    International Car Movement - refund?

    International Car Movement - refund? 20th Nov 12 at 3:38 PM
    Hello all,

    I paid to have a vehicle shipped to the US. However between paying for it and the date it was arranged to be shipped the vehicle was involved in an accident and was quite seriously damaged.

    I contacted the shipping company informing of this and that I wished to suspend the shipping until the vehicle was repaired. They were happy with this.

    With the moving around that I was doing at the time the vehicle wasn't repaired and being overseas it slipped my mind with everything else going on.

    This was some time ago... about a year ago and going through my files its come back to me. I have no need to ship the vehicle now and I'm about to see if I can claim the money back.

    Before I contact them, does anybody know where I stand on this issue?

    Many thanks.

    You'll need to refer to the original contract you agreed with the shipping company.

    Perhaps take a copy of that contract along to your local CAB office and they will advise you further on where you stand.
