Hi Joe

  • Picked the BMW up from the Compliance Centre on Thursday. Went straight through with no problems, so that concluded what was a pretty painless process from start to finish (as you’d advised it would be!). Not only that, but I’ve got an absolutely fantastic car at a bargain price…. I can thoroughly recommend these 335D’s!
  • So the reason for the email is just to say thanks for your help and very clear advise, and for the efficiency of your service. It does make such a difference when dealing with someone who is so helpful. I may well bring another car in very soon, and you’ll be hearing from a couple of mates who now have your number and my recommendation!

Hi Joe,
Just wanted to send a quick thank you for all that you have done to help get the F pace to Wanaka for me.
Appreciate your efforts and will definitely be recommending your services to others.
As you can see the F pace is looking very at home here in Wanaka!
Thanks and kind regards,



Hi Joe/Brent,

We now have a fully complied Swift Motorhome parked at home – and my wife is thrilled!

First off a big thanks to you guys at McCullough for all your help and support. The shipping was the easiest part and it was only because you had the experience and came across so approachable and confident that I gave importing a go. And as a measure of success – your estimation of landed cost (including GST, duty, freight etc – but not including compliance or registration) was $117,840 and it actually cost me $117,761. It doesn’t get any closer than that given we are also dealing with the vagaries of exchange rates in the mix. You guys are good!

Then of course there was my compliance gaff – particularly the lack of ESC. All I can say is the guys at VINZ were brilliant.

But all’s well that ends well. And I am so appreciative of the extra support you gave me through the compliance process – even though you really had no obligation to do that. Above and beyond the call of duty.

Thanks again from a very satisfied customer.





Just wanted to say thanks so much for your help and advice. For a first time importer like myself, you made the process so much easier and heaps less stressy!!

Thank you so much!!
