Used Trailer Delivery?

Newby searching for my new home. Plan on planting it in central Florida for the first year or so. My question is this: Once I find it and work out a deal, what are some of my options for getting it here? I don't plan to tackle the purchase of a tow vehicle for 10-12 months.

Most of the RV insurance companies have bonded haulers that may subcontract to haul it, your seller may deliever as part of the deal, you could rent a larger U haul and haul it yourself, or contact a Hot Shot broker.

In any case you had better consider the cost of transportation before saying yes to any deal if you can't move it yourself.

We just purchased a used 25' trailer. It was in Texas and we needed it delivered to California. We used UShip
They were great.

Uship is kind of hit or miss and completely depends on the integrity of the shipper you choose. It can be great but I had an unbelievably bad experience with uship and found that uship can not intervene in any meaningful way when, for example, your Airstream and the shipper are MIA somewhere between Maine and California. Really do your homework on the shipper you're considering on uship, really check references, etc. and it might save you heartache down the road.

I agree. We had multiple bids and did not go with the least expensive--we chose the one with the best feedback and then followed that up with some interviews.
