ATV & UTV Door To Door Vehicle Shipping
ATVs and UTVs are among the easier vehicles to ship using the door to door transport method. The job is made easier by the fact that all terrain vehicles and utility task vehicles are both smaller and lighter than other types of vehicles that are typically shipped. This translates to cheaper shipping costs, as well as a vehicle that’s easier to deliver to a specific location.
When vehicle carriers ship larger cars and trucks, they often have to drop them off at the nearest possible location, rather than at the specified address. Since transport carriers are large trucks with a limited turning radius, there are some places that are simply too difficult navigate, such as one way streets and cul-de-sacs.
Door To Door ATV & UTV Shipping
Door-to-door transport is a popular choice among our customers shipping an ATV or UTV and there’s good reason. Unlike other types of vehicles, you can’t drive an ATV or UTV on the road in most areas. What this means is that if you opt for shipment to a delivery terminal, you will still have to find a way to haul it to its final destination. With other types of vehicles, you can simply be dropped off at the terminal and drive it home.
Additionally, there is the convenience factor. Whether you’re traveling to your favorite riding grounds for a weekend getaway, or having a UTV delivered after purchase, there is simply no easier way to get it from point A to point B than to have it delivered.

All Terrain & Utility Task Vehicle Shipping | A-1 Auto Transport
Door-to-door shipping can be done for any type of ATV of UTV on the market. Here are the types of ATVs and UTVs that we ship the most frequently:
- Sport ATVs
- Side by Side UTVs
- Children’s ATVs
- Military ATVs
- Off-road vehicles
- Amphibious ATVs
- Utility vehicles
Any company you partner with to ship an ATV should be able to fill you in on the full details of the process, what you’ll need to do, and what to expect from them. All vehicle shippers are required to carry insurance by law, which protects you from any damages your vehicle incurs at the fault of the company moving it.
The majority of door to door shipments, UTV or otherwise, tend to be done on an enclosed transport carrier. Door to door shipments move fewer vehicles at once, and as such, are smaller and easier to navigate on city streets. Conversely, an open-air carrier moves several vehicles at the same time—sometimes up to 12—and is much more difficult to operate on city streets.
