- Make sure your trailer is structurally sound.
- Cover your electronics.
- Secured the boat properly to its trailer, in front and the rear.
- The boat trailer needs to have been serviced and have a spare.
- Brakes, if the weight requires them – must work.
- Lights must work.

- Know the ball size and does the trailer have a current license plate?
Your Small Boat Transporter should have a commercial driver’s license, a motor carrier number and needs commercial liability and cargo insurance. Do not let just any body move your boat, just because of less money. It isn’t worth the risk to save a few dollars.
