Some Tips When Preparing Your Car Transport

- Remove all personal belongings from the car. Aside from a spare tire, car jack, car manual and baby seat. Some carriers allow you to leave personal items inside the car during transport but do not take any responsibility for damaged or missing items.
- Make sure your car is drivable, most carriers will still transport your car if it is not in a drivable state, but extra costs will apply, if they are unable to be driven a working steering wheel and hand/foot breaks are still required.
- If you’re transporting your car door to door ensure that both locations are accessible by the carrier.
- Ensure you are present for a vehicle inspection prior to loading and note any damages to the car, also check there are no additional damages when receiving the vehicle. Do not take the car until you’re satisfied with it.
- If you are transporting the car to WA, ensure it is cleaned, inside and out, prior to transportation. Any vehicle coming from interstate will be subject to a quarantine inspection and additional fees may apply if the car requires cleaning at the border.
