Shipping Your Boat Over the Appalachians


Transporting your boat can be a pain, get it shipped and save the stress

We here at Powersports Shipping want you to enjoy the upcoming spring and summer seasons even if you’re due to move or relocate. Just because you’re moving doesn’t mean you have to give up your boat or other personal watercraft vehicles.

Moving with your boat trailer may seem daunting, but we wrote about what the process looks like. There is some prep work that needs to be done (if you’re not using a trusted company like Power Sports Shipping), which is why we wrote this blog!

How to Prepare Your Boat For Shipping

To transport your boat safely:

  1.  Check Your Trailer
    Look over your trailer to make sure your tires aren’t flat, there isn’t any damage to padding, and that you don’t have any lingering seaweed or critters

  2. Remove/Safely store all electronics
    You’ll want to remove or securely store any and all electronics off your boat before the ride. This includes radios, fish finders, Loran systems, hailers, lights, etc. If you can’t fit them in your move, make sure they are properly locked away
  3. Clearing and Cleaning
    Make sure there isn’t any water in the bilge, batteries should be disconnected, try to make sure you only have ¼ tank or less of gas.
    Remove antennas, propellers, outriggers, downriggers, dinghies, and make sure they are properly stored and secured on your boat.
  4. Secure all loose items
    This includes hatches, cabin doors, engine covers, canvas covers, doors, and windows.
