Methods Used to Transport RV’s Overseas
- Enclosed Transport - This method of transport is the most expensive way to ship an RV to Australia. Even though this is the most expensive shipping solution it offers the most security for the shipper. Your RV will be placed inside of an enclosed container completely protected against the elements and driving conditions.
- Open Air Transport - This method is the cheapest way to transport an RV to Australia. It requires the shipper to remove all personal property from the inside of the RV. You must be sure that everything is secured including latches, drawers, windows, doors, vents and awnings.
How Long does it Take to Ship an RV
Shipping your RV from the USA to Australia depends greatly on the time of year. Typically, you can expect your RV to arrive at its destination in roughly two weeks. If you plan on shipping in the summer months, it might take even longer because this is when business is booming for all shipping companies.
Document the Condition of Your RV
To make sure your RV arrives at its destination safely, make sure you document its condition. Taking photos is the best way to ensure that your RV arrives flawlessly. Make copies of the photos you have taken and give them to the shipping company. Before your RV ever leaves, it will undergo a brief inspection which you will sign off on.
