International Boat Shipping Services to Port Melbourne, Australia with K International!

International shipping services do not just involve transporting automobiles/cars/vehicles or construction equipment overseas. With international boat shipping services, all clients can transport a watercraft. With a reliable international shipping company like K International Transport, this process can be easy, efficient, and affordable! K International Transport loves to ship to virtually all ports in the world, but we especially love transporting boats and other watercrafts to Port Melbourne, Australia.

The international boat shipping process is very similar to that of automobile or construction equipment transport. Clients will have to pay for the shipping services and provide several documents to K International Transport. These documents include:

  • A power of attorney form allowing K International Transport to handle the shipment
  • Identification for both the shipper and the consignee, including the address of the shipper in the United States and abroad
  • The original title of the boat or watercraft
  • Proof of the boat or watercraft’s value

Clients may need to produce more documentation if customs abroad demands it. In addition to the documentation, clients should also inform K International Transport of their preferred schedule so that the shipment is timely.

Transporting to the Dock for Shipping

Once the payment and documents are in, shippers must decide whether they can transport their boat to the domestic port themselves. If the shipper cannot transport the boat or watercraft, K International Transport will arrange for an experienced and reliable inland trucking and transportation company to transport the boat or watercraft. If the shipper can transport the watercraft, the shipper will take it from a warehouse or their door to a pre-determined port in the United States, where it will be loaded on a trailer or cradle, in a container, or with roll-on/roll-off (RO/RO) shipping.

Deciding How to Transport Your Watercraft Overseas

Deciding between container and trailer or cradle, and RO/RO shipping does not have to be difficult or stressful for shippers; K International Transport will help shippers make that decision.

Containers are typically better suited for boats and watercraft that are not wheeled andnot self-propelled. Additionally, if the shipper wants to transport a few small personal effects and items with the boat, a container is the only option because other items may not be transported with RO/RO shipping. However, the process of loading a boat or watercraft is much easier with RO/RO shipping because the watercraft (if wheeled), can simply be driven onto the vessel. With RO/RO, there are height restrictions, and boats and watercraft typically cannot have a height of over thirteen feet.
