Does anyone know if there's a cargo allowance on some types of QANTAS tickets?
I remember that at one of the places I used to work we had a heavy server computer that needed to be moved to Sydney, we somehow got it moved as excess baggage or cargo on the ticket of one of our managers who was flying on QF, although it did have to travel on a different flight to her. However, I can't find anything about it now.

I'm contemplating relocating myself to Sydney (I'm sick of Perth) and if I take the plunge and do, this could prove very handy, if it exists.

I believe you may be referring to "Unaccompanied Baggage".

Click that link for Qantas' interpretation of it.

The other thing is that Domestic Qantas only has an excess baggage charge of $20 per piece so you could check an extra couple of bags and there shouldn't be any issues while you could check the rest as cargo like Serfty mentioned. Checking 30 boxes at $20 per piece might be a different story though. ;)

Ok, thanks guys.
At this stage another option I've figured out is to pack my car full of cough then have it rail freighted over on the Indian Pacific. Cheaper than driving across, both in dollar terms and in cost to my sanity. Plus I'll be able to squeeze in far more than I could ever get away with as excess baggage. :D

I did this some years ago and the car arrived intact (and locked) minus a few of my pieces of 'cough'

Was a while ago but just thought I'd warn you. :cool:
