What is the Boat Shipping In A Container?
Now, the truth is that those who have the privilege of owning a boat are certainly wealthy enough, considering the luxury that this is. The majority of boat owners have some sort of transport on their own which allows them to move the boat from the water to the garage.
Now, the A-1 Auto Transport Company is a full-service international as well as domestic shipping agency which has delivered vehicles and boats to all corners of the planet. We have more than two decades of professional experience and we deliver high end boat shipping in container services at reasonable and competitive prices, regardless of your end destination. We have transported an array of ships, boats as well as other watercraft such as yachts, sport fishing boats, motorboats. With constant checks on the transportation anywhere in the world, you can track your cargo with ease.
We use container shipping of your boat when it’s too wide to actually be rolled inside the shipping container. We are going to turn it on the side and load it inside a 40 HC container with advanced tilt methodology and a custom built shipping cradle. All the liquids are thoroughly drained.
There are a few different ways to ship a boat from the US to any part of the world, especially if your boat has a width of less than 2.59 meters and it’s less than 36’ in length. Some of them have proven to be more effective than others. The most economical way has proven to be shipping the boats within a container but if the width of the boat is over 2.59 meters then this becomes a challenging task. We have a lot of years of professional experience and your boat is in the safest possible hands, regardless of the size of your boat.
We are capable of loading your boat in the container on an angle thanks to our specifically custom-built steel shipping cradle which is designed to fit the specifications of your boat. We can accommodate boat shipping in a container by putting large powerboats inside shipping containers. We use specialized security techniques which are designed to keep your boat in place throughout the entire shipping.
- You can load a few smaller boats in one container in order to lower the expenses.
- You can load all personal belongings in the container as well.
- The cost can be cheaper as it’s going to affect the loading and unloading but not the cost of the container itself.
- You have more control over the people who are handling your boat as the loading and the unloading are thoroughly contracted by the forwarder of the freight instead of the port company, which is definitely beneficial.
You can trust A-1 Auto Transport service to do a great job, as we have done for countless other clients before you.
