Inspection Time at port

Hello all,

My '88 90 hit Baltimore port on Friday. Just wondering what the over/under is on how long the inspection hold generally runs when all is clear and uncomplicated.

(I didn't use Doug or Will as I had already gotten the process going before I learned of their services. I did speak to Doug and will certainly use him next time so I don't have to ask these types of questions.)

Thanks,
Brice

I called the shipping company every day asking when customs was going to inspect it and if we could get the process moving, 5 business days later and it was inspected. This was at newark, but remember there isnt just 1 big parking lot at port, there are 50+ (probably more) area's where cargo/truck/containers come into, So I have to imagine CBP is stretched pretty thin.

depends if it needs an AG wash down but 5 days sounds about right.

Great thread. Theoretically my truck is getting put on the ship this week heading to Newark. Praying I see it ASAP as I am going crazy with all this waiting!!!

Good luck to OP!

I am sure every port is different, but mine arrived on May 23rd and I got word on May 24th that it was going to be inspected. Just talked to my broker and she said she is calling daily, but they aren't sharing much and told her to keep checking...

Wow Mitch, that is a long wait. What port is it sitting in?
If I recall correctly Doug indicated somewhere that Baltimore is a bit faster and that is why I chose to have it delivered there. I'm hoping it does not take that long. Good luck with yours.

I wonder if going through Doug or Will saves you much of this time as they are known importers. Their service already seems worthwhile, but even more if the alternative is waiting for an exceptionally long time.

No, just call the shipping company every day yourself. Mine got off the ship Dec 5, I called every day of the next week, I found out Dec 11 afternoon on a friday it was cleared, and showed up first thing monday morning to pick up.

Thanks John.
So did you call the shipping company, your broker or the cbp at the port itself? I kind of had the impression the shipping company washed their hands of the vehicle once it rolls off their ship.

It depends what kind of shipping company you used. Mine is filing all my import paperwork for me, "supposedly" just show up with a license plate and drive away.

I called them all, but CBP doesnt answer the phone, and the broker said the shipping company was who has more "control" over the situation.

My 130 went through Baltimore. It arrived in port on 28 March, and was finally released on 28 April.

I was told that it was one of two there at the same time, and was led to believe by the person handling customs for me that some questions about the other one also held up mine. Don't know why it took so long for sure.

A month or so in Brunswick, Ga. But that was at the height of the seizure games. But at the end of the day you are dealing with the Federal Government and it will clear when it clears and no sooner.

Using Uncle Douglas is the only way to go IMHO as all my paper work was squared away and locked on.

Mine took two months from November to January at Newark, and I used Doug. No problems, it was just slow. I did not (and evidently should have!) done what JohnsD90 did and call every day. Another shout out to John who actually collected my 110 at Newark.

My last one took 16 hours. I had made no arrangements to pick it up as I expected a week+ minimum.
I had to scramble around to get to the port before they started charging me storage.

This was in Tacoma.

There was an Ex- MOD 90 there also. Anyone here get that one? I didn't get a very good look at it, it was at the back fence.
