Planning Your Boat Moveg

Proper preparation of your boat for transport requires careful planning and attention to detail on both the part of the owner and the boat Shipperinvolved. Proper preparation of the boat for Transport is YOUR responsibility. Boat Shipping companies like Auto Transporters Nationwide, do not typically prepare boats for transport. If your boat is not properly prepared for shipment, it will typically be transported “as is” and the boat carrier will not accept responsibility for any resulting damage. To make the transport as safe and efficient as possible, here are some things to think about:

  • Have the boat ready to load when the truck arrives at its scheduled time. Boat Shipping companies do their best to deliver the boat at the estimated time. However, this is an approximation due to the many factors beyond their control such as weather, traffic, permitted re-routes, and availability of marina operations for loading and offloading schedules.
  • The boat transporter will not be responsible for any damages caused by improper preparation.
  • The preparation of your boat for Shipping is key to the safe delivery of your boat to its destination. For example, if your boat is being moved at 60 miles per hour into a 14 mile per hour head wind, it is experiencing hurricane force conditions. Also, take in account any inclement weather that may be encountered en-route.

Choosing the Right Marina for Your Boat Transport

When choosing a marina for your boat make sure that they can assist you with the preparation of the boat for transport. They must have necessary equipment to load and offload your boat. They must have a service bay available for disassembly or reassembly. Also, make sure that the facility has appropriate overhead clearance.

Measuring Your Boat for Transport

When requesting a quote from Auto Transporters Nationwide to transport your boat, the dimensions are extremely important. To receive the best possible price, please follow these guidelines for measuring your boat accurately.

Overall Length: Include bow pulpits, swim platforms, outboard motor brackets, outboard motors themselves (the length of the motors or out drives in the raised position). If on a trailer, include from the tip of the tongue to the end of the motor.

Overall Height: The maximum height of many overpasses is 13 feet 6 inches. Many oversized yachts require special low riding trailers called low boys. Boats with an overall height greater than 13.6’ loaded on the trailer require special handling and routing. It is critical to measure from the bottom of the keel to the highest non-removable part of the boat.

Overall Beam (Width): The beam of your boat is the measured as the widest point of the boat including anything attached to the boat. Boats wider than 8 feet 6 inches are regarded as oversize permitted loads and require state permits.
