quality agent do this final stage for you. If you cut costs here you could be in for a broken heart. Top notch agents maybe slightly more expensive but they will ensure good quality service and security. This final stage can mean the difference between receiving your unit in great order or not at all. It happens!
