We arrived into Haifa on the 26th Feb to a mess, our shipping papers were not in order so it take two full days at the port to rectify this.
It turns out that the shippers did not prepare the appropriate bill of lading for the cars and treat them as a freight item, their attitude was drop them off and sail off for the next pick up!

Port Costs were high i.e. 100 Euro/car for shipping agent, 150/car Euro for car insurance and 1100 NIS for shipping fees. This on top of multiple security checks and paper work errors between customs, security and the DVLA compounded the stress further.
