They were great in every way.
We needed to ship our car from Melbourne to Brisbane because we couldn't drive due to border closures. We went to Darwin to do the mandatory quarantine then to Brisbane. They delivered the car in less than a week and were really helpful during the whole process. I highly recommend these guys!
NOTHING to complain about!
Was a bit worried about shipping my car from Perth to Melbourne reading some of these reviews however I had nothing but a great experience with this company. Reasonably priced at $782 for the trip INCLUDING stuff inside the car as well which is rare and one of the only transport places who offer some sort of warranty on your car! I thought it couldn't get any better and was too good to be true ! The ETA was 15-20 working days and came in 12. Replied to emails quick with all my questions and car came with no starches or dents at all just a bit dirty as expected. Overall great experience differently would recommend shipping your car with this company!
Fast transport from Adelaide to Sydney
Estimated transport time was 9 working days, but the car was ready for collection 3 working days after the car was dropped off. The actual pickup at the Seven Hills (Sydney) depot was quick and hassle free. Condition of the car was as per the condition report.

Review collected in partnership with SMB Australia Car Transport
Outstanding service from Queensland to Perth the car arrived earlier then expected. Highly recommend using this service. Picking up the car was made easy by a phone call saying your vehicle is ready. Would use again
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.
No Stress and Lovely Service
I needed to get my car back to WA from Melbourne ASAP and was in a highly stressful, emotional position. SMB was AMAZING with their service! It was such a relief. I had tried all day on the Friday to get a quote from so many companies. Moving Cars was horrible with their service and delayed any communication the entire day and then went home for the weekend, they then were very rude and aggressive on the Monday with their reply. After the Moving Cars experience I am beyond grateful for this experience after a really rough 4 weeks previously.
S...MB had booked my car in and confirmed a drop off for the following day at the depot within 2 hours of enquiring! They had given me a realistic time frame of 16 business days. My car got to Perth from Melb in 2 weeks including the weekends. The price was cheaper, and my car arrived with no issues, no scratches, started perfectly and had no marks from tape or anything. The car was dirty from the dirt but I expected that and they had wiped the windows for me anyway as a small favour. The communication from the office workers and picking up and dropping off was so easy and carefree. SMB really helped in a time of need, they were up front about costs, they let me transport my car with belongings in the back for a cheaper price than Moving Cars and much better service, they were so friendly and as a girl in her early 20s it can be intimidating walking into a warehouse with men who may make me feel stupid. They didn't at all! The service was outstanding and they had relieved all stress I had experienced over the past few weeks. Will recommend SMB to anyone who needs a car transported. Obviously some small things can go wrong with transport companies it is just a risk you take when your car is on the nullarbor or a long haul drive. However the guy at the perth warehouse even said to have a look over it and make sure it was all good. Thank you to SMB!
Questions & Answers
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 ...)
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
thanks for that just a little to keen to get it i guess

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
