We have a float on boat trailer that can get your boat out of the water

Getting your boat out of the water and ready for transport can be  real hassle and a lot of risk if you aren’t 100% sure of what you are doing. Our team can meet you at the boat ramp with our float on boat trailer to pull your boat out of the water and transport it anywhere you like. We will take your boat by road to another boat ramp, a marina or a service provider to get repairs or maintenance done to your boat. 


There are lots of things to consider like the quality of the ramp, how busy it is, the weight of your boat, whether your vehicle can handle it and more. We take away all the stress from transporting your boat by doing all the hard work for you. All you have to do is meet us at a boat ramp and we’ll take care of the rest.


Here are the steps to get your boat out of the water at a boat ramp with Slip Away.


  1. Get a Quote. We provide Free Quotes so that you can work out how much it will cost to transport your boat. The cost to move your boat from a ramp will vary depending on the distance we have to travel, they type of boat and what the access is like. We look at the overall situation to then provide an accurate estimate cost to transport your boat.


  2. Choose a data and time. We are available 7 days a week to transport boats. Using our experience and knowledge we can help you plan the right time during the day to retrieve your boat. We will take things into consideration like high tide, what boat ramps are typically busy or even what is the best boat ramp to use.


  3. Prepare to arrive at the ramp. With all those details finalised on the day you will head to the agreed location for us to meet you. As you approach the shore you will need to rig your lines and fenders, while also making sure you have all your belongings ready. If applicable tilt your outboard motor or sterndrive before you reach the shallow water and let the momentum of your boat gently carry you in.


  4. Getting the trailer ready. For most people this is the most difficult part when you try to reverse the trailer, line the boat up straight and deal with either the wind, tides or waves making life difficult. Luckily with our service we do all the hard work for you. With our specialist boat transport equipment and years of experience we will get our trailer ready for your boat so that it is ready to pull out of the water quickly.


  5. Securing the boat. We will then help guide and secure the boat to be able to place it on our trailer correctly. We will make sure all the appropriate safety measures are put in place to protect you & your boat from harm.


  6. Getting ready for travel. Normally you would have to go through lots more checks like checking that all the lights are working correctly, removing drain plugs and more. Although we will help with all of this to make sure we are ready to go, all you have to worry about is meeting us at the other end.

"Amazing!!!! After 4 long months of restoring my boat if excitement and nerves weren't enough I discovered a leak when she went in the water. My heart sank "what to do"

Peter was amazing quickly helped put her back on the trailer (not an easy feat in itself) not only did he hang around while I tried to find the leak he was right there helping all the way.

Could have been such a different story he was patient, understanding and helpful. Would not use anyone else would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone."
