Oversize Vehicle Auto Transport
However, there are quite a few differences between standard auto transport and shipping an oversize vehicle. Lucky for you, we at Worldwide Shipping understand how oversize shipping works and what it needs to be affordable and successful. But there are also some things that you’ll need to understand, especially if you’ve never shipped an oversized vehicle before.
What constitutes an oversize vehicle?
When it comes to auto transportation services, an oversize vehicle is any vehicle that cannot fit on an open or enclosed transport truck.
This, naturally, can apply to a lot of different vehicles. Here’s a small list of vehicles that are typically oversized:
- Construction equipment
- Fifth-wheel trucks
- Recreational vehicles
- Sprinter vans
- Travel trailers
This is far from a comprehensive list, of course. But all of them have one thing in common: they’re way too big to fit on a standard auto transport truck.
How oversize vehicle auto transport works
Because oversize vehicle auto transport deals with vehicles that are, well, too big, it’s important to know how the process works. Really, it’s not much different from standard vehicle shipping services, but there are some differences. Notably the fact that oversize vehicles need to travel on a flatbed transport truck.
Flatbed trucks aren’t usually available on demand like open or enclosed transport trucks. Instead, they’re specialized for oversize vehicles and heavy equipment. Because of this, you’ll need to give us the dimensions of your oversize vehicle before we can determine whether it needs a flatbed truck or not.
Flatbed shipping will be more expensive than open or enclosed transport along the same route. But if your vehicle can’t fit on a standard hauler, it’s really not going to matter – it’s either you ship it flatbed or you don’t ship it, really. You can and should speak to an agent about oversize vehicle auto transport services. They can explain more about what you’re facing when you ship your oversize vehicle, including pricing differences, carrier availability, and more.
