This can be much more difficult that it first appears. Many yards with haul out ability have limited land storage so rates go through the roof.

You may want to look at relocating the boat to your home, (if you have a yard) or to a rented lot well inland.

An option that worked for me was to buy a trailer, a new trailer if you have a great distance to travel and do not want trailer issues, use it for the year (likely be 2 or 3yrs) then sell it. I bought a nice new trailer, used it for a few years and sold it for almost 90% of my purchase cost. Mind you I did install extra jacks, keep tires covered, off the ground and touch up paint before selling. Even with all the extra effort and costs it was cheaper, way cheaper, than paying for a single trip with someone elses trailer.
