Moving a boat is easy as long as you are prepared. When you make the decision to transport your boat, give yourself plenty of time to get it ready. It is recommended that you begin planning at least a month in advance so that you can select a quality boat transporter. You will need to inform the courier if you have a trailer or if you require one and information about your boats towing limitations. You should hire a boat transporter no later than two weeks before you need it moved.
You will need to have accurate and precise measurements of your boat before you can begin getting transportation quotes. This information will help the transporter provide an accurate quote that includes any special permits or licenses required.
When choosing a boat delivery service, look for testimonials and feedback from customers who have used them in the past, as well as legal authority and insurance. It is advised that you ask the transporter questions about their experience of transportation and boat delivery history. Finding a quality boat transport company is the key to having your boat delivered safely and on time.
Once you have hired your boat transporter, you can begin preparing your boat for delivery. You will need to secure or remove loose items, advise the transporter of power connections to your trailer and take special precautions to avoid damage to your boat during transport. Consult with your boatyard or marina for any special instructions or to answer questions you may have.
