Preparing Your Recreational Vehicle For Auto Transport

As with any other vehicle, some minimal preparation is recommended before having an RV moved by a professional. Following these simple steps will help make sure that there are no hang-ups, incidents or delays after we pick up your RV to start the transport process.

Secure Everything

This includes anything that's loose or might come loose during auto transport, both on the inside and outside of the RV. Make sure to double-check latches, drawers, windows, doors, vents and awnings. Don't forget about wall hangings and appliances!

Remove Personal Items

This goes along with the first point about preparing an RV for auto shipping. Anything that can rattle around over the course of a long delivery can cause problems for the transporter, and worse, potential damage to your recreational vehicle.

Document the RV Condition

Don't forget to document the condition of your RV before it's picked up by a transporter. A door auto transport company will also record the condition of your RV, and having your own notes ready for comparison is a good idea. We also recommend to our valued customers that they take photos of their RV before having it moved.

General Maintenance Before RV Shipping

Some basic RV maintenance can go a long way in making your experience with an RV transport company a good one. It's crucial to check things like tire pressure and fluid levels before the pick up of your RV, motorhome or travel trailer.

This step will guard against any mechanical mishaps during door auto transport and ensure that your RV is in great road-ready condition when it arrives.

Disconnect Gas & Power Supply

Make sure to turn off any gas lines or power supplies prior to transport. This also includes lights, fans, refrigerators and any other appliance inside the RV.

Choosing The Best RV Hauler

Based on consumer data from recent research, over 40 million Americans use recreational vehicles in a year. Similar to trying to settle in a place away from home, shipping an RV can be stressful.

It's all a matter of choosing the right RV hauler before entrusting them with your vehicle. Here, we've collated tips to help you choose a professional and experienced RV transport company.

Related Information & Faq Rv

Perform Due Diligence

RV transport companies are very different. While reputable auto shipping companies like A-1 RV transport have your best interest in mind, it is not uncommon to find ones that haven't prioritized it.

Doing your homework adequately involves investigating their address authenticity, reading client reviews from third-party review platforms alongside knowing whether they've shipped RVs before.

Understand The RV Transport Company's Pricing

The weight of your RV and the distance you need to transport it are two main determining factors. If the RV transport company charges too low, the deal is probably too good to be true.

While trying to save a couple of hundred dollars can sometimes work to your leverage, it is only wise to avoid transport companies that charge too low.

Plan in Advance

Little acts like interacting with the logistics of the transport company beforehand could help you reduce costly charges.

If possible, meet with the RV transport company's logistics department, ask about their timelines, routes and possible events that could cause delays.

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.

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.
