The following information is an overview of everything you need to know about shipping your Razor or ATV.
What To Consider When Choosing A Carrier
Most things in life take some consideration, and choosing the right carrier for your ATV should too. These are the main things to consider before selecting a shipper:
- The company’s oversight
- Their track record
- What type of insurance policy do they provide?
- Do they have any feedback or references from past work?
It would help if you also were sure to discuss all custom requirements before deciding to move your ATV. And among the factors from our shortlist above, you should put insurance at the top of your considerations. You want your Razor to make it safely with no new damage occurring on the way. Be sure to weigh all insurance options and choose the coverage that best meets your needs. You may also inquire about taking out third-party insurance, as some carriers offer this option.
How To Prepare Your Polaris Razor Or ATV For Transport
It’s recommended that you take the proper precautions to ensure your ATV is ready for shipping when the carrier arrives. So, it’s essential to prepare your ATV as soon as you know it will be shipped. Here are some helpful tips to make your shipment go smoother:
- Wash and wipe down the entire ATV.
- Inspect it for dents, scratches, dings, and other types of existing damage.
- Document all damage, leaks, or mechanical issues your ATV may have.
- Check that all the lights work correctly.
- Take quality photos from every angle of your ATV.
- Remove all accessories and personal belongings when possible.
- Prepare all documentation required to move the ATV.
Polaris Razor Or Atv Shipping Options
Long Distance Towing offers different shipping options for ATVs. The two methods are open-air or enclosed transport. Both options have pros and cons, but the final decision depends on your wants and needs.
Open-air transport requires your ATV to be loaded onto an open trailer that’s exposed to the surroundings. This can pose a higher risk of your ATV sustaining damage caused by weather or road conditions during the trip. However, it is the cheapest shipping method for those thinking about being economical. The 2022 Polaris RZR Pro starts at $20,000 and can go up to $30,000+ with add-ons so a ton of our customers choose to ship the vehicle in one of our enclosed car haulers.
Alternatively, when you opt for enclosed transport, your ATV is loaded onto a closed trailer where the chances of sustaining damage are nearly zero. With this option, your Polaris Razor will be protected from all external elements during transit but is also the most expensive shipping method.
How Much Does It Cost To Ship A Polaris Razor Or ATV?
Much like car transport, the cost of shipping an ATV varies based on your timeframe, the shipping method, and total distance. It’s estimated that the cost to ship a Polaris Razor cross country is $890 on an open carrier and $1,190 in an enclosed trailer. Just keep in mind that these are cross-country estimates. The cost to ship an ATV locally or a shorter distance can be as low as $300. To get an accurate estimate, you should call us today and tell us what you need. We offer hassle-free pricing, and you don’t pay until your vehicle ships. Did we mention that we never have hidden fees? Ever!
How Long Does It Take To Ship A Polaris Razor Or ATV?
Once your ATV is picked up, it usually takes between three and seven days to reach its destination. However, if the distance is shorter, like going from Georgia to Florida, it would only take one or two days. A good rule of thumb to remember is that carriers can travel an average of 500 miles per day. So, you also may have to factor in for inclement weather, road closures, and traffic accidents.
In the end, the cost to ship a Polaris Razor or ATV is low when compared to all the expenses and things that can go wrong when trying to transport it yourself. Give us a call today to schedule your next ATV shipment!
