I Need a Boat Mover in Texas.

So my day started with spilling my coffee. In hindsight I should have taken it as an omen. My new home was scheduled to be moved today but the truck driver didn't show (we've rescheduled 3times). This time we had the crane waiting. Since he didn't show we are now scheduled for Tuesday. Does anyone know a transporter in Houston? It only has to be moved like 10 miles to the marina. 33,000 lbs. All help is approached.

Here is a directory of transport companies, many in the Houston area.

I'm afraid we''ve already been through that list and they either don't have a trailer/truck heavy enlightenment or are ne longer in business

Re: i need a boat mover in Texas.

There is a boat junk yard on the north side of houston, cant think of the name, but he has a trailer that he can back into your boat with and hydrolicly pick it up and tow it a way with a semi. He uses the trailer to pick up boats for his yard but I am sure he would do it for you for a cash price you 2 accept as fair. It is the only one on the north side that I am aware of. google it.

We currently can't get the crane in the field where its at, too wet. And the rain just keeps coming. We are considering waiting till summer when it's dryer..

Now we talked to several folks with hydrolic trailers in Houston but non were heavy enough. They were all only 16,000lb max my boats 33,000lbs... A hydrolic trailer would be SO SO PERFECT, if it was strong enough

Re: I Need a Boat Mover in Texas.

I got a quote from BoatMobil Transport boatmobile@gmail.com and they where very professional. I did not end up moving my boat, so cannot comment on that part.

Re: I Need a Boat Mover in Texas.

We used Hight Boat Transport to move our boat from Texas to South Dakota, about 750 miles. Our boat is power, not sail, but his rig handles both. Very impressive equipment. He did a fantastic job, we were very happy. We tried UShip but it quickly deteriorated into a debate between bidders on whether the flybridge had to come off (for an additional billion dollars). Hight did it with the flybridge on, saved us a pile of money, arrived in great shape, reasonable price.

Hight Boat Transport USDOT# 925420 - Flower Mound,Texas Trucking Company

We may use him again sometime soon when we buy an even bigger boat.
