Loc: Perth, WA, Australia
I was the same when my car was shipped from Sydney to Perth. I knwew it had been collected and was advised to allow 10 days for it to arrive. After 14 days I called to ask where it was. Turns out it was still in Sydney (various excuses followed including it's an old car and would not start).
I was advised it was going via rail the next day. A day later I was called to advised it would not fit (too narrow). After a futher few days it let by road to Adeliade where it could be loaded on the train (for which it was previously too narrow). I was told allow 10 days from then.
I went to Korea with work, I landed back at Hong Kong to change planes, where I had a one hour layover. Checked my email and voicemail. Call from the transport company (after 7 days) saying the car was ready to collect. Since it was a Friday they were closing at 4pm and rain was forecast. I googled recovery companies in Perth and was able to arrange pick-up/delivery (blind faith). Turns out they subcontracted the job to a guy with a pick-up truck that the bed could be put right on the road. Perfect.
When I got home late that night I saw the car for the first time. There was a note on the dashboard saying "press here" and "pull here" with arrows. The press was to a silver button on the dashboard (not wired - no idea what it was for) and the pull was to the heater cable under the steering column - OK it looks like a choke!
For me the car "suddenly" arrived when I least expected it - I hope it's the same for you. The wait will suddenly seem like a blip and be quickly forgotton I am sure. Quality is remembered long after delays are forgotten (or something like that!!).
