Afternoon All

I was told on 17 Dec 21, by the sales manager at my OPC, that my Macan S was in the compound at Emden. I didn’t ask when it arrived there, though.

Having spoken to the OPC yesterday, they still don’t have notification of which vehicle carrier it will be on (apparently they are informed on the ‘system’). They will let me know when they find out.

Does anyone know what I could expect to be the typical wait for a vessel in Emden? It will have been there at least 3 weeks on 7 Jan 22. My OPC is Wolves and they tell me they get their Macans through Grimsby. They are not aware it has been withheld for any reason.

Thanks.
Looks like City of St Petersburg could be the vessel to look out for. She's due to berth in Grimsby this evening (https://www.vesselfinder.com/vessels/CI ... -353083000) but berthing could be delayed until Saturday (https://www.portoftyne.co.uk/marine-inf ... -movements. The port movements then suggest she's going straight back to Emden and then returning to Grimsby next Wednesday morning.
Thanks resjud

Lots of good info. I’ve used vesselfinder recently and was tracking ships to Sheerness until I found out it should probably have been Grimsby, but I’ve not been able to see the future schedules. So had to use a little guesswork. Do you have an account with one of the sites?

No problem. I do have an account but it's been of limited help I'm afraid, as future movements are rarely indicated and the vessel's operators don't seem to publish her schedule so you're reliant on a port publishing expected arrivals. There's another candidate in the Schelde Highway, and the operator (KESS) does publish schedules, but seemingly only on the Emden/Sheerness route.

I promised myself I wouldn’t stalk my vehicle’s whereabouts, yet, here I am!! It’s quite addictive.

Perhaps I should make a resolution to just have more patience. 😮😊

Had an email this morning to let me know that my car is at the "preparation centre" in Sheerness!
Should be at my dealer in 7-10 days :-). It was "on the boat on the 23rd - so maybe they've had it a couple of days already?

- but what happens at the "preparation centre" ????
Repairing all the dings and scratches it’s picked up during transport! :lol:
You shouldn't joke about it, the BMWs prep centre was more than capable of reshelling a car if it'd sustained enough damage in transit; the buyer being none the wiser
Precisely my point.

I probably won’t be the first in 2022 but I am now very happy after I received a call from my Porsche centre saying my car will arrive tomorrow Friday and I have arranged to pick her up next Friday 14th.
