    Icon5 NT Car Transport options?

    Hi all, just wondering if anyone has any experience getting a car from Darwin at the right price? After any options at this stage. I assume they don't do rail freight?

    Cheers,

    There is a car transport company that comes through here regularly. I think it is called Autotrans of Kewdale. A division of the Toll Group. i know they drop off and pick up on the Perth/Darwin/Perth run.

    I wouldn't assume there is no rail transport. They completed the rail line to Darwin about 5 years ago and the Ghan runs Adelaide to Darwin now.

    So how about a nice holiday on the Ghan, with a cheap car transport with your ticket, same as the Indian Pacific. Then Indian Pacific Adelaide to Perth. That is assuming you could spend thousands on a holiday just to get the car shipped cheaply.

    Otherwise, road transport will be the go.

    I could argue that by the time you've been jerked around thoroughly trying to organise transport, emptying the car first and picking it up afterwards in whatever condition is presented, you might prefer the simple drive down to Alice Springs then across to Uluru and then a bit of dirt to Laverton (and then you're nearly home).

    And it is a diesel, so fuel between Uluru and Laverton isn't an issue.
