After being bumped from the Endurance last week, I have been periodically checking the Wallenius Wilhelmsen website to see the status of my Clubman. After a week of seeing nothing but, RETURNED TO SHIPPER status, yesterday, the Wallenius Wilhelmsen website showed that my VIN number had been booked on the next vehicle carrier leaving Southampton for Baltimore…the Parsifal. Then, this morning, I saw the magic status, LOADED ON VESSEL.
The Parsifal’s started it’s voyage to Baltimore at about 3:00pm CST, and is scheduled to arrive in Baltimore on June 27th.
After speaking with Jason, my Motoring Advisor at Knauz MINI, he seem pretty confident that I will be driving my new Clubman come the first week of July. That would mean it will take about a week for my car to get through the Vehicle Distribution Center in Baltimore to Knauz MINI in Chicago, prepped by Knauz MINI, and then delivered to me. That is the timeframe I was estimating had my Clubman made it onto the Endurance…which is scheduled to arrive in Baltimore today!
