Rent My Dock – How To Rent Out Your Dock For Income

Did you know that 90% of boat docks go unused every day in the United States. Most homeowners are paying a yearly property tax for something they don’t regularly use.  What if there was a way to rent your private boat dock and make great income without all the hassle.  Now there is, welcome to Dock Skipper, the peer-to-peer platform for listing and renting boat docks.

How does it work?  Rent out your boat dock in four easy steps:

1. Create Your Dock Skipper Account & Listing

The first step is to create your account & listing on the Dock Skipper platform.  Adding your listing(s) is simple to do and takes minutes to complete.  Set your listing title, add your address and upload a photo or two (optional), set your own rates, and make it live!  Your listing will instantly be live.  Dock Skipper is capable of marketing your listing as a long term rental, short term rental, for sale property or a combination.

2. Let The Booking Requests Roll In

Once your listing is live on Dock Skipper, sit back and let the booking requests roll in.  Your dock will be marketed across our social media channels and marketing campaigns to generate leads to your listing.  Depending on the type of listing you submitted (long term rental, short term rental, or for sale property), the booking process is slightly different.  In any case, when a prospective renter wants to book your listing, an email notification will be sent to you informing you of the next steps.

3. Short Term Rentals

Dock Skipper’s innovative website allows us to market your listing (if requested) as a short term rental while you look for a long term tenant or permanent sale.  This allows you to make immediate income at often higher, single night prices similar to a marina.  If you elect to allow your listing to be marketed as a short term rental, Dock Skipper handles the entire process from completing the reservation to accepting pre-payment of the rental fees prior to the guests arrival.  We then disperse the payment to you, the listing host, following a successful stay.  All you have to do is decide whether you want to accept or decline each short term booking request.  As always, you have full control over your rental rates and which reservations you accept.

4. Get a Great Tenant Or Sale

We market your listing more aggressively than any other private dock & slip directory website.  Using innovative marketing campaigns that are precisely targeted based on your location & target market.  We pride ourselves on being able to find great tenants or potential purchasers for every listing submitted on Dock Skipper.
