You'll get a lift if you sell these boat lifts - that's the sales pitch from Carolina Waterworks, manufacturer of Safe Haven Boat Lifts.
The Goose Creek, S.C., company is seeking dealers by offering a 60-day trial period and supplying advertising, marketing, customer service and technical support, as well as in-depth training, according to president Keith Rogerson. "Our lifts have such a straightforward installation that everyone from boat dealers to marine-supply stores can sell and install them," says Rogerson. Training includes videos, instruction manuals and guidelines for selling and installing the lifts. In-person training is also offered at the Carolina Waterworks plant or at dealer locations. The polyethylene lifts harness solar energy, require no electrical hookup and can be operated with one hand. They can hold boats from 9 to 31 feet and carry an eight-year warranty. Prices range from $1,950 to $11,992. Contact: Safe Haven Systems, by Carolina Waterworks, (877) 734-2836. www.safehavenboatlifts.com
