Hi, just got my new skyline just after santa pod on the 10/10/04.

my guy in japan used a company called ya logistics and had a few problems.

1- When the car came over the front splitter was broken and needs to be fixed, and they said that it a grade 1. When putting or taking of the ship some one has broken the splitter and they said that it is not their fult.

2- Another thing is that a rev gauge which is said to be a nismo with light was stolen from my car at some point either from japan or when it got to southampton, and from doing this the broke my centre dash and now done some thing to the cars performance as well. I spoke to ya logistics and they told me that it must have been done in japan, but when speaking to my guy in japan he said he gave the car to ya logistics to put on the ship with all parts on the car and he said it must of been done in the uk. At the moment i am at a stale mate and need some information on this matter so that i know what i can do about this. Has this happened to any body else if so what did you do. can any body help me please.

From what i know it happens all the time. Cars get banged about being put on the boats. Front splitters are a vulnerable area. Auction grade 1 simply means the car has been modified.

It is also very common for parts to be stolen. Southampton docks are notorious for this.

I know it is annoying but to be honest if i were in your shoes i would get over it and sort the car out. :)

Unfortunatly you will Find that if your car is lowerd the shipping companies do not accept any liabilty for damage.As for the parts being stolen did you have any extra insurance? if so you will be able to claim,but this is a long process so somtimes you just have to bite the bullet.This is why we ship all our cars in containers at least we recive the cars in the same condition as they left Japan

As said, front splitters a vulnerable area and they're often too low to get on and off the ramps. That's just life and I fully understand why the shipping lines won't take responsibility. Cars can be containered at a cost of about an extra £250 per vehicle in a 3 car container so not too bad.
As for bits going missing...this generally happens it seems after the auctions down the Docks (Tuesday) when people have had the chance for a good snoop around. There's been a suggestion that cars get primed as they come off the boats but ones that ship with Yuwa Logisitics come straight off the boat into a secure compound. It's not very likely that stuff would go from this compound in my opinion.

Sorry to hear your misfortune, but unless you agreed insurance terms whilst being shipped I think there is very little you can do about it.
At least you got the car, the first one I shipped over is at the bottom of the ocean when the boat sunk - luckily I got fully refunded!

even with the standard shipping insurance you must have with YA to get the car shipped there is a £250 excess you will need photos to proove the damage was not there or parts were there before being shipped
