"For this quality of service I would give both A++++++++++++"

This was my first experience with uShip. The process is straightforward and user friendly. Steve picked up the kayak from Oxford and delivered to Merseyside exactly as we had agreed. A kayak is not the easiest thing to transport and he took really good care of it. Steve is extremely professional and I will have no hesitation in using his service and uShip again. For this quality of service I would give both A++++++++++++

With the right knowledge and preparation, boat delivery can be simple. Although one may think that transporting a boat is just like car delivery, there are a few unique things to consider. Take a look at uShip's cost-to-ship index tool to view past boat transport transactions and familiarize yourself with uShip's process.


The cost for boat transport services varies based on the distance. On average boat transport services cost £1.49 per mile to move a boat 50 miles or more.


We suggest you begin the planning process for transporting your boat at least a month before your collection date. This will give you enough time to research your options on boat trailers, choosing a boat transport company, shopping for quotes and how to best prepare your boat for collection. You should hire your boat transporter and confirm collection and delivery dates at least two weeks in advance.

For international boat transport, you may need to give more time for couriers to provide you with the best quotes. You’ll also want to properly prepare your boat for the extended transport. Before gathering boat transportation quotes, you will need to know a few boat measurements to receive an accurate estimate. It is important to be precise when measuring your boat to ensure proper transportation and eliminate costly fees. With this information, a boat transporter can provide a quote for boat delivery service that includes licenses and permits as necessary.

The best way to receive the most accurate quotes from the most capable boat transporters is to build a fully-detailed listing. Include measurements and photos, listing any special requirements your boat transport may have.


After contracting a boat courier, you will need to prepare your boat for delivery. This includes securing any loose items and taking precautions to avoid travel damage. Consult your preferred marina or boatyard for specific questions on how to prepare a boat for transport. Before you hand your boat over to your transporters, make sure you know what to expect from their boat transport service. You can rest assured that if you take the time to prepare your boat and communicate with your boat mover, your boat will arrive safely at its new destination.
