To reduce the overall cost of transporting your RV, there are other steps you can take besides shopping around.
For this to work, your RV must be in working order no matter where it is transported, but you must bring it home. Transport the RV to a terminal that is relatively close to your residence, and then drive it home yourself. The benefits of this method are available primarily to retirees or individuals who may be absent from work; otherwise, the lost paycheck might not be worth it. Even so, a shorter distance and easier delivery will result in lower costs if the transport leads to a nearby location.
We recommend booking at least a week or two in advance, as RV transports tend to be more expensive when rushed. Finding a carrier with an open schedule a few weeks in advance reduces the chances that they will mess with their schedule, especially if you are their preferred service. If you want the lowest rates, just ask the RV transportation company. You may have to wait a little longer for transportation, but you will save money in the long run.
Moment of gas prices
There is no easy way to do this! During the summer of 2022, gas prices changed a lot. Be sure to check the price of diesel as your truck probably uses diesel if you don’t seem to have an urgent need to move your RV right away.
Prepare in advance
You will need to complete quite a few tasks before your RV can be transported or rolled. Water, gas and other systems should be turned off, and the weight of your RV should be reduced. The longer transportation has to wait for you to be ready to pick up your RV, the more likely you are to pay. Save time and money by planning ahead.
Be careful when accepting the terms
Low carrier prices may be too good to be true. It costs the same to transport goods. A driver may not accept a low deposit if the company wants a non-refundable deposit.
