Transporting A Car with Personal Items Inside

Best way to ensure a safe and easy way to move your car with items

On most routes offered by Moving Cars, there is now an option for you to leave some personal items in the vehicle being transported.

There are some simple rules and advice to follow



This may seem straightforward, but you would be surprised by what some customers leave in their vehicles.

We will not carry or otherwise handle Dangerous Items, including, but not limited to, dangerous goods, weapons, firearms, ammunition, petrol and fuel, LPG/propane cylinders, or any other item that we reasonably believe to be dangerous.


Transporting a car with perishable goods

perishable-goodsAnother no-no: if there is any chance that transport is delayed, you can guarantee it will be in a vehicle that someone in their wisdom has decided to leave last week's groceries in the boot, so please, no perishables.


Moving Pot Plants and any live item

pot plants in carsAgain, we hope that this is reasonably obvious. There are some quarantine restrictions on moving plants, and again, they will perish stuck in a locked car being transported across the country, so no Gladioli or any other type of plants, please.

A bit of common sense and courtesy

rubbish in carNo rubbish. We realise that often, people moving a car interstate are also moving home themselves, and everything is one mad rush, but take 10 min to clean out any rubbish or loose items floating around the cars; this is more to ensure something does not smell even worse at delivery than it did at collection, but also means that nothing of importance is adrift in the car.

More rules


Nothing can ever be on the front or behind the driver's seat.

Total goods can not exceed 80kg.

No legal or other responsibility will be taken on any personal items or goods left in the car, regardless of the type of transport booked.

No responsibility will be taken or investigated for any damage caused to the internals of your vehicle if you leave goods inside the car.

Try to pack everything into boxes or suitcases whenever possible. We recommend removalist boxes or any boxes purchased from a self-storage company, as these are very sturdy
