Customer Question
Long story and difficult...

Long story and difficult to abridge. Moved to Qld from NSW. Tried to transfer my rego to Qld. Previously my car had been written off with hail damage, only had it 12 months and no problem in NSW. Now, Qld have had to apply to NSW for verification of something from NSW VIN Unit. Seems the VIN unit have to wait till the National database is updated. I am a 62 yo disability pensioner, I have already been grounded for 2 weeks with no end in sight. I need to move from where I am living and the only way I can inspect is to use my Carers. Can get expensive as I also have help with my showers and cleaning with them. I am unable to use public transport and taxis are out of my price range. Can you advise me please?

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer about this?

No, they are also out of my price range. I can get free legal, but they are not very up to date with a lot of things.

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

Rand Qld Roads and NSW RTA.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Not unless you have some advice for me.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
