There are some problems in life we’ll most likely never have to consider or ponder.  Like – how do I get my car – worth well over a million dollars – from Melbourne to Berlin?  Well, just in case you are ever presented with that question – we have the answer.

If you owned a 1955 Mercedes Benz SLR300 Gullwing you’d be one proud parent.  The reason why you’re sending it to Berlin – we don’t know, but lets assume you’ve sold it (Sad Face:( ).

Apparently the solution for this Melbourne based vehicle  was Virgin Australia.  Using their long-haul international cargo provider Virgin Atlantic Cargo – you book the car a seat in the cargo bay, and you organise the best of the best ground handling staff from the Virgin Australia team in Melbourne and Virgin Atlantic Cargo to carefully manoeuvre the car around the doors of the Boeing 777 cargo hold.

All that, while ensuring the rest of the passengers bags are loaded and the car in place in time to get VA23 on its way to Los Angeles LAX on time.

According to Virgin Australia, the car will travel from Los Angeles to London again by air, then by truck to its final destination in Berlin.
