Mate, first thing first, how are you entirely sure that this car in NSW your after is really the car you like ie you can't see or test drive the car. Unless you have a relative or good friend living in NSW to give you a guarentee.
As to actual transporting i'm sure there are others here who can advise on what company to use, cost etc etc.

Just my suggestion.

Transporting cars across the country is a tricky thing. No matter how you go about it, do expect some damage to occur.

Train is the best way as long as it is covered. Bringing it over by truck shakes the sh!t of it.

Why would you buy in NSW anyway? I'd be thinking long and hard if it was from a dealer or someone you don't know. What if something goes wrong with it? who will do the work if it's under warranty?

Please have a good think about this!

On car transport one thing to consider is try the shipping co's..
Train would be o/k too atleast they go there anyway under cover container..I guess Ford and other co's use train as well..To W.A..

if you had to go this route, train would be the best. i also agree with the other guys about driving the cars. trust is another thing. for example, you may fancy an evo 5 or whatever, and recieve either nothing (long after you have paid) or some ordinary shitbox.

also, if you are getting finance for the car, it could be tricky. the big 4 may be able to help, but a state based financial institution wouldnt touch the deal with a bargepole as they need to register a mortgage over the vehicle and are supposed to view the car as well.

i would really think seriously about this one...

Why not fly over and drive it back?

That way you get to look at it, drive it, etc. before committing. And I'm sure it would be cheaper and safer than putting it on a train/truck.

TNT are a company we've used at work to ship cars around Australia. To give you an idea on price we got a Landcruiser shipped from Canberra to Perth just under a year ago at a cost of $1,228.15 (inc GST).
