How Much to Ship a Boat and Trailer?
All professional transport companies keep their rates set affordably. The high demand for transport services allows them to maintain such low prices. No matter how cheap the quote you’re given, you can expect that your boat and trailer are handled with nothing but care and caution. To give you some idea of the average cost for shipping a boat and trailer, a cross country relocation may be anywhere from a few thousand dollars to $10,000.
Call the shipping companies to get estimates on their boat shipping services. Calling in is more personable and it gives you the opportunity to ask questions. Any longstanding transporter will have responsive, well-educated customer service reps taking phone calls. They should even have the ability to customize your transport. Unfortunately, over the phone quotes are not always the honest cost of services. Until the boat and trailer are weighed and all shipping services are decided on, the transporter cannot give an exact cost.
Boat and Trailer Shipping Services
- Roll On /Roll Off– The boat is secured to its trailer and wheeled onto the transport carrier of choice where it is secured for its travels. After reaching its delivery address, the boat is wheeled off the carrier still attached to the trailer.
- Overland Transport– Your boat is transported by a truck. This is a very popular service among boat transport customers. It is also inexpensive and a great way to ship a boat and trailer together.
- Door to Door Delivery– The boat mover will send their professionals to the exact address of the boat’s storage location for its pickup, even if transshipment is necessary. They will then drop the boat off at its delivery address.
- Containerized Transport– This transport method is by far the safest for boats and other equipment. The boat and trailer cannot exceed 8ft wide and the boat mustn’t reach 8ft tall or over if it is to fit inside a shipping container. If you can use this method, your boat will have shelter from the potential dangers presented by the outdoors.
