Delivery time

Well, it has been a long 8 weeks since I first spoke with Escape re: ordering a new 19'. Originally I had planned on driving out in 4 and back in 6 days to pick it up in Chilliwack from here in Pennsylvania. Since then another delivery came about to the East coast so my trailer is being delivered to Raleigh, NC, about 6 hours away. Between the cost of gas estimate and the fires out west, I think this was the best option. It is expected to be completed 7/9.
My question to those who had deliveries, how long did it take from the date it was completed before delivery. Particularly to those in Texas, which distance is probably 2/3 of what it will be here, but it will give me a starting estimate day. If you are 2000 miles, did it take 4 days, 5 days or what?
Thanks for any help.

Re: Delivery time

Hi: cpaharley2008... It's really hard to plan the ETA as I know from past ones that safe delivery is paramount in Tammys instructions for the driver. You don't want a slightly roasted or melted trailer I'm sure. Once the load is on the road I'm certain Tammy will email you with a fairly accurate ETA. Alf

Re: Delivery time

We had our delivered to Saulte St Marie, Ont and it took the driver seven (7) days of drive time. It was early May and there were a number of snow days on his cross Canada route, not sure how those affected timing. There probably will only be a single driver so he/she will be restricted as to drive time.

I think coming across the US, which I assume they will do, will speed driving time. Google the drive time on Google maps and divide the total drive time by 11 to get the number of days. In the US the driver can only work 70 hours in 8 consecutive days, that rule may add another day to transit time.

Who is the shipper? Let It Ride Carriers?

I do not know the shipper, the driver is named Dave-the number of hours is 46-48 so 5 days is the correct estimate? So that would mean the 14th if they leave on the 9th.

Re: Delivery time

Although I am in TX I had mine delivered to SO Cal with another unit. IIRC the drive time was about 2 1/2 days. As Paul mentioned the drivers are limited by hours but also remember that time is money to these guys so they will make it you ASAP. Once on the road Tammy or the trucking company will give you a good estimate to time.
