One of the most difficult tasks in deciding a car transport solution is choosing a company that is reputable and open or enclosed.

Open or enclosed?
Well open means cars are put on a trailer where it will experience whatever weather it will be transported through and enclosed meaning basically a boxed trailer protecting your vehicle from all sorts of weather.
Generally you only need enclosed for classic cars, show cars, and any expensive cars.
There is always a chance for any type of damage with both open and enclosed trailers.

So, how much does car Transport cost with Moving Cars?
Pricing is very competitive, we aim to get you the cheapest prices going around.
There is no exact price to move your car across country.
The bigger vehicles like trucks, SUVs, 4WDs and vans are more expensive to transport than sedans.
Also, modifications to suspension (like being lowered or lifted) or oversized tires can impact the cost of car transport. Basically, the larger the vehicle, the higher the price to transport.
Lowered vehicles can be transported by Moving Cars but only by one Car Carrier.
This information is detriment therefore you need to advise customer service at time of quoting.
All Moving Cars prices are inclusive of GST.

Transport options

Depot to Depot is often a less expensive option. Although, if your car is shipped depot-to-depot, there may by storage fees that accumulate each day the vehicle is kept in the depot yard.
These prices vary depending on who the actual carrier is but it can vary from $10-$55 per day.
The depot may be several hundred miles away from you, which can add travel costs for you to get to the closest depot yard.
Moving Cars door collection (from your residential address) would be the better option for you.
This of course is more expensive but would me more cost effective for you. Obviously, this is totally up our customers based on the convenience.
If a residential address is in a rural area, out of the way area or in an urban environment? While not a major factor, if the pickup area or destination points are not on heavily travelled routes or in hard to reach areas off the main highways, it can impact the vehicle transport cost.
Transit times are given once a quote has been done BUT these times are estimates only.

We have to take into consideration that there may be delays that Moving Cars are not advised of immediately.
Fuel Levy can also play a large part of transporting your vehicle.

The rising cost of fuel is enough to drive any car carrying company to the brink.

Transport operators work on extremely tight margins and fuel costs can fluctuate from month to month.
Moving Cars can also assist with transporting Non Driveable vehicles.
Bare in mind, non-drivable vehicles have to have foot brake, hand brake and steering all in full working order.
It will increase your quote as your vehicle will need to loaded/unloaded on and off the carrier with special equipment and or Tow Truck.
Moving Cars will NOT be able to assist with this option at all.
