Your off-road vehicle was meant to be driven hard, driven often and driven over punishing terrain. You don’t intend to take it easy or choose forgiving routes – which is the whole point if you own a customized rig that’s designed to chew through whatever you throw at it.
Yet, with this type of take charge attitude, your vehicle may need attention from a qualified mechanic from time to time. While this is to be expected, you may be wondering what the most convenient, economical and fastest way to get your vehicle to Dixie 4 Wheel Drive is. When it comes to transporting off road vehicles to shops for work, you can either choose to bring it yourself or simply hire out this job instead.
While there are pros and cons of each approach, having your vehicle shipped to us has many advantages.
Advantage #1: It’s Convenient.
Your local mechanic is unlikely to have the expertise in building, modifying and repairing off road vehicles necessary to do the job right. This is the reason we often see customers come from miles around to our shop. We have the qualified mechanics that you need, to ensure that the job is done right the first time.
Yet, taking the time out of your busy schedule to load your off-road rig onto a trailer and haul it to a shop out of town, can be a major hassle. The good news is, paying a reasonable rate to have your vehicle transported for you, can help you avoid an entire day spent driving to and from our shop.
This approach is especially useful if you only have weekends free, as it means your off-road vehicle can be repaired during the week – and then be back in your driveway ready to go when Saturday rolls around.
Advantage #2: It’s Economical.
You may assume that transporting off road vehicles to shops for work is too pricey, but this can actually be an economical option. When you consider the price of fuel these days, wear and tear on the road legal vehicle doing the hauling and the fact that you’ll need a sizable trailer – the out-of-pocket costs can add up.
Many auto transporters charge a simple flat rate of just $1 per mile for transportation services. This makes shipping your off-road vehicle down to our shop affordable, and calculating the price is straightforward. No hidden fees here or hard-to-understand price tables.
Advantage #3: No Special Equipment Needed.
As already mentioned, if you want to bring your off-road rig to our shop yourself – you’ll need a road-worthy trailer and a vehicle to haul it. If you regularly take your off-road vehicle to destinations outside your local area, you may already have this equipment.
However, if you just use it around your own home, you may not have the equipment necessary to get the job done. While trying to rent this equipment or borrow it from a friend is a possible option, having us take care of it for you is an easier and faster solution.
Advantage #4: Perfect For Out-of-Town Purchases.
You may not be bringing us an off-road vehicle in need of repairs, but a new purchase that needs major modifications instead. We often work on factory stock cars that have been bought at a dealership, and then shipped directly to us by the customer. We then outfit it with aftermarket parts or even do an extensive rebuilding.
If this describes your situation, you may have purchased a vehicle from a dealership (or private owner) from out of town. Rather than driving down to collect the vehicle, and then driving even farther to bring it to Dixie 4 Wheel Drive – consider having it transported for you.
Transporting off road vehicles to shops for work can be time-consuming, expensive, require special equipment or just call for too much travel on your part. If that’s the case, you now have a solid option, as Dixie 4 Wheel Drive is happy to take on this task for you. Our transportation experts will carefully load, secure and drive your vehicle down to our shop – all for a low per mile charge.
This enables you to get your project moving forward immediately, without having to take any valuable time out of your schedule.
