How Long Will My Boat’s Transport Take?

How Long Will My Boat’s Transport Take?

Shipping a boat is a process that isn’t simple to put a timeframe on. Nonetheless, it is okay to assume that a coast to coast transport will take about two weeks or so, depending. A1 Auto Transport does their best to accommodate the time concerns of all shipping customers trying to transport their boat.

If you are shipping a boat from state to state or city to city, obviously it will take less than two weeks to get there. Shipping a boat internationally, however will likely take more time. Complying with foreign import policies and making sure everything is approved by Customs is a process all in its self. Aside from that, overseas and ground delivery methods are likely necessary, making the trip anywhere from two weeks to four weeks in most cases.
