It was at the port sometime yesterday and as of this morning and said loaded onto a carrier -- again based on me calling the 800 number so I dont know if it got loaded several days ago but took time to update. The 800 number didnt have the exact name of the carrier.

so i just accessed this site, and it revealed different info that what my CA gave me.

what she did get correct was the name of the ship and the ETA of the cargo. but my car was actually booked on the 26th and loaded on to the vessel yesterday...7-1-13.

if any of you are listed at the port and have a VIN#, i recommend going to that site.

i'm almost positive we're on the same ship.

get to that link in the post above, go to "track & trace" on the lower right hand side of the screen. use the "all users" link and enter your VIN# where it says cargo ID.

okay...so here's an update on what i forund at that site.

once you've entered your VIN#, you should see something like this...



hit the red text under "voyage number" and it's lead you to details like this...



as you can see, it's listed the ship already in the UK as of yesterday. so it's a more accurate log of where your car is than 800#, your CA and the initial info on that site.

Pertplus, at this point i'm sure your car is with mine , somewhere in the UK.

Yeah it's weird. 800 number confirmed it and I have the VIN correct when I type it in. I can shoot you my VIN via PM and you can try it and maybe for some reason something's not working on my end.

For further information, if you guys weren't aware, there is MarineTraffic.com -- Here's the quick link for the Aniara's location, may not work if it moves much from now, but you can always search for the name:

There is an outside chance that W&W isn't the carrier for your car -- in that case you'll want to get the name of the ship from your CA (I know, easier said than done... same at my dealership), and track using other methods such as MarineTraffic or Sailwx until it hits your port.

Well everything else has been moving so fast I am sure it is where they say it is...I mean, actually on some sort of boat or maybe a Zeppelin.

Just spoke to the 800 number and they said it has been "dispatched from Germany" and is with the carrier, apparently on the way to the port. I was told this from a live representative. So I guess I assumed that when I was told it was dispatched from Germany and given to the carrier, that meant it was on a boat and had left Germany. Apparently not.

that's clears things up...yeah, that just means it's on it's way to the port for processing.

it'll probably get on a boat sooner than you think because even the 800#'s info is dated.

on the 28th they told me my car was at the port while it was actually on a ship cruising on it's way here.

Yeah the terminology messed me up: "Dispatched from Germany" and given to the "Carrier" made me think it left Germany on a ship. But knowing my car, it has some sight seeing to do, some seedy strip clubs to visit and some schnitzel to down before leaving good ole Deutschland!
