Boat Movers Compared is not a Skipper, haulier, carrier, freight forwarder or broker. Our site acts as a neutral venue where users and service providers can meet and enter into agreements.

We are not and will not be involved in the actual transaction between users and service providers. Consequently, we have no control over the quality, safety, or legality of the transactions themselves. Although every care is taken to verify the identity of service providers Boat Movers Compared does not guarantee, prequalify or validate the claims of drivers or Skippers related to their licensure, insurance or certification.

Therefore, we strongly recommend users verify licences, insurance and any other professional certifications that service providers claim to have once the quote is accepted, and prior to paying any further fee’s past our connection fee.


Please make sure you verify with the service provider the level of insurance offered with the quote. Here are some further tips in regards to insurance:

  • Have your Skipper added to your “Hull Insurance”
  • Consider purchasing short-term insurance to cover your shipment

Insist upon a written contract.

Although Boat Movers Compared have set up the quotation page so as to act as a contract, it is important that both you and the service provider agree to sign and exchange a written contract of service for the delivery/shipment/work to be carried out. This is an important document should a dispute arise at a later date. Most providers will send you their standard contract prior to pick up. If they do not require you to sign such a contract we recommend you write up a contract of your own (seek the assistance of a legal professional).
