Your only option would be to freight it over.

Get a quote, you might find it would be worthwhile to drive up and pick it up.

Agree, do a comparo- ferry trip with car+ trlr vs freight company. don't think ferry operator will take a trailer on its own for you as its a drive-on-off system (Ive been on it x 2) but you could always ask them. its also possible that Vic based trucking/transport services may fit it in with a load for you-your trlr on a tray back/semi or something... a part of there regular Tassie runs. do a ring around of transport companies for that idea. you will need to deliver and pick up at each end from a depot somehow. saw several trucks, etc.. on the ferry on our trip. there are also c/van and boat delivery ( tow) service firms, they may do for you ? ring around.
good luck.

On the Spirit without car it's not subsidised and cost as freight is $1445,
with Searoad transport it's $990.
I expect Toll to be up around a grand also.
Might have to buy a sh#t heap in melboune and do a day crossing on the spirit at around $500. Opportunity there for someone to start a business towing vans across for people.

What about someone who lives in Tassie and is coming back across, could they bring it back for you?

You could offer to pay half the fare that way it will be cheaper for both of you.

Decided to take my own vehicle over and drag the van back, cheapest in the long run. Still believe there must be an opportunity for a person with a capable 4x4 to pick up and deliver trailers or vans to tas or vic.
