how to get your boat ready for transport

Other transport considerations
Here are a few other things to consider when organising your boat transport.
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.
