We are starting to experience COVID impacts within our teams due to either positive cases or close contacts. As a result, we have experienced some capacity reductions within all areas of our business (both admin and operational).

CEVA has deployed (as per all previous COVID outbreaks) our COVID Safe Plan and is following all Government mandates around operating within the workplace. We also have many staff working from home in a safe environment to ensure their on-going ability to function and remain safe. Due to some capacity reductions across the team, we are seeing some service impacts in relation to customer communications (contacting clients for collections / drop-offs) and on-time delivery performance.

To that end, we are seeing some delays (3-5 days) on both the intrastate and interstate. CEVA is doing all in its power to ensure smooth operations and strong customer service throughout this once again challenging time. To expedite interstate vehicle movements at this time we would recommend booking depot to depot services.

Our standard transit days are available when you request a quote through our quick quote system or Quote & Book page. Any public holidays, delays and force majeure events can be found in our Service Alerts page.


Do I need to be present during pickup and delivery of the vehicle?

Yes, you or someone else must be in attendance to sign off or sign for the vehicle and go through the inspection survey. If there is no one present there may be additional fees for the wasted journey as we cannot do an unattended collection or delivery.


Do you transport non-running or damaged vehicles?

In general no we do not, however in some instances and on some lanes we are able to transport non drivable vehicles and vehicles that have minimal damage.  For more information, please see our Damaged and Non-Drivable Vehicle Transport section or contact our Customer Care Centre here.

Corporate Sustainability

Every day we do what we can to reduce our environmental impact and contribute to our community as well as deliver consistently high standards of service as car transporters.

In Australia, we have joined the Federal Government's Energy Efficiency Opportunities program, which encourages Australian businesses to improve their energy efficiency by requiring companies to identify and report publicly on cost-effective energy saving opportunities.

At CEVA, we use a unique online system to track, report and monitor our carbon footprint, and this system shows us the measurable savings we make in carbon emissions and cost.

We have adopted a holistic company-wide sustainability program to reduce our environmental impact, especially carbon emissions. It includes our transport and warehouse operations, procurement and business travel. This program is based on CEVA values and is closely aligned with other initiatives that reflect our commitment to corporate social responsibility.

Globally, CEVA is accredited to a number of important standards. Our accreditation shows that we are committed to high standards in these areas of operation and that we have strong systems to make sure we meet these standards every day:

  • SA8000 makes sure all CEVA operations in the world meet universal standards for how we treat workers, including health and safety, child labour, forced labour, working hours, payment, discrimination and freedom of association
  • OHSAS18001 sets standards for minimising health and safety risks in our operations
  • The IIP (Investor in People) standard focuses on training and developing our employees to achieve their potential. This commitment helps us recruit and keep the best people, and means our customers get dedicated, skilled and motivated people helping them
  • ISO9001 is about our standards for high quality management, including customer focus, leadership and mutually beneficial and sustainable relationships with our suppliers
  • ISO14001 confirms that we go beyond government regulations to minimise the impact of our operations on the environment.

We are also proud to contribute to a better society by sponsoring the Motorvate program across Australia. Motorvate educates young drivers in safer driving skills and attitudes.

Meet interstate transport driver, Tim Lawrence

tim lawrence

"I've been a driver for CEVA, working out of Melbourne, for the past six years. "

"I drive one of the most modern car carrying rigs in our fleet. It's a Mack Trident MP8-500 (18 speed road ranger and sleeper cab) with an overhead car frame towing a Top Start 7 Car Carrying Trailer."

"On any given day, you'll probably find me on the Hume Highway between Melbourne and Sydney. I love the sense of freedom I get from driving interstate, and I enjoy having lunch in a different place every day!"

"When I'm not driving my rig, I still spend time with wheels. I'm a real car lover, and I drive a Subaru."

"It's important to me that I can take good care of your car while it's in my hands, right through its journey with CEVA."

"My top tip for customers is to leave a note in your vehicle if you have any special instructions. I'll see it and look after your car exactly how you'd want me to."
