How To Ship A UTV
If you have just moved house, bought, or sold a UTV, it is highly likely that you will now need to find a UTV transport company. UTVs (Utility Terrain Vehicles) are generally much larger than an ATV and are not easy vehicles to move. There are hundreds of options out there to transport your UTV, but comparing them and collecting prices can be a very time-consuming ordeal.
So why not use Shiply? On Shiply there are hundreds of UTV transporters ready to bid on your job, generally at prices up to 75% less than typical rates. All we will need from you are some basic details about what you need to be shipped, when, and where. You should think about a few things first, however, such as the types of UTV shipping available to you.
Types Of UTV Transport Services
UTVs can be shipped in a number of ways depending on what you require, and what method you pick will likely affect the price of your UTV shipping. In most cases, a UTV would be put on a trailer and, depending on the value of your UTV, this can be open or closed. Open trailers are cheaper, and typically will have multiple vehicles on them, but they do mean that your UTV is exposed to the elements whilst it is being transported.
If your UTV being exposed whilst in transit is a worry due to the value of the vehicle then you should opt for closed trailer shipping. Whilst you will likely pay a premium price for this service, your UTV is completely protected.
How Much Does It Cost To Ship A UTV?
There are a number of factors that can affect the cost of shipping an ATV, but on average, you can expect to pay around $100 - $300 for shorter journeys, whilst longer deliveries will cost you somewhere between $350 - $600+.
Whilst distance is an obvious factor that affects pricing, you should also be aware of the following:
Type Of UTV Shipping - As was stated earlier, open, multi-vehicle trailers will be your cheapest option of shipping. Enclosed trailer transport will bring the price of the quotes up.
Timings - If you are relaxed on the timings of your UTV transport then you will likely see cheaper quotes as UTV shipping companies can fit you into their existing schedule if they have the spare space. Should you need your vehicle delivered by a certain time or date then this may end up costing you more as a new delivery arranged just for you will likely be required.
Locations Of Pickup And Delivery - Most shipping companies are picking up and dropping off items in populated urban areas. Their terminals are typically near cities, so deliveries that fall within this range are often able to be priced cheaper. If you are based out somewhere remote, this may raise the price of the quotes you are receiving.
Time Of Year - Although rare, the weather conditions can sometimes affect the quotes you are getting for UTV shipping. Roads can be closed off by ice, snow, or wind, and if it is the case that these closures affect your delivery and you still need it to go ahead, you may have to cover some of the costs.
How Can Shiply Help Find UTV Shipping Companies?
Now that you have a better understanding of the types of UTV shipping and the factors that can affect pricing, you can now go ahead and find a company to complete the move for you. On Shiply, you can compare all of your quotes in one place, streamlining the process and saving you time.
All we need from you is the size of the Utility Terrain Vehicle you need shipping, the dates that you need it moved (and timings if required), and the address of the pick-up and delivery locations. Once you provide us with these, your job will be posted and companies will start sending you quotes to transport your ATV. You can use the ratings and feedback system we have on the platform to pick the company you like the most, and you even have the ability to message them with any queries or questions you may have.
Drivers on Shiply are often making similar journeys already and are looking to fill up extra space they have. This is why quotes are often up to 75% cheaper than standard, and it also means that by using our platform you are helping to reduce the number of unnecessary vehicle transporters on the roads.
Preparing For Your UTV To Be Moved
If you have selected a quote and company to move ahead with, there are some things you should do to prepare your UTV for pick-up:
Documents - If you are taking your UTV abroad or selling it then you might have to have some documents in order. We always encourage having these sorted and ready before your UTV is picked up to avoid any issues during transit.
Running Condition - If the UTV needs to be driven at any point during the journey then you should ensure that it has enough pressure in the tyres, enough charge in the battery and enough fluids.
Cleaning + Condition - Before you send your UTV off, you should ensure that you give it a clean and check over its physical condition. This will help ascertain whether any damage has occurred during transit.
Photographs - Once cleaning and checking condition is done, you should take some quality photographs of the UTV to provie its condition. These will be handy if any disputes arise upon delivery.
What To Do After Delivery
Once your UTV has been delivered, you should check:
Vital Signs - Ensure that the engine, the brakes, and the lights are operating as they were before pickup.
Exterior Condition - Use your photographs taken before pickup to compare the condition of the UTV. Should there be any issues or discrepancies, raise these immediately.
Check Mileage - In the case that your UTV was driven during transit, you should make sure that only the expected mileage has been driven.
Finally, we ask that you leave a review of your chosen UTV shipper so that future customers can know what to expect from them.
