Moving your boat on your trailer
Call us anytime Toll Free 1-866-428-5262   (Haul Boat)
One of the main advantages of having us tow your boat on your trailer is saving the costs of having your boat and trailer travel-lifted or fork-lifted on and off our flatbed trailer. 

Moreover, you enjoy the convenience of door-to-door delivery, without having to work around the schedule of a marina. Also, sometimes the boat can be delivered sooner when it does not have to be made part of a load.

If you are buying a boat with an aluminum trailer that you will not need, talk to us about trading the trailer in exchange for the transport of the boat.

Moving your boat on your trailer
Questions?  Call us any time  1-386-527-3902
One of the main advantages of having us tow your boat on your trailer is saving the costs of having your boat and trailer travel-lifted or fork-lifted on and off our flatbed trailer. 

Moreover, you enjoy the convenience of door-to-door delivery, without having to work around the schedule of a marina. Also, sometimes the boat can be delivered sooner when it does not have to be made part of a load.

If you are buying a boat with a large aluminum trailer that you will not need, talk to us about trading the trailer in exchange for the transport of the boat.
Your trailer must be absolutely road-ready for us to tow it.  

Sometimes even when the owner has taken excellent care of the boat, 
we find that the boat trailer has been badly neglected.

Just recall how many boats on trailers you see in the emergency lane everytime 
you travel an Interstate highway. Most often this is the result of wheel bearing failure
which leads to failure of the hub and axle assembly. Failure of a $12 part can result in several hundred dollars in repairs or worse.

That is why we can only tow your boat on your trailer if it is new, or in excellent condition.  

Even then, the owner is responsible for having the bearings, lights, tires and tire pressure inspected and in perfect working order. A spare tire is highly desirable. 

We must be able to contact you day or night in case repairs, parts and labor 
must be authorized and charged to your credit card.

Any time spent by the driver getting your trailer road-ready, repairing it, or waiting 
on it to be repaired will be billed at a rate of $55.00 per hour separately from other 
expenses incurred.  

This must be paid in cash at the time of delivery.  As you can see, it's better for everyone if the trailer is in perfect working condition prior to the pickup.

Please consider this:
If we are going to pull your boat on its trailer, it is probably going to be pulled a long way. That gives anything marginal time to fail. 

If you see to it that the trailer has new bearings and excellent tires, brakes and lights, it can save both of us an expensive and possibly dangerous breakdown. 

Moreover, after we deliver the boat to you, you will know you won't have to deal 
with expensive and possibly dangerous  problems. 

Amazingly, people are rarely disappointed in any way with a boat purchased
over the Internet. They are, however, sometimes disappointed with the trailer.

If you are buying a boat and trailer, remember how important the condition of the trailer is as part of your purchase. 

Don't let the seller gloss over the condition of the trailer.  

Question the seller thoroughly about the condition of each part of the trailer.

Ask if he/she can furnish receipts for the last time the bearings were changed.
Do the same for the brakes. 
Ask how deep the tire tread is, and if there are any weather or stress cracks 
in the tires. 

If the trailer has been used in salt water, and the wheel bearings are more than 6 months old, insist on new bearings. They are inexpensive if replaced before they fail.

If the boat is hardly ever used, the tires tend to develop cracks because over time
the air leaks out of the tires. 
The weight of the boat stresses under-inflated  tires causing them to develop cracks, along with the damage caused by exposure to the elements.

Remember, preventive maintenance is always much less expensive than repairs.

New trailer wheel bearings are only about $12 each.

Spend a little, save a lot!
