WHAT VEHICLES MAY BE WORTHWHILE TAKING TO AUSTRALIA
The difference between the buying and selling prices of cars in Australia can be as much as 25% e.g. a car that can be purchased from a dealer for $20,000 is only worth about $15,000 if you were selling the same vehicle. Japanese and Korean cars are sold in Australia at keen prices to compete with the locally assembled Fords and Holdens. Ford models in Australia can be completely different to the Ford models sold in the UK. Rust-free ‘prestige cars’ e.g. Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Lotus, Mercedes Benz, Porsche, Saab and Volvo manufactured in the mid to late 2000s with a current UK value of between £8,000 and £15,000 and which are still in good condition, are financially most worthwhile considering for shipping as are many European models of car that have depreciated significantly in the UK. The most common shipping makes apart from the ‘prestige’ models are Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Citroen, Peugeot and Renault. Makes that are not normally shipped are Fiat, Honda, Hyundai, Isuzu, Kia, Lexus, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Rover, Seat, Subaru, Suzuki and Toyota. Almost all small-engined (less than 1600cc) vehicles from any manufacturer are not normally shipped.
