CAN YOU GIVE ME A BOAT FREIGHT QUOTE?

Yes we provide free quotations for all our boat freight services and need to know more details about the boat, location to/from and the timeframe you are working with.

WHAT IS BOAT SHIPPING?

Well boat shipping is the same as boat transport. We can move a small, big or large boat as well as yachts either in Sydney or interstate. We specialise in east coast boat transport.

can you do sailboat transport?

This is one of those random questions about boat transport we get asked from time to time. Yes we can do transport and shipping for all types of boats including sailboats, yachts and houseboats. 

Is my boat insured while it is being transported?

Yes we have full Marine Transit Cover Insurance which insures your boat while it is being transported to give you peace of mind. This is not an additional charge or hidden expense, we included it in our pricing.

DO YOU DO INTERSTATE BOAT TRANSPORT?

Yes we can pick up and transport a boat from interstate with our specialist trailers. It makes buying a boat really simple and easy as we do all the work for you.

how long does it take to transport my boat?

This will depend on the type of boat and the distance it needs to travel. Transporting a boat can take a day or a week it just depends on the circumstances but we can advise you at the time of getting a quote or making a booking.

is it worth buying a boat trailer?

We think buying a boat trailer is a waste of time and money. They can cost over ten thousand dollars and sit around most of the time not doing anything. You can hire a mobile slip cradle for as little as $66 per week.

is the transport price cheaper if i help?

No unfortunately, if you get involved it can actually make the process slower and add risk. Our team of professionals are fully qualified and have been handling boat transport situations for many years. You could provide a cup of coffee or a beer afterwards though.

Who makes your boat transport trailers?

We manufacture, design and service all our boat trailers in house using our expert knowledge and experience moving boats from all kinds of locations.

Does the boat have to run to use a slip cradle?

As long as you can get it to a jetty or boat ramp we can pick it up. So if your boat isn’t running, then getting it towed is the easiest solution as our trucks or mobile slip cradle can’t float unfortunately (although we have contemplated getting them converted)

How long can I hire a mobile slip cradle for?

You can hire a mobile slip cradle for as long as you like as long as your account is paid in full. You can also extend your existing agreement, just contact us.

how much notice do you need to transport my boat?

The earlier we know, the more flexible we can be with dates and times to transport your boat. If our week fills up then the transport dates available will be reduced as we have to manage trucks going up and down the coast.

can i antifoul my boat on your mobile slip cradle

Yes you can antifoul your boat while it is on our cradle, that’s how we designed it. You also have better access to your hull vs it being on a trailer.

what is a mobile slip cradle for a boat?

It’s a mobile platform that can hold your boat in place and give you nearly complete access to the hull for things like antifouling, engine servicing and more. It’s a simple and effective solution that is cheaper than either buying or hiring a boat trailer.
