Noah P.
Noah P.asked

So far I am unhappy with SMB service. They should know that there is a holiday (Easter) during the process. I made 3 phone calls before Easter and asking when will my car arrive to Darwin from Melbourne and they said it would the there on 06/04 in the first call and then the end of 6th week and then 12/04 and today 06/04, they said it would arrive at the end of next week (16/04). The reason for these delay is because of Easter holiday!!! I have read all the review from the top and feel like they did this with more than 70% customers here. I will wait until my car come to officially write a review about thier servicw as one of the big issues here with them is they damaged customer car (I hope it will not happen to me but ...)

Honestly Anthony, I have transported many cars with SMB, and I never needed to track my cars because it didn't make any difference in terms if delivery time. SMB is slow but cheap, they also transport non-running cars. Their estimated time is always correct if they said 4 weeks it will be 4 weeks knowing that the car still in depot or transit isn't important for me.
If you need urgent transport they are not your best option.
I hope this helps
Thanks

Car transport from Tasmania to Darwin?

I would not use them again. My car was two weeks late, with no communication from them whatsoever. My hat was also stolen from my car, with them not caring one iota

Hi Sam,

Sorry to hear about that!
I had the same problem. They don't care at all.
They promised to deliver in 10 business days. The car was delivered almost a month after it was dropped off.
I couldn't do anything as well. Just kept calling to them...

Sit down and wait cause your car will be in their depot for a month before they even load the truck with it....

Hi, the price is dependent on the dimensions of the trailer, what type of trailer and where exactly it was going from and going too. Feel free to contact us on 1300 362 085 or smb@smbaustralia.com.au with further info. Thanks, SMB

Dave
Daveasked

I currently have a classic vehicle booked with SMB to travel from Sydney to Darwin.
My booking # is C746684
Upon reading the reviews on “Damage” to vehicles I have Some concerns, specifically as the transfer is via Adelaide. The value on my particular vehicle is the original condition of the car. Any potential repairs required to the original condition will de value the vehicle considerably.
If you do not believe you can take ownership of the integrity of the quality of service and an undertaking of no damage to the vehicle I will take the opportunity to look for an alternative carrier.
If you do not reply to my request I will take it that you accept responsibility to deliver my vehicle in as received condition.
Yours faithfully
David Hague

Thank you for your enquiry,

Unfortunately we don’t do local movements in Brisbane, i can recommend Border Towing - 1300 679 869
if you give them a call they may be able to assist.

I have written to ACCC who have noted the complaint and referred me to the Office of Fair Trading.
I am currently dealing with me. I suggest you do the same.
