Boat Moving Company Needed

Recommended Posts

I have a 3 ton boat 26' x 10' i need moving from a field near beccles to loddon

I used GMR to bring it here and he charged me £350 to move it from the other side of cambridge to beccles, he has since retired......

the cheapest i have found to move it from beccles to loddon it £480 

I have tried Abbott transport, MRA transport, wavetrade,

All the trailer boys can't move it as they can only move 2.75ton. so i think it'll have to be hi-abed as 3 ton is pretty heavy

Don`t know if Chillout solutions have a Hi-ab but they move boats.

They do indeed, seen them at Woods. There's Boat Shift as well but will not be a budget solution I suspect. But they are specialists in lifting and moving boats and fully insured. That's what you pay for. 

Just looking again, if it's in a field that might be more of a problem. The above usually rely on a lift out at a boat yard. Probably a hi ab might be the only way assuming it can get in the field and the ground's not too soft!

not sure if chillout have a small enough lorry as you can't get a bigggg lorry onto the site where my boat is.

GMR struggled with his fixed bed lorry

Only one way  to find out - Ask them.

 Kingsley Farrington

The Boatyard, Whitlingham Lane
Trowse
Norwich Norfolk NR14 8TR

Might be worth a call. He moved my earlier boats (25' Seamaster) from Milton Keynes to Wayford Bridge at a reasonable cost

Abbey have a tractor unit with hiab and a boat cradle trailer that goes behind.

It's very manoeuvreable and we'll suited to your 27footer
