Question Should we transport our car?

Hi All,

It has been suggested that we take my wifes car with us when we migrate. Her car is only 3 years old, with low mileage and is in almost immaculate condition.

Has anybody transported (or considered transporting) their car with all their furniture and worldly goods?
I suppose the question is, is it more hassle to try and sell or more costly to take?

What would you recommend?

It must be expensive, the better option is to sell that car and buy another in Stralyer

Unless it is something collectable that could be worth more here then I see it as a hassle unless of-course here is a personal attachment like your wife gave birth to you first-born in it. My advice then would be the same...yuk sell that sucker.

Cars are expensive in Oz. You better check the costs for transport, and how much a similar car would cost in Au. There are some import taxes, but if you have owned the car for more than one year, you may be excepted.
