Top Boat Transport related questions

Select the pink ‘Post a task’ button to start booking a boat transport service on Airtasker. In your request, mention the details about your boat. Don’t forget to specify the dates and locations of pick-up and drop-off points. You can get free quotes from boat transporters within minutes or hours - view ratings and reviews of boat transport providers before accepting an offer.
Before boat transport, make sure to inspect your boat, remove non-essential loads, and secure the components. First, check and photograph the vessel interior and exterior. These records can help you spot any damages after transport. Next, pump out wastewater and drain out most of the fuel. Doing so will lighten the weight of the boat and prevent leakage. Also, disconnect the battery and tuck away cables. Your boat movers can also advise you on any other precautions for safe transport.
Height limits for boat transport depend on the route and type of boat. In general, 16.4ft (5m) is the maximum safe height, as most motorway bridges are at least this high. If your boat is wider than 9.5ft (2.9m), your movers may have to inform the Police force about the boat transport details. The Police may delay moving times to ensure road safety. Further, telling authorities ensures that you don’t encounter problems during transport. Full loads may also need an escort vehicle.
Yes, some boat transporters can provide cranes or Marina lifts. But in other cases, the boat owner will have to arrange and pay for the cranes or lifts separately. For more convenience, you can hire a boat transporter who can provide or arrange for a crane or lift for you.
For safe transport, your boat movers can provide a cradle for your boat during shipping. They can either build a cradle in-house or source it from their trusted suppliers. Shrink wrapping a ship is another way to protect the vehicle from the elements. Ask your movers if they also offer shrink wrap for boat transport.
Boat movers can also help with unloading, docking, and maintenance checks upon delivery. What’s more, boat movers can refill water tanks, remove the tape and other securing materials, and reattach batteries. These extra services can get your boat ready for use. The scope of your boat transport services depending on what you agree upon with your provider. Whether or not you avail post-transit services, you should have someone inspect your boat after delivery. This way, you can clarify issues immediately.

Suggested reads about Boat Transport

What do boat transport services include?

Boat movers can transport all types of boats, such as wooden boats, speedboats, yachts, and sailboats. The two main transport methods include boat transport by road (with a lorry or trailer) and by sea or river (by a sea vessel or under the boat’s own power).

Your pick-up and drop-off locations will determine the type of transport method you need. Boat transport includes land to the marina, marina to marina, and marina to coast travel. Boat transport is a specialised type of vehicle delivery service. Here’s a list of boat transport services you can request for on Airtasker.

Boat haulage by trailer

To haul an oversized boat, movers may need to alter their route heavily. Boat weight and height restrictions vary per state and road. As a result, boat transport can take many hours more than regular travel. An experienced boat trailer delivery service will know how to work with boatyards, ports, and marinas. If you’re moving to a different city or state, our long distance movers can help you with your other moving needs. Once you’re done moving, our courier services can pick up or deliver any parcel from across town.

Boat haulage by towing

Towing a boat is possible for smaller and lighter vessels. Boat movers may use a large 4x4 vehicle or panel van to transport lightweight and narrower boats. For example, conventional road trailers may carry lightweight boats up to 32ft (9.8m).

Boat haulage by sea vessel

Boat movers can ship yachts and other types of boats as deck cargo. Hauling a boat by sea vessel may require a ship or shore crane in a cradle. Skippers (i.e. boat transport personnel) need to have the necessary licences in handling safe and quick transport. Boat haulage by sea vessel can cover vast distances. For instance, a sea vessel can transport a boat from one part of the Atlantic or Pacific to another.

Boat transport by sailing

You can hire a crew or Captain to sail your boat from port-to-port by sea or river. Boat transport by sailing tends to be cheaper than boat transport by road. The latter option would need specialised equipment for road travel. However, transport by sailing can limit movement to ports or sea-accessible areas. Crew preparations include inspecting the vehicle, plotting the course, and checking shipping forecasts. 

Post-transit services

Boat movers can also help with unloading, docking, and maintenance tasks. To get your boat ready for use, your movers can remove the securing materials, reattach batteries and motors, and refill the water tanks. If you need to dispose of a boat that’s outlived its purpose, you can also find boat removal services on Airtasker. If you’re relocating to a new property, you can hire a removals service via Airtasker. Our removalists can help disassemble, pack, and move your furniture to your new home. For disposing of other junk, our clearance services can also help you out.

Lift tinny boat over fence - removalist team

$250

Morningside QLD, Australia

15th May 2022

We want to move our tinny boat and trailer out of the garage and into our undercover area outside. However there is no access except back gate. The trailer may fit through if turned on its side but the boat will have to be lifted over a 4ft wall and moved into position via an uneven grassy area. Best to move in stages and i have already removed the outboard. Potentially awkward lifting and manoeuvring but a quick job for an experienced team. Willing to pay for professional removalists.
