Wanted: transport from Teralba to gold coast


I need to move a T3 from Ben Durie Automotive in Teralba (near newcastle) to Helensvale on the gold coast as soon as possible. Any suggestions from people that have used Toll or TNT car carriers would be appreciated. Thanks

is it driveable ? I've used TNT several times and have been very happy with price and service, but the vehicle needs to be able to start,move and have brakes.:tu:

If you care about the car, I wouldn't use Toll.

Several examples I know of:
- I personally had them ship a brand new car from Sydney to Perth, and on top of the 2 week delay they also managed to impale the front onto the towbar of another car. Sure - accidents can happen, even to my 13hr old baby - but the almost 12 months of back-and-forth to get them to repair it properly I thought was a bit over the top
- a friend had her '65 beetle shipped from Sydney to Brisbane, and they not only managed to snap the key off in the ignition and then wreck the barrel hotwiring it, she also had all sorts of hassles getting a fluid spill on the front bonnet reparied that came from a car riding above ... the attitude seemed to be "it's only an old Beetle"
- one of the guys in my club had a beetle shipped from Brisbane to near Alice Springs, several weeks worth of delays and from memory some minor paint damage also
