RV Transport may appear to be a complicated process, but in most cases it is as easy as shipping any other kind of vehicle. Due to the size and complexity, however, you should choose an RV transporter that is licensed and experienced in shipping RVs. By allowing a few weeks to choose a transporter, make arrangements and prepare your RV for transport, you can be sure that the entire process goes smoothly.
When transporting an RV, consider important issues such as proper licensing, RV insurance coverage and what questions to ask. You can ask a RV transporter to tow or drive your RV, depending on what type or classification it is.
Preparing an RV for transport does not take long, but it is very important, because RVs are complex vehicles that can be damaged during transport. A categorized checklist is very useful for proper preparation.
Finally, before handing off your RV to its transporter, you should check that your RV will be covered in case of an accident or damage. This is as simple as asking about RV transport insurance and checking RV transporter qualifications against public records. Understanding an RV shipping contract and insurance coverage will protect you in case of an accident.
The cost of transporting an RV depends on the distance and the size of the vehicle. On average, it costs $3.23 per mile for a college move less than 100 miles, but costs $1.15 per mile for a college move less than 1000 miles.
