How to Prepare Your Boat for Shipping
If you need to move your boat to (or from) Hawaii to the Mainland, our highly experienced team can get it done! We'll make sure your boat arrives safely and on-time.
To help you with the process, here are some things you can do to prepare your boat for a hassle-free shipping.
Get Your Stats - Before you seek out cost estimates, make sure you have your boat's measurements and other information ready. This will help give you a more accurate estimate of the shipping costs. Take photos and list and special requirements that your boat may need.
Plan Ahead - Give yourself at least a month before your intended ship date to prepare yourself and your boat for shipment. This includes doing research on the boat shipper, comparing rate estimates, etc.
Secure Your Boat - Prepare your boat by securing any loose items and taking out any valuable items. Take inventory of the items on your boat before you turn it over to your movers.
Transportation Insurance? - Ask your shipper about their insurance coverage. Don't be afraid to ask for a copy of their written proof of insurance. It is also recommended that you have your own coverage for added protection as you are shipping quite a valuable item.
If you'd like to ship a boat or any oversized item, contact us today for more information. We import and export cargo on a regular basis and have access to reliable shipping lines and ocean freight resources which help keep our rates low and competitive.
