Whether it is for private use or commercial purposes, having a dock on your property will provide you with some benefits. However, it is important to research and consider some factors before building on your property. This is due to the fact that there are different types of docks available which also have different features hence you may need to look for the one that suits your preference.
Time saving is one of the main benefits of having a residential dock since you will not have to worry about spending too much time in hooking up the boat trailer, transporting to the boat ramp or even launching of the boat since you own the dock. Having your residential dock saves you all that trouble since all you have to do is fuel your boat then set off.
Easy accessibility to your property is one of the main benefits of having a residential dock. This means that it makes it easy for you or your friends and family to easily access your dock by making parking on your property easy. If you also own a commercial dock, the clients will also be able to enjoy the same benefit since they will not have to worry about wasting too much time in waiting for parking space for their space since as the owner you will have made all the necessary arrangements to cater for their needs.
The other benefit of having a dock on your property is that it increases the value of your property. In the market set up, a property that has a dock will have an added advantage due to its value when it comes to sales. This is because property as an asset increases its value over time hence assuring you of great returns if you decide to sell it in future. Regarding the fact that there are various types of docks available in the market, you should be cautious before settling for one.
Not having to worry about storage fees for the boat is one of the main benefits of having a residential dock. Since you own the dock, it is only logical that you will enjoy the benefit of not having to pay the storage fees. A commercial dock, on the other hand, enjoys the benefit of earning income in the form of the storage boat fees received from the clients using the docks. This is because chances of intruders getting into your property are very slim hence reducing chances of theft.
