That's a tricky one, Pete. Unless you're talking about substantial damage, its pretty hard to tell if there's been scratches or chips caused by the shipping company when you're usually not even going to SEE the car until its been shipped, complied and often shipped AGAIN. So unless you've got very detailed photos of a particular area from before it left Japan that clearly show a discrepancy you're unlikely to even KNOW if they chip or scratch it... And even if you do, was it done on the boat, in the compliance centre, on a truck? Can you prove it?
Quite the can of worms, really. Personally I'm just gonna sit tight and hope like hell I get the car in good condition and go from there.
If something major happens to the car during any of that process, you ARE insured for it, though
Yea host them on Photobucket or a similar image hosting site and link back to them using image tags (you can copy and paste such a line from under the hosted photo once you get it up), don't try to upload them directly to the forum
I'm going through KIPS (Kiwi Car Carrier's insurance) with a claim for damage to one customer's Legnum. Looked like a forklift scrape across the front of the car, front bar, bonnet, guard, headlight damaged. They don't make it easy to claim, but it looks like we will be getting money back for it.
