Boat transport

Among other things, our company transports boats and ships. In addition, we provide shrink wrapping, roll-on/roll-off, overland transportation, international yacht transportation, and full-service moving.

Powerboat shipping

Shipping your powerboat smoothly is possible if you keep the small details in mind. Considering you are more familiar with your powerboat, you must prepare it before pickup. Our staff will handle the other details, but you must prepare your boat before we pick it up.

Keeping the bottom of your vessel clean is essential. The movement of plants and organisms is restricted in some states, so grass and life forms must be removed from your boat.

Sailboat transport

Louisiana Boat Transportation Servicess

A sailboat shipment requires specialized knowledge, so professionals should only handle it. After hauling out your sailboat, remove all lights, winches, wind indicators, and rigging. These points are prone to chafing. You do not need to attach your mast when transporting your boat on a trailer.

Your sailboats will be safe in our hands, thanks to our experience moving sailboats.

Yacht shipping

Most yachts are larger than 14' wide and 14' tall and weigh more than 40,000 pounds. There is a slight difference in transporting yachts compared to transporting smaller boats.

With our expertise in shipping oversized boats, you can rest assured that we can handle the shipping of your yacht.

Small boat transport

Small boats can be transported by trailer, over land, on their bottom, or on a yacht transport ship. Transporting boats on their own trailers is less expensive.

International Boat Shipping

Shipping a boat or yacht abroad is more expensive. Compared to sending it within the country, the process is more rigorous. For customs clearance, it is necessary to gather all required documentation.

You can get help with this process from our company's customs experts.

Container Boat Shipping

You can also ship your boat overseas as freight on a cargo ship.

  • Distance - Mileage and its types, like overland, on the keel, and waterborne, can affect shipping costs.

How to Prepare a Boat for Shipping Louisiana?

Preparing your boat thoroughly before shipping it will prevent it from being damaged. It is generally not the shipping company's responsibility to prepare your boat correctly, so they are not liable for any damage caused by improper preparation. There is no technical expertise or experience required for preparation.

To make things easier for you, we have outlined the process below.

  • Lock the cabinets and cabins, and keep the key. Secure all windows, doors, and hatches.
  • Empty all tanks. Remove water and fuel, and also the hull's drain plugs. Pumps, water systems, and air conditioners should be drained of all fluids.
  • Take the anchors off the deck.
  • Batteries, electronic components, and alarms should be disconnected and secured.
  • You can coat your wooden boat with linseed oil to prevent it from drying out, but it may cause dirt to accumulate on the road.
  • Remove and store loose items, including propellers, anchors, flag masts, antennas, electronics, and valuables.
  • Take accurate measurements of your boat. Check the information on how to measure your boat here.

A-1 Auto Transport is the best company to ship your boat. We have experienced boat movers and boat haulers to handle your shipment, and ensure that you have your boat delivered timely and in the best condition. Make a reservation or request a boat shipping quote by calling 1-888-230-9116. For more information, please visit our website.

★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
