We did. It really depends on the car as it is not cheap to do. For most family saloons not really worth it. We brought my OHs Audi TT convertible he had from new as he loved it and they are very expensive here. Was marginally worth it financially but we enjoy more top down time here!

Cars take longer to ship and clear this end so you will need another car whilst you wait too. We knew we needed another car and we got a great deal on a new VW before we came and picked it up a couple of days after we landed.

We used Iron Lady Imports to help sort everything as it is a bit involved. You can put a car in a container with your stuff but pros and cons with this, we decided to ship car separately as worked out cheaper and we could send it ahead of time.

With animals all I know is start the process early!

I did it about 3 years ago, details in this thread http://britishexpats.com/forum/movin...va-etc-834829/ .

Biggest problem I had was actually when I came to sell it when I returned to Australia.....dealers and buyers were very sceptical of a car from Australia despite it being a full Euro spec Audi with full history. Would probably do it again only if the car was something special, or in my case was reasonably new so trying to selling here in a hurry I was going to take a big hit on the first 18 months depreciation.

I had a colleague who shipped his car from Australia to UK and the paintwork was damaged from where they secure it in transport.Personally I would consider the cost and possible damage if it was me.
