I am on 18x9 +30mm offset, I need to use 5mm spacers to clear my coilovers in the front wheels though. So it also depends on what type of suspension you use.

searail used to be decent couple years ago, and it started going downhill probably 3 or 4 years ago ~ after they lost many contracts from car manufacturers. they used to inspect all the cars before and after ship (i think before they move the car from lot to ship / rail, and after; as well as before unload and after unload, to ensure if it's damaged during shipping or while their staff moves the vehicles).

i think u should deal with them and they should have insurance to cover, too bad the car is not insured yet or else u could get ICBC to cover ur a$$.

Well I prefer the "flush"/mild wheel poke fitment on 240's, which would mean you would need the 18x9 fronts to be at least a +12 or lower offset, and the rear 18X10 wheels to be at least a +20 if not more like +15. But wheels like that require a decent amount of fender work and tire stretch to fit. Run slightly higher offsets, you can stuff wider tires under. But with the sizes you chose, you may have to use spacers to clear your coilovers.
