Door To Door Boat and Yacht Shipping

Boats come in all shapes and sizes, which can make it a challenge to offer general advice on shipping them. For example, transporting a small fishing boat is an entirely different job than shipping a cruising yacht, even if the process is more or less the same. When it comes to cost considerations, larger and heavier watercraft naturally cost more to ship than smaller vessels.

For door-to-door boat shipping, things can get a little tricky, especially if the delivery truck has to navigate tight spaces to get to the delivery location, whether a street address or local harbor. As you might expect, door to door transport of a boat comes at a slightly higher cost than shipment between two transport terminals. With the latter method, you must retrieve the boat yourself from the delivery location, which is usually in the largest major city or metro area. With door-to-door shipping, your boat is picked up and delivered from the exact locations you specify.

Planning Your Boat Transport

Prior to contacting a company and inquiring about the cost of shipping a boat, you’ll need to gather some information. This includes the type and dimensions of the boat, the location and destination, and timeframe for delivery.

There are some other preparations you’ll have to make as well, such as cleaning the boat and removing any non-permanent components. Asking about what sort of pre-shipping requirements you’ll need to meet is a good way to determine if a shipper is experienced and professional. Most companies should also have some information on the website about the preparation process (you can find ours by clicking here).

Getting An Estimate For Door To Door Boat Transport

Getting a price quote is not particularly complicated, but there are a some things you can do to make the process easier. As mentioned above, the first order of business should be gathering all the information, both about your boat and its destination. Once you have everything you need, you can start researching companies, either online, in person, word of mouth recommendation, or even the local phone book.

It’s best to get a handful of estimates--usually between 3 to 5--from competing shippers so you can get a feel for the price range and what services are included. One thing to note about door-to-door boat transport is that you should mention the door-to-door aspect when getting the estimate. It is considered a specialty service that priced a little higher than standard boat shipping so it’s important to specify in order to get the most accurate cost estimates.
