Here are our top precautions to check off before you use our caravan transportation services:

  • Make sure you’ve fastened any latches or locks on your caravan’s doors, windows and cupboards. If locks are broken or they don’t have one, be sure to tape them shut.
  • Remember to disconnect any power supplies or gas lines you might have in your caravan.
  • Take a look around your caravan shipment to check that there aren’t any loose items that could move around en route.
  • Ensure the weight is distributed heavily and is not too front/rear end heavy


Preparing the Outside Of Your Caravan for Shipping 

The next step for your sea transport order is to make sure the outside of your vehicle is ready for caravan transportation.

Here are the essentials to check before you book with your sea shipping provider:

  • Ensure that you’ve turned off your turn signals and indicator lights and check that your parking brakes are working.
  • Before moving your motorhome via sea freight, do a once over to secure any exterior doors, chains, slide outs and any other parts that may move in transit.
  • Ensure that the tow hitches/tow bars are in good working order an secured safely


Mechanical Preparations for Caravan Transportation

Once the physical parts of your motor home are ready for cargo shipping, you should also check your vehicle’s fluid levels for any leaks. This includes your engine oil and transmission fluid.

You also need to remember to secure your tow bar if your vehicle features this attachment and inspect the battery before it is ready for caravan transportation.


Safety Precautions for Shipping a Caravan 

Once you’re ready for your vehicle to get out on the road, there are just a few final things to remember to pass on to your hauliers.

  • Our sea freight team will need to have access to keys for your vehicle and know any operating requirements that may be specific to your mobile home.
  • Your tyres must be checked for pressure and quality to ensure that the vehicle will be able to travel safely onboard our freight vessels.
