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.
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
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
The only thing I was promoting was useful information on how to choose a good transporter. I never said you should use me. I have a lot of useful information on my site on this subject. Didn't you know, people do read old posts. If they weren't intended to be discussed again the moderators should delete them.
