- Wear and tear if travelling on the open ocean.
- The amount of unnecessary engine hours.

It is easy to get a pontoon boat moved even if you don’t own a trailer.
- Your first choice will be to drive the pontoon to a local marina and ask them to lift it out of the water on a crane so you can put it in storage or get it ready for being moved to another location. The marina will charge lifting & storage fees to do this.
- We can meet you at a boat ramp and float your pontoon onto our specially designed boat moving trailer to then take it to where you need it moved to. This saves money on marina lifting fees.
- If your pontoon is in storage or at your house we can bring our boat moving truck and trailer to pick your boat up from that location as well.
In each scenario it means you don’t have to worry about hiring a truck or hiring/buying a trailer to move your pontoon. So it is less stress, hassle & you can leave it to the experts.
