What is Train & Rail Car Transport Services?
Car transport via train or rail is a specialised mode of transportation whereby vehicles are carried in rail cars or ‘autoracks’, often across large distances. The vehicles are loaded onto the rail cars, secured in place with fabric webbing to strap the car down around each tyre, and the rail cars are then raised and attached to a train. Once the train arrives at its destination, the cars are unloaded and delivered to their final destination. Rail transport is a popular option for individuals and businesses looking to move their vehicles interstate due to its convenience, affordability, and reliability.
Benefits of Train & Rail Car Transport Services
There are several benefits to transporting cars interstate by train in Australia. Firstly, it’s a cost-effective way to move vehicles across long distances, with a lower environmental impact than other forms of transport. In addition, rail transport is generally considered to be safer and more reliable than road transport, with fewer accidents and a lower risk of theft or damage. Finally, using a car transport service that has experience in rail transport can make the process more streamlined and efficient, with add-on options such as door-to-door service.
