Great to deal with
Had our Isuzu Dmax shipped from Townsville to Port Hedland. These guys were great to deal with, we were even able to load some personal processions in the car. It did take 7 weeks but know others who have waited 6 weeks from Brisbane. All transport seems to be taking longer with COVID restrictions.

DO NOT use this company for any vehicle transport!!!
DO NOT use this company for any vehicle transport!!! SMB do NOT take responsibility for damages they do to your vehicle and their professionalism is non-existent. During a recent transport of my vehicle major damages were done to my vehicle. Both the roof and bumper were damaged. The driver cable tied the bumper back on so I could not see the damage when collecting the vehicle and said nothing during collection so I would sign the consignment slip none the wiser. Once I discovered the damages the following day and asked for it to be further inv...estigated. No response for over two weeks and finally they responded stating that the damage happened during transit but because the vehicle is over 20 years old (a classic, vintage vehicle) its not their problem and wont do anything about the roof nor the bumper. Would never use this company again. Lesson learnt.
Would never use them again !
Gave them a HSV GTS to move from Melbourne to Perth at end November 2018.
I personally dropped the car off to them straight from the paint shop where the car had just had a complete repaint and was in perfect condition.
The car arrived in Perth, 10 days late, with both side skirts smashed to pieces.
Spoke with Andrew Mytkowski (company owner based in Sydney) who accepted responsibility and authorised me to get the damaged fixed and agreed to pay the $2445 bill the following week. That was three weeks ago with no payment being made and now refus...
Lost or stolen tow hitch/towbar.
The tow hitch/ towbar on my brothers car was missing from his vehicle on delivery. SMB kept avoiding calls for days. They sent through a grainy out of focus photo as 'proof' that it was not on the car when they picked it up. Too bad we couldnt see anything on the back of the car to say one way or the other if it was there or not. Quote for car transport from ACT to NT was given as car having one attached. Not happy and will never use this company again and will make sure any friend or contacts know of this situation.
A good job
I was dubious about using SMB as there are mixed review on here, but it ended up being fine. I shipped my car from Melbourne to Perth with items in the car, it cost a little over $1000.
They quoted me 15 days, but it took 3 weeks. I looked on the website and saw that they only move on business days, so it took 15 BUSINESS days which is fine, but they could have been clearer about the time estimate. To pick up in Perth they're only open 12pm-4pm weekdays which is hard if you work office hours.
But all in all, the car arrived, there doesn't appear to be any damage internally or externally, so I am pleased!! In conclusion: I would use SMB again.
Well done SMB transport
Very helpful and was available for me to contact them anytime for updates as my car was delayed. Was very much satisfied with the service and particularly communication about delay and updates about car transport was very satisfying. Was able to get my car to destination in a very good condition.
Questions & Answers
how hard is it to track where my car is I'm not cranky just can't figer out your tracking system HELP please
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

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
