Old school Mazda's / Shipping mazda capella 70 from Australia
« on: September 08, 2020, 09:57:05 PM »
Hi, I'm hoping I can get some advice from fellow rotor heads who may have experienced shipping cars from outside the UK. I have a 70 Capella coupe (rolling shell) that I've owned since a kid and I'd like to now ship it to the UK so I can restore it here.

I have filled in heaps of forms online and so far I have received quite a few quotes that range from around £2000 port to port. I'd like to know if this is a fair price and whether there are cheaper ways to get a classic into the UK from Oz.

Alternatively I have contacts in Hungary if I can get it there where they would restore the panels/paint so that is option 2. Option 1 being get it here, put an engine in it, get it on the road and drive it to Europe to get it restored.

Added pics of my poor girl. She hasn't run since around 1990 when it was taken off the road for 'breaking traction' in front of the police in a plume of smoke dumped from the engine. It's since been pillaged by family for their cars at the time so I'm left with most parts, excluding anything in the engine bay.

Thanks in advance.
