Getting a boat shipped?

Recommended Posts

Smeltz

I am looking to get a boat shipped to northern Washington. Was wondering what are some out fits are. And what they would cost?

I have seen around 1.30-1.50 a mile for insured guys who will trailer it up there for you. I have used a similar service with good results. Only on the east coast though.

I have not actually used U-ship yet, but twice have gotten quotes and they were very reasonable, and the shippers themselves have reviews and you can communicate with them prior to signing up.

I bought a golf cart from someone down in Phoenix AZ & had it shipped to WA via a Uship carrier. The process was pretty painless & very reasonably priced. They asked questions about size & weight. I accepted a bid from a guy who was insured. He delivered a day later than he initially said, but he was in contact the whole time. He showed up towing 2 trailers (which isn't legal in WA) loaded with various bikes, ATVs & my cart. :rockon:

We used Uship as well for our boat. Has it shipped from AZ to IN, roughly 2,000 miles, without a problem. I would not hesitate to go that route again.

Do they tow the boat? How do they protect it?

We had ours trailered but I know martinarcher had his boat/trailer strapped on a large carrier. Pretty sure you can specify that you want it in an enclosed trailer as well if it will fit.

As far as protecting it, we had ours shrink wrapped but you want to be careful as far as how that is done. Otherwise, the shrink wrap can actually scratch the side of the boat because of the wind.

We used UShip from Las Vegas to Boise and they charged us 500 flat. He even stored it for me for 2 months until I came back from deployment for free

I used Uship to haul my boat from CA to MN and aside from the multiple flat tires, it worked well. I would have preferred that it was hauled on a flatbed, but I didn't want to spend the $1000-$1500 extra. FYI, I paid less than $1.00/mile to have it towed. I did have it shrink wrapped.
