HOW TO INSTALL A BOAT LIFT

HOW TO INSTALL A BOAT LIFT

Written by HydroHoist Marketing

Save yourself from worry and frustration this boating season by choosing a boat lift that launches your boat into the water and lifting it out with ease.

While a boat lift offers numerous additional features and benefits for boat owners, its installation should be left to professionals.

In fact, we believe that assembly, installation, or repairs of a HydroHoist boat lift should only be performed by an authorized HydroHoist technician, as stated in our manuals.

While you can install your own boat lift with some muscle, the right knowledge base, and the right sets of tools, we do not recommend doing so. Correct installation of your lift leads to correct functionality and ease of use.

Professional installation also guarantees safety and security – two important features in boat lift installation and use. Our team values your safety and the safe and seamless operation of your boat lift, so we have dealers all over the US who are skillfully trained to install HydroHoist lifts.

Trust The Installation of Your Lift To Our Certified HydroHoist Installers

Installing a boat lift correctly and securely requires an impressive number of tools as well as specialized training and hands-on experience. When our highly qualified team performs your installation, we carefully ensure:

  • Your lift is assembled on a flat, level surface
  • The installation site is thoroughly and accurately prepared
  • The boat hull configuration is accurate
  • Tanks and brackets are accurately aligned
  • The front’s End Channel is carefully reinforced
  • All arms and assembly are thoroughly inspected
  • A final inspection is performed post-installation
  • Lift operation is double-checked and systematically tested

We leave nothing to chance when installing your boat lift and help you get familiar with its simple operation.

That is why the best tip we can offer for installing a boat lift is to let our team do it for you.

We proudly build and install our entire line of boat lifts and personal watercraft docking platforms and demonstrate how they work to make sure you can enjoy your boat as often as you like with simple operation and ease.

Important Factors In Choosing A Boat Lift

When selecting a boat lift, there are a plethora of important factors that go into your final decision. Starting with your budget, our sales team and dealers will help you get the biggest bang for your buck. Our team will also make sure your choice provides all the options you need for easy operation and safe use. You should discuss the following factors with our authorized technicians and Certified Installers:

  • The shape and size of your dock
  • Your boat’s weight when fully loaded
  • Whether your boat docks in fresh or saltwater
  • Whether your dock is the fixed or floating type
  • Your off-season boat storage needs and preferences

Durability and reliability are only two of the important features of every boat lift we offer. We also provide user instructions, in-depth manuals, and a comprehensive troubleshooting guide. When you choose a lift to make boat ownership easier, we make sure it does just that by handling the installation process from start to finish.
