Loc: Burlington, On, Canada Eh !!!!
I have done a few Vanner Expresses lately and I have some problems that keep coming up...Especially with the border involved...

1/ First of all. Make sure the parts are clean, and protected from damage ! These are going through multiple hands, and many custom vehicles so the need to protect those vehicles are paramount. As well as going to eVANt's the vehicles are loaded, so make sure delicate parts are protected from accidental damage..and sometimes the transport vans need to be slept in on the way ....

2/ State clearly what is being moved and where it is to end up. And especially if there are hand offs on the way , make sure all the participants are known, and they actually know about it .. I have run into a couple instances where the relay guy, was not told he volunteered for something, when the parts were dropped at his site .. LOL Surprise !! And don't forget to label it either...I did over 70 deliveries in the last couple years and killed a few brain cells on the way....Labels are a good reminder who gets what !

3/And don't fudge what it is.... Today I went to pick up 2 front fenders and a grill for a " vanner " that he won on eBay.....Well, that is fine . However, finding out that it should fit when I arrived was an interesting comment...Finding out it was a complete intact front clip including frame was a bit of a surprise ! The shipper said I could do what I want with the motor still bolted in to the frame smile Nice of him, anyone want a slant six ???? The hole in the block is not all that big smile

4/ Follow up on it ! I just heard of a FG part that is sitting at a relay point, after it was picked up at the Natz in July !

So, in short Communicate guys !!!

Geez Doc, What a crazy story. Good luck loading that front clip into a minivan. lol
I have never had any issues with my vanner express. And I am always willing to help when I can. But that is some good advice you give there.

This is a really good one too! I found a brand new bug shield in my trailer a week ago. I remembered where it came from, but had forgotten that I had it. Even worse, I had no idea who it was supposed to go to. I finally had an idea, and contacted who I thought it was and sent it along its journey. I've had it since October.

OOPS!
