Things that affect the cost of a houseboat move are Permits, Mileage, Size, Weight, Return Trips, and Carrier’s Insurance. Permits are required to travel on public roads, and the cost of permits are dependent on the route traveled. Mileage is calculated possibly both ways, if there is no load on the return trip. Size and Weight determine whether a Pilot service vehicle is required to escort the load. Larger houseboats require extra pilot vehicles and possibly a CHP escort. Trip & Cargo Insurance is a cost that reputable companies have to absorb.
Remember that you get what you pay for and make sure you choose a good hauler with extensive experience in the transport of houseboats and the proper credentials in order to do it right the first time. A smooth and flawless houseboat transport experience is our goal.
Generally, all loose items should be secured in and out of the cabin of your houseboat. The cabinet doors should be secured in case dishes, etc. shift during the move. All doors and windows should be shut and locked. The Shasta Marine Transport crew will advise you about anything extra that should be done prior to transport.
