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!
HOW MUCH DOES BOAT TRANSPORT COST?

On average, boat transport services cost A$3.59 per kilometer for boat delivery less than 100 kilometers and A$1.24 per kilometer for boat delivery less than 1000 kilometers.

CREATE YOUR BOAT DELIVERY LISTING WITH USHIP
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.
BOAT DELIVERY PREPARATION
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.
