How to prepare you boat for a safe boat transport.

Follow these steps:

Tires

Check each tire. You are looking for proper air pressure. The pressure should be located on each tire. If a tire on a boat trailer is not properly inflated, it can blow while in transport. When the temperature gets hot from driving on the tire while the tire pressure is low, the tire has a chance to instant expand air pressure causing the tire to burst. Look for dry rot. If a tire is old or has been sitting in area for a long time it may have dry rot causing the tire to be unsafe. If the tire has bad dry rot on it, then it is much safer to just replace the tire before having a transporter come out to pick up boat. In any case, it is always good to have a spare tire with the boat. If a tire goes bad a long the way, the driver will put your spare on. If no spare, we will buy a tire and put it on. You would only have to reimburse the driver for the tire.

Bearings

Every wheel on a boat trailer will have bearings. If the bearings are not properly greased, then the bearings may get very hot and cause the bearings to go bad. If that happens, the wheel can come off of axel. Most bearings have grease fittings where you can pump grease easily into the the bearing. Our drivers are trained to look out for that in transport yet preparing it before shipment will reduce any risk.

Lights

All trailers should have proper lights. If your boat trailer has no lights, please let us know in advance so we can bring with us a light bar that attaches to the back of your boat trailer. If you have no way to check to see if all lights are working, please let us know in advance so we do send a driver out there with a light bar.

Boat cover, Canopy or Shrink Wrap

We always recommend that no boat cover be on a boat while we are in transport. As though it may seem that it will protect your boat, in a lot of cases the wind from transport causes rips in cover in turn the cover flaps against the boat causing scuff marks. Also, shrink wrap, as good as it sounds, in most cases it is not worth the cost. It does have a high chance of coming off in wind while in motion.

Secure boat to Trailer

We do check the boat to make sure it is secured to your trailer yet it is your responsibility it is already done. Of course no driver wants to drive down the road with a boat not secure; the driver will make sure it is anyway.

Overwide Boats

Is your boat over 8ft 6in wide? If so, we will need permits in each state we move the boat. We will handle getting the permits. Our drivers are very experienced with moving overwide boats. There are a lot of things to look out for when moving an oversize boat. Each state has a restriction on what time of day we can not be on the highway towing the boat. Most states will not let us drive after dark. Also, our drivers will be aware of what is ahead. In some cases certain roads do not allow overwides to pass through. In certain cities in the country, an escort may be required to drive through if boat is over 10 ft wide. Generally, escorts are not required unless over 12 ft wide.

Choosing the right Boat Transporter

Of course we will say choose us. If you do want to look around for others, here is what to look for.Make sure the shipping company has insurance. Make sure the company is licensed with the federal government. If the company has an MC Number, that number shows that they can operate in all US States and Canada. Some companies just have a DOT number which only allows them to operate in their own state. We have BOTH. Next, be sure they are a legitimate company. There are some companies online that you go on a website and trucking companies bid on your transport. Be careful! A lot of those companies are not real companies. You may save some money going with those companies yet the service may be non existant, horrible, or worse, you end up never seeing your boat again.

Any question you may have, we are here 7 days a week to speak with you on the phone.

CANVAS COVERS/SHRINK WRAP

Canvas covers must be removed as they will tear or fly off during transport. Canvas covers tend to flap in the wind, damaging the boat. If they are not removed, the carrier cannot be responsible for damages.

If shrink wrapped, and the shrink wrap becomes un-repairable, it will be removed to avoid damage from the shrink wrap beating against the boat. The carrier will not be held responsible.

Please make sure that your boat is secured properly to the trailer. Extra straps, etc...
