What is Door to Door versus Terminal to Terminal RV Delivery?
When you purchase RV shipping services through A1 Auto Transport, you will have the option between terminal to terminal or door to door delivery. Almost every customer will have this option presented to them. There are some customers that will be exempt from this option depending on the circumstances and nature of their RV’s future transport.
Terminal to terminal shipping services are less expensive than door to door. When an RV is shipped through terminal to terminal, it puts a little more responsibility in the hands of the shipping customer. On the scheduled transport date, the bike must be dropped off accordingly at the terminal specified by A1 Auto Transport. The closest terminal will be chosen.
Once the RV is safely dropped off, it is prepared for its travels and delivered at another terminal closest to its destination. The party receiving the RV will need to be at the next terminal to retrieve it once it arrives.
When you choose to pay a little more for door to door shipping services, the transport company sends out a driver to pick the RV up from its home. It is then secured to the proper hauler for its travels. A1 will transport the recreational vehicle or motorhome directly to its new home wherever that might be according to the shipping customer.
