Hey i just won an AU XR6 engine off of ebay for $750 its in queensland at the moment.. i was just informed today that it will cost me $670 dollars to get it over to me in W.A :shock:

Does anyone on here know of any freight mobs that may be able to do it cheaper..

Thanks,
Brad.

I bought my AU motor from the same place, I got someone to pick it up for me - and I'm drivng up there to put it in next week.
New motor + holiday in QLD all in one :lol:

I guess WA is a bit far though...

That is pretty exy. It only cost $400 to get an entire car sent from Sydney to Port Pirie (roughly 3 hours north of Adeliade), and only $600.00 to get another car sent from Sydney to Hobart (and that's gotta go over water). I definately would of thought you could get it done cheaper!

Ring around removalists that go interstate in WA and see if you can throw it on as a back load. I deal with freight companies every day and they can be really expensive. I got a quote today to send a 4kg bundle (6.5m long) on our usual freight company and they quoted $135 to get it 200kms up the road.
Just shop around and you may be surprised with what you will find.
