From Ken and his VickyWe would like to thank Jessica & Kevin Bailey for the great job they did in importing our 32 Ford .
We would definitely use Cheetah Imports again.
Peter and his partsKevin,
Everything worked out great from my end, thanks again for all your help.
All the best to you in the coming years.
Regards from David Dann.Regarding my experience with Cheetah imports, I've brought in several cars from the USA with other companies, and all I can say is that I wish I'd have stumbled upon Kevin and Jess earlier. I had a rather difficult importing job for them, I had a car I needed brought in from Canada. Not only did Kevin manage this with good humour and grace, he MET ME at a pre allocated spot, on time, and with a trailer to pick up my car.
The car turned up in Melbourne pretty much when they told me it would, no delays, no stories about containers not being full etc…..
Just good dependable service. I WILL use them again.
Thank you Kevin and Jess.
Regards from David Dann.
