Buying a vehicle interstate from Perth
Not located in Perth? No problem.
Carz4u can arrange vehicle transport from Perth to anywhere in
Australia. This is a great option if you have spotted one of our
vehicles which is cheaper than you can find in your own state or
territory. Our team has helped arrange the transport of hundreds or cars
from Perth across Australia.
Transport costs are an expense for the buyer of the vehicle. Give us a call and we will give you a competitive quote right away.
Carz4u has relationships with many transport companies and passes our
trade rates directly on to our clients.
Delivery times will range depending on where the vehicle is heading, the average is about 2 weeks however, due to COVID, flooding, and other transport delays, you should now allow 5-6 weeks for transport from Perth to Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane.
If you are planning on purchasing a vehicle from us without seeing it in person, we strongly suggest you arrange an independent inspection. We display high-resolution images of our cars on our website, but for your peace of mind insist that someone can view the car on your behalf.
There are plenty of third-party inspection services available and the cost will range from $200-$350. Inspections will normally include a mechanical and cosmetic check provided to you in a report. It is a small price to pay for your peace of mind.
Registration and Stamp Duty
If you are registering the vehicle in a state or territory other than WA, the plates will need to be removed and handed back to the WA Department of Transport. Then you will need to register the vehicle in your state and receive your new plates. Depending on where you are registering your vehicle, the car may need to undergo a vehicle safety check to be able to be registered, but you should check this with the relevant department in your state.
The stamp duty will also be payable to the state or territory where you will register the vehicle.
Please see below for a list of answers to common questions. If you cannot find the answer here please feel free to give us a call.
