Or have you used any one reliable to move gear interstate.Approx dimensions 135cm, 70cm high and weighs about 180 kgs.A back load would be nice but I dont have any leads on who to contact.Thanks In advance.

Bohaul Express cheapest and fastest east west freightline in OZ

Is this "ex milk vat" a 4WD if not it will be classed as OT....

Those 4x4 milk vats have been around for years, my grand father use to drive one.
I think you left one ( 0) of the weight though.

cheers Shane.

All the backloading goes west to east, you usually have to pay full price for east to west freight.

Try Perth Freight Lines. They're the cheapest I can find.

Talk to Joe.

Cheers,

Jim.

x gazillion.
I used them recently to bring a small f/g camper to Perth.
Prices ranged from $850 down to Perth Freightlines price of $247.
They picked the item up by courier in NSW and I saved a few dollars by going to their yard in Welshpool to pick it up

going back a while but when i wanted some stuff simular size to what you want from adelaide to kalgoorlie i just picked up the local rag as theres usually a few adds in there. A guy with a car and trailor picked the stuff up and delivered to me for a reasnable price. it was fragile stuff too
- so maybe check the paper?

I have tried both Bohaul and Perth frieght lines , they are both around the $640 to $660 (depot to depot) mark if I get it to melbourne first.
Courier cost to melbourne depot quoted by both companies were between $160 to $400 :-(
Then I got onto a Perth based removalist who will pick it up from the VIC country town and drop it at my door in Perth for $550.Guess who gets the job?
That saved money is going to buy a few beers.Thank to every body for your ideas.
