ABOUT US

Water’s Edge Dock and Hoist – Our Story

Despite what many people say, the “American Dream” isn’t dead. It turns out filling a need with rolled up sleeves, hard work, customer care, and a lot of pride can still get you somewhere.

We, Garrick and Jerry Wilson, started Water’s Edge Dock and Hoist to supplement the income from our landscaping business. What started as a small client list has turned into our own “Dock Dynasty”. No T.V. show yet, but our operation includes 12 full time employees. In addition to our boat dock installation and winter removal services, we’ve branched into selling new boat docks, hoists (boat lifts) and equipment. We are a proud dealer of Great Lakes boat lifts and boat docks. We have also added a custom fabrication shop and mobile trailer for those clients who like to shake things up a bit. Our biggest asset, in size, is 2 30-foot hydraulic barge/hoist that services over 100 lakes in the region.

If you are on this site, you probably have a passion for the water. We do as well and we proudly live the boating lifestyle. We are lucky enough that our passion translated into a successful business. Our “small list” of customers is now a database of over 650 clients and friends we visit most every season.

Whether you are looking for a new boat dock or hoist (boat lift), or need your current equipment installed, removed or serviced, we are glad you found our site. Give us a call on the “blue phone” hotline and you’ll see how our work ethic and out-of-the-box thinking keeps our clients happy.

We’ll see you on the lake!

SERVICES

Here are some of the services offered by Waters Edge Dock & Hoist. For more information about any of our services, please call 517-294-7476.

CUSTOM DOCK SYSTEMS

Docks are no longer just a utility, many customers use them as a space to entertain. Over the years we’ve gone way beyond out-of-the-box for our customers to give them the exact dock to suit their needs. Call today to schedule a design consultation. 

BOAT LIFTS

Water’s Edge is a proud supplier of Great Lakes Lift and Docks, one of the nation’s premiere hoist manufacturers. Whether you are looking to get your jet ski or yacht high and dry, we’ve got you covered. Call today and we’ll make sure you enjoy every last minute of summer.

DOCK REPAIRS / HOIST REPAIRS

Even in the best scenario, docks and hoists sometimes need repair. Recognizing the need to make repairs quickly and easily, we build a custom fabrication shop on wheels so that we can repair almost any issue on site. Our techs have a ton of experience, no matter your problem, we have a solution.  

DOCK REMOVAL / HOIST REMOVAL

Water’s Edge understands the Fall is a busy time for lake dwellers. To speed our operations, we operate a 30-foot hydraulic barge that allows us to move your dock and/or hoist efficiently to your shore. 

BEACH SERVICE

Our services aren’t limited to the water. We’ve installed beautiful beaches all over southeastern Michigan. Whether you need a place to put your feet in the sand and tan, or your need a full volleyball court, we have you covered.

BEACH SERVICE CONT.

We can also help maintain your beachfront. If it seems like your slice of paradise is getting smaller and smaller every year, it might just be true. Beach erosion and weed encroachment can quickly dwindle your shore. We can help! Fortify your shore with more sand, maintenance of the foliage, or simply raking your shore, we do it all.

 

PRODUCTS

  • Jerry and his brother Garrick Wilson are excellent examples of customer-focused, service oriented, caring and dedicated businessmen that epitomize the values that helped to build this nation and continue to contribute to its success and well-being. As a long-time customer that has benefited from their dock and hoist and landscaping services, I highly recommend their two firms as I have to neighbors and family members on several occasions. You’d be hard-pressed to find better! 

    JOHN BOCK, SILVER LAKE
  • Thanks for all the hard work it took to replace our old boardwalk and dock.

    SUE DAHM, WHITMORE LAKE
  •  The boys were here and got everything installed.  They were very professional and did a first-class job. They thanked me for my business and your brother told me to call if I have any problems.  I highly suggest you attempt to maintain your customer service ethic, as it is a very rare commodity today. A job very well done!!!

    JOHN POTTS, PORTAGE LAKE
  •  I made the mistake of using someone else. I’ll NEVER do that again.

    BRIAN KARWOWSKI, BIG CROOKED LAKE
  •  Thank you for your professional services during the year. We appreciate your crews hard work. See you in the Spring. Again, much thanks.

    P.S. Hello to your wonderful person who answers to the phone!
