How To Remove Your Lakeside Dock 
As the summer comes to a close, it is time to start thinking about preparing your lakeside property for the winter months. One important task that should not be overlooked is the removal of your dock. Not only does proper dock removal help protect your investment, but it also helps to preserve the health and beauty of the lake.  
At Bradow Dock Service, we have been providing trusted waterfront service in the Brainerd Lakes Area since 1993. As a family-owned and operated company, we take pride in offering top quality service and sales to our clients, making your time at the lake more enjoyable. 
When it comes to dock removal, it is important to follow the proper procedures to ensure a smooth and efficient process. Here are some steps to help guide you through the dock removal process: 
1. Consult the Experts: Before you begin the removal process, it is a good idea to consult with a professional dock service provider like Bradow Dock Service. Our experienced crew and certified technicians have the knowledge and expertise to safely and effectively remove your dock. 
2. Assess the Situation: Take a careful look at your dock and assess its condition. Are there any visible signs of damage or wear? Are there any loose or missing components? This assessment will help determine if any repairs or replacements are needed before removal. 
3. Gather the Necessary Tools and Equipment: To remove your dock, you will need a few basic tools and equipment such as a boat or pontoon, ropes, buoys, and dock removal tools. If you do not have these tools on hand, Bradow Dock Service can provide them for you. 
4. Disconnect Electrical and Water Lines: Before removing your dock, make sure to disconnect any electrical or water lines connected to it. This will help prevent any damage or accidents during the removal process. 
5. Secure the Dock: Use ropes and buoys to secure the dock to your boat or pontoon. This will ensure that the dock stays afloat during the removal process and can be safely transported to the shore. 
6. Carefully Remove the Dock: Slowly and carefully tow the dock to the shore, keeping an eye out for any obstacles or shallow areas. It is important to maintain a steady and controlled speed to avoid any damage to the dock or surrounding areas. 
7. Clean and Store: Once the dock is safely on shore, take the time to clean it thoroughly. Remove any debris, algae, or other contaminants to help maintain its longevity. If you require assistance with dock cleaning or repair services, Bradow Dock Service is here to help. 
8. Consider Winter Storage: If you do not have a suitable location to store your dock during the winter months, Bradow Dock Service offers winter storage options for canopies and batteries. Our storage facilities are secure and properly maintained, ensuring that your dock will be in good condition for the next boating season.
