Boat Transport Methods We Use To Ensure Safe Delivery

How Do You Transport New and Used Boats?

Wide Load Shipping offers various boat shipping methods but recommends clients first discuss with our experts, understand, and pick the best option. The most common method is trailer transport. This suits smaller boats like watercraft, fishing, or trailer-able boats. The vessel is loaded onto a specialized boat trailer and towed by a truck. It’s mainly recommended for short to medium distances because it’s flexible and convenient. Flatbed transport is another primary boat trucking service recommended mainly for larger boats requiring extra care during transit. Flatbed trucks are used to haul the boat. Lowboy trailers are also used in boat trucking companies because they are mainly designed to carry oversized cargo. These include RGN, which allows easy loading and unloading. Another standard method is the Roll-On/Roll-Off (RoRo) shipping. The boat is towed on the deck, secured, and shipped to its destination.

Lift-On/Lift-Off(LoLo) Method

Reliable Boat Shipping Services

The Lift-On/Lift-Off(LoLo) is another shipping method that involves cranes or other specialized lifting equipment to haul a boat onto a shipping vessel. It’s recommended for larger boats or when RoRo shipping is unavailable. LoLo may require more handling and is mainly suitable for boats with keels, masts, or other parts difficult to transport on water. With over 15 years of experience, our experts understand these methods and have a fleet of trailers and trucks for our large customer base needs. When preparing your shipment, our professionals at Wide Load Shipping consider the boat weight, distance, size, timeline, state regulations, and budget to ensure you get satisfactory services. When you book our boat transport services in the United States or Canada, expect to work with experts who will ensure all legal guidelines are followed to avoid fines and delays.

Legal Requirements for Boat Transport

Affordable and Timely Boat Shipping Services

When you consult a boat trucking company to ship your vessel, legal requirements must be met to comply with the set regulations. The legal standards may vary by jurisdiction and boat type. Several state and international requirements must be followed, and the most common is hiring a company and drivers with a commercial driver’s license (CDL). When moving a boat using a truck or oversized trailer, the driver must possess a valid commercial driver’s license. The CDL class is dependent on the weight and size of the truck or trailer. Oversize and weight permits are another legal requirement when moving a boat or other over-dimensional cargo across states and overseas. These permit the transportation of oversized loads exceeding the standard weights and size limits. The process of obtaining these permits differs by jurisdiction, but our team at Wide Load Shipping will help you get them after submitting all the vital details of your boat.
