A licensed boat transporter for interstate haulage services

It is a good idea to use a professional transport company like Porta Slip to take large boats interstate so you don’t have to worry about safety, the cost of petrol, buying a trailer or hiring a skipper. We can load your boat onto our trailer then transport it by road to another location in another state. You can save money by moving your boat by road compared to driving it on the water. 

We work closely with local marinas who can use a crane to lift your boat out of the water or from storage onto our trailer ready for it to be moved. Porta Slip has been moving large boats for many years in Australia using their specially built company boat trailer equipment that are suitable for long distance heavy load haulage requirements.

We keep up to date with all the local road rules, heavy load transport regulations and road rules that are put in place by Roads and Maritime Services New South Wales, Maritime Safety Queensland and Maritime Safety Victoria. This is especially important when we are moving heavy loads from Sydney to Melbourne, Brisbane to Melbourne or even Cairns to Sydney travelling on some of Australia’s business interstate routes.

The five most popular interstate transport routes

Over the past few years we get asked many, many times to travel interstate between these major cities. These are the top five most popular routes that people request boats to be moved between. It isn’t too surprising considering the amazing waterways available at each location that have their own unique attraction for owners.

  1. Sydney to Brisbane; about 1,000 kms and make take a day or so depending on the size of the load.
  2. Melbourne to Sydney; similar to going to Brisbane, roughly 1,000 kms depending which coastal region is the final location.
  3. Brisbane to Melbourne; a big trip over 2,000 kms that takes a few days of travel.
  4. Sydney to Melbourne; many owners head down to Melbourne during summer to escape the heat.
  5. Brisbane to Cairns; the most popular destination for open ocean fishing out near the reef
 
some other popular routes are Sydney to Townsville, Brisbane to Airlie Beach or Cairns to Sydney. Our truck can basically get to any location either on land or near water so the options are practically endless.

Float on boat ramp pick ups

If you don't own a trailer and your boat is kept in the water you can drive it to a local ramp and we can float it onto our trailer. This saves time, money & the hassle of hiring your own trailer. We then take it anywhere you require so you can use it in another waterway or prepare it to be sold.
