advice on shipping the car please

    Recommended Posts

    Hi everyone! Need some advice please :)

     

    We are emigrating on the 1st May, can't wait! :D

    We are just pondering over whether to take the car or not. Is anyone familiar with the process and the costs incurred, the car was manufactured in 2004.

     

    Thanks in advance

    Hi

    We have also been looking into this and contacted Mandy who was very helpful. she pointed us in the direction of Cargo-online and they have gave us a full quote. It is quite expensive, ours came in at about £5000. Also I think there is quite a lot of paperwork involved.

     

    We checked out what the car would be worth in Oz, but some people say its difficult to sell a uk car out there. Dont really see why this is, as the spec isn't any different.

     

    Same dilemma as you really. Still thinking on it.
