    Well toll transport whose vehicle transport Dept comes under the name prixcar emailed a quote for $1800 in an open carrier. I applied online and had to put in year of car. When I called them they then said no they don't carry cars pre 1985 unless in an enclosed truck with a cost of $4700. Wtf? Seriously? Does everyone agree that's over the top!!!

    National car removals (which are apparently a broker) are the only ones I have found that were prepared to put in writing that they will transport with vehicle facing forward so I guess that's my best bet? Reasonable approx $1300 Depot to depot. (CEVA just said we can't confirm that ask driver on the day. There's going to be lotsa drivers?? )

    Provided I ask seller to strap roof down as Col suggested am I likely to get my kombi safe and sound unscathed? What ya think?

    I also got a quote closed in transport from Alan's unique car carriers again high $4k.

    I'm waiting on closed in quote from national car removals... But I'm not feeling too hopeful

    The $4k quotes are plain ripoff in my view.
    For luxury cars.
    Most cars come thru ok so just have to do best homework then hope.

    As long as roof securely strapped and full cover insurance from Shannon's you should be covered as best as can be expected as long as minimum of negative feedback on whoever you choose.

    Maybe run it past Shannon's and RACQ for preferred carriers. ?

    Good morning! I'd be lost without you all! So wondering if anyone knows how I go about registering a van from wa in qld. I'm assuming there's more to it than just going to qld transport. The seller has said that he lodged wa change of ownership forms in wa yesty and was told he was supposed to take plates off and might get fined? I don't get it? Van registered til June 2020. I'm confused... Van must still be legal to drive in qld on wa plates yea?

    If owner was to cancel rego he would need to hand plates in but i dont know what he's up to....but more importantly register now for rehearsals as a "Gunja Faerie" in the street parade at Nimbin "Mardi Grass" after our convoy through the main street...

    As you know every states requirements are different.What I thing has happened is when the previous owner has put the paper work in to the road authority's in WA he/she is deregistering the vehicle in WA as it is being or will be transferred to you,which is of another state.So as this happened they require the plates to be handed in as they deregister the vehicle. Haven't seen a photo of the car to know if any modifications have been done to whether it needs engineering in QLD. Once the car is home ,best bet is go see some one that does rego checks to see what is or might be required to get it registered in QLD. In NSW you would need a Blue slip so what the equivalent of that form is in QLD I don't know. I'm sure some one from KC from QLD will enlighten you further.

    The vehicle was advertised/sold registered.
    You need it registered to be able to drive it around to complete checks and certification in Qld.
    Inspection requirements are harder on an unregistered vehicle.
    The registration gets cancelled when you change rego in Qld and plates sent back at that point.
    Technically you have 2 weeks ( need to check) to effect transfer but I have never had an issue being overtime slightly.
    You cannot do transfer in that timeframe anyway due to transport time plus certification requirements and Xmas closures.

    Check with the salvage mob doing your roadworthy etc about registration timeframe under the circumstances.

    WA vehicle transfer is pretty straight forward - you can do it online, just put in the new owners DL. No need to hand plates in unless he's trying to get a refund on rego?
