Eco-luxury moving company ensures that even moving a client’s boat is smooth sailing

“This partnership ensures that our clients experience the next level of luxury,” said NorthStar Moving Co-Founder & Chief of Organized Living Laura McHolm.

NorthStar Moving ® Company, the leading eco-luxury mover in California, has unveiled a new customized package with Ocean Transport, provider of worldwide yacht transportation, to offer yacht transport services to clients on the move. The service ensures clients’ prized yachts or boats are transported, managed and cared for with red-carpet treatment during a move.

NorthStar Moving is taking stress-free moving to a whole new level with this partnership to benefit their seafaring clients. Ocean Transport relocates any size or type of boat or yacht anywhere around the world. Clients’ vessels are safeguarded throughout the whole moving process. From insurance, custom clearance and permits to shrink wrapping and cradles, Ocean Transport organizes everything from pick up to delivery. They specialize in every transportation method: ground transport, standard transport by sea and the uber-luxury treatment - the float-on/float-off method, where a yacht seamlessly floats onto a shipping vessel. First, the shipping vessel is submerged into the water. When all yachts and boats are fastened in their position, the vessel starts coming up to the surface. Once the deck is dry, the yachts are secured to the deck and are on their way to their final destination. Upon arrival, the yacht is unloaded in the reverse “float-off” method to fully protect it from damage.

“This partnership ensures that our clients experience the next level of luxury,” said NorthStar Moving Co-Founder & Chief of Organized Living Laura McHolm. “Many of our clients have beautiful yachts. Rather than having to figure out how to move their yacht to its new marina by their new home, we now have Ocean Transport, the best in the business, to manage it for them. With "NorthStar" in our name, it's no surprise that we have found a great partner to navigate the rough waters of moving. Ocean Transport delivers red-carpet-level service with personalized, as well as reliable and cost-effective, services that fit all of our clients’ needs. When clients move with us, they know that their yacht will be transported by the experts.”

This new package has garnered a nickname and can be requested individually or combined with any of NorthStar Moving’s luxury services to address a client’s specific moving needs:
