There are a few basic things that need to be done before transporting your power boat to ensure safe shipping. One of the most important is cleaning the bottom of your power boat. The vessel's bottom portion must be thoroughly cleaned, to remove all grass and live organisms. When your boat is put on the travel lift is an excellent time to use a pressure washer on this part. It's important to note that some states have strict laws regarding the moving of live plants and organisms into and out of the state. You may be inspected when you reach a state border, to make sure no organic matter is on the boat. Nationwide Boat Shipping will make sure that your power boat is cleaned and ready to move.
One of the biggest issues to deal with when shipping power boats has to do with the height of the boat. The height needs to be known when working on a quote, so proper route can be planned, and the correct permits can be obtained. In general, you are allowed 13'6"in the northern east coast states, while 14' is permitted in other states. If your power boat exceeds these limits, you will need to have a pole car travel with you. Also, due to height and weight requirements, you may have to remove certain parts of your boat before transport, such as antennas, outriggers, propellers, and other parts. When you trust the professionals at Nationwide Boat Shipping, you never have to worry about whether your power boat is in compliance with state laws. We will take care of obtaining all permits and escorts that are needed during the transport of your power boat.
