There are many different types of RV’s in the world, but this is no challenge for a reputable RV shipping company. With a reputable business, you can take advantage of state-of-the-art transport carriers.
A great benefit to hiring an RV transport company is that you can safely ship your RV and avoid unwanted wear and tear on the vehicle.
Preparing an RV for Transport.
- Secure Everything: Anything that might come loose during transport needs to be fastened down. Make sure to check latches, drawers, windows, doors, vents and awnings. Do not forget to take down wall hangings.
- Remove Personal Items: If you have anything of value on the RV, make sure to remove it and ship it separately. Vibrations during transit might make something break which the moving company cannot be held responsible for. Items left inside the RV that have the potential to break might also damage the inside of the RV. So make sure to remove personal items before the ship date.
- General Maintenance: By performing some basic maintenance you can rest assured that your RV, motorhome or trailer is in road-ready condition. You will need to check the tire pressure and fluid levels prior to the scheduled ship date.
- Disconnect Gas & Power: Turn off any gas lines or power supplies that must be disconnected prior to transport. Lights, fans, refrigerators and other appliances inside the RV should be unplugged.
How Much does it Cost to Ship an RV?
To find out how much it will cost you to ship your RV, you will need to talk to an agent from the RV transport company. The make and model of the RV and distance both play a role in how much you will pay in the end. To discuss a quote, contact a professional transport company.
