What should you pay attention to when hiring a company to transport your boat?
It’s important to verify the costs for all services. Make sure there are no hidden fees or markups. Check that there aren’t too many administrative or miscellaneous fees. These can add up quickly and you don’t want to be surprised at the end of your trip.
If you are shipping multiple vehicles, ask if there is a bulk discount. Oftentimes, we can offer discounts because we can plan routes more efficiently if moving more than one vehicle.

How will my watercraft or trailer be transported?
Boats and watercraft can be transported by truck. We can tow the trailer (with the boat loaded) or load the boat and trailer on a flat-deck trailer.
This is a special type of “low-boy” trailer that can be used to move large boats without being too tall and requiring special permits.
When shipping your boat, you will have to decide if you want the boat on a trailer or not. If you have a trailer, the boat will be securely strapped to it at all times while in transit.
