Car Transport Interstate


At Moving Cars we like to provide instant car transport quotes to and from as many towns and cities in Australia as possible.

This however is not always possible, so we have a team of staff sat poised with their abacuses ready to work out your quote, if our system does not do it automatically.

What does this mean for you?

This means that during normal working hours, you will never have to wait more than an hour for a quote, often much less.

Bear in mind that our instant pricing normally covers about 90% of our enquiries, so on weekends and evenings and pretty much any other time of the day, most transport quotes will be back to you straight away.

Our service is Australia wide, and your car will be transported safely and securely by a recognised car carrier.

Lining up all the ducks in car transport

Logistics and Efficiency

Putting Us Ahead

Moving Cars has been involved in car carrying and vehicle transport for over 16 years, we have the experience to help you with any of your requirements

Basically we specialise in long distance car transport, so if say you bought a car in Bowen in Queensland and want it transported to Brisbane, then we would be the company to call.

If however you broke down on the way home last night, and need the car towed home, then you really need a towing company, as opposed to a car transport company.

I hope that makes it a little clearer, if you work on the principle that you need your car moved over a greater distance than say 200km then call Moving Cars

Car Transport Quote Compare

We compare car quote prices from multiple carriers to ensure that our prices are always the best available, however, if by any slight chance you find a better price with a comparable service we are happy to try and match/ beat that price.

Please be sure that when you start to scrutinize different options to transport your vehicle, please ensure that you are comparing a like for like service, some of our carriers offer full insurance when moving a car, others can only provide a basic damage cover.

Often for the sake of a few dollars more, you can often move your car interstate with total comprehensive cover, no more stressing over the thought that your car may get damaged when it's being transported.If it's insured then this will put your mind at ease.

One of the other things to contemplate when looking at all your options for car transporters is are they an Australian Company or simply an add-on to an international lead generating site. They are plenty of websites/ car carriers to choose from, why would you need to choose a company that does not even register a website. To register an Australian domain, you need to be registered and operating in this country, so bear that in mind when choosing who is going to be moving your vehicle, keep it local.

To compare interstate car transport quotes, it's often best to look at all options, sometimes a carrier offers the best price if you opt for a depot service, other times they offer a door collection or even a call to meet. The first two options may be clear enough, but what is "call to meet"

Call To Meet Transport Quote

This simply means to ensure that you get the cheapest car transport quote available, sometimes the carrier will ask that you bring your car to a pre-arranged spot to meet the truck. This saves the driver and company time and money, by not having to drive into suburban streets or more remote areas. For instance if you lived in Grafton and were looking at moving your car to Perth, a truck that was on its way to Sydney would call you and get you to meet a the servo on the highway, saving him coming into the main area of town, and having to avoid low bridges, or road that large trucks are forbidden to travel on. This keeps the price a little lower for you and makes it easier for the car transport truck

When looking at Interstate Car transport compare all your options, and make sure you get the best value for money service that is available. Moving Cars believes that we offer that service in bucket-loads, just give us a try and let's make this the easier part of moving your car.
