Here are just some letters of recommendation that we have received from our satisfied customers.

Dear Rob,

I would like to take this opportunity to thankyou sincerely for the excellent service you have provided in importing the 1928 Model A Ford from the USA. I have been quite surprised at the ease with which the whole thing has been achieved, as I expected much more trouble, considering the state of the car and the accompanying bits and pieces (parts).

You seem to have all the knowledge and experience to overcome all the perceived issues associated with importing. You may be sure that if I decide to bring in another car at some time in the future, you will definitely be the first to know.

Thanks again.

Yours sincerely

John - City Beach, Western Australia - February 2008

Hi Rob,

I just wanted to thank you for your work in getting my Ford F100 here for me, if it wasn't for you I wouldn't have even attempted to bring a vehicle over.

It's probably no big deal for you do this sort of thing, but it was a very daunting experience for me, but your expertise in arranging everything made the process a lot less worrying for me.

Anyway Rob, a big thankyou to you and I hope we can do it again soon.

Kind regards

Scott - Geelong, Victoria - 2008

For around 8 years now I have been a regular customer of American Hemi Speed Centre, based in Adelaide, South Australia.

Several cars, engines and many parts have now been freighted from the U.S.A. I would highly recommend the service and commitment that is provided for importing cars and parts from the U.S.A. to Australia.

Full and correct communication of all details are provided from beginning to the end of any importation.

The reliability of sources, contacts and help, both here and within the U.S. have proved consistent, cost effective and without problem.

Most importantly, I know that if any problem would arise it would be dealt with in a very fair and honest manner.

The focus of American Hemi Speed Centre has proved invaluable to my involvement in the old auto hobby.

Tony - Townsville, Queensland - 2007

American Hemi Speed Centre has imported several cars for me over the past 6 years.

Rob Thompson was, and still is, very helpful with any concerns I might have had or have about importing cars and tracking them down etc.

He was referred to me through a friend who owned a Towing Business and I did not know him at all and did not know what to expect as I was wary about importing a car as I found no help with ‘other’ importers.

I was given a detailed quote (other importers did not want to supply one) and was told where the car was at, trucking to the docks, arrival at the shipping company, storage, ship whereabouts, arrival and quarantine proceedings and when the car can be picked up!!!

An extremely helpful guy who will help any way that he can.

I will only use this company for any future Importing as it is VERY hard to trust import companies and the people who run them.

I would highly recommend American Hemi to anyone who has any doubts about importing a car.

Yours Honestly,

Lawrence - Adelaide, South Australia - 2010

I would like to thank Rob at American Hemi Speed Centre for organising all aspects of importing my vehicle to Australia. The service was excellent and any enquiries were dealt with immediately.

The car arrived in excellent condition and I would not hesitate in recommending American Hemi Speed Centre to anyone who is looking to import a vehicle or parts.

Rob Evans - South Australia - 2006

To all prospective importers of boats/cars from the USA to Australia...

If you want a relatively hassle-free service where... ALL documentation is organised, completed and sent to you ahead of time. All dates and or date changes (including possible date changes) are communicated to you at every turn. "Friendly" meets "efficiency" in equally high proportions. Your vehicle arrives in good nick. You don't get ripped off...

Then I can recommend doing everything through American Speed Centre - great service - excellent communications - reasonable rates.

Am happy to recommend this service to anyone.

NB - I imported a 79 Bayliner from Seattle to Brisbane and am delighted with my purchase, and grateful to Rob and his wife for all their help and advice.

Sean, Newcastle, New South Wales - 2007

I contacted Rob regarding bringing my new purchase from Seattle to Australia, and he dealt with everything.

He made it such an easy process, I have passed his name onto everyone that asks, and I will be using him again shortly to bring in some more toys.

Many Thanks Rob. I look forward to dealing with you again.

Brett Thomson - Brisbane, Queensland

During 2005 I called upon American Hemi Speed Centre to source an early HEMI rebuilder engine.

Rob Thompson provided me with a number of suitable prospects and vaulable advice. The engine purchase and transaction and importation was handled by Rob with a minimum of fuss on time and on budget (rare these days).

In 2007 we once again called upon American Hemi Speed Centre, this time a vehicle importation.

Rob's knowledge and contacts in the USA made importing a car an easy step by step process. On both occasions I have had nothing but praise for Rob who handled both internal freight in the USA and the importation.

I have no hesitation in recommending American Hemi Speed Centre and look forward to further importation the Rob Thompson way.

Kindest regards
