What is a Train & Rail Car Transport Service?

Car transport by rail in Australia involves moving vehicles in rail cars often referred to as ‘autoracks’. The process entails loading the cars onto the rail cars, securing them in a safe and secure manner, and then attaching the rail cars to a train for transportation. When the train reaches its final stop, the cars are unloaded and delivered to their intended destination. This method of transportation is a popular choice for both businesses and individuals wanting to move their vehicles across states due to its convenience. 

What are Some of the Benefits of Train & Rail Car Transport Services?

One of the main benefits of transporting cars interstate by train is that it is both cost-effective and more environmentally friendly. Trains burn less fuel than other modes of transport like cars and planes, making train and rail car transport a more sustainable option. On top of that, train and rail car transport is considered significantly safer than road transport due to the reduced number of accidents and a lower likelihood of theft or destruction. Plus, transporting a car by rail helps to prevent any wear and tear that could occur by driving it long distances.
