How to get affordable quotes for boat shipping
Here at Macingo, we provide our customers with clear quotes and transparent prices. The costs of transporting a boat with a specialist courier are calculated based on various factors. Don't trust anyone offering a single fixed cost or excessively low prices for boat shipping – chances are they're not a specialist. The carrier responsible for organising the shipping of your boat needs a few pieces of important information to put together a tailored quote, namely:
Pick-up and delivery locations
It's a good idea to give precise addresses and details of the pick-up and delivery ports or boathouses. The distance that your boat needs to travel is essential in establishing the shipping costs. You (or the manager of your boathouse) will be responsible for the cost of loading the boat with a crane.
Make, model and dimensions
Specify the type of boat you need to transport: inflatable boat, motorboat, sailboat or yacht. The price may vary depending on the boat model, the size, and whether it is classed as an oversized load.
Oversized or trailer transport
The price to ship boats that can be transported by trailer is lower than the cost of transporting oversized boats whose width exceeds 2.55 m. Our specialist boat transporters have permanent permits for oversized boat shipping as well as access to spare vehicles for support if necessary.
