At Bestmade Docks, we know we're not solving the world's problems one at a time. However, we certainly are solving one big problem that lakefront owners have, and that's getting their docks in and out with as few of struggles as possible. Below you'll find just a handful of the nice things our customers have sent us. Please keep in mind we did not ask for any testimonials. These were all unsolicited from customers who wanted to let us know how they felt...
"Sure, of course their's only nice things said about them on THEY'RE website!" Fair enough. We encourage you to also read our independent Google Reviews here and Facebook Reviews here.
"Hi Joe. I just wanted to shoot you a picture and let you know both Debbie and I are very pleased with the new dock. Especially the custom extensions to make getting in and out of the boat easier and help with putting the boat cover on an off. The dock has been getting plenty of use this summer! Thanks again."

"We were nervous about spending money on a new dock. When my husband and I were done putting the dock in this year we gave each other a high-five and said "THAT'S why we bought a new dock!"
Lisa W. - Caroga Lake NY
"The dock arrived safe and sound at my friend’s house on Wednesday. We made it up there on Sunday to get it in. The packaging was excellent and the hardware labeling was perfect. The construction is simply elegant and all the assembly made sense just from memory of what I read on your website. Your length of the poles based on my description was spot on. All told it took two of us about 5 hours to get it assembled, in the water and leveled. That included trucking it a half mile from my friend’s house down to camp and setting a landing pad on the shore for the ramp. The size and style is perfect for our little camp, we couldn’t be happier."

Just wanted to thank you and endorse your product 100%. Working by myself I had the 2 sections of dock in place in less than 2 hours and it took that long only because I had to walk it down an incline to the pond/lake. My wife asked if I had it unpacked yet and I said yup and its already up! She was shocked at how fast it went in. I have attached a picture and thanks again.

The dock is fantastic! We had plenty of friends who wanted to see it, so we had a ton of help unloading and setting it up. We're already enjoying our dock. Even the neighbor kids came by to play on it. It's a sweet setup. We're super happy. Thanks again!

We found Bestmade with the usual Internet search. Their website was well prepared and had all the information needed for us to plan our dock. Communication with Joe at Bestmade was easy and he was a true professional, with quick responses and helpful hints. We placed our order and it was shipped quickly with pick-up delivery to our remote lake site. Assembly was easy following the instructions available on the website. We assembled the 5 sections in about 3 hours, legs, dock frames and panels complete. The dock looks great and we'll enjoy it for many seasons to come. It is the Bestmade!

I will soon be forwarding pics, as we had a huge family party last weekend with LOTS of people on the dock. It was just perfect, and we continue to feel this was the best investment we could have made!! Can’t believe how many people and dogs and boats and paddle boards and kayaks that the space accommodated. It was fabulous. (If chaotic !!)

Dock arrived right on time. Went together no problem. Top quality. Packaged well w/ the hardware in marked bags. Will certainly recommend you to others.

You asked for a picture or two after the installation so here they are. This is possibly the best experience I've had with a mail order product. The instructions were clear and easy to follow and the installation went easily. I am very happy with the final result.

We love them! And two senior citizens did the installation with their marriage still intact. Great product.

Fender and cleats went in super easy, just like the dock. I had my little boat tied up to the dock all weekend, ready for spontaneous trips with my kids and their cousins. We had three families staying with us and a lot of drop in guests over the 4th of July weekend and the dock was certainly the focal point for everybody. Kids and black labs jumping off it all day long, boat rides, adults relaxing in chairs over the water, a little fishing and viewing fireworks from it at night. I’ll get you a photo of it with the boat tied up along side. Thanks for the great products, Joe.

Joe, My husband and my brother installed the dock on Saturday. My brother has a camp and dock of his own on a neighboring lake and could not say enough great things about the quality he saw with the dock. The install was quick and easy for them. We are very happy- thank you! Your packaging is so well marked it made for quick sorting of pieces and parts. It looks great! Thanks again!
Julie C. - Kennebunkport, ME
Let me say that I appreciated very much how carefully everything was packaged and labeled for easy identification of what the contents were for. That made assembly so much easier than most purchases for assembly where everything is thrown in one bag and is often difficult to identify. Thanks so much for making a good and easy to assemble product. I was impressed.

Just wanted to let you know that the dock made its way across country with barely a scratch and my sons and I put it together today. We didn't have any trouble and love the results! Your product is very well designed, easy to install and I don't see any reason that it won't last for many years in our application. Count us as yet another very satisfied customer! Thanks for all your help and for making such a terrific dock.

I joke to my friends who I help put in their docks that they can come over and sit and watch me put mine in. What a breeze. Excellent product. Thanks.
Bob H. - Dartmouth, MA
Hi Joe. I adore the high quality dock I bought from you. Very stable. I added buoys so nobody would run into cement that was just under the water. I am so happy I found you!
Pat A. - Wayne, ME
Joe, just wanted to send you a note to thank you for your service. The dock is great and it went in without a problem. Your delivery guy was great. Again thanks for your great service. PS: I will be contacting you next spring to get more dock for a landing we can sit on.
Bill W. - Oneida Lake, NY
Joe, thanks again for your service. You corrected a minor error as soon as you were notified. Your dock is very attractive and was easy to install. I’ve attached a photo of the finished product. Thanks again.

Getting lots of compliments on our new dock. Everyone loves it. Looks great and steady as a rock in the big waves. Thanks.

Been meaning to email you for ages. Our new dock looks great and everyone agrees that it was an excellent investment. A number of our neighbors have been very interested in it so you may receive some more orders as a result.
