RV Driveaway Jobs
In the auto transport industry, there are more things than just personal cars or trucks that need to be moved. RVs are extremely popular now, with everyone wanting to be able to pack up and go at any time.
The camping industry has boomed, and the number of people who own RVs has also grown. Therefore, RV transport is also a huge industry.
RV transport jobs require you to drive an RV from point A to point B. This can happen in any number of ways. The vast majority of RV Transport jobs require you as a driver to pick up an RV from a consumer, and then to load the RV onto a truck, where it then rides until you reach the final destination.
Once there, you will unload the RV. In a very few, and private, RV transport industries, some jobs require a person to drive an RV from one place to another for the consumer. Most of the time, with RV transport, a person wants to have their RV moved because they themselves are moving and need the RV to arrive at their new home. However, RV transport jobs are also undertaken because a person is selling an RV and it needs to arrive at its own new home, or a person has purchased an RV and needs it to be brought to them. Also, some RV retailers rely on RV transport to get new RVs into their own lots so they can be sold. No matter what reason the RV must be moved, it is the job of the RV transport driver to do so.
The first part of the RV transport job is to make sure that you have all of the equipment and paperwork necessary to be employed. Some RV transport jobs require you to have your own truck, and some have trucks that you rent, lease, or use from the company. All of the RV transport jobs require that you have experience with auto or RV transporting, and also experience driving large trucks.
RV transport jobs will also usually require the right type of licenses, the right type of identification, and the right type of training.
After you have been employed by an RV transport company, your work will begin. You will be given appointments and routes by the dispatcher. At the appointed time, you will arrive to pick up the RV. Sometimes, the dispatcher will tell you exactly when and where to meet the RV and the consumer. Other times, the dispatcher will give you the consumer’s information and you will be responsible for making arrangements to meet them.
At this point the RV will be inspected. You and the owner (or the person responsible for sending the RV with you) should go over the RV from top to bottom and make sure that any damage to the RV is documented carefully. This is very important so that you can prove you did not allow any damage to happen to the RV while it was on your truck. After it is inspected, you will load the RV onto your truck, and travel to the RV’s final destination. At the arranged time, you will drop off the RV and the consumer on that end will help you inspect the RV to make sure that the damage matches the information that you filled out before you began.
RV Transport jobs can take you all over the country, as well as to other countries. It might be a life on the road, but it will also be a very interesting life for you.
