The Dodge Grand Caravan is a family-size minivan and has been in production since 1987. Sales of the Grand Caravan have remained strong since its introduction and today it is one of the most popular minivans on the market. Vehicle shipping companies know how to handle a Grand Caravan, so you shouldn’t run into any major complications when it comes to shipping it. If you’re buying one, this helpful vehicle shipping article will focus on the 2012 current models and their key features as well as what you can expect when it comes time to book transport with a vehicle shipping company to move it.
The current Grand Caravan comes in five different models, the AVP, SE, SXT, Crew and R/T. The AVP features a 24V 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine with 283-hp, an automatic transmission and 25-mpg highway, second-and-third-row Super Store’n’Go seats, ABS, electronic stability control, seven air bags, remote keyless entry, power windows, power locks and power mirrors. The SE features all that plus rear a/c and heat, sunscreen glass, body-color door handles and sill applique and a floor console with cup holders. The SXT features most of what the SE has as well as 16-inch aluminum wheels, power dual-sliding doors, a powered liftgate and powered pedals, a super-center console and stow’n’place roof rack, and an available rear DVD entertainment system. The Crew features 17-inch aluminum wheels, fog lamps, the Uconnect Touch Media Center with a 6.5-inch touchscreen, a security alarm, remote start system and a power liftgate. The R/T features unique 17-inch painted/polished aluminum wheels, unique black leather-trimmed seats with red-accent stitching, nine speakers, a subwoofer, a 506-watt amplifier, a security alarm, remote start system and a powered lift gate.
Though it’s a bit larger than the Journey, most vehicle shipping companies have been around the Grand Caravan a lot longer than the mid-size crossover SUV and as such typically don’t charge any additional overweight vehicle shipping fees to move it. It’s a commonly shipped vehicle and you shouldn’t have too many problems in terms of finding a good vehicle shipping company to haul it. The most important aspect of your vehicle shipping quotes will be the pickup and delivery locations. Vehicle shipping companies like to stick to heavily populated cities and oft-traveled interstate highways, so shipping from more remote locations can be pretty expensive. If you need door-to-door service it’s worth it, but if you’re trying to save a buck or two moving your pickup and delivery locations to easier-to-access cities might drop your vehicle shipping prices down a bit.
