Cost of Hiring Vehicle Clearing Agents at Beitbridge or Plumtree: My own experience
This article is based on my own experience. Things may have changed, since I bought my car nearly three years ago. However, at that time, I chose to have my car delivered to Plumtree. Feel free to leave a comment in the section below if there have been any changes.
Anyway, before my car arrived at Plumtree, I was notified that it’s papers were going to be in the hands of a clearing agent who had been chosen by Be Forward. All that I needed to do was go there and I could clear the car on my own.
However, when I got there, I decided to let the agent do all the running around on my behalf. So, what is the cost of hiring vehicle clearing agents at Beitbridge or Plumtree? I can’t remember the name of the agent offhand.
