What is the Cheapest Way to Ship RVs?

The idea of shipping a recreational vehicle may be foreign to some, simply because they use their recreational vehicle, or RV, as their primary mode of transporting other vehicles or vessels. Similarly, many people drive RVs long distances as a sort of vacation or cross-country trek.

Heck, some people even choose to live in them, so why would you ever need to ship such a vehicle?  There are actually many legitimate reasons that you would need to ship an RV, including relocation (domestic OR international), selling/buying transaction of an RV, or perhaps, your RV is no longer in working order and you need to have it moved.  Obviously, the same factors that go into shipping a standard size automobile do not pertain to shipping an RV, so if you want to get the best deal for your money when transporting one of these vehicles, be sure to heed the following advice.

Find a Company Experienced in RV Shipping.

This may sound like a given, but unfortunately, there are any number of transport companies out there masquerading as RV shippers, when in fact, they have no prior experience.  You wouldn't give a 12 year old the keys to your car, would you?  So, why would you trust an amateur with your treasured investment?  The answer is, you wouldn't.  So, use resources online, make some calls, and do adequate research before you sign any contract.  A professional RV experienced company will be able to provide references, will have good reviews online, and will boast a proven track record with the Better Business Bureau.

Determine How Best to Ship Your RV.

Because you are not an industry expert, it may be difficult to determine this by yourself.  Lucky for the layman, any auto transporter worth its salt will be able to help you figure out the best mode of transport for your vehicle.  There are many options, depending on the size, make, and model of your vehicle.  There are also additional factors that come into play depending on the value of your RV.  The following are just some of the methods large recreational vehicles are shipped:

  • Flat Bed Trucks.
  • Step-Deck Trailers.
  • Low Boy Trailers.
  • Extendable Drop Trailers.
  • Vessel Trailers.
  • And many, many more.

Of course, sometimes it's the best AND easiest option to just tow your vehicle.

Don't Compare Apples to Oranges.

Again, a common phrase stemming from common sense, but unfortunately, too many people think that a quote from one company will parallel a quote from another.  This is so far from the truth that it's a bit scary.  Make sure that the quote you receive from a REPUTABLE transport company includes insurance, gives you some semblance of a timeline, and actually composes a quote based on your individual, unique vehicle.  Anything else cannot be trusted, and you will most likely pay dearly down the line when the company either doesn't pick up your RV, cannot handle it, or tacks on all sorts of additional fees and surcharges after you have committed.  If you want an affordable RV shipping process, then do not ignore these warnings, and find a company equipped to handle the transport process safely while maintaining affordability.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
