3 Perks of Scheduling a Lift Inspection Before Winter Hits

Your boat lift works hard all year long! The constant weight on it and moving up and down with the water can cause some wear and tear for the entire lift. This means that boat lift maintenance is required every now and then. As the best boat lift company, we pride ourselves on providing the best boat lift maintenance at the Lake of the Ozarks, as well. Check out a few of the perks of having your lift inspected. 

1) Get Ahead of Part Failure

Instead of waiting until an important part of your lift fails, consider having a regular maintenance check performed. This can help give you an idea of something that may need to be replaced in the near future before it actually breaks. A great deal of damage can be caused if a part of your lift fails. Help minimize damage with an inspection. 

2) Fix Something Before the Bitter Cold Hits

The winter temps and weather will be here before we know it. It's best to have your lift looked at and fixed before the weather turns for the worse. Winter weather brings ice and snow, which are all heavy and put extra strain on your entire dock and bracing systems. It's best to have your lift in good working order before the potential extra burden of winter weather. 

3) Keep Boat Safe all Winter

Ensuring your lift is secure and ready for the winter months ahead is key. Having one less thing to worry about in the winter months is great! If your lift has just been inspected and all the bracing and brackets are in good working order, you can trust your lift to keep your boat hoisted out of the water and to be protected all winter long!

Now that you know some of the reasons you should schedule a boat lift inspection at the Lake of the Ozarks, you're ready to call the pros at Summerset Boat Lifts. We look forward to ensuring your lift is ready for the cold winter months that will be here before we know it.

3 Ways We Can Accommodate Your New Boat

Are you hoping Santa delivers that new boat you've had your eye on this Christmas? If you're lucky enough to get a new vessel under the tree (or at least the keys to it under the tree), you'll likely need some adjustments made to your lift. Our boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here for all of your lift needs. From buying a custom new lift to having adjustments made on your current lift, Summerset Boat Lifts is here to help! Check out a few of the ways we can accommodate that new boat!

1. Brand New Lift

Whether you're upgrading in size or getting a completely new style of boat, an entirely new boat lift may be required to properly protect your new vessel. We have many sizes of lifts available, as well as the ability to build custom lifts. Your exact needs can be met with ease with a brand new lift!

2. Shift Current Lift in Slip

If your boat slip is bigger than your boat, shifting your lift to the side can make it much easier and safer to board. That means your boat will sit against one side of your slip where you can easily step onto your boat. It makes boarding and unboarding a breeze! It also helps you make the most of your slip. We can even install a lift platform along the side that has a bigger gap to increase safety and ease of boarding. 

3. Adjust Current Lift to Fit New Boat

Sometimes tweaks can be made to your current lift if your boat is a similar size, shape, and weight. This means you can keep your lift on your dock and just have a few bracing arms adjusted so it fits your unique new boat!

No matter what your boat lift needs, the best boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks has you covered! We can check out the specs of your new boat and design a lift or design changes to your current lift to meet the needs of your boat. Store your boat with confidence up on a boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks!

Holiday Gift Guide for the Boat Lover in your Life

The holiday season is here and that means it's time to start thinking about gifts for those special people in your life. Sometimes it can be difficult to think of a great gift idea that will actually be used but if there is a boat lover in your life, we've got a complete list of items they would love to unwrap this holiday season! Our Lake of the Ozarks boat lift company is here to make your holiday gift giving a bit easier this year!

Boating Necessities

There are a ton of boating items that anyone who spends time out on the water needs. From koozies to towels to bumpers to coolers -- consider items the boat lover doesn't have or could use an upgrade of. These make great gift items that will actually be used when the boating season rolls around!

Water Floaties

Most people who love boating also enjoy spending time in the water. A new floatie for the family to splash around on is a great option for a gift idea. It can even be an entire family gift since everyone can enjoy it!

Dock Furniture

New patio furniture or lounge chairs for your dock is a gift that will get used this summer! Outdoor furniture gets some wear and tear over time and there's no better time to give the gift of relaxation when the warmer months are here. 

Wet Steps

We're a Wet Steps dealer and they are the best ladder on the market. The powdered coat keeps the ladder protected and ready to withstand anything the weather or water throws at it. The stair-like build makes it easy for all ages to get in and out of the water safely. If you spend a lot of time around your dock, it's a great gift idea!

Dock Storage

Hauling your boating gear from the house to the dock day after day can get to be a pain. Keep those dock items on the dock with a dock storage container. Whether an upright or chest-style box, you're sure to keep your items secure, dry, and in one place. 

Water Accessories

Kayaks and stand up paddleboards are all the rage as more and more people are spending summertime months outside. If you've been dreaming of a fun way to get around your cove, consider giving the gift of adventure for those on your list!

Now's the perfect time to start shopping around for that boat lover in your life. If that special someone is getting a new boat this winter, make sure they have the best boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks here to protect that new boat.
