Transit Times

There are currently delays nationally with NSW having the most issues. The volumes in NSW are at an all time high and we have current backlogs. Collections in Metro Sydney are on average taking 3-6 business days after you have placed your booking. Collections in regional NSW are taking longer. We are unable to give actual dates at the time of quoting or booking, so please be patient. Bookings placed online after hours, or on weekends will not not get actioned until the next business day. Confirmations may take up to 3 business days to be sent to you after you have booked and paid. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.

Delays from east to west/west to east and Northern Territory

Recent floods in remote SA, WA and the NT have caused damage to the rail network and roads.  Due to the remote locations, these roads and rail lines are not due to be fixed until mid February but then there is a backlog to get through once they are fixed.  This will cause delays on vehicles currently booked in and future bookings.  We apologise for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience.

PLEASE DO NOT PLAN ANYTHING AROUND RECEIVING YOUR CAR ON A SPECIFIC DATE.

DO NOT plan holidays, trips, meetings etc based on you receiving your car and our advised transit times. Please make alternative transport arrangements and be prepared to be without your vehicle.

Estimated Transit Times

THE TRANSIT TIME TABLE BELOW ARE OUR NORMAL ESTIMATED TRANSIT TIMES FOR EMPTY VEHICLES (NO POSSESSIONS) IN THE CAR. These are depot to depot transit times, and are based on the cheapest quote option - not always the fastest option.

These are NOT door to door transit times. Door collections and deliveries may take up to a week in Metro areas and longer for regional collections and deliveries.

Transit times are in no way guaranteed and can change from the quote stage to the booking stage. These can also change while your car is in transit. We have no control over market volumes, and each time your car passes through one of our depots in will join a queue again. Car transport can be a long process for long distances and the car will go through many depots from point "A" to "B". Vehicles rarely go direct. They will encounter any delays that may exist in each depot. Peak season is coming so be prepared for delays and make alternative arrangements other than relying on your vehicles arrival at its destination.

How transporting your car works

Nearly all movements involve cars moving through our depot network.

Depot to depot - you drop off and you collect your vehicles from our depots

Door to Depot - we collect and bring your vehicle to the depot for you before tranporting to the final depot.

Depot to Door - you drop off at our depot and we deliver to your door from the final depot.

Door to Door - we collect and take your car to our depot, then transport it to the final depot before delivereing it to your door.

THIS IS A HIGH VOLUME INDUSTRY AND MANY FACTORS EFFECT THE TRANSIT TIMES DAY TO DAY.

EXAMPLES DEALER SPECIAL OFFERS, END OF YEAR ROLL OUTS, SEASONSAL PEAKS, WEATHER, BREAKDOWNS ETC.

The above are ESTIMATES only in business days based on depot to depot movements and for fully running

and empty vehicles. Vehicles that are non standard or require specialised transport or contain possessions will take longer

DO NOT plan trips, holidays, work, meetings around our estimated transit times.

We DO NOT and CANNOT guarantee transit times.

Please refer to our terms and conditions clause (4) in particular.

Business days are Monday to Fridays and exclude public holidays in local states that the vehicle is travelling through.

Add extra days (generally 3-5 business days) each end for metro collections and deliveries.

Add at least 4-6 extra business days each end for regional collections and deliveries.

Transit times are calculated from the business day after the car is dropped off/collected, not from the time you book.

Vehicles with possessions and/or non-running vehicles

Vehicles with possessions and/or non running vehicles have different transit estimates than those above. As an example Melbourne to Perth will be 5 business days extra for the basic depot to depot service.
