Our Boat Shipping Services

At International Van Lines, we’re committed to providing a hassle-free experience to boat shipping nationally and internationally. We understand your unique needs, so we offer various boat transport services.

Overland Transport

Our overland transport service is a reliable and cost-effective option for shorter distances. We use specialized trailers designed to handle boats of all sizes. This option is ideal for clients seeking affordable shipping solutions and protection against the elements and road debris.

Flat Rack

By far one of the most popular transportation options for vessels. This process involves lifting your boat onto a cradle and a shipping platform called a flat rack or flatbed. Your boat is then strapped and braced to ship. This option is ideal for small to medium boats, providing convenient and cost-effective transport.

Container Shipping

Ideal for long-distance and international shipping, our container shipping service ensures your boat is protected from the elements during transit. Your boat will be carefully placed inside containers using specialized equipment. This option is ideal for smaller boats, offering a quick and cost-effective shipping option.

Roll-On / Roll-Off (RoRo) Shipping

Our RoRo service allows for easy loading and unloading of your boat. This process involved wheeling your boat into the cargo ship’s enclosed stowage area, trailer, or rolling flatbed for shipment. This option is ideal for small to large vessels and provides a safe and easy transport method.

Lift-On / Lift-Off (LoLo) Shipping

Our LoLo service is the perfect solution for boats that cannot be rolled on or off. This process involves using a crane to raise your boat and place it on custom cradles onboard a cargo ship where the boat will be securely fastened. This option is best for medium to oversized vessels, providing an efficient and affordable shipping method.

Float-On / Float-Off

This method is typically used for huge boats or yachts. Here a semi-submersible ship lowers its deck to load your boat before it’s moored for transport. This option is ideal for large, heavy ships since it offers a seamless load and discharge process.

Our 1-2-3 Process

At International Van Lines, we understand that boat transport can be overwhelming. This is why we’ve simplified the process to provide a stress-free experience.
