Apparently you can track the car on the ship using the VIN, when it's actually been loaded onto the ship. This works for the guys in the US so I see why this wouldn't work for us, given it's a European shipping company?
Cars that land in Southampton do NOT go to Thorne, they go straight to the dealership, have done since January.
Live for now, life is too short.
