Shipping a car from Melbourne to Cape Town or Durban
 
Hey guys,

Can anyone recommend a cheap way of transporting a vehicle (car, not bike) from Melbourne to South Africa?

Any contacts and/or indication of costs involved would be very gratefully received. I'd be looking to transport the vehicle around September/October 2010.

Cheers!

That will be a difficult route - there is next to no direct traffic from Australia to South Africa for RoRo or containers. The route will be Melbourne to Singapore - trans ship in Singapore for an East Coast African ship maybe via India or the Gulf States - maybe trans ship in the Gulf as well.

Any competent shipping company in Melbourne can help - Yellow Pages for a lot of quotes. I'd have expected a US$4,500 to US$5,500 mark - but dont hold me too that.

You may not get a quote to cover port/stevedores charges in SA as this is usually paid by you on retrieving the vehicle in local currency. You need to get some idea of this - as some shippers get really stuck into you on port charges - it can make the cheapest quote the most expensive.

Try these guys,, they were very helpful and good to deal with. I shipped a bike from Melb to KL with them but they may be able to help with a car.
