The Best Small Boat Transport Company Nationwide
SMALL BOATS TRANSPORTATION SERVICE
While many companies transport larger boats, such as yachts, it might be more challenging to find a dependable, experienced company willing to transport your mini boat across town or the country.
We provide quality mini boat hauler services. Short or long-distance Safe Sailboat hauling services can help countless boat owners. After all, most of us who own boats own smaller vessels, not large yachts.
Regardless of the size of your boat, you need to ensure it is adequately prepared for transport. It would be best if you took the time to plan for moving the boat because it involves careful planning and attention to detail. Usually, boat companies do not prepare the vessel to be shipped.
That responsibility is left to the owner unless an additional fee and prior arrangements are made. If you ask us in advance, we have several carriers that will take the time to secure your belongings and double-check everything is connected correctly.
There are some situations where you can pay a marina or boatyard to prepare a boat for transport, but usually, that personnel will only deal with vessels that are currently on their property. Often, if you use their shipping prepping services, you must make arrangements several days in advance.
Suppose you don’t properly prepare your boat. In that case, it will be transported “as is” and the carrier won’t accept responsibility for it and any damage that might result because your boat has not been readied for shipping unless you tell us in advance before booking your order.

What happens if my boat is damaged during transport?
Our insurance with all of our carriers covers boat damage, so if your boat is damaged, we will either deduct the amount from the boat transportation cost or request an estimate and receive reimbursement through our carrier’s insurance.
If I’m not at the marina, will the driver load my boat onto his trailer?
In the past, we did jobs where the customer was not at the marina and drove the boat onto the trailer. As a result, the driver and you will have to negotiate additional fees.
What is the average price for a twenty-three-foot boat not on a trailer?
The average cost of hauling a twenty-three-foot boat without a trailer is 2.50 to 3 dollars per mile. The total cost will depend on the type of boat, the miles it needs to be transported, and any additional services required. It is essential to factor in the cost of the hauling when budgeting for the boat.

The boat was in the water on pickup, so we wet-launched our trailer at no additional fee. Usually, it’s two to three hundred dollars to wet launch our commercial trailer, but the customer gives us a lot of business. Once we picked it up, we arrived at their destination in three days.
