    Car Transport - Perth -> Brisbane

    Hey Guys,

    My brother has an Astra which he needs transported from Perth to Brisbane. He's had a quick look around and has got a price of about $1200 on road transport.

    Has anyone used any particular company for this journey? Or the other way? What kind of cost? Better to user rail over road?

    It will be happening in about 5-6 weeks if it makes a difference!

    Thanks all.

    Kev

    Kev,

    Check out Rail price too! we sent our Rally car Over there and Back for Rally Oz that way a couple of times. (we did a precautionary change/check and repack of wheel bearings before competition both times though)

    Kev that sounds like about the right price.

    Any way you transport a car will involve risk, make sure they are insured, and that the condition of the car is logged before and immediately after transport.

    The majority of perth all goes via a combined road / rail service anyways.

    Std service which could be rail from Perth to Adelaide and then Truck to Brisbane
    Cov Service Train all the way to Brissie

    with the Std Service though they could decide to leave it on the rail all the way but no guarantee they could off-load it at Adelaide

    Tell him to get a written quote or a quote number and I ll beat the price for you.

    cheers
