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.
★★★★★ 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.

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!

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
