Freight Around Australia for parts!
Posted 29 November 2005 - 06:26 PM
Roadknight was good enough to put us on to a company that is willing to take one off, odd shaped and general freight all around australia.
They have depots in all major capitals, and hopefully that info can be puyt into here. Apparently they are able to deal with customers like ourselves where most other frieght companies deal directly with Business.
Call Concord Park Transport. 03 93682000
They are on Dohertys Road, Laverton Nth.
If you have any other info on who to use to freight parts around, please PM me, and i'll add them here!

There you go people.. a Freight company that is willing to help the little guys!

Advertised prices are.
Over 20kg $5.00 for every 5kg
These guys put the freight on the national bus/coach system, so they go just about everywhere. I used them to transport a complete drum kit, cymbals and all Shepperton to Cairns, when no one else would touch it.

However, as I'm heading to Adelaide June 16 and Sydney in early October, cheap rates apply for those trips.

I need to get the pallet, I do the complete packaging. When I asked if there is any insurance offered, the reply was a flat no. Ship at your risk, they take no responsibility. Thats whaen he asked if I was a business or private, whan I said private he tried to fob me off to a furniture removalist (must look into that now).
I explained that they were recommended from this website, and my understanding based on the initial post here is that they would help out. Apparantly not.
Tiny, just thought I would add this post to reflect my dealings with them.

From other's experience they've been helpful, but possibly their business has changed and are no longer doing private work! I cant say.
Bit of a shame really! Transport is one of the more difficult things to organise at a decent rate!

Very good to deal with.
4 wheels with tyres from Melb to Central QLD in 4 working days for $160.

I will look into this and find out why.
As for the insurance side, then sorry we can't help as most general freight companies don't offer this as it is fairly expensive.

I've been PMd by a member who've used "VICFAST" to move parts around. His experience has been great judging by his posts to me, and to the best of lmy knowledge Vicfast deal with the public and not just businesses.
Give Vicfast a go.. they might be able to help!
Cheers and thanks to the member that told me about it!
