How to Load and Unload a Houseboat on a Trailer

Loading and unloading a houseboat onto a trailer requires careful planning and coordination. And proper equipment. Our dedicated transport team is fully aware of the loading and unloading of a houseboat process. We ensure the trailer is in good condition and properly hitched to the towing vehicle. When loading the houseboat, the trailer is positioned in the water and submerged enough for the houseboat to float onto it. We ensure the houseboat is carefully aligned with the trailer using appropriate equipment like a winch. Once the houseboat is loaded onto the trailer, we secure it properly with straps or other proper restraints. Once the houseboat is delivered to your destination, our transport agents will carefully back the trailer into the water until the houseboat starts to float and verify if it’s stable and properly floating. However, it’s important to note that some houseboats are not motorized, and their owners prefer to tether them to land or keep them stationary. Houseboats come in various sizes and weights depending on specific styles, designs, and purposes. They can range from 20 feet to 100 feet and weigh between 3,000 and 50,000 pounds. Whichever the type, size, and weight of your houseboat, Wide Load Shipping can move them.

Common houseboats we transport include:

  • Pontoons Houseboats transport
  • Floating Home Transport
  • Leisure Houseboats Transport
  • Canal Style Houseboats Transport
