Hello people,

I have just bought a 4wd and need to transport it from Newcastle to Cairns. Would it be better to go with the big companies or can I get equal service from small companies as well? It would be great to hear of your opinions and experiences if any?

Cheers.

Have you tried shipping it??

It may be quicker

Yeah shipping sounds good especially with the Bruce Hwy blocked at the moment. I'll look into that option definately.

Thanks.

But having thought about it, it might not be viable because all of the shipping is being used to ship supplies for Cairns at the moment Woolworths and the like are probably fully booking space. I'll still check it out though. I heard that in order to transport cars on trains you have top be a passenger. Maybe they don't supply loading and unloading service, ie do it youself.

For Rail, you only have to be a passenger for vehicles that have possessions in them, I think.

Goldsahara,
Just a heads up about rail.
There could be a drivers strike this week coming. About overtime I'm led to believe.
Shhh, Secret Squirrel.

Ahhh, thanks for the quiet tip Jon. With the way things are going I might have to get it towed by Jetstar. I just might have to be patient and wait for the flooding to subside.

Sometimes things come at the wrong time. We just have to take things as they come.
If its adverted, all is good.
