How long will it take to transport my vehicle?

Transport times can vary depending on distances, specific transport legs, any special requirements you may have and sometimes events that are outside of our control.

Our standard transit days are available when you request a quote. You can also discuss these with a PrixCar Customer Relations Officer by calling 1300 660 616.

Do I need to be present during pickup and delivery of the vehicle?

Generally yes. You, or someone you trust, should be present at both pickup and delivery of your vehicle.

During pick, a vehicle inspection is carried out and signed and the keys handed over to our driver.

The same will happen on delivery of the vehicle.

It’s generally good for someone to check that inspections are carried out to your satisfaction.

How do you transport non-running or damaged vehicles?

Whilst some car transport companies are able to accommodate, PrixCar do not transport non-running or damaged vehicles.

Can I leave personal belongings in my vehicle during transport?

Generally, personal items cannot be left in the vehicle due to safety and warranty reasons.

We seek to be a responsible member of the community and as such places great importance on:

  1. Regulatory responsibilities PrixCar Transport’s trailers are planned and loaded according to the weight and dimensions of the vehicles being transported as required by the relevant State and Federal Guidelines.
  2. OH&S PrixCar Transport seeks to provide a safe workplace for its employees and goods coming loose from vehicles can possibly result in injury or damage.
  3. Community Responsibility PrixCar Transport endeavours at all times to be a responsible member of the community and whilst using our national roadways we operate to minimise risk of injury or damage to other road users – goods coming loose from vehicles can result in injury and damage.
  4. Quarantine All vehicles travelling into WA and Tasmania are subject to quarantine inspection. Any goods left in a vehicle are subject to inspection which causes possible delays and additional charge to our customers.

What warranties does PrixCar provide?

How do we agree on the condition of my vehicle at collection?

As part of your contract with any good car transport company, you will be asked to sign the Transport Contract and Vehicle Condition Report.

A customer service representative will survey your vehicle and note its condition on a vehicle diagram on the contract.

You will then be asked to review and sign the contract agreeing to the condition of your vehicle as noted and that you have read and understand our Vehicle Transport Terms & Conditions.

Can I have my vehicle transported in an enclosed car carrier?

It is possible that, you vehicle may pass through a toll charge point while it is in our care.
