Whether it’s transporting a car, motorcycle, boat, campervan or other vehicle, everyone wants a helpful tip.

Here are some helpful tips that will save you time and money the next time you’re looking to transport a vehicle in Australia.

Do the Maths

Compare the costs between driving and transporting your vehicle with a car transport company.

You’ll be surprised how cost effective vehicle transport really can be. The time you save, plus the often cheap airfares is money in your pocket.

Plus, for business and leisure trips, there are many benefits of having your own vehicle rather than a rental car at your destination. Some people just love their own 4WD, prestige bikes or sports cars so much they want to have them with them!

Don't Take Things for Granted

Vehicle transport comes complete with it’s own jargon and it’s good to ask questions if things seem unclear.

Ask lots of questions before choosing a car carrier.

Give them the opportunity of showing you what makes them the best car transport company in the industry.

Give Your Vehicle a Good Clean Beforehand

Give your vehicle a good clean before the trip. Not only will you find those lost CD’s, sunglasses and the sunscreen lotion, you’ll help us a lot by removing all loose items and any plant or animal matter.

Important areas to check are the wiper wells and undercarriage of your vehicle as unfortunate little insects and seeds are a quarantine issue and must be removed. 

It takes time and extra cost if the carriers needs to do the cleaning.

Balancing Budget and Convenience

Two things you’ll want to consider are budget and convenience.

Check for different types of pricing (door-to-door, depot-to-depot or a mix of the two).

Car carriers can usually tailor a move to meet your needs.

If choosing a depot drop off or pickup, factor in how you’ll get home, work, airport or to your next destination. So, remember to grab that iPod, magazine or newspaper and enjoy the ride.

Check Fuel Levels

Most car transport companies prefer you to have the petrol tank ¼ full at the time of transporting.

Before you drop off your vehicle, take a quick look at the fuel gauge.
