Factors that affect RV Shipping Rates

Some conditions are taken into consideration before you are given a price for the shipping of your RV. Some of these factors are;

  • The type of shipping service you purchase; of course, the price of a full shipping service would be higher.
  • The specific information about the RV such as its age, weight, and present condition
  • If there is any other thing to be shipped with the RV and how much it weighs
  • The current time of the year, such as holidays
  • How much distance is there between the locations where the RV is being picked up and dropped.

Shipping an RV within the country

Domestic RV shipping is easier and less time-wasting than shipping internationally. To transport your RV across the country, the RV is attached to a hauler, trailer, or container. This is called the Ground Transport method. In the case of bad weather, traffic, or road construction, your RV’s arrival may be delayed. This is not very common, but we will inform you of any possible delays.

International RV shipping

To transport your RV internationally, it will be driven or towed onto a ship. If you are familiar with auto shipping, you will know that this process is not very different from transporting any other type of vehicle. Your RV will be transported by boat to the appropriate location using the Roll-on/Roll-off method.

Different ways of shipping an RV

There are different methods employed when it comes to shipping RVs. You can specify what method you want to be used by your shipping company, or just leave the decision to them. Some of these methods are;

  • Container shipping
  • Roll-on/Roll-off shipping method
  • Flat rack shipping
  • Ground Transport method – divided into the enclosed and open air ground transport methods.
  • Door to Door delivery
  • High priority services

How to prep your RV for transportation

As the owner of an RV, it is your responsibility to properly prepare your vehicle for shipping. Check to see if all of the fluid levels are full and level. Check for any leaks as well. If there are any leaks, have them fixed before the delivery date. It’s usually a good idea to hire a professional to perform maintenance on your RV before it is transported.

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!
