Preparations for Shipping

Shipping a boat or recreational watercraft vehicle is a bit more involved when compared to your average passenger vehicle. For example: not all boats are built the same, so the specific dimensions and measurements of your boat, including full length and height, are imperative to a safe and expedient delivery. Following these easy steps will make the otherwise time-consuming nature of pickup and delivery all that much smoother of a process. First, record the measurements of your boat and take pictures along the exterior and interior. While preparing for transportation, it may be necessary for the boat to be partly disassembled for safety.

An additional precautionary reason for taking pictures is that, in the event of any damage incurred by your vehicle mid-transit, said damage can be easily verified upon delivery and allow you to be qualified for reimbursement. Some states require high poles or even an escort for transportation. If you are unable to prepare your boat, you can hire someone qualified at the boat yard to do so. Otherwise many times, if you’re boat is not prepared or oversized, transporters will attempt to ship it as is, which can result in damage or cause a major delay.
