    Default Move Trailer from Adelaide to Perth - Help pls

    An odd one. I need to get an empty 7' X 5' trailer from Adelaide to Perth, preferably to Geraldton.

    I've posted here because it might be the opportunity for someone to get some parts east to west moved or to have fuel costs subsidised or met.

    Anyone know of anyone crossing The Paddock? Or any leads on cheap freight?

    All the best

    Maybe next April, but that is little help.

    If you do get a taker, my spare R8 gearbox is still in Adelaide and I'm trying to find a lift for it to Perth!

    Surely the train would be the cheapest (if you can find a car to attach it too ). It would cost an arm and leg in fuel cost to tow a twin axle trailer that distance...... Unless someone has a huge load they want to shift one way ....

    If you can't get someone to tow it across 'cos they're coming that way, I can't imagine it could be done economically.

    Is it sound enough to withstand a trip fully laden?

    I would imagine the cost of freight would be the same as a small car.

    Why not sell it in Adelaide and buy another one closer to home?

    Thanks Philip, that's exactly the maths we're doing. Which is why we're looking to hitch a ride with a passing motorist.

    Just to clear up matters its a single axle box trailer, not a dual as suggested above. And yes we'd get the thing serviced and new tyres on before being picked up.
