Freight from QLD to SA

Looking for recommendations, need to freight 4 wheels & tyres from Hervey Bay QLD to SA. Have checked out e-go couriers already.

I recently used Transdirect to courier a 50kg motorbike engine in a crate, door to door, from Nowra to Adelaide and it cost me $137. Delivery was fast and I was very happy with the service.

Cheers, have just checked them out. $250 seems pretty good for 4 loose wheels.

Try gumtree for furniture removalist backloads.
I just brought a new Fortuner bullbar from Hornsby to Buderim for $150.
He was on his way home to Townsville.
He will give me a call when he goes to adelaide and will take an F100 steering column over to my brother for $50.

That's a good deal!
I just booked BHF Couriers, door to door for $218 with $1,000 insurance cover was pretty good I thought.

Search the removalist backloading ads  where the parts are.
My bullbar was in Hornsby and when i searched sydney i found 2 in Parramatta looking for backloads north.
1 was going home to the Gold Coast, but my bloke was heading back to Townsville, so he picked up the bullbar at 10am on Sunday and i met him at 9.30pm Sunday at the Ettamogah Pub, just north of the Caloundra turnoff, where we transferred it to my trailer. He said they would be home for breakfast.
He might use his $150 to buy a new logbook and a watch :lmao: :lmao:

My wheels turned up yesterday. Was told 7 to 10 working days, took 5. The sender wrapped them well & arrived with no damage.

Highly recommend BHF Couriers to anyone.
