I just had my boat trucked from San Diego
to Norfolk Virginia Feb last year. 43' pilothouse canoe stern. I packed all my stuff inside and I was 1000lbs overweight. Weird rule
in some states because mast
is separated from main "load". Could have been a messy issue if they stopped in the wrong weigh scale. I also couldn't get any taller and they had to take a route
, accounting for the height. As such it required more in the way pilot's cars, # of pilot cars, wide load permits, and other fees
permits in the various states it crossed.
was $ 12800. You can probably divide that by the mileage to get the per mile rate and apply it to your own distance for a rough cost estimate. They didn't give me an itemized list, but for planning purposes the extra fees
and pilot cars for my move should give you a per mile rate on the higher side to give a slight cushion.
I got a quote for going back over to Seattle
in case I retire that way. He said east to west was more expensive and that prices have been moving up every year. Estimated $15000-$17000 for Virginia to Seattle
It also depends on what you work
out with the hualling company. Typically they give you a price
for both trips, from the pickup to the delivery and back with the truck. If you have enough time and set this up in advance then the hualling company may find a boat to make the return trip with so you only pay the one way. The other quote I received to truck it was a two way and was approx $23000 if I remember correctly.
I set my move up in July/August 2019 but I'm not sure what the minimum amount of time is to set this up. Truck left San Diego
08feb2020 and got to Norfolk 13feb. I suspect the more time the better, to give them time to work
something out for the return trip.
