The camping industry is growing rapidly, meaning there are more RVs that need transporting and more business for RV haulers. Some customers are simply moving and need their RV taken to their new home. Other people are buying and selling RVs and need to transport the RV to the new owner. Also, RV retailers often rely on RV transporters to get new RVs into their lots to be sold.
RV transport jobs require special licensing, training, and experience driving and transporting large vehicles. Make sure your experience, equipment, and paperwork are right for the jobs you are trying to book.
Moving RVs by Drive-Away
In some cases, you will find customers that want their RVs transported by drive-away services. This requires you to drive their RV from the origin to the destination instead of hauling it by truck or flatbed.
Most RV transport jobs require that the RV be hauled to its final destination. Hauling RVs involves having the right equipment and trucks for safely loading and transporting each specific RV. This may include special hitches for different sizes and types of RVs or different sized trailers.
Before completing any RV transport job, make sure to thoroughly inspect the RV from top to bottom. Document any damage with the owner of the RV, or the person sending the RV with you, to prevent potential claims that you caused any preexisting damage during transit. At the destination, inspect the RV again with the receiving customer to make sure that the damage on your initial report matches the damage on the RV.
