transporting a boat
 
I'm looking for someone to transport my boat from Wisconsin to Florida sometime between April and June. Does anyone know of a reputable transport company to do the job?

I used Joule Yacht Transport in Clearwater, Fl. to move my 41ft Tartan from Long Beach, Fl, to Rockport, Tx. No complaints on there job...was able to get them to come down in there initial quote. There are 2 Joule Boat movers out of Fla., i would check with both of them, and any others that are recommended for a quote.

I had a good coast-to-coast experinece with these guys see Sailboat Transport, Yacht Transport and Boat Transport & Hauling | Hays Marine Transportation The driver who moved my boat, Kenny, did a great job.

check out uship.com. Lots of experienced boat haulers there, and they compete for your busi ness. I would think that given the turndown in oil prices and the amount of durable goods being shipped these days, that the pricing would be quite competitive

signed up on uship
 
I've had three transporters contact me so far and it's only been a few hours. uship seems like a great place to start. the lowest unofficial bid is around $3000. Not bad, considering the first bid that I got from another site was $5900. We'll see how it goes in the next few days

Thanks,
Dave

Try M&N Transport out of Michigan ... I used them to transport a Jeanneau 40 last spring. Excellent preparation, communication, reasonable cost.
