Have you been thinking about emigrating to Australia, but just not sure if it's worth the hassle and expense or taking your car with you? Here are five good reasons why shipping your car to Australia is well worth it.
Shipping your car will avoid making a loss from selling.
You will most likely lose a lot of money on the vehicle if you try to sell it before you leave, especially if it's a late model vehicle. There is enough to think about when emigrating without having to make a quick fire sale on your car and losing money.
Shipping your own car will save money, as the Australian car market is expensive.
If you do sell it and then try to replace it in Australia, the same vehicle will often be priced considerably higher in Australia, because of the restrictions on imported cars. Making the local market inflated compared to most counties.
Shipping cars to Australia is a simple process, when using a professional freight forwarder.
The shipping process is very simple despite what you may have heard. The reason it is simple is because we do all the hard work for you. All you have to do is fill out some paperwork, but we supply this to you. There is however one form which you will have to apply yourself and this is the Vehicle Import Approval, which I can also supply to you, I just can't apply for it on your behalf.
Better the devil you know
You know the history of your vehicle, and you know that it's reliable. You will want a reliable vehicle while you are settling in, exploring and enjoying your new life in Australia.
Keep the car you love, whether it's your classic car, or the family wagon
You love your car, that's why you bought in the first place right? Just because you are moving to Australia doesn't mean you have to leave your pride and joy behind. If shipping from a right hand drive country, it's easy, and you can keep on enjoying your special car.
At the end of the day you'll have your own reasons for deciding whether to take your car or not. But if you do decide to take your vehicle you'll be glad you did.
