Becoming a Wahoo Docks Dealer:
As the industry leader in aluminum boat docks, our dealer network must consist of individuals that can represent the Wahoo brand while being knowledgeable about our products.
What Dealers Can Expect From Wahoo
Over the last 30 years, Wahoo has consistently innovated to create the best aluminum docks on the market. We refuse to cut corners and use only the highest quality materials in each dock.
Our representatives are a large part of Wahoo, we know and appreciate this. Therefore, we make every attempt to be responsive and proactive when working with each of our dealers. Our commitment is to provide timely and honest feedback with realistic expectations and fully engineered solutions.
We have developed an extensive array of marketing materials to showcase the Wahoo Docks brand. Our dealers have an option to purchase these materials whenever the need arises.
We receive numerous leads daily as a function of our brand’s marketing efforts. Each lead is then passed along to the appropriate dealer for that area.
We do all that is necessary to deliver a complete product to our representatives within a reasonable time frame. We will always work with you as necessary to accomodate your customer’s time constraints if a demand arises.
What Wahoo Expects From Dealers
Each dealer is expected to be honest with us and potential customers. This extends to product quality and features, lead times and costs. We try our best to provide accurate lead times and build the dock the way it is represented and it is imperative to convey an honest accurate assessment of what is being delivered.
Each dealer must work with Wahoo to fully understand the best practices for installing our docks. We will send a supervisor for the first dock but a high commitment to quality is necessary for Wahoo to maintain its reputation for the highest quality dock available.
There are numerous means in which to market. Boat shows, mailings, signs, and advertisements are generally great avenues for reaching your target market. If a local boat show is appropriate, we expect attendance.
Prompt and knowledgeable response to leads is imperative. As a Wahoo Docks dealer, you are expected to build upon direct communication with your clients. We also work to be responsive on dealer requests and expect similar prompt attention from dealers.
Each new dealer is required to pay an initial $500 for start-up marketing materials such as brochures, banner, shirts, hats, etc. Going forward, a 50% deposit is required to secure a time in the production schedule with the remainder due when the dock is delivered. After a year, if a new dealer’s account is in good standing, the terms change to 50% down, 50% at completion.
