“With limited leave our family trip to Central Australia from Brisbane meant driving one way and getting our Land Cruiser 200 series and Aussie Swag camper trailer transported back. I researched various transportation options such as road trains / vehicle transporters and I luckily came across Anthony’s CRS brochure in a caravan park whilst returning from last year’s road trip. After making initial contact via email Anthony’s communication was excellent and he kept accommodating my varied dates and times until we had a locked in plan and quote.
His quote was much less than any other form of transportation I could find. It was with a little trepidation that I met Anthony for the first time in Alice Springs at the prearranged location. His professional approach to my beloved vehicle and camper was much appreciated. After driving to the airport I waived Anthony off in my vehicle. He gave me regular updates on his progress across the country and also took my vehicle into a mechanics when it needed a new fuel filter on the way home. The light had come on before handover, but Anthony was quite happy to get the work done rather than risk a problem with my vehicle.
The vehicle was returned home at the prearranged time and Anthony had even washed off the red dirt! I would have absolutely no hesitation in thoroughly recommending Anthony to anyone who wanted a vehicle / RV relocation. Many thanks Anthony and I look forward to another big trip”
I must confess from the start I’m not one for posting feedback on business matters and experiences, however in this case I am more than happy to break the drought.
My wife and I recently had the pleasure of using your services, albeit with Allen and Sue who have recently joined your business. Having had an unexpected and sudden event arise and needing our newly purchased van (not our first) to be moved interstate on short notice, we reluctantly decided to contact Caravan Relocation Services to discuss the task. I say ‘reluctantly’ on the basis of having used a transport service in the past, which resulted in a most unpleasant experience indeed, and a service in general we vowed never to use again.
However, faced with our urgent predicament had no other option but to have our van relocated and having heard from others of your professionalism, made contact. That was when we met Allen and Sue. As a business owner myself, I can surely identify between professional personnel and cowboys. Right from the onset, both my wife and I felt at ease discussing our needs and arrangements with Allen and Sue who appreciated our concerns, plus with their business experience and background quickly comprehended the situation and were ultimately given the task, which they accepted, initiated and completed with little fuss and bother, allowing us to focus on other matters, confident in the belief that we (and our new van) were in good hands.
As a result of using Caravan Relocation Services and in particular our experience with Allen and Sue, we have no hesitation in recommending your professional and friendly services now that our faith in relocation services has been fully restored.
Thank you Allen and Sue….a pleasure to meet you and thank you once again from both of us for your assistance.

My husband and I wanted to buy a 5 berth caravan. We found a suitable one on ‘Gumtree’ that suited our needs, but unfortunately it was located in Sydney, a long way from our home in Katherine, in the Northern Territory!
After much searching for road transport to pick up and send our van to Katherine with expensive quotes, we discovered they would only deliver our van to Darwin. This then meant we would have to travel to Darwin to collect the caravan and bring it back to Katherine.
However, after a ‘Google’ search we found ‘Caravan Relocation Services’, a personalised service, run by Anthony. So we sent an email asking questions and requested a quote. From the first point of contact we found Anthony prompt with replies to our questions. We found Anthony was easy to deal with and he offered a door to door service, which was what we needed.
Wow, Sydney to Katherine easy as…..!!
We were also surprised when we received his quote as it was several thousand dollars cheaper than sending the caravan by road transport! We decided to engage his services.
On hand over we were most impressed with our caravan, as Anthony even cleaned the van and set the caravan up on our site at the caravan park for us, as part of his efficient and effective service.
Overall we were extremely impressed and very happy with ‘Caravan Relocation Services’, just like their logo says – ‘No stress, No fuss, friendly and reliable service’. Anthony also kept us informed all along the way with the progress of travels bringing the caravan up north some 4000 kilometres.
We have no hesitation in recommending this wonderful service and very friendly man to anyone who may require Anthony’s ‘Caravan Relocation Services’.
Thank you, Suzanne G
I just wanted to say a big thank you to Sue and Allen bringing my new caravan from Melbourne to Queensland!
They even washed the dirt off it from the trip up before dropping it off to me so it looked sparkling clean on arrival.
They kept me updated on the trip up and I really appreciate all there support and tips with the caravan as they are very knowledgeable, it was a huge help.
Anthony was so great organising the job and the price was really good.
I am very grateful.
TESTIMONIAL FROM ONE VERY HAPPY SATISFIED CUSTOMER
I was relocating back to Australia after living abroad for 3 years. I was in a bit of a dilemma as my 4WD and camper trailer were located in Cairns QLD and I was moving to Rockingham WA. I scoured the internet for weeks with a lot of companies indicating they could do the job of relocating my car and camper, as long as the camper was empty! We were not willing to lose our camping gear and came upon Caravan Relocation Services in a magazine. I fired off an email to Anthony and received a full professional quotation within 24hrs. Although a little more expensive than putting my vehicle and camper on the back of a truck I was guaranteed to be able to keep the many thousands of dollars’ worth of camping gear & knew it would be safe in Anthony’s safe hands.
Anthony flew to Cairns to meet me and inspect the camper and vehicle. I will say, he is very thorough when he inspects a vehicle (nothing worse than being broken down in the middle of nowhere) and I can say after our first meeting I knew I had made the correct choice in choosing ‘Caravan Relocation Services’. Anthony is an older man who has lots of vehicle experience and with that came a soothing relief that I was not handing my 4WD and camper over to some yahoo who was going to thrash it from one corner of the country to the other! Prior to departing Anthony gave me his intended itinerary which he did stick to wherever he could (he delayed his departure in a few areas where hail storms were present) and provided me with regular updates. Anthony even agreed to have my vehicle serviced along the way at my request.
Upon arriving in WA Anthony met me at the agreed location to hand the vehicle & camper back over. Both the camper and 4WD looked exactly the same (some 5,600KM later) than when I handed them over to Anthony.
I would have no hesitations in the world recommending ‘Caravan Relocation Services’ to anyone as he is much easier to work with than most of the larger transport companies.

“My wife and I have known Tony & Janelle for about 20 years, both as friends and also in business dealings. During this time Tony (or Anthony) has shown to be a responsible, reliable, caring individual and is as honest as.”
“His driving record during this time has been faultless, having had company cars during this time. I know he has not had any accidents or traffic infringements and takes a lot of pride and care with his cars and equipment.
Tony always gives more than his 100% into everything he does, whether it is in his private life or during his professional life. I wish him well in his endeavours with his new adventure with helping others less fortunate and needing a happy, reliable, caring driver to assist them.” C.A. (JP) Scarborough
“I have known Tony for over 30 years. For a large part of that time Tony had 24 hour use of a company motor vehicle. He treated that “tool of trade” with the utmost respect, as if it was his own. Not only was the vehicle kept in pristine condition it was driven with the same respect.
Tony’s driving record, despite covering approximately 45,000km a year was 100% clean and he did not have a “at fault” accident during that time. Tony’s customers were treated the same way and he was held in the highest regard by his client portfolio. Tony was an enthusiastic team member, set the benchmark with his work ethics and was known as reliable, honest and a happy character by both his peers, management and his clients.”
“We have known Anthony (as Tony) for about 8 years both in the professional world, but also as social friends in later years. From our first meeting we have always found Tony to be polite, friendly, a straight shooter & have found him very upfront & honest in every aspect.
The way he conducts himself with his daily business, is always about his customers, and he will go to extreme lengths to make sure his customers are happy and satisfied. Tony’s driving record over the many decades is amazing and he treats all his personal & company vehicles with the utmost respect. You can trust Anthony 110% with any job you may wish to give him, especially with his caravan relocation business, you will not be disappointed.
Tony will not only drive your car & or caravan back to where you need them to be, but he will deliver them in the same condition as when you gave them to him. I know Tony will do well with his happy, positive nature & I wish him all the best in his Caravan Relocation business.” D.D. Redcliffe
