About Bradow


Our Install/Removal Crew

 Bradow Dock Service has provided a trusted waterfront service in the Brainerd Lakes Area since 1993. That is when Carl and Carol purchased the service business from D.H. Docks and Tracks. Carl learned the waterfront service from Dave Hochmayr while working for Dave’s Dock Service . Although the machinery and technique has greatly changed since the 70’s, the tradition of a straight and level dock with properly positioned boat lifts has remained a constant.

Lonn Larson has been a part of Bradow Dock Service since the beginning and is critical to the success of the business.  Lonn has set the standard for installing a boat lift properly for the past twenty five years. He was instrumental in designing the first “dock truck” complete with a winch & boom. He was involved with the design of the first barge designed for waterfront installation and removal in the Brainerd Area. That was the 80’s. Bradow Dock Service has just completed a new barge with a hydraulic fork system to install & remove waterfront equipment. We are committed to continue to lead the way in waterfront service equipment and customer satisfaction.

Satisfied customers are the result of the people of Bradow Dock Service caring so very much. Carol and daughters Katie and Melissa work very hard at communicating the desire of the customer to the crew on the lake. They have been putting mailing labels and stamps on spring and fall letters, filing, and other office work since their elementary days. Whether emailing or on the phone you won’t find a more caring and committed team.

At Bradow Dock Service you have a company that has the experience and commitment to excellence in everything we do.  Installing or removing waterfront equipment, canopy cleaning and storage, sales or servicing your equipment, you can trust us to be on time and do the job right the first time, at a fair price.

We are sincerely thankful to all of our customers who currently use our service or have in the past.  We greatly appreciate the opportunity to work for you in the coming season.  We will continue to work hard at our goal to be the best waterfront service in the Lakes Area.
