Delivery tips

Does Escape provide any price reductions to piggy back with another customer on deliveries ?

Yes, they did do this for mine....if you can find someone else along your route the savings would be substantial.

I don't think so, Johnny. Our 19 came down from Chilliwack with another trailer that was delivered to Las Vegas on the way to us in Maricopa, AZ.

I suspect their reasonable rates take into consideration the shared transport aspect...but you could always ask, right?

Good luck!

Of course, if you buy several you may qualify for discounts aplenty! I got the impression that they were trying to schedule mine with another one and weren't about to send out a half-loaded semi.
As several have stated: YMMV

When I answered I meant where more than one trailer is dropped off. In my case the other owners took their delivery with mine as they lived nearby.

Whatever ETI did a year ago, a week ago, or yesterday, needs to be discussed with ETI, especially now that they are under new ownership.

They used to do that, and we had a shared delivery in 2018 and our cost for delivery was more than they charge for delivery now without.

They have a different company doing the deliveries and have better rates than they used to. I think Escape is basically combining shipments and giving everyone a better rate.

Exactly. I believe that pre-Covid and closed border, delivery was a relatively rare thing, and fairly expensive. With the border being closed, Escape came up with delivery rates that were unbelievable - my trailer was delivered to a spot 20 minutes away at a price that was under what it would cost me in gas to drive RT to Sumas, which is about 7 hours from my home. I haven't paid close attention, but they have now switched to delivery to designated hubs, and at a price that is higher than it was. Who knows when or how it will change again.

Speaking of tips, I provided some to our driver as a way for expressing our gratitude for safe delivery. After spending 4-5 days on the road, a nice restaurant meal vs fast food I'm sure was enjoyable.....

I have been told by ETI current delivery rates are good through the end of the year.
