Car shipping to Australia does not have to be difficult. You will need to make sure that you take the proper precautions and follow the correct steps to make sure you don’t get caught up in the red tape with the government of Australia. We are fortunate to have many Australian clients and have had the privilege of shipping many cars to Australia from the US for them (many have shipped multiple times with us!).
We set up the information on this page mainly for those who are exporting their vehicles from the United States to destinations in AU. To make the entire process easier be sure to gather as much specific information as possible. You will want to have the exact year, make and model of the vehicle. Please be sure to include any modifications that have been done to the vehicle. This includes anything that may have made the vehicle taller, wider, longer or heavier. We will also need to know if the vehicle is in running condition and if there is a lienholder or a loan on the vehicle. Be sure to have as much specific information about where the vehicle is currently located and the desired destination port.
The cost for car shipping to Australia can vary greatly depending on this information so take your time and gather as much accurate info as possible before inquiring about your overseas shipment.
The folks who accept or deny the approval for your vehicle to be imported is the Australian Government’s Department of Infrastructure and Transport. Be sure to read through their information especially the sections on Temporary Vehicle Import, Special Vehicle Import and Permanent Vehicle Import.
There is a ton of information on this site. General information on importing a car into Australia can be found here http://www.infrastructure.gov.au/vehicles/imports/ with more specific information about individuals importing vehicles here http://www.infrastructure.gov.au/vehicles/imports/import_options/index.aspx.
These regulations are subject to change so be sure to go over the requirements with your international shipping coordinator here at Ship Your Car Now. We look forward to hearing from you soon! Click on the link at the top of the page to get started or feel free to call us any time.
