Friend of mine was living in a town called kalgoorlie about 600km east of perth, he wants to go back for residency this time, and has me convinced to at least start with a whv, he said theres no "chevrolet" trucks there.

Anyways, were kinda looking into getting a "cart" to ship 2 trucks in and furniture in. Anyone done this before? Any idea on the cost?

thanks alot, gonna be applying for a visa soon.

forgot to mention that i would think it would be leaving out of Vancouver British Columbia Canada and probably to Perth. Im gonna make some calls to inquire on this, but would like to hear others experiences with doing this, good / bad?

I don't know about cars, but my sister shipped a 1-metre square crate from Auckland to Montreal, and when all was said and done it cost her over $1,500 Canadian and took about 3 months. I believe they either charge you by weight or volume - whichever's greater. I don't know if it would be worth spending all that cash...
