Easy & Affordable ATV Shipping
If you are shipping one or more ATVs a long distance, you’ll want to keep your all-terrain vehicles safe and secure inside the fully enclosed dry van of an LTL (less-than-truckload) freight carrier.
How Do You Prepare an ATV for LTL Shipping?
Preparation for shipping an ATV varies by carrier.
- Some carriers will take the ATV as is and roll it onto the truck
- Some carriers will insist that an ATV be strapped onto a pallet so it can be moved by forklift at the terminal
- Some carriers will not carry an ATV unless it is in a crate
So, should you start calling freight carriers and asking them about their ATV restrictions? No need. The experts at FreightCenter have that info at their fingertips. Here’s what you should do.
How to Compare LTL Freight Shipping Costs From Trusted Carriers When Shipping ATVs
Use FreightCenter’s instant freight quote tool to get quotes and estimated transit times from multiple carriers. Call FreightCenter at 800.716.7608 and ask a National Account Manager about the preparation required by the carrier that appeals to you the most, as well as those of several other carriers on your list.
Weight is an important factor in determining shipping costs, so remember that an ATV on a pallet will weigh more than just the ATV, and that weight will be increased even more by crating.
Depending on demand and ATV preparation conditions, the carrier that is right for you might surprise you.
One thing that won’t ever surprise you is that FreightCenter will help you find the right carrier without you having to make a lot of inquiries.
