10 years ago, shipping a vehicle to or from a regional area in Australia would require dozens of back-and-forth phone calls between various carriers to try to line up legs of the journey, if it were possible at all. Now, companies like Automove can electronically collate data from multiple carriers to generate the best car shipping quote for you in seconds.
Automove can arrange for your vehicle to be picked up and delivered from depot to depot or door to door in just about every area in Australia. While other car shipping companies will merely generate a quote for available locations, at Automove we work with car shipping carriers all over the country to ensure you get the quote you need to move your vehicle safely and securely to your desired destination.
And if you can't find a cheap car transport quote to your desired location using our Online Price List generator, our friendly customer service team will work with you to acquire a specialised quote. You can contact our customer service centre on 1300 50 60 30 to request a specialised quote to any regional area in Australia.
A few points to consider when booking vehicle transportation:
1. For vehicle relocation to or from any property address in Australia, the street and the property must be accessible by a small tilt-tray truck to be able to load the vehicle onto the freight carrier.
2. For door-to-door services someone must be present to receive or hand over the vehicle.
3. For door pickups carriers require at least two business days' notice to organise a pickup. Most of our carriers are open Monday to Friday from 8.30 am to 4:00 pm excluding public holidays.
4. Vehicles entering WA from another state are subject to a quarantine inspection, so make sure your vehicle is clean from any excess dirt inside and out. Fees may apply if the vehicle is deemed too dirty to enter WA and require cleaning at the border.
5. Most car shipping carriers use open air trucks. However, for some long haul trips part of the journey might be made in an enclosed container on a train. If you require a fully enclosed service for the entire journey, this can be provided at an extra cost. Get in touch with the customer service team on 1300 50 60 30 if you require this service.
