Ship Vehicles to Australia

Shipping a vehicle to Australia is tricky and challenging. North America and Australia are very far away from each other and there’s a huge stretch of dangerous ocean that needs to be covered. That’s why it’s important to hire a reliable international shipping company with experience and knowledge about the whole process, from end to end.

Viamar Scilla is the most trusted name when it comes to shipping vehicles globally. Our fast car shipping service to Australia includes several prominent ports including Adelaide, Fremantle, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney. Our affordable rates and well-established connections have made us the go-to international auto transport company in Canada. We ensure a smooth shipping process and timely delivery of your vehicle to Australia.

Our highly trained logistics professionals not only help you select a suitable shipping method for your car, truck or other heavy equipment but also complete all customs formalities, including the bill of lading. We’re aware of Australia’s strict quarantine regulations and make sure your vehicle abides by them before shipment to avoid legal issues. Put your trust in our auto transport services to get your vehicle delivered to Australia conveniently.

Types of Vehicles We Ship to Australia

Viamar Scilla is a long-established shipping company. We specialize in the transport of a wide variety of vehicles including luxury and vintage cars, trucks, motorcycles, RVs, motorhomes, boats, jet skis, golf carts and all-terrain vehicles. With our highly experienced staff, we provide hassle-free and streamlined shipping services at competitive rates.

When shipping vehicles to Australia, we make sure they’re factory clean, with no biological material or dirt on them. This process is necessary in order to follow Australia’s strict quarantine regulations and avoid the vehicle being confiscated on arrival for failing its quarantine inspection. It’s advised that customers do their own research and be aware of these issues so as to prevent any unpleasant complications during shipping.

Apart from taking care of the packing and loading of your vehicles, we also update you regarding your shipment by sharing the tracking details. When you entrust us with your cars, trucks or boats, rest assured that we understand the sentimental and monetary value of your vehicle and will keep it in good shape during shipment.


We provide hassle-free shipping services without compromising the safety and security of your luxury or vintage car.

RORO Shipping

RORO shipping is considered the easiest way to ship a vehicle worldwide. As the name suggests, the vehicles are ‘rolled on’ the specially designed vessel at the port of loading and ‘rolled off’ again at destination. Simply put, the vehicles are driven onto the ship instead of being lifted by crane.

RORO shipping can also be used to transport vehicles without wheels such as snowmobiles, boats and heavy plant equipment. This is a viable method of ocean freight transport involving oversized vehicles that don’t fit in standard containers.

If you’ve decided to use RORO to ship your commercial or personal vehicles, let Viamar Scilla do it. We ensure the safe handling and delivery of all shipments while keeping them in good shape.

Full Container Load

The Full Container Load (FCL) shipping provided by Viamar is a dependable and cost-effective way to transport vehicles from door to door globally. This method offers more flexibility and control as we can send the container to your location for loading and then seal it before shipping.

Our FCL services include secure and fully insured warehousing of your shipment(s), full documentation and paperwork (with no hidden charges), customs clearance and brokerage, and marine insurance. Also, we have different ocean freight containers in various sizes to provide flexible shipping services depending on the goods you want to ship.

When you entrust Viamar with the transportation of your valuable vehicles, rest assured that you’ll get budget-friendly and convenient shipping services. Feel free to contact our team to request a quote.

Consolidated/Shared Container

Consolidated (or shared) containers are the preferred choice for transporting smaller shipments. Our Consolidated Container services to major destinations worldwide provide our customers with the flexibility to ship their goods without booking the entire container; instead, they share the space with other shippers.

This type of ocean freight forwarding service is affordable without compromising on timeliness and safety. Consolidated container services reduce transportation costs compared to that of booking a full container or using air freight.

With our team of experienced logistics professionals, we take care of your consolidated shipping requirements while guaranteeing customer satisfaction. We strive to tailor our international auto transport solutions to your processes and needs to provide best-in-class ocean freight forwarding services.

Shipping Insurance

Viamar Scilla offers shipping insurance to provide coverage against loss and damage in transit, thus allowing our customers to offset all or part of any monetary loss. We’re authorized to prepare cargo marine insurance certificates through Lloyd’s of London. This added protection benefits shippers in several ways. Here’s why you should purchase shipping insurance:

  • It gives you peace of mind.
  • It minimizes risk.
  • It covers financial losses.
  • It’s available at minimal rates.

This depends on several factors.

International transport times vary depending on several factors such as the type of shipping method chosen, the time of year, the number of goods being transported and unavoidable delays such as technical issues.

There are a few factors that are taken into account.

When calculating the cost of car shipping to Australia, factors taken into account include the mileage between the origin and destination, the type and condition of vehicle being shipped, the type of shipping method (FCL is more expensive than LCL) and the time of booking.

Q4. What details do I need to give to book a shipment?
