Safety Tips for Boat Transport

Boat transport, or the practice of moving boats inland, isn’t as simple as hooking a trailer to a truck and hitting the road. It’s a delicate art that requires precise planning, knowledge, and experience.

Whether you’ve purchased a new boat, moving to a different marina, or preparing for a competition, there are numerous reasons why you may need to transport your boat.

Prepping for The Journey

Preparation is key in ensuring the safe and efficient transport of your boat. Don’t fret—we’ve got your back. Here are some steps to take:

Measure Your Boat:

Ensure you have the exact measurements—length, width, height, and weight. An inaccurate measure can lead to improper trailer selection or route planning, and no one wants their boat stuck under a low bridge or on a narrow road!

Choose the Right Trailer:

Trailers aren’t a one-size-fits-all kind of deal. They come in all shapes and sizes, designed for specific types of boats. Be sure to match your boat’s specs to the trailer for a secure fit. Need help? That’s what we’re here for!

Inspect and Secure Your Boat:

Ensure all loose items are stowed away and any protruding parts are disassembled if possible. Cover your boat to protect it from weather and road debris.


Check your insurance coverage for transport. If it’s lacking, see if your transport company (we hope that’s us!) offers coverage.
