Transit Times and Delays
We provide reliable and accurate information regarding transit times, to the best of our ability. All transit times given are estimates only and are not and cannot be guaranteed. They are based on business days. Delays will occur due to seasonal demand, acts of nature, truck issues, railway delays and other unforeseen circumstances.
We try to honor all quotes for 7 days, however as some prices are only available for limited amount of time or as fuel charges change. Specials and back loads are only available until sold and must be paid by credit card to secure them.
Auction house p/ups
We require all the information in regards to these types of transport. Buyer number, bidder number, lot number and release number. It is the customer’s responsibility to make sure we can secure p/up delays and futile charges may apply. Be sure you know your vehicle can meet our transport requirements as above.
Goods in vehicles:
Special quotes are required for goods in vehicles and are not a standard quote. All vehicles with agreed goods inside will only be accepted for transport upon written acceptance by ACR and/or the carrier. Nil/no insurance cover is given for the vehicle and/or the goods inside; customers need to arrange their own insurance cover. Cars with goods inside do take longer to transport due to added security and availability of trucks that can transport them.
Depots are open 8 am to 4 pm Monday to Friday only. Please note depots are loading and unloading only and can not accept bookings and payments. Vehicles are not allocated to a scheduled load until received at the depot. For this reason we do not supply depot addresses until the vehicle is booked and due to the fact in some locations we have multiple depots and once booked the computer will advise us the depot to use.

- We are not a common carrier, do not accept any liability as a common carrier and may refuse to provide services to you or a vehicle for any reason.
- We rely on the details supplied by you to us but we do not admit their accuracy or completeness and our signature on the contract or vehicle condition report is only an acknowledgement that we have picked up or received the vehicle.
- Our services commence when we, or our agent, pick up or accept the vehicle, and we earn our charges then.
- We contract as agent and trustee for our employees, agents and subcontractors so they also have the benefit of the contract and these conditions (including any exclusions or limitations of liability we have) to the same extent as us and as if they were parties to it.
