Five of us are preparing a trip around the world -snip-
We're going to travel by car , and we need to send it three times by cargo through the ocean ( RPA - Brasil ) ( USA - Australia ) ( Australia - somewhere in north asia)
We called a few companies that ship cars , but the were verry expensive.
Do You have any tips on shipping . ( getting it done while youre at the port ?) What's the cheapest way?
What do We need to watch out for?


[ Edit: Sorry, no personal details please. ]

These people can help. They're mostly bikers, but 4 wheel drive too. They can answer many questions about shipping.

Whilst I am not sure on details, quite a few countries (particularly Australia) make it hard to bring vehicles from overseas, and will often be illegal to drive them in the country, particularly if they are left hand drive vehicles. Depending on how long you will be there. It may make more sense to either rent or buy a car whilst you are in Australia.
