WHAT’S BOAT SHIPPING?
Boat Shipping is the process of shipping your boat, yacht, sailboats or powerboats from one place to other. Boat Shipping is done for a lot of purposes when you are moving from one place to another inside a country or across two countries. Boat Shipping is also useful when you have a damaged or non-working boat and you have to get it transported from one place to another. Boat Shipping is done by placing the boat or yacht to be shipped inside another big ship as cargo. Moreover, it is an easy process and the only thing to take care of is loading of the boat into the ship. Extensive care is required and precautions must be taken to make sure the shipped boat or yacht suffers no damage during the loading process, unloading process or during the journey.
WHAT’S BOAT HAULING?
Boat Hauling also includes transportation of your boat from one place to another. The main difference in boat shipping and boat Hauling is that the boats are transported via roads in boat Hauling method. Boat Hauling is preferred over boat shipping in the cases when there exists a simple road route from source to destination while sea route either does not exist or is very complex and lengthy. In Boat Hauling, large trucks that can carry the weight of thousands of tons are used to transport boats or yachts from one place to other. In boat Hauling, the loading and unloading process is a little difficult compared to boat shipping because the boat needs to be perfectly placed on the boat in such a manner that it suffers no damage during the journey. There are a lot of things that need to be considered and checked before your boat is on that truck and ready to be shipped. Most important of these are length, breath, height and weight of the boat because in regard to all these parameters, a suitable truck is chosen to transport the boat.
THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND BEFORE SHIPPING OR HAULING YOUR BOAT
First of all, you need a trusted organisation on which you can rely to transport your valuable asset from one place to other. There are many organizations that ship or haul your boats. You need to select the one which is cost effective and at the same time doesn’t compromise on the customer service and care for your boats. If you are going to ship your boat, then you must make sure that the boat is comfortably placed in the cargo ship and that the boat should not face any serious damage if the cargo ship rocks in the sea. The boat shouldn’t be congested inside that ship. In case you are hauling your boat, then you must make sure that proper padding is provided from all sides to prevent the boat from unnecessary damage while on the journey. Driver of the truck should be experienced and should not choose any road that has flyovers above it at low heights. In this case, if the boat height is good, then the collision can cause heavy damage to the boat. Driver should drive steadily and safely if the boat being transported is heavy.
