Dear lmr,

I found no negative information about A&J, and in fact, they seem to
be reliable: they have a stable business for years.

The details about their website show, for example, that it exists since 2001. 

However, no matter how reliable a company might look, there are
several things that you can do:
- read carefully through the contract; 
- insure the goods in the car; 
- disucss the reliability of this and other car transfer companies at:

funny thank you.

Hi lmr-ga 

There IS more info on the company:

A&J Exhibitions Ltd 

Registered Office: 
CARLTON HOUSE
101 NEW LONDON ROAD
CHELMSFORD
ESSEX CM2 0PP
Company No. 03578745

Incorporated: 10/06/1998

Its last accounts for the Year Ended 31/12/2006 show that it is a
substantial company that it had Net Assets of 942,218 and that it was
a subsidiary of Verso Automation Ltd. This should give you the comfort
that you are seeking.

Please note that sourcing this information cost me 1, as a Subsriber
to Companies House Direct (I also pay a monthly fee to be a
subscriber.)

However, you cannot expect this depth of information from
Politicalguru-ga whose remuneration for her answer is only $1.50 -
less than 1.

However, I have supplemented Politicalguru's answer on this occasion
because you may not have appreciated the time and out-of-pocket costs
involved.

Please reward me by rating Politicalguru's answer with FIVE STARS and
please give her whatever tip you can afford.

Many thanks!

Bryan

A bit over 20 years ago I shipped my car to Spain from the US. I had
been instructed not to put anything in the car that might be stolen
and I heeded those warnings meticulously. Every loose item was
inventoried-- spare tire, tire iron, jack-- and photographs of the car
and engine were taken. The car was sealed at export customs and not
unsealed until it arrived for import inspection in Cadiz. The only
thing not listed or photographed was an ice scraper/snow brush (worth
maybe $2) that was a necessity in New England but would hardly be
needed in sunny southern Spain.

They stole it.
