Vital information for transporting your vehicle to Perth and W.A

So you’re moving your car over to Perth, and you’ve found us to do the job for you. You can be sure that you’re vehicle is in safe hands, and will get across in exactly the same condition that you had it originally.

We begin daily trips across to Perth from all across Australia. As far up as Darwin or Cairns, all the way east from Brisbane, even Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Hobart. From any metro area in Australia you can begin your car move across to Perth tomorrow.


Moving over to Perth is a big move, for car or furniture. Because of the distance there are a few more things to think about than most other routes.
Below are a few things that you need to keep in mind and be aware of when moving your car across to Western Australia.


Lets presume you’ve gone through the booking process already, as it is no different going to Perth or anywhere else.


Although if you’re only starting to look at getting your car moved, I recommend that you head to our instant online quote page, where we require only a handful of details and can then provide you a firm price and a great deal of useful information.
If your vehicle is being collected from your address, you will receive a call from the car carrier in regards to a collection time, either the day before or the morning of collection.If you are planning to drop it off into one of the Depots please be aware that they are not open on Weekends or most national public holidays.
The depot hours are Monday – Friday from class 8:30am to 4:00pm.
These times are also applicable for both collections and deliveries to addresses.
Please note that all transit times are estimates only and can never be guaranteed. At the time of finalising your car move, we are provided an estimation of transit, which we use to update our quotes transit time very regularly.
There can be at times delays in transit due to High Volumes, peak periods, floods, rail delays and so on. Transit times are provided in business days and do not include weekends or public holidays.



You are aware that the car must be totally empty of any personal items.

Personal belongings are under no circumstances to be left in a vehicle being moved to Western Australia.

This does include, bags, boxes, tools and similar items, Baby seats are fine as long as they are secured in the same way they would be if being used by your child.



At both collection and delivery, there must be somebody present to hand over the keys for the vehicle. This person will also be required to do a vehicle check (similar to what you do when renting a car) and also sign off on the vehicle being taken. If you are unavailable this job is best left to your most trusted friend/family.



All vehicles heading to Perth and Western Australia are subject to a quarantine inspection and depending on the condition of the vehicle, there may be additional charges.If the vehicle is found to be contaminated and does not pass Quarantine Inspection you will incur a minimum Quarantine cleaning fee of approximately $125.



Once your vehicle has been cleaned an Inspector will be then required to make a 2nd inspection and this may also incur additional costs.These funds are payable to the car carrier not Moving Cars, as the car carrier directly pays Quarantine.If for any reason, after payment has been made you decide that you need to cancel, we reserve the right to charge a cancellation fee of between $80.00 and $195.00 depending on circumstances of cancellation, plus any additional charges related to incorrect information supplied at time of booking.Any refunds that are needed can take up to 5 business days to process.
