Quotes and pricing

Q.         I just went online and put a quote through but it did not give me an instant price, why is this?

A          Sometimes you may not receive an instant quote from our website or over the phone as your quote request may not be for a major city or standard vehicle. If you submit a quote and do not get a price instantly then it will come through to us and we will be sure to price this and email your quote to you.

Do I have to remove vehicle accessories?

Yes, removal of rear window louvers, weather shields and aerials where possible, roof racks and pods.

Quarantine Inspections.

If your car is traveling to Western Australia and Tasmania, your vehicle is subject to a quarantine inspection and is subject to additional charges that may occur.
If the vehicle is found to be contaminated and does not pass Quarantine Inspection you will incur a minimum Quarantine cleaning fee of approx $125.

Once your vehicle has been cleaned an Inspector will be then required to make a 2nd inspection and will incur additional charges.
These funds are payable to the car carrier not us, as the car carrier directly pays Quarantine.

When can you pick my car up from the the collection address I provided?

If you are requesting a collection from within a metro area of a major city a payment needs to be received 48 hours prior to a collection.
