Specialised Shipping

In recent years Colless Young has been handling specialised shipping for individuals and organisations bringing Caravans, Motor Homes, Motor Vehicles and Trailers importing / Exporting to / from Australia and all over the world including the United Kingdom, USA, and New Zealand.

We offer transport by Airfreight, Containerised Sea freight and Roll-On Roll-Off vessels. Ro-Ro to / from some ports is usually best suited for larger vehicles that cannot fit into a container. Airfreight can be expensive, but suitable for the urgent shipping of high-end vehicles.

We also regularly ship Boats and Jet Skis. We can safely pack and stow small boats and jet skis (with or without trailers) into containers, while we utilise roll-on, roll-off and other methods for the larger watercraft.

Containerisation of vehicles is often the fastest and most economical way to ship your car or motorbike, and it doesn’t need to be a full container-load (FCL). We offer LCL consolidation services from the West Coast USA and can arrange collection from any corner of mainland USA. We load your vehicle into the container along with other shippers’ cargo which will reduce the cost, while giving added protection.

Colless Young specialised shipping services can also assist with clearance through customs and quarantine in Australia. Vehicle Import Approvals (VIA) are required for most types of conveyances. If you are permanently importing a vehicle, a Customs Entry must be lodged, accompanied by your VIA. People who visit Australia on a temporary basis may import their own vehicle duty-free, if it is to be re-exported again, using a Carnet document. Contact us to discuss your particular circumstances.
