Considerations When Shipping An ATV

There are a lot of great destination spots for adventure with all terrain vehicles, which is why they make up a healthy amount of the auto transport business. While there are many who are comfortable towing their own ATVs or UTVs, sometimes the trip is far enough away that it makes more sense to ship them. Likewise, there are many who would prefer to have theirs shipped so they can freely and quickly get to where they’re going without handling the logistics themselves. That being the case, here are some of the most important considerations you should have in mind before contacting a company to ship your ATV or UTV.

Company Research

You’re going to find that there are a lot of options when you start looking for a company to ship an ATV or ATVs. In order to figure out which one is best, you should do some basic research by looking up their company website, finding reviews of their service, and determining how long they’ve been in business. You can also look up safety information about a company by consulting the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s website. If a company hasn’t been in business long, doesn’t have a professional website, and at least a few positive reviews of their service, those are signs that you may want to keep looking. Any company you contact should also be more than willing to answer any questions you have, which is something you should keep in mind as you contact potential shippers. 

Insurance Coverage

While there are minimum insurance requirements for any company that ships ATVs, some offer more coverage than others. You almost always have the option of choosing additional coverage if you feel like the basic coverage isn’t sufficient. Regardless of whether or not you opt for additional insurance, you should always ask a shipper you’re considering about their insurance policy, as well as any questions you have about it. Accidents are pretty rare, but the possibility does exist and it’s important to know how a company will handle the situation in the event that it does happen.

Service Options

You will have some options to consider when you’re shipping an ATV. The main options are shipping method and delivery point. Just like a car or motorcycle, you can have an ATV shipped on an open carrier, or in an enclosed carrier. Most transport is done on open carriers, but an enclosed option is available from most shippers if you have concerns about privacy or weather. You can also choose to have your ATV shipped directly to a specific location, or delivered to a terminal from which you pick it up. These options do affect the cost of shipping an ATV, so you should have a clear idea of what you need when contacting a transport agent. 

Multiple Estimates

One last final tip that applies to contacting shippers and getting an estimate: it’s a good idea to widen your search. Prices are different between companies so contacting a couple is a good approach to saving money, not to mention that you’ll have a more clear picture of which companies offer better service. When you do contact a company for a price quote, try to have a few questions you need answered to gauge their level of preparation and professionalism. After speaking to a couple shippers, you’ll have a good idea of what you’re looking for.

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!
