The Challenges Of Door-To-Door RV Shipping

It can be a challenge for any auto transport company to ship an RV, especially door-to-door. Unlike standard forms of shipping which require the customer to pick up the RV at a delivery terminal, door-to-door means that the shipper will drop it off at the specific address for delivery, or as close as possible.

There are some limiting factors that determine how close an RV can be delivered to a particular address. For one, the size of the RV may make it difficult to navigate smaller streets with a transport carrier. The larger the RV, the larger the carrier required to transport it. As you’re probably aware, RVs come in a number of different shapes and sizes. Here are just a few examples of the types of recreational vehicles that we’re often called upon to transport for clients:

  • Class A, B, & C motorhomes
  • Bus conversions
  • Campervans
  • Popup campers
  • Hybrid RVs & Class B+ motorhomes
  • Fifth wheels
  • Toterhomes

Shipping An RV To Another State

Shipping An RV To Another State

If you own an RV, you probably don’t see a lot of sense in having a company ship it over a relatively short distance. After all, if you can make the drive in an RV in a couple days, then why not take advantage of the portability you’ve paid for?

What this means for most people is that shipping an RV is only considered when shipping to another state, with a few possible exceptions. However, if you need to use your RV on the other side of the country, driving it all the way there may seem a bit daunting. That’s where companies like A-1 Auto Transport step in and handle the job. It’s a service that is especially popular among snowbirds and long-term vacationers.

Preparing Your RV For Door-To-Door Transport

Just like any other type of vehicle, an RV requires some preparation before it can be picked up for shipment. These apply to any vehicle, but they are especially important for recreational vehicles since there are more items that can shift inside the vehicle while shipping.

Cleaning the vehicle and documenting any existing damages is the first step. Anything inside the RV should be secured or removed and you should ensure that all drawers, cupboards, and doors are firmly latched.

The RV should be in running condition (it can still be moved if not, but that needs to be indicated) and it should have appropriate fluid levels and tire pressure prior to loading. Any internal electronic components should be turned off. In most cases, you’ll also have to disable the power supply, but that depending on the shipper, that may not be necessary until further along in the process.

★★★★★ 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.

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.
