Houseboats or yachts require shipping from one place to another, every time the owner relocates, or when there is a new owner. Just like you ship other home items via airways, waterways or even through the roads, you can ship your yacht by hiring one of these services.
Boat Shipping Company
The boat delivery company that you hire for shipping the yacht should guarantee a number of things such as the safety of your asset, quality and reliable services etc. So, you can stay assured about the fact that your product will reach your doorstep safely without any scratches or bruises.
The best part about hiring a shipping company is that they offer you cash on delivery service. Meaning, you will need to pay a part of the payment before the shipment, and the remaining, a larger portion after it is delivered, at your doorstep. You will have to pay them only if you are satisfied with their service. From the time they load your boat and till they offload it at the needed destination, you can stay assured that your asset is in excellent hands.
Preparing Your Yacht for the Journey
Just the way you prepare your kids or even pets for long journeys, you should prepare your boat for safe transportation. Here are some steps of prepping your boat for the transportation.
- Empty the water and fuel tanks
- Get rid of the covers of canvas
- Disconnect all the batteries and external wires
Once your boat is prepared by the professionals for the transportation, the experts will conduct a thorough test of boat and provide you with a detailed report. This will help you to conduct an investigation on the boat after it is delivered.
