How Boat Shipping Works on uShip
First time using uShip and certainly wont be the last, this is an awesome service for anyone. I would not have been able to ship or transport my boat without uShip. Truly a great service. Jadeauto, the service provider, went above and beyond, just fantastic. Thank you.
John Picked up my boat in Oceanside, California and took it up the coast to Port Angeles, Washington during some of the worst rain storms in a while and was still ahead of schedule I would truly recommend him to anyone that was even a little bit skeptical Thanks

Preparing a Boat for Shipment

With the right knowledge and preparation, shipping a boat is simple. Although one would think that shipping a boat is just like car transport, there are a few unique things to consider. We suggest you begin the planning process for shipping your boat at least a month before your ship date. This will give you enough time to research your options on boat trailers, choosing a boat carrier, shopping for quotes, and how to best prepare your boat for pickup. You should hire your boat carrier and confirm pickup and drop off dates at least two weeks in advance. For international boat shipping you need to give more time for carriers to research quotes and for proper prepping of your boat for extended transport.

Before gathering boat transportation quotes, you will need to know a few boat measurements to receive an accurate estimate. It is important to gather precise measurements when measuring your boat to ensure proper transportation and eliminate costly fees. With this information, a boat transporter can provide a quote for boat shipping that includes licenses and permits.

After contracting with a boat transporter, you will need to prepare your boat for shipment. This includes securing any loose items and taking precautions to avoid travel damage. Consult your preferred marina or boat yard for specific questions on how to prepare a boat for transport. Before you hand your boat over to your movers, make sure you know what to expect from a boat transport service. You can rest assured that if you take the time to prepare your boat and communicate with your boat hauler, your boat will arrive safely at its new destination.
