interstate boat transport advice

 

Hey guys, I want to bring a 5.4m boat over from Vic to Perth. It's on a trailer but I dont know if I trust the bearings for a trip like that. 

On the trailer overall length is ~7.1m, 2.2m wide, I'm guessing something like 1400kg all up. Can anyone recommend trucking companies to reach to and get a quote for somthing like this?

 

thanks.

Send by Sea

 Dont send it by road, they end up stuffed.

 

All the manufactieres send by sea freight, cheaper and less likely to damage.

 

Get a hold of NMT Shipping to organise.

Yep ship it.

I used McPhee Freight to ship my caravan from QLD to Freo in August last year. Great service and included comprehensive sea & land transport insurance. Roll on roll of so transported inside the ships hull. No stone damage insects or dust.

thanks guys.

prior to these suggestions I figured sea would mean containers, didnt realise there was a roll on roll off service. will look into it.

was wondering about insurance, what do you guys think about the risks of easily stealable stuff thats not fixed down - like rods & reels in the boat? just take a list and photo everything or not worth it?

Pretty sure no personal items/ items not fixed down is the norm, or was for me with McPhee. 

Speak to the shipping line but Id look at sending them over seperately.
