Inland Shipping, Hoisting, Lifting

I wish we had one that could lift my boat within 500 miles of Nashville about 96 ton

Ever give any thought to loading your boat on to a barge?

These companies seem to believe they can load just about anything.

Crane rental company in Knoxville Tennessee,

Berard Transportation Inc. --- Heavy Moving Specialists

P.S. - Paying for their services may be a bigger challenge.

Hey Capt......Wouldn't one of the outfits near Lake Cumberland, that haul the big houseboats out, be able to handle the job?? I could dig up some names for ya.......I've seen them pull some 110' out.

Just curious, have you given any thought to a float-on/float-off barge?

The Cumberland should have some deep spots to sink a barge, float on your boat, have some divers place supports, and refloat the barge to transport it to your dock.

That would save the cost of a large crane and be easier on the boat's hull.

The below company has a Nashville office and an 800 number.

Perhaps a good starting point to ask them some questions and maybe receive a good answer or two.

heavy boat transport

Call Michael at All Coasts Transport: 818-RIP-UOFF or LINK REMOVED
I had my houseboat shipped from Florida to Maine with them.

So I ran a low level IP search and found Tintasbarnes has made many posts on various forums promoting All Coast Transporters. Upon searching your email address in conjunction with the company name, Google returned the following Rip Off Report...

Rip-off Report | Nationwide Relocation - All Coast Transporters Inc. | Complaint Review: 249694

Heads up to anyone reading this thread, this company engages in internet solicitation, posing as a satisfied customer under a false name. Beware of All Coast Transporters!
