Are you thinking about shipping a car, van, ute, trailer, motorcycle, quad bike, boat trailer, caravan or golf cart to Australia?
Whether it’s part of your overall household goods move or an ‘one off’, you’ve come to the right place. We specialise in vehicle shipping. While Ausmove staff can help you estimate the duties, luxury tax (if applicable), compliance, and GST costs associated with importing a car into Australia, these costs are outside our control. The decision is ultimately yours. That’s why the first things we advise is for you to do your homework. Is your vehicle eligible, and do the shipping and compliance costs make it worthwhile vs the cost of replacing in Australia? In most cases yes, and it also depends on your status of arrival into Australia with regards to import concessions.

Once you’ve made the decision to ship, don’t be put off by the paperwork and documentation, as these can be daunting. We are an experienced vehicle shipping company and will guide you through every step of the vehicle importation process.
Ausmove can provide a range of both container and shipping options, to meet every need. We are a little ‘old school’ and prefer to containerise your vehicle, that’s for safety and security reasons. Inside the container we secure your car from 4 corners, then build a bulkhead or wall, and chock the wheels. There’s virtually no possibility of movement. While the roll on roll off (RORO) service may appear more convenient and in some cases cheaper, there can be issues around accidental 3rd party handling damage, having to leave your car unlocked or having it exposed to extreme weather events on ports. All vehicles must also be in condition to roll on and roll off i.e. driveable.
Once you’ve decided to relocate your car or motorised vehicle it’s very efficient and inexpensive for Ausmove to pack it into same container as your household goods shipment. That’s how most of our vehicles are shipped. However, due to Ausmove’s solid volume of shared containers, it’s also standard practice for us to send a single vehicle in a container with the personal effects of other customers. This is also very cost effective, as everyone just pays their share of the freight costs. Another option is for us to secure a single car into its own ‘sole use’ 20-foot container or 2-3 vehicle combo into a 40-footer.
