Crossing Borders: A Guide to Transporting Your Vehicle into Western Australia

Quarantine Information

Transporting your vehicle into Western Australia requires some important considerations. One of the most important things to note is that your vehicle will undergo a quarantine inspection. This is an essential process to ensure that no unwanted pests, plant matter, or seeds are introduced to the Western Australian ecosystem.

Before you transport your vehicle to WA, you need to check for Quarantine Risk Material (QRM) in various areas of your vehicle. This includes plants, flowers, seeds, hay, soil, honey, insects, nuts, food scraps, fruit or vegetable packaging, seat covers, carpet/mats, the boot, spare tyre, engine, grill, radiator core, recess under wiper wells, wheel arches, mud flaps, tyre rims, axles and diffs, spare tyres on 4WD's suspended underneath, water tanks, steps and running boards, chassis rails and channels, and toolboxes and mounts.

If your vehicle is quarantined, you'll be required to pay a fee to have your vehicle cleaned to a satisfactory standard for entry into WA, and a $100 re-inspection fee by a QWA officer before your vehicle can be released to you.

If you're unsure about the quarantine inspection process or what items are considered Quarantine Risk Material, it's best to contact SMB Australia Car Transport. They can provide you with the necessary information and advice to ensure your vehicle meets the requirements for entry into Western Australia.

When it comes to transporting your vehicle, it's essential to take all the necessary precautions to avoid any unnecessary fees and delays. By following the guidelines and advice provided by SMB Australia Car Transport and adhering to the quarantine regulations, you can ensure a smooth and stress-free experience transporting your vehicle into Western Australia.
