Services and Expenses

When choosing a service for boat transport and hauling, consider the following items:

  • Contact a referral service that will get you multiple quotes on your moving needs.
  • Go with a service that has a good track record and positive testimonials from clientele.

It can be quite expensive to move your boat, especially if you have to transport it by air or a long distance on land. Details that will determine the price for the hauling of your boat are:

  • the material your hull is made out of (such as aluminum, composite, wood, steel or fiberglass)
  • the length of your boat
  • the make and category,i.e., brand name and whether it’s a power or sail boat
  • the value of the vessel
  • the mast heights
  • Whether there’s a trailer to be moved as well
  • if you have an inboard, outboard, or combination engine
  • The distance your boat will have to travel

If you are not in need of boat transportation professionally but want to transport your own boat, you need a boat trailer.

  • To haul your boat with you, you will either need a basic trailer that can carry many types of boats or a custom trailer.

  • Whether you need brake lights and a license plate for your boat trailer will depend upon the size of the boat you are hauling as well as the type of vehicle you are using.

  • There are local transportation laws that will apply to your situation as well.

Whether shipping a boat domestically or internationally or being able to take your own boat from storage to a launch, you need to take this information into consideration for your overall boating budget. The affordability of buying a new or used boat will also depend on how much
it costs you to receive your boat via boat transport and hauling services. Be informed by weighing your options!
