As a now ex trucker I can tell you the price
you have is about average. The costs of oversize permits for the truck alone will cost somewhere around a 1000, add in fuel
, driver pay and anything else the trucking company can come up with, 9000 is about right. My advise is to find a Trucking comapny that has delivered a boat somewhere close to you from WA, the company will be looking for a backhaul to get their equipment
back to that area.
Go to this website, call the switchboard and tell the operator what you need, she will put you in touch with someone there that may be able to put you in contact with an owner operator, might save you some money
, if nothing else they can tell you everything you need to know about transporting boats.
