Having only used my rib 5 times this year it is finally time to move it to a warmer climate - The Algarve. The problem at the moment is finding transport, does anyone know anybody that is reliable? I do not have a trailer !
I have used a groupage company to move an XS600 to and from Spain but would point out they are not specialist boat transporters.
You have to make sure the boat is securely strapped to a cradle which in turn is strong enough to be secured to the trailer. Both height and width are also considerations. We deflated the tubes and pulled them in to make sure they did not come into contact with the trailers pillars. Also took the opportunity to load into the boat various personal effects.
We used Flexitrans who are based in Felixstowe contact Jamie Read 01394 458800 but there are loads of outfits that will do this for you.
Option one: buy a trailer and do it yourself. Option two: Tong tugboats - specialises in this sort of thing and heís down that way on an almost weekly basis to and from the UK so will be able to go you a good deal if heís coming back with something. Option 3: Shiply.com
