Special Notes

To use the above DAFF pre-cleaned & pre-cleared system and pricing, you either cannot ship other items in the vehicle, or we have to get pre-approval from Japan to allow a small amount of items to be shipped. All vehicles containing too many other items to use this service must go through the normal DAFF process after the vehicles arrive in Australia, which normally requires steam cleaning to be done after arrival, incurring extra costs of approximately AUD 300.00 per vehicle (including DAFF’s processing charges).
