Am interested in having my 4wd transported from Sydney to Alice Springs by truck. Has anyone any experience or comments or idea of suitable companies that can do this ?

Brad. It sounds very expensive. Other options include hiring someone to drive your vehicle, or if you aren't moving there for good, hire a vehicle in AS. As expensive as 4WD hire is (about $150/day) its got to be cheaper than the trucking option (unless you are looking at long term in AS).

Brad, Some years ogo I had the need to get cars from Melb. to Darwin (via A/S) and remember it costing around $1000.00 and as for a suggestion on whom, try Finemores or TDG as a starting point

Have you thought about the Ghan train? Hovever I think it has to be accompanied. Relatively cheap if you have a non sleeper seat.

Many thanks.
I have taken the Ghan with the 4wd before and it was very good, the only problem is that there are severe height restrictions, which meant I couldn't take a roofrack out of Adelaide, and you can't even fit on a 4wd out of Sydney.
