How uShip Works
"Very professional, highly recommended."

uShip was an easy service to use, I had never heard of this type of service before, but everything from the time I signed up to the time my boat was delivered was very enjoyable. My shipper whom I chose from the people bidding on my transport request was fantastic to deal with and delivered my boat on time and was well taken care of. I would thoroughly recommend Tezza if anyone chooses to use his transport service in the future, I myself will use him again if I ever require this type of transport service again. Very professional, highly recommended.

“uShip was easy to use and we had plenty of quotes to choose from.”

We had a new boat transferred from the Gold Coast to Perth as this was the only boat of this sort left in Australia. uShip was easy to use and we had plenty of quotes to choose from. Website was easy to use. Service provider did a great job. Hope not to have to use uShip again but if the need came up, would definitely go straight to uShip.

Once you’ve made the decision to move your boat, you can relieve yourself the stresses of finding a reliable and safe boat carrier by using uShip. While there are a few unique things to take into consideration when transporting a boat, we’ll help you along the way!

We suggest you begin the planning process for boat transportation at least a month before your collection date. You will want time to research your options for boat trailers, to choose a boat transport company, to shop for quotes and to best prepare your boat for collection. It’s advised to hire your boat transporter and confirm collection and delivery dates at least two weeks prior to collection date.

For international boat transport, you may need to give more time for boat haulage companies to provide you with the best quotes. Gather your boat measurements before listing. It is important to be precise when measuring your boat to ensure proper transportation and eliminate costly fees. With this information, a boat carrier can provide a quote for boat delivery service that includes licenses and permits, if needed.

Build a fully-detailed listing. Include measurements and photos, listing any special requirements your boat transport may have to get the best responses for your boat haulage.


After contracting a boat carrier, you will need to prepare your boat for delivery. Secure any loose items and take all precautions to avoid travel damage. You may reach out to your marina or boatyard for specific questions on how to prepare a boat for transport. Make sure you know what to expect from the boat transport service before collection. If you take the time to prepare your boat and communicate with your boat hauler, your boat will arrive safely at its new destination.
