confused Need help re: car transport

Not sure if this is in the right thread or not but I'll give it a go anyway.

I have a coupe in Coffs Harbour that I need to get to Sydney. The options are Trailer or Freight. Does anyone know of any companies that do this.
If its a Trailer it would have to be one way (coffs pickup, and drop off in sydney).

Also the car is driveable but is out of rego and will need a blue slip.

Thanks in advance fellas.

Re: Need help re: car transport

Why not contact the RTA to see if you can get a one way permit to drive it?

Re: Need help re: car transport

I thought about the idea of flying up and getting it rego'ed up there (cheaper due to country location) but it has been sitting around the yard for about a year. Although it is ok to drive it would need a once over before rego and I dont like the idea of its first trip after over a year is a 6 hour drive. I figured if I broke down I would need a tow/trailer/freight to pick it up and in the long run it would cost a hell of alot more.

I have spoken to U-Haul about a car trailer pickup from Coffs Harbour and drop off in Sydney, they quoted $280 plus $100 deposit. I think thats the option I'm going with. Unless anyone knows of anything cheaper or easier.

Cheers

Re: Need help re: car transport

go through the yellow pages for a freight company, like TNT...
if the car is drivable, should not be too expensive when compared to $280 for the trailer - plus petrol, etc.

Re: Need help re: car transport

dude, have a look HERE

my mate looked into getting his car from moss vale to coffs last year and it was cheaper to get a trailer and go pick it up, but from coffs to sydney might be cheaper.
