A house removal company is ususally the best as they have a truck with a hydraulic lift
trailer which makes loading easy. One thing to consider is how you get it off the trailer at the destination
, some back the trailer down a beach at low tide and then drop it on the sand and drive the trailer out, provided the owner does not mind wet sand.
When we launched our 380 last year, it was going to cost close to $10k using a house removal company to get to the launch ramp
which was about 10km away, but could not access the beach so needed to lift onto a launch trailer.
In then end I got hold of a mate who had a low loader used to transport excavators, but with a hydraulic lift of 150mm. We backed the trailer under the boat, dropped the trailer, packed under the bridgdeck with pallets, lifted the trailer, packed under the hulls, dropped the trailer, more pallets and on and on untill we had her high enough off the ground.
Down to the marina with police and escort, lift off truck with a crane and onto a launching trailer I had borrowed from a local cat builder
, lift the mast
on with the same crane and launch at daylight the next morning.
The whole deal cost me about a grand and a couple of slabs of beer
