Customers looking for a good deal on boat repair should consider having their boat serviced in the winter. Most boat shop owners are hungry for business in the cold months and may negotiate on rates of repair. “At US Boatworks we get a lot of tire kickers calling for prices in the winter”,says owner Mike Tracy . “We tell callers that some discounted prices are only good through the end of February. After that, when business starts picking up, we have to raise our prices to make up for the lost income over the winter months.” Delaying that boat repair can not only cost you money but consider the quality of service for a second. It seems reasonable that when a repair shop is less chaotic, your quality of service may go up. Mechanics are less rushed to complete your job and should do a more thorough inspection of your engine.
Boat repair is not the only area of savings in the winter months. Often times you will find good discounts on large ticket items like lower units and outboard motors. US Boatworks assembles remanufactured lower units as they are ordered. During those slow months, there is time to make those units and there is a little room for discounts depending on the unit you order according to the owner. The same is true about Mercury Outboard motors. You will find discounts on outboard motors in the winter months that do not last all year long.
So, if you are putting off that boat repair or boat part purchase, don’t delay any further. Check out our website & call for the best pricing before things heat up.
