It may come as news to some of our newest members or guests who are waiting to take delivery of their Antara but there is a way where you can follow the progress of your car from it being initially allocated a build slot on the production line through to its arrival at your dealers.

The Vauxhall dealerships tend not to mention its existence but it is there and has been widely used by members on our forum.


In order to use the website, you need to obtain a unique eight digit (alpha-numeric) "tracking" number from your dealer. Please note that this tracking number will not appear on any of the paperwork provided by your dealer at the time of order.


The example below provides an idea of what information will be available to you.

Given the dates that you have provided we might be able to identify the ship that your car is on.


Bear with me and I'll have a look.

Hi Chris


Can I point out at the outset that there is no way of knowing for sure which ship your car will be on but given the dates that you have, I have narrowed it down to one of two ships.


The vessel carrier "Titania" is due to dock at Bristol on 02/07/13 and the vessel carrier "Torino" is due on 06/07/13, both of which fit in to your delivery date of 12/07/13.


As I type, the Titania is docked at Incheon which is the only port that Antara are loaded from, meanwhile the Torino is presently in the Japan Sea heading for Kunsan which is where the Chevrolet Aveo is manufactured.


It is still possible that the Torino could still head to Incheon to take on a cargo of Antara but I would doubt that your car would be one of them. Sinceyour car went through quality control on 12/05/13 it should be one of the first to be loaded and since the Titania is currently there, that is the ship that I would follow all the way to the UK.














You can follow the ship by going to the following website but beware, it is addictive and you will be checking it several times a day.

If you require any help tracking the ship, just post a message and I'll help you out.


Regards


John

Chris - I've just had a quick look at the Titania is due to arrive in Portbury from Incheon on 2nd July which would fit in nicely with a delivery of 12th July.


There are two other ships due into Portbury around that time - Torino on 6th July but I don't believe that it out of Incheon and the Morning Claire on the 13th July again, I don't think that is out of Incheon (and may be a little too late for your delivery date).


So, as always - it's a lot of guesswork and inference but If I were you I'd start tracking the Titania!


Good luck.

Hi Joe, I have been "gazumped" before and I'll be gazumped again, so need to worry.


At least we agree on which ship to track so if the information is wrong, I will at least have someone else to blame
