Shipping A Van Door To Door | Point To Point Vehicle Transport
Shipping a van can come with its own set of challenges since they are larger and heavier vehicles than most that are transported. Luckily, there are plenty of services and options out there if you are looking to have a van shipped.
What Is Door To Door Shipping?
Standard auto transport typically involves having the vehicle picked up and delivered to a transport terminal. What this means for the customer is that they must both drop off and pick up the vehicle at the nearest terminal.
The other option is door to door shipping, which is a complete point to point service. Whether you’re shipping a van or any other type of vehicle, door to door transport is just that: door to door. Your vehicle is picked up at its current location and delivered to the exact address that you specify.
There are a couple of important points about door-to-door van transport that you should keep in mind. Some addresses may be tricky to navigate for a transport truck, which means that the nearest available drop off point will be used. Typically, a nearby parking lot or an agreed upon open area near the destination.
The other aspect of door to door shipping that appeals to most customers is that it is a more efficient method of transport. Since there are fewer stops along the way to drop off other vehicles, door to door shipping offers both more convenience and quicker delivery times.
Snowbirds, Travelers & Long Distance Door To Door Van Shipping
There are many reasons why customers choose to ship (rather than drive) a van when they need to use it in another state or across the country. For one, you don’t have to put any miles on it when you use a shipper and you also avoid the risk of the van breaking down during the trip.
This is especially convenient for travelers and snowbirds that intend to use the van mainly in the area they will be visiting, rather than for the trip to get there. Often times snowbirds will travel with their RV or motorhome and have an additional vehicle shipped so that they don’t have to tow it or drive it.
Here are some of the types of vans that we ship most often:
- Passenger vans
- Panel vans
- Conversion vans
- Travel vans
- Step vans
- Camper vans
