Frequently Asked Questions

Even more daunting is the fact that this may be the first time you have shipped a vehicle from abroad. So, do you trust the shipper you are about to use is one of the better ones? Or look a little closer and make sure it’s one of the very best. Looking, in fact beneath the surface is clearly worth the effort and will not take long. In fact, if you like you can start right now.
Q. Worried about legitimacy of the caravan you are looking to purchase?
We have multiple contacts in the UK, the US and Australia. We can put you in touch with people who can inspect the vans and check them over for legitimacy.
Q. Can I load other items in my caravan?
Yes, but these must be declared and appropriate receipts must be supplied.
Q. Can you arrange insurance?
Yes, we offer full cover on all caravans and accessories.

Yes. We have numerous methods and systems depending on which part of the USA your 5th wheel is purchased from.
