There are two main options when organising caravan transport: These are caravan transport by towing, or caravan haulage, the most suitable of which will depend on the size and type of caravan. This article is designed to give you an overview of the different options available and the key points to consider when organising the transportation of your caravan, motor home or camper van.
Caravan delivery by towing is regarded as the cheapest type of caravan transport and involves securing the caravan to a suitable sized trailer for transport to its destination. The maximum sizes for caravan delivery by towing are:
• Maximum length: 7.0 metres
• Maximum width: 2.3 metres
• Maximum length: 12.00 metres
• Maximum width: 2.55 metres
• Length of vehicle and trailer combined: 18.00 metres
• Maximum overhang from rear of trailer: 3.05 metres
For the transport of larger static caravans or motor homes a specialist caravan haulage company will be required.
Caravan haulage is predominantly applied to static caravans although mobile caravans are often transported in this way for convenience. Specialised caravan transport companies with 16.5 mt vehicles can transport the maximum length static caravans. Caravan transport quotes are normally on roadside to roadside service.
Static caravan transport will normally require a wide load escort, which is required for any loads which are over 12 ft wide. Police clearance for such escorts is compulsory however your chosen vehicle delivery company should be able to advise you further regards your caravan transport.
Professional caravan transporters will be fully experienced in caravan deliveries and will be well aware of the relevant legislation and can advise you on the best form of delivery, however always check what insurance cover is provided and the procedures in the event of a claim.
