    Default Any POSITIVE experiences with car carriers?

    Hi All

    i need to move a car from Perth to Canberra.

    The reviews I've read of the budget agents are appalling and some of the recognised carriers are not much better.

    Anyone had a positive experience?

    Thanks

    None, but I suggest to start with the guys who advertise in classic car mags as they are probably a cut above the other ones you mention. The disadvantage you have is that you could get the advantage of being a backload given the direction desired, but time is not on your side I’m guessing.

    The other option to consider may be the train to Melbourne, then drive from there?

    Hi Ex

    We moved two vehicles (including our C5) from WA to Canberra in August this year. The first (a Honda) went around the same time as our furniture and was picked up from Albany by Prix Cars, arranged through Allied Pickfords.

    The C5 went from Perth International airport terminal a couple of weeks later, but booked directly through Prix Cars.

    I found Prix Cars to be efficient and straightforward to deal with, the cars arrived when they were supposed to and other than being a bit dusty (open transport across the Nullarbor I guess) were in good shape. Cost was competitive - about $1100 from Perth to the north Canberra depot in Mitchell.

    Hope this helps

    I recently used CEVA. (Melbourne to Perth)
    Easy to deal with. Tracking site easy to use.
    They transported the car themselves and didn't subcontract it to other companies.
    I would use them again.
