Sailboat Transport with the uShip Marketplace
"Thanks to uShip..."

We used uShip to get our new (to us) Colgate 26 delivered from Seattle for a reasonable price in time for the peak summer sailing season. Thanks to uShip and DNR transport, Sail Chicago's students and members have another great boat to sail on for the 2012 season.

"..exactly what I wanted..."

Excellent service and great to work with. I got exactly what I wanted and paid for. Would definitely use again.

Preparing a Sailboat for Shipment

With the right prep and know-how, transporting a sailboat can be much less complicated than expected. It's best to begin planning the shipment of your sailboat around a month ahead of time. By doing so, you'll have enough time to review your options on sailboat trailer options, choosing your sailboat carrier, shopping for quotes, and how to best prepare your sailboat for pickup.

Around two weeks from your desired shipping date, find and hire your desired sailboat carrier and arrange the pickup time. If you're shipping your sailboat overseas you need to give the carrier some more time to properly research pricing and time frames.

It's importnat that you have some measurements of your sailboat prepared so that you receive a more accurate quote from your sailboat carrier. It is important to gather precise measurements when measuring your sailboat to ensure proper transportation and eliminate costly fees.

Make sure to prepare your sailboat by removing any items that are within the boat that can be lost, moved, or damaged. A good idea would be to talk to a good marina in your are for further preprations for transporting a sailboat.. Before you give your sailboat over to your transporter, make sure you know what to expect. You can rest assured that if you take the time to prepare your boat and communicate with your sailboat transporter, your sailboat will arrive safely at its new destination.
