Any Vic members near Bayswater

Post  Bosco15 on Sun 17 Apr 2016, 6:33 am



I'm geographically challenged when it comes to Melbourne suburbs.  
Are there any Victorian members who live near or frequently travel through or who are willing to swing by Bayswater?  
I would really appreciate it if anyone could confirm that Import Monster is a legitimate business, please.  

4/2 Clare st Bayswater. 

They have a warehouse which is open to the public with all sorts imported from Japan.  
I am currently working on bringing a bike in from Japan and would love confirmation of the legitimacy of this business.  
I have googled reviews, but an actual visual confirmation from a trusted source would really set my mind at ease.

I know it's not much of an event, but any excuse to get out for a ride, hey?

Thanks in advance, guys and girls.

Its a few blocks from the AMX store I intend to visit in the next couple of weeks. I'm happy to have a look if you can wait.

Thanks 2Wheels. That would help tremendously. 
I'm pretty confident that it's a legit business, you never know these days.

Their Facebook and any online presence indicates they deal in cars only https://www.facebook.com/ImportMonster/

Edit: Just found their bikes page.

Just had a thought Bosco.....

Do you want someone to actually go in and talk to them, or just do a drive by and confirm the name on the side of the premises?

If its just a drive by, can you use google earth street view to find out, or is it too recent change of address to be positive?

I`ve done that quiet a few times to look at places, before I`ve contemplated going somewhere.

That's a really good idea. 
I never even thought about Google Earth.  
Awesome.  Thanks. 
And thanks to Maybe_Mike. Very Happy

I was street viewing yesterday on gvt time and there's nothing to indicate what the business at the address actually is unfortunately. Well not from what I could see anyway.

Is that Greenwich Victorian Time? Razz

I would expect some sort of indication of the business name to be on the building, as it is supposed to be not only an import depot but an open to the public store. 
Having said that, the business has just relocated to new premises, purportedly.
