Why Using a Car Transportation Company is a Good Idea

When moving a vehicle can be as simple as driving it from one place to another, why would going with a car transportation company be a good idea? Afterall,  you bought your car for one purpose in the first place - to drive it! Why would you spend money to move your car when it is perfectly capable of being driven to nearly any destination in Australia? Regardless of whether or not you are transporting your vehicle interstate.


There are many reasons why using a vehicle transportation service is a logical, and, in many instances, a better decision than driving it yourself to your final destination. In this article, we’ll unpack the benefits of going with the professionals when moving your car across long distances.


You’ll Reduce Fuel Expenses

With fuel prices higher than ever, the expense of driving a car across Australia on your own can be huge.  Footing the bill at the pump for everyday driving is one thing, but on a trip of a few hundred kilometres or more, this cost can be immensely draining. Shipping your car may save you money when compared to filling up and driving it yourself, so it’s best to check before committing yourself to going it on your own.


Car transport companies will usually ship multiple cars to the same destination. This means that the cost of fuelling and using the transport service provider will be divided among many customers. This lowers the price and passes the savings on to you, the customer.


It’s a Safer Option

Not everyone is ready for a long-haul drive, especially on Australian roads. Tackling a long journey on your own requires thorough driving experience, knowledge and preparation. It’s not a task that just anyone can handle at the drop of a hat. 


Going with a professional driver can mitigate that risk that comes with having to drive a vehicle across a long distance, particularly for inexperienced drivers. Car transport companies use large, and in some instances, enclosed trucks to transport vehicles which are much less susceptible to accidents and damage.


Driving long distances will increase your chance of damage to your car through the added stress of continuous driving.  There is also the added risk of an accident, with this increased chance of this happening hanging over your head can be enough for some vehicle owners to go with car-carrying services.


It Will Save You Time and Kilometers

When you ship your car, you’ll also save hours, maybe even days, of time!


Consider the thought of driving your car across the country; it could take you several days to move a car from Perth to Brisbane or Perth to Sydney, time which could be spent on holiday, moving into a new home, or spent with your family.


Not to mention that you would add over 4,000 Kilometres to your car, lowering the resale value and requiring an extra oil change to boot. If somebody else is moving your car for you, it frees up your time so that you can take care of the most important issues that require your immediate attention.


When you use a vehicle transport service, you are not just paying for a service. The benefits of using a car transport company will outweigh the costs and allow you free time and the opportunity to have your vehicle available wherever you may be going.


You’re paying for peace of mind.
