When you’re moving a boat you sold, just purchased, or want to have the boat at your summer rental when you get there, you may need to transport the boat over land to get it there. Chances are, your boat may be traveling interstate to get there. There are a few things to know when transporting your boat trailer interstate.
Interstate Trailer Boat Transport Requirements
Interstate boat transport requires a little more detail than moving a boat just over to the lake or another city. uShip carriers specialize in over-the-road transport of sailboats to power boats to yachts, so they know the best ways to transport trailered boats interstate.
When finding a boat shipping company, be sure to look for an MC number (motor carrier number) and a DOT number. You can then verify the carrier and the amount of liability and cargo insurance they carry for boat transport through the FMCSA’s SAFER Company Snapshot.
