Our goal is to provide a safe and incident free boat move, and our track record and many clients will agree we meet our goal each and every time. Below are answers to the most frequent questions new clients usually ask us here at NJ Boat Mover. Please feel free to contact us with any question you have.

No. Our boat transporters are professional drivers not boat preppers. Vessel prep for transport needs to be handled by the pros or you if you are experienced in prepping your boat for transport. Proper preparation of your boat for transport requires careful planning and attention to details. Keep this in mind: If your vessel is being moved at 65 miles per hour into a 15 mile per hour head wind, it is experiencing hurricane force conditions. We will not be responsible for damage that is the result of improper preparation.
Unlike other marine transport companies, NJ Boat Mover concentrates on 14 eastern United states. They include: New Jersey - Connecticut - Delaware - Maine - Maryland - Massachusetts - New Hampshire - New York - Ohio - Pennsylvania - Rhode Island - Vermont - Virginia - West Virginia
Long haul marine transport to/from Florida & any of the above states is available also when scheduled in advance.
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 PROPERLY PREPARED FOR HAULING, BOAT WILL BE SHIPPED "AS IS" AND HAULER WILL NOT ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY RESULTING DAMAGE. So please be sure to read our Boat Prep Guide. and take all steps necessary to ensure a damage free delivery.
Once you have chosen a Transporter, we will email you a contract which you need to sign and return to us with a deposit for half of the marine transport charges. This deposit secures your moving date and the remaining balance is due by official bank check, wire transfer, credit card or cash upon delivery. Our boat hauling rates are extremely competitive!

NJ Boat Mover has transported power boats and sail boats up to 80' long, 17' wide, 17' tall and 80,000 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 learn more about the equipment we use, please click this: Boat Towing Capabilities
