International Car Transport & Shipping Services

Premiere vehicle shipping from Australia: have your vehicle ready to use at your new home.

International vehicle shipping services to New Zealand and the United Kingdom

The dramatic depreciation in value of most vehicles during the first 3 years after purchase, means you may wish to ship your car along with your personal effects and furniture. The Australian standards for motor vehicle registration are very similar to New Zealand and United Kingdom standards, so most vehicles can be legally imported to these two markets without requiring modifications. There are also concessionary customs entry exemptions available in the UK and New Zealand which may make shipping a financially viable decision.

Pre-shipment vehicle preparation

Receival of your vehicle at any of our Crown Relocations branch network depots around Australia. Completion of a detailed vehicle condition report and removal of licence plates.
