Shipping A Step Van Or Multi-Stop Truck

How to Ship A Step Van Or Multi-Stop Truck?

Step vans, sometimes also referred to as multi-stop trucks, are a type of vehicle designed for local deliveries. Examples of this would include things like dry cleaning services for businesses, a Fed Ex truck, or even an ice cream truck. Given the amount of cargo space in a stepvan, they can also be a good candidate to convert into a camper van.

Because of the size and dimensions of step vans, they require a little more expertise to transport than would a standard vehicle. Depending on the size of the step van, it could require a special type of carrier to transport it. While not every vehicle shipping company has the capability or equipment to handle the job, it’s fairly easy to tell those that do. They should either have a section on the website or an article (such as this one) explaining that it’s a service they offer and how the process operates.

Why ship a step van?

As with any type of vehicle, it can seem counterintuitive to ship it to a place where you plan on then driving it. After all, it has wheels of its own and, if it’s in good working condition, it makes sense to drive it, right? That may make sense if its a drive you can do in a day, but what about going all the way across the country? That’s where things can get a little dicey and it starts to make sense to hire a shipper.

Naturally, there’s the concern that mechanical issues may crop up while driving across several states. As we’re all aware, vehicle repairs can be a costly and time consuming endeavor (bear in mind that food and lodging are costs along the way). So let’s explore another option: renting a trailer and transporting it yourself.

There are two main issues with renting a truck and hauling a step van on your own. The first is that you’ve likely not done it before and could miss something important that a professional transporter would be able to catch. The second is that insurance will not cover any damages caused by driver error if you’re doing the job yourself.

Any company that moves step vans, multi-stop trucks, walk-in delivery vans, or any other type of vehicle, must have insurance that covers damages caused by the driver.

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.

A1 Auto Transport... From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

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.
