   I have been through port of Baltimore 2 times in the last 8 weeks or so because of delays in booking through to Newark. no difficulties at all. 
expect to pay for an escort(by the hr) to collect the moke at the port of Baltimore. 
k line does allow limited items in the cars as stated by Bill.

Thanks! I gave him Emma's contact info and then Jamie Hill. The only downside for Emma is they don't do the UK transport, so that would need arranging too whereas Jamie hill does everything to get it onto the ship. Using Susan for the broker.

Thanks! When I picked up one of my Mokes in Galveston, my uber driver had a TWIC card, but they still required a paid escort.

My three LBC's are all over 25 years old and carry these antique plates. I have never been stopped by the police nor does the DMV require verification of the annual 2,000 mile rule.
Thank you!

I have had one for about 12 years now.. saves lots of hasslee   and NO escort needed..  only cost  $125.25 and about an hour to get one.. accept at all 336 US ports.dido on getting proper US CUSTOMS broker.. most require a $50k bond.. which only costs $ 300 a year.. PHD.

A friend has purchased a 1990 Moke in the UK after getting it inspected earlier this week.  Car will be coming to Virginia. Virginia. VIN and Engine number match V5c.

Anything he should know about:

1) The pickup from Baltimore?
2) Registration in Virginia (We think no issues, no emissions, no safety test as over 25 years old)?
3) Anything else?

Also, it came with an extra set of wheels. Hard to transport from the UK as can't go with car.  Are the original wheels worth much, or shall we just leave them behind in the UK?
