Boat Hauling Trailer Transport Services

The specific shipping services needed for your boat-hauling trailer depend on a few basic facts about its size. The height, weight, and width of your trailer will determine exactly what transport services will be necessary. For example, if your boat-hauling trailer exceeds the allowable height limit for transport, you will require an escort. When you trust the shipping experts at Heavy Haulers, you won't have to worry about what permits are needed and whether you need an escort. We will take care of all that and more. You will be in continuous contact with your transport team, so there won't be any surprises while your boat-hauling trailer is en route.

Shipping a Large Boat

It’s no secret boats come in all shapes and sizes, from small fishing boats to oversize yachts. When you need to ship a large boat, different factors may come into play. If it doesn’t fit standard dimensions, it becomes an oversize or wide load. Large boat transport in this area requires extra paperwork and permits for transport. If you need loading assistance, such as cranes, Heavy Haulers can provide that for you. We make sure to pair you with a driver that has experience in shipping large boats, so that you’re confident in the transport. Making sure to plan out the best route ahead of time is essential. This way, any hazards, such as low bridges, and high tolls can be avoided. Shipping large boats requires extra attention to detail, and at Heavy Haulers, we always provide. Call now! (800) 908-6206

Boat Transport 101: Shipping Costs, Permits, and More

Determining the best boat transport options for you is based on many things. What kind of boat are you shipping? Where are you shipping it to? When do you need the boat delivered? Are there tolls involved? All those questions and more need to be answered when you’re transporting a boat. Each of these factors go into the cost of shipping a boat. A shorter boat transport will be less than a cross-country boat haul. If your boat is considered oversize, like say a yacht, then specialty permits and routes will need to be established. When you call Heavy Haulers one of our transportation specialists will gather all the necessary information. Then, they’ll put together a custom boat shipping solution that’s tailored to fit your needs. We make sure to provide a quality boat shipping experience for every client. Call now! (754) 732-0936

Shipping a boat and trailer on a flatbed

What is the Cost of Shipping a Boat?

The cost of shipping a boat varies based on several factors. These include the height, weight, and length of your boat. The larger and heavier the boat, the higher the shipping cost. For instance, shipping a dinghy is likely to be cheaper than transporting a super yacht. Distance also determines the price of boat transport. Shorter boat hauls need less gas and may not have as many tolls. If a large boat is an oversize load, their will be extra permits and paperwork required. This can also up the costs of shipping a boat. The best way to determine your transport costs is to speak with a Heavy Haulers transport specialist. We will provide a custom boat shipping solution that fits both your needs and your budget. Call now! (754) 732-0936
