Car to Australia

We ship weekly to all main Australian ports including Sydney, Melbourne, Fremantle, Brisbane and Adelaide.

Safe vehicles reduce road trauma and Australia’s vehicle fleet is among the safest in the world. This is why exporting a car to Australia can be quite complex, with many rules and regulations. It also involves a great deal of paperwork. As our automotive department specialise in privately imported and exported vehicles, we know how to get optimal results from both a price perspective and a service outcome.
