Does anyone have experience in getting a 4wd and camper trailer transported to Broome by truck? I am trying to track down companies and prices.
cheers.

It will probably cost you an arm and a leg. I notice that hire camper companys offer the fuel costs or part thereof for people to ferry their campers.
You may like to consider that option. But for goodness sake get references and comprehensive insurance.
Backloading from Broome would be far easier if you only want to drive one way.

Patricks, Auto Trans, they all freight up here.

Plus there are others that carry general freight that can carry vehicles.

I had mine delivered up here 1 year ago and it cost $900. Thats vehicle only, and the price was going up by $200 the next week.

A local company that services the Oil and Gas industry also do it if you ring and ask. They charge about $600 for vehicle and camper wouldnt be much more as they usually come back half empty anyway.

The company is Oilfield Transport Company located on Port Drive, and there yard in Perth is in Upper Swan. Good blokes to deal with, just ask about insurance and stuff as i dont think its covered.

If you want to save money avoid the car carriers. Try some of the general freight / logistics companies such as Nexus, N & L Transport, Northline etc.

I freighted a camper from Karratha to Perth last year using Northline for $500.

Good luck.

I used Pacific Transport to transport a camper trailer from Perth to Derby last year. It cost $500.

Sorry, northwards will likely cost you far more, it's the backload south that's generally cheap. The old supply v demand.

There's a chance that I could assist driving the gear as far as Karratha, depends on timing and not sure if that's much help to you anyway.

Cheers,
Will.
