Summerset Boat Lifts is excited as we approach the first boat show of the 2021 season! As the best boat lifts at the Lake of the Ozarks, we pride ourselves on showcasing our boat lifts and other boating accessories at these shows. We know it can be overwhelming to walk into such a grand hall to look at boats, docks, lifts, and other boating must-haves. That's why we're here to showcase some of the tips for attending one of the upcoming boat shows:
Have a Budget in Mind
Whether you've been dreaming about a new boat or you're after dock or boating accessories to complete your boating lifestyle, there are a ton of amazing products on the market to meet your needs. Having a budget in mind can help you reel in your expectations. Do a little research and know roughly how much you're going to be spending before attending a boat show. The great news about a boat show is there are many boat show specials offered throughout the show so you can snag those amazing products with a discount!
Think About Your Boating Needs
Boat shows are packed with various vendors, and not just those selling boats. In order to wade through the chaos, it's important to have an idea of what you are looking for as an addition to your lake lifestyle. Whether it's dock accessories, boating gear, or a new boat lift -- there are many options for boating accessories available at the show. Having an idea of what you're after can help direct you as to which booths you want to stop at and visit further with.
Spend Time Talking with Vendors
There are a ton of vendors at every boat show. It's important to stop and talk with the vendors of the products you're considering to purchase. Some dealers can be very committed to customer service, while others are large enough to offer nice discounts. Some will offer continued service, while others may not. It can be helpful to visit with the brands you are considering to ensure you know exactly what you are getting for your money.
Plan to Spend Most of the Day
With so much to see, you're going to need to leave yourself plenty of time to not only look at everything you want to, but also to process it. By taking time to process what you've seen, you'll end up remembering something you want to take a second look at. In addition to taking notes, try to take some pictures. These will be helpful when you are narrowing down your boat or boating accessory selections!
