If you own a water equipment rental business on a lakefront, you probably have a pontoon on the property. Pontoons are a convenience to boat owners; however, it would matter very little to most vessel owners if your pontoon were merely functional. While you satisfy your clients' needs by availing a pontoon, you should go the extra mile. What better way to achieve this than by accessorising your pontoons? With the right features, a deck can be much more than just a facility to assist boats in docking and leaving. This article highlights creative ways to accessorise a rather bland pier.
Inflatable Dock Slides — One of the first things you might want to add to your dock is an inflatable slide. During peak season, especially in the summers when families have enough time on their hands, the only thing people think of is water. Most people who go on holiday to a lake feel the urge to get into the water. While your customers can get creative and make their own fun while in the water, you can play an integral role in increasing the fun. Inflatable dock slides are an excellent accessory that will turn your dock into the focal point of your property. It is even better if you have a big pier because there will be enough space for boats to dock and also to install several inflatable slides. Adults and children will find this thoughtful, and that will earn you genuine word-of-mouth advertising by customers.
Corner Bumpers — Most pontoons have either vertical or horizontal bumpers, and they play a critical role in protecting clients' prized possessions. However, few, if any, of the docks, you might have come across have corner bumpers. Usually, it does not cross the minds of most people that a pier's corners can cause more damage to a boat's paint job than any other part of the dock. This is especially true if the pier is made of metal. Therefore, corner bumpers take the worry off the minds of customers because they know their boats are protected from all angles.
Paddleboard Launch — Paddleboarding and kayaking are two common water activities in Australia because they are fun ways to explore any body of water. However, it can be frustrating for newbies to enjoy the experience if they cannot get started on the right footing, and that requires skill. This is where a paddleboard/kayak launch proves an excellent addition to your dock. Installed on the sides of the pier, the platform allows customers to head out on their paddleboard or kayak easily, and this is made possible by the anti-slip pads. Notably, it allows a customer to stand or sit on the paddleboard or kayak and then gently lowered on the water. If you install this accessory, you will start to see a spike in paddleboard and kayak rental.
