states is available also when scheduled in advance.
2) What are your rates for Boat Delivery? How Much Does Boat Shipping Cost?
To accurately offer you a boat transport quote, we begin by
calculating the miles from point (A) where we load the boat, to point
(B) where you want your boat delivered. Next we need to determine the
size of your vessel and figure out the miles, if any, that we will need
an escort. The reason for an escort is because each state has their own
rules and regulations our drivers need to follow. IF YOUR BOAT IS NOT

WILL NOT ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY RESULTING DAMAGE.

3) How Big of a Boat can you safely transport?
NJ Boat Mover has transported power boats and sail boats
up to 48' long, 17' wide, 17' tall and 52,000 lbs. All of our
overland boat transport equipment is designed to safely support your
vessel and its accompanying structures such as a mast or flybridge. Long
distance hauling, say over 500 miles, when your boat is taller than 13',
the mast or fly bridge usually needs to be removed due to highway
height restrictions. On short runs, this is usually not a problem. To
