We have further enhanced our asbestos sampling process for vehicles and motorcycles coming to Australia. Asbestos material was sometimes used in areas such as brake linings for vehicles that were built during the periods that align with the commonly imported classic cars.
It is important for importers to know that asbestos is a prohibited material which cannot be imported into Australia. To help our customers avoid issues in Australia, asbestos sampling is now included in our pricing. We're here to answer any questions when it comes to testing.
