How the Cost of Shipping a Boat Is Calculated
There are several details that must be shared with the transporter and other things that they must consider before they can give you an accurate quote on boat shipping services. Most boat shipping companies come up with a total cost that’s based on the same criteria.
- The boat’s make and model
- The boat’s age, dimensions and weight
- The distance the transporter must travel to deliver the vessel
- The shipping services being used to deliver the boat
- The cost of fuel and other relevant transport resources at the time of the transport
- The time of year or season might affect the price of delivery, depending on the chosen shipping services
Once the boat shipping company has the information they need, they’ll go ahead and calculate a total for your boat’s shipping services. Try to gather quotes from several transporters before deciding to hire someone to trust your boat with.
