Frequently asked questions

Should I transport my car or should I drive it?

A common dilemma facing our customers is whether or not vehicle transport is cost effective. Here are some of the many reasons our customers choose to use vehicle transport.

Do you deliver door to door?

Yes. Door to door can be arranged in most circumstances, however, many 
residential streets are inaccessible for a semi-trailer due to narrow streets, overhanging trees, traffic islands, roundabouts and council restrictions. If the customer is able to meet the truck at a close proximity in these situations, it would be appreciated. A small truck may be used if required at an additional cost.

What are my payment options?

EFT, Company cheque, Credit / Debit card. All transport must be paid at the time of Booking.        .

Can I leave personal effects in the car?

Yes. Conditions do apply.

  • There will be a fee attached for personal belongings stored and carried within the vehicle.
  • No more then 150kg.
  • The contents MUST not exceed window height.
  • The driver must also be able to move the driver's seat completely backwards.
  • No insurance cover is offered on any personal effects. Please contact our office for further details
  • Exceeding the personal effects guidelines will result in your vehicle insurance being completely voided or decline of transportation will be discussed as per level of exceeding requirements outlined.
