The Benefit Of Transporting Off Road Vehicles To 4X4 Shops For Work

A 4×4 vehicle is designed to comfortably tackle technical maneuvers over the most unforgiving terrain. After all, what’s the point of owning an off-road machine if you’re not going to put it through its paces once in a while?

With such hard driving, breakdowns are inevitable and you’ll need the services a specialized off-road shop, like Dixie 4 Wheel Drive to get back on the road. However, you’ll first need to figure out the fastest, easiest and most affordable way to transport your vehicle to the specialized shop.

 

You have two options here: you can opt to drive your vehicle yourself or have it shipped to the shop instead.

 

While both options have their own advantages and disadvantages, getting someone to do all the heavy lifting does have some clear benefits. These include:

1.  The convenience.

Custom built 4x4s require special care and your local mechanic might just not be up to the task. This explains why clients nationwide opt to come to a specialized shop- they know they have the skills and tools to do an excellent job.

 

Unfortunately, you might not have the time to haul your rig to an out-of-town shop to get the repairs done. Instead, you can choose the convenience of having it transported to the shop. This way, they can work on your ride, complete the repairs and have it brought back to you in time for your next off-road adventure.

2.  It’s cost-effective to ship vehicles.

Think of all the costs you’ll incur while driving the vehicle to a specialized 4×4 shop yourself. You’ll have to pay for meals, fuel, and accommodation along the way, not to mention the additional wear and tear your vehicle will sustain. The costs can quickly add up.

 

By contrast, shipping your 4×4 down to our shop saves you money. Auto transporters like us charge an affordable standard rate per mile, with no hidden fees and they’ll give you a quote so you can get an idea of the shipping costs beforehand.

3.  It eliminates the hassle of looking for special equipment.

If you choose to bring your off-roader to a shop on your own, you’ll need to look for a trailer plus another vehicle to haul it here. This might not be a big deal if you have the equipment lying around but if not, you have to borrow or rent it. Why not save yourself the hassle and frustration by letting a professional take care of sourcing the trailer, loading and hauling your rig?

4.  It saves you from making roundabout trips.

Some off road enthusiast clients purchase stock 4 wheel drive vehicles then bring them to a speciality shop for custom 4×4 modifications and upgrades. Instead of making a circuitous trip to pick the car, drive it to the shop and then back home, why not let someone else handle the transportation?

 

We know just how hectic and expensive transporting your off-road vehicle to a 4×4 shop for work can be. That’s why many shops like Dixie 4 Wheel Drive are happy to make all the arrangements on your behalf so you can rest assured that your rig will be carefully, safely and securely loaded and transported to their shop at an affordable cost.
