Summer for many people has ended. It’s a sad time for many people. People are heading home. Many families have to get back for school for the kids and can only come back on weekends. Still, there will be some great days left this Fall. 

Many of our customers are from out of state. In fact, we have customers from almost ALL the United States. They return each year to enjoy some of our great Wisconsin weather. The size of the crowds will begin going down after Labor Day.

Have no FEAR!    Spring is just a couple of months away!

But still, it’s a sad time for many people. Our Chicago and Minnesota customers are among the saddest at this time of the year. Why? They face another year of being defeated by the Packers.


Who else faces problems at this time of the year?

Another group is people with storm-damaged equipment. The Fall storms get stronger in September and October. That’s why we move as fast as we can to get to your location to safeguard your equipment by removing them for the year. The freezing water doesn’t help either.

If you have damage to your equipment please call Jerry @ 920-493-4404.


Not using your docks and lifts anymore this year?  

It’s a good idea to drop Keri, our Service Manager, a line letting her know you are ready to be removed. Give her a date when your canopy will be down and your boat stored for the year. Email your message to She will put you on the schedule.

It’s particularly tough this year for our crews. One of the dealers in Door County closed expectantly before Memorial Day. Our teams will be working longer hours to adjust to the influx of new customers. As the days get shorter, they will be working by their headlights to meet the schedule.


Four things you should know about fall storms:

  1. PWS will assist you if a storm damages your equipment. We prepare Free estimates to cover your damage. Insurance companies then use the estimates to prepare a settlement for you. 
  2. We recommend you read this article before talking to the insurance company. Take pictures of all the damage. The more images, the better.
  3. PWS can also salvage your equipment and make winter repairs, so you are ready to go in Spring.
  4. PWS will move your equipment to another location if you sold it or bought another property.
