THere are a couple of places in Southampton that hire trailers


I am not sure if it would make sense for you to hire a trailer pick up the bote in soton deliver bote in Southend then return trailer (thats a total journey of 520 miles)

depending on weoght and height it would only cost you around 160 to have it collected and delivered

Ive been talked into buying a Sunseeker Monterey by the other half the only reasen ive gone through with it because it will leave me spare cash to buy a new hull for the phantom. So i can still do the poker runs etc etc.

Ive been qouted £325 to have the boat transported but then its £90 each time to have boat put on Artic then off into the water, So will cost a small fortune, A bit anoying when i have the perfect tow rig.....

Trailers seem to be around the 3k mark would buy one but seems a waste since the boats going to be left at essex marina floating all the time.

So anyone steer me in the right direction of a cheaper haulage company? I will ring them today find out cost of hiring a trailer..

Cheers

£50 plus vat to higher trailer for a day from boat loads sounds cheap enough.. might have to go with this unless someone else has one

Christ Taz,

If it were any cheaper id be reluctant to tow my boat a 100 yards on it mate.

Sounds good to me, as long as its strong enough to take the weight of a Monterey.

Taz,

What are you going to use to tow the boat?

Seriously, i would pay to have it delivered. It will save you all the worry & hassle of borrowing a trailer that wont be set up for your hull and weight and then assuming you get the boat on the trailer youve got to hope it and your tow vehicle make it to your place and after all that you have to return the trailer back to its owner.

Bugger that, book someone up and spend the day at the beach or pub or whatever & then turn up to take delivery.

Thats what id do.

Speak to Peters & May, they use guys with trailers who make their living delivering boats up and down the country all the time.
