Slip Away has been providing a range of specialist boat transport services for marine vessell owners for many years from its home base in NSW with a focus on local Sydney boat transport and interstate boat hauling to Victoria or Queensland. Here is our quick guide for getting your boat prepared for being transported by road with our towing vehicle.
A checklist that you can use to prepare your boat
Other requirements that have to be considered
Here are a few other things to consider when organising your boat to be transported by Slip Away
Street position and space.
The red arrow is where boat ideally would be placed. Please inform neighbours to keep their side of the street clear on the day for transport to make access easier.
Measuring the space
The red line indicates the width of your drive way which needs to be measured. The blue line indicates the overhead powerlines connecting to your house. These powerlines need to be taken into consideration compared to the height of your boat.
How flat will access be?
Here is an example of a steep or uneven driveway. Send us a photo and we can work out if a site inspection is needed before your transportation date.
Remove all external items
As shown in the photo, boats can only be transported with covers down and all the antennae and fishing equipment etc down for transport.
