Preparing Your Recreational Vehicle For 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 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 shipping. Anything that has a chance of rattling 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 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 customers that they take photos of their RV before having it moved.
- General Maintenance: Some basic RV maintenance can go a long way in making your experience with an RV shipping company a good one. Things like tire pressure and fluid levels should be checked before pick up of your RV, motorhome or trailer. This step will guard against any mechanical mishaps during transport and ensure that your RV is in great road-ready condition when it arrives.
- Disconnect Gas & Power: Any gas liens or power supplies should be turned off or disconnected prior to transport. This also includes lights, fans, refrigerators and any other appliance inside the RV.
