With uShip, transporting an RV is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

1 | Create Your Shipment Listing

You’ll want to be prepared with a few things when creating your shipment listing through uShip. Consider your timeframe and locations for pick up and delivery. Have your RV year, make and model information ready. Most RV’s are transported on an open trailer or towed. Make sure you specify which service type you prefer. Include as much detail as possible about your RV and add some photos, so the transporters can see your shipment.

2 | Select the Best RV Transport Service

Once you have finished your shipment listing, you’ll start getting quotes from transporters who specialize in RV shipping as they compete for your business. As the quotes come in, you can respond to the quotes and talk directly to the transporters.

Each RV transport company has their own uShip carrier profile with their transportation history, safety records and customer rated feedback for your review. While a low rate is great, you’ll want to review the carrier profiles to make sure you’re choosing the best RV transport company for your job. Check out the profile for their motor carrier (MC) number or operating authority. This number is directly tied in with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), so you can see their safety records. We advise reviewing these profiles and talking to the transporters so you can feel confident in choosing the best RV transport company.
