10. I noticed that Imm Quality boat lifts are sold through dealers. Why should I buy from a marine contractor and can I buy direct from the factory?
Imm Quality Boat Lifts strongly recommends that our customers use a qualified dealer to install the boat lift. Boat lifts are fixed to pilings, docks and / or seawalls and require significant skill and experience to install properly. A licensed contractor will be able to handle all aspects of the lift installation, including setting pilings, evaluating existing structures for lift suitability and obtaining the proper permits with the authorities. However, there may be situations where a homeowner either has a contractor that they are more comfortable with, or can even handle their own installation. We can sell direct under these circumstances. All the risk and liability will be borne to any person self-installing a lift or by a contractor that is not approved by Quality Boat Lifts. Please let us know if you are already working with a contractor. We always try to insure that our approved dealers are providing our customers with the highest level of service available, and your feedback is important to us. If you choose to use your own contractor, please be sure to thoroughly check your contractor’s credentials and recent references before entering into a contract.
