Houseboat Transport - getting a shipping quote to move your house boat.

Looking for a houseboat transport company that can safely and cost effectively move or ship your house boat? I personally have had boats shipped, and I know how important it is to have the job done Right!

So whether you want to move a small boat, mid-sized, or a 100+ foot houseboat, getting the right people with the proper equipment and all the required papers to move your boat is vital.

Lowest Bid is Sometimes Dangerous

Nothing worse than choosing the lowest bid and finding out that your houseboat has been damaged, impounded, in an accident, or a fatal injury. (not an insurance call you want to make)

You Want the Job Done RIGHT.

You want a transporter that has access to the proper equipment like escort vehicles, flatbed or low-rider trailers, hydraulic or travel lifts to aid in retrieving or launching your boat. You want a shipper that understands flybridges or other height limits to be taken care of.

Houseboat Transport Companies

You'll find some houseboat moving companies that are local, some in your state, and some are national transporters. They should all have transport logistics depending on their equipment, personnel, and transport scheduling.
