To provide this service safely, we have explicit requirements on what is acceptable and what is not acceptable for travel. Please refer to our Goods in Car Policy brochure which provides details on our car transport service with personal items in the vehicle.

The loading requirements for the goods in car service are strict. They are there as we want to ensure the safe transport of your vehicle. Furthermore, we seek to be a responsible member of the community and as such place great importance on:

  1. Regulatory responsibilities

    PrixCar Transport’s trailers are planned and loaded according to the weight and dimensions of the vehicles being transported as required by the relevant State and Federal Guidelines.

  2. OH&S

    PrixCar Transport seeks to provide a safe workplace for its employees and goods coming loose from vehicles can possibly result in injury or damage.

  3. Community Responsibility

    PrixCar Transport endeavours at all times to be a responsible member of the community and whilst using our national roadways we operate to minimise risk of injury or damage to other road users – goods coming loose from vehicles can result in injury and damage.

  4. Quarantine

    All vehicles travelling into WA and Tasmania are subject to quarantine inspection. Any goods left in a vehicle are subject to inspection which causes possible delays and additional charge to our customers.

Q: How are cars shipped?

Vehicles are transported around Australia by three main transport modes.  They can travel via a truck on a specific car carrying trailer, via car carrying rail services or via a boat.

With each mode of transport, your vehicle will be safely loaded and secured for transportation.

To enable transport across the country, we have a large network of transport depots that vehicles pass through along the way.  It is this National structure and network that gives PrixCar the largest reach in Australia.

Q: How much to deliver a car interstate?

The cost of vehicle transport has many factors, the key factors are the distance travelled, the service area and the size of your vehicle.

Moving a vehicle locally, within the same state, starts from $100.00. Interstate transport as a guide will be around 40 cents per kilometer.

Generally, the further the distance the higher the cost as there is more consumption costs such as fuel and travel time. The vehicle size matters as the larger the vehicle the more space it takes up. The service area can impact price based on its frequency of service. Some remote locations will require dedicated routes which will increase the cost compared to a frequently located area.
