Jestin:
are you guys suggesting it is better to use containerised?

Yes.

I'm sure the agent removes the battery and whatsoever. There's no way a vandals would have opened a burnet removing battery alone without touching the brain box, coils, and catalyst underneath.
The damaged front headlamp and the bumper could be as a mistake from the port.

Just like Jon Snow, you know absolutely nothing my brother, just die the case, let people who are in the game talk

chukel:
didn't know these things still happen. That bumper can be fixed.
you were totally right. He took the car to the panel beater after sending him money for the new bumper and the panel beater said the bumper can be worked on so no need for new one. I agreed and said he should make a refund after paying the panel beater.

what he probably meant was sometimes if your agent knows way he could prevent boys in port from looting your car.

the problem is that the car came immediately the Vin-evaluation issue started so the car was at Lagos port for too long. He did test run the car and he said it is sounding like Turbo Engine and like someone commented, I hope the catalyst was not removed

Cokahot:
Why u no just waka round ,find original tokunbo with catalyst and every other thing intact,non accidented. Than the wohala u r passing thru now. Now the lexus can't remain the same again. U4 just buy for here
Aft all na imported. I'm so sure they have removed catalyst
Very obvious
If keys and battery are missing wetim come be catalyst. Check if the car amplifier has not been removed too o. Check inside glove box,remove it.
how do you know if the catalyst has been removed? He tested the car and said it is sounding like a turbo engine. How much is the catalyst sold for it to be important to the vandals

You know damn sure that's not what they meant...

Besides, can u kindly tell me how his agent could prevent theft at cotonou Port for eg, or how his agent could prevent the mishandling and theft on vehicles inside terminal by the shipping companies workers

They bash person car during loading and offloading and people for NL are saying his agent is responsible, lol

Pls if you have enough cash,ship your car via container and worry about the issues peculiar to container shipping instead, you can put only one car inside container sef,as egbon concerned. Else you ship via roro and hope for the best

Ok, if the catalyst has been stolen inside the terminal too,someone will come here and start asking you to hold your agent responsible again.

Nigerians like soft target sha, as they no get the connections to battle the big guys,they pick on the ones wey reach their hand

It's just like how people to go bank for transactions and there's bad network delaying transactions and they start heaping insults on the poor bank teller who's only job is to operate the system in front of him

Let’s leave cotonue boss and do regular ports. I had my experience last year. The Lexus had some documentation problems so it could not be cleared. In total car spent 10 weeks inside the port. I was already expecting the worse. Car came out and not a single thing was stolen from it. Not even the keys or the side mirror. It just had minor dents from offloading and that was it. Hence my believe that to an extent a well grounded agent may know one or two ways to prevent stuffs from being stolen from a car. Doesn’t mean if anything is stolen it is the fault of the agent though. That’s purely a Nigerian problem

Stop wasting ur time quoting him, who knows if he's the agent.
As if there are no securities in ports to an extent vandals would have enough time to do all those stealings.
My car was vandalized during Endsars, battery, coils, brain box, and catalyst was removed.
My point? Vandals cannot steals a battery without touching your coils (9k par one)9k * 6 = 54k. And brain box which should cost more than the battery with just 10"bolt holding it lol.
Most agents are thieves most especially those that resides in ajegunle and olodi apapa. (personal experience).
They sees clients (living abroad) as a soft targets, making sure they exploits them to the best of their abilities grin

If every Lexus that comes to Nigeria gets the same fate as the OPs', then we wouldn't be having this discussion

There are still thousands of people who import Lexus using those useless agents and they get their cars just like you got yours.

Also, you say your agent is Superman therefore nothing can go missing on your cars abi, ok.

You didn't understand my cotonou comment,it means you're still not fully grounded on the way some of these things happen, pls I wasn't referring to importing cars from cotonou, instead I'm talking about that your car which is coming to Lagos on a vessel, while the vessel is in transit, shit could go missing before it even arrives naija, hope you get it now

Second comment I still mentioned if at all they couldn’t help it’s not anybody fault it just how Nigeria is. Thirdly It was obvious I was talking about theft not damage from handling as I still mentioned a car of mine to have been damaged from handling parts were just not stolen . So I don’t even know why you are getting yourself worked up over a normal conversation. Shalom boss wink

Lol, that is normal vaIarinz, he thrives on inserting himself into situations like this, for maximum attention, followed by snide and condescending comments. Best way to make him go away is to ignore him completely.

Take a look at all the comments he's made so far on this thread. No single helpful post, all sarcasm and irrelevant nonsense.

For someone who just registered 2 months ago, you know so much about Valarinz undecided

Quote and talk with your original moniker, did they ban it or you're just a coward?
