When preparing to transport a boat give yourself ample time to complete to necessary steps. Begin planning at least a month before you want the boat delivered so have plenty of time to receive bids and to select your boat transporter. Hire a boat transporter no later than two weeks before the intended delivery date.
It is important to provide accurate measurements of your boat before you post it on the website to receive quotes. Precise measurements allow transporters to provide the most accurate quote and prepare for any permits or licenses needed for safe delivery.
Be sure and review customer feedback for each boat transporter. Also check and verify their insurance policy to make sure it is proper for your situation.
After you select your haulier it is time to prepare the boat for transport. Remove or secure loose items on the boat and follow any specific instructions provided by the boat transporter. Consult your boatyard or marina for any special instructions that would be important for the transporter to know.
