Purchased a boat from BV Marine due to their excellent reputation. Found working and dickering with them enjoyable and professional. Purchased the boat with a couple of options, got the title, and they held it for me until it got warm. Per our agreement, I called them 2 weeks in advance to get the boat delivered - of course it was at the peak of their deliveries (they store boats for people all over
and
, all the lakes from BV lakes to Beaver and more). They had a hard time promising a specific day, much less a time, due to their business, but I was flexible. They were supposed to call on the day of delivery so I could meet them, but they didn't (the delivery guy thought the office was going to call and vice versa). Delivery and training on the boat was fine, but one option they were to install on the boat was incorrect so it required another trip out. Second trip to lake, again no one called - I just saw them working on the boat at my dock. Same mix up within the company. The option still wasn't correct - another lack of communication within the office there. Another trip was required. Third trip I knew better than to expect a call, so just watched for them and saw them arrive and correct the problem. All is well. These guys have been doing this forever. They know the business and the lakes backwards and forwards and have lived here since the dawn of time. They know everything there is to know about pontoon sales and servicing and pretty much anything about other boats, too. Their lead mechanic also knows everything about tournament fishing within 100 miles. Love them all. Just be advised, they are so busy and have seen so much business over the years that they can be a little too calm and nonchalant, which can come off as flippant or uncaring, but they just have done this stuff a bazillion times so don't get too excited about anything. Just take your time, enjoy the conversation, and it will eventually all work out to excellent standards.

Short story: Room & Board sleeper sofa needed to be disassemble to
move out of a
Los Angeles Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
apartment with narrow doorways and into an old
Los Angeles Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
house with narrow doorways.
Los Angeles Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
& Sons were right on
time, and in and out with the whole job done in about 90 minutes. Great...More /> guys and great service!
Long story: What a great experience! I knew
my couch was going to need to be disassembled to get out of my
apartment because the delivery guys needed to do that to get it in. I
got instructions from the company, asked the movers I hired if they
could do it (they said yes) and thought I was good to go. When the
movers got to that part of my move they looked at it all for a while and
after about half an hour trying to get the couch out without taking it
apart (even though I said it wouldn't work) they gave up and we had to
leave it behind. My realtor recomended a different moving company
(Intelligent Labor) who would have been happy to attempt it but said I
should check out
Los Angeles Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
& Sons because they are the experts. Boy were
they! I am so glad I used them and will definitely do so for any
future moves!

I can't say enough about
Los Angeles Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
who is the owner of the company. He did all the work himself which included a custom made beautiful
Los Angeles Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
style bathroom vanity and very tall linen cabinet. He did all the installation, which included some plumbing, himself to perfection. He's also installed wainscoting in my bathroom as well as kitchen to perfection. In addition, he built a beautiful cabinet around my washer and dryer which is in my office....I just had to hide them! My house is so small so I had to combine the office and laundry room. Lastly, he resized a cabinet in my kitchen. If you want perfection, professionalism, & punctuality this is the go to person for custom made cabinets, vanities,furnitur, etce. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!

I don't know what others are talking about with all of the great reviews. This guy diagnosed the leaking fitting as a bad pump. After I insisted he look at the leaking fitting which he insisted did not use "O" rings he grudgingly tried one I provided which fixed the leak fine. I had hoped by calling a "professional" he would know the exact size required, instead I guessed at the size and had to convince him to try it. Diagnosed the tilt/trim solenoid clicking as a bad solenoid rather than a weak battery. Broke the wiring to the solenoid and didn't fix it, saying he would be back with a solenoid later. (I charged the battery and fixed the wiring, it works fine). He did fix the bilge pump wiring. His bill started at $75.00 then he asked for 90 then 100. He got 90 and since he broke more than he fixed I think that is a rip off. In my opinion he hasn't got a clue and is making up problems to justify high charges. Check out his add, not bonded, not insured and I am guessing never trained by any of the major marine companies. Use at your own risk but if you do ask detailed questions when it doesn't seem to make sense. OBTW I am a retired mechanical engineer who just retired from Newport News Shipbuilding in Virginia.

service staff tried to make the case that the boat was not being operated properly. They kept changing their speculation on the cause of the problem over 12 months and tried to retroactively claim the owner was doing something incorrectly. This was despite the fact that owner went out on a test cruise with the technician and the technician observed that the owner was doing everything properly. Over this period
Los Angeles Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
staff speculated the problem could be attributable to a wide range of potential issues, including the boat as configured by Sea
Los Angeles Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
didn't have sufficient power to achieve plane, the boat was overloaded (with only one passenger and the stated capacity of the boat is for 6 passenger) or alternatively the outdrive was not down when attempting to plane, despite the fact that the problem was occurring even when the was fully lowered when going to plane.
Nonetheless they insisted on charging for diagnostic services that accomplished nothing. They couldn't find the source of the problem. Furthermore, despite repeated requests, they would not answer questions by the owner on, should the problem persist, whether or not the warranty would cover finding the problem and getting it fixed . Generally the staff was not professional in responding to requests from the owner on precisely what the warranty would cover.
hey They appeared more interested in maximizing billing for diagnostic service for engine problems, and wanted to charge $480 to perform "diagnostic services" when the engine alarm and warning
Los Angeles Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
notified the owner of a malfunction attributable to a faulty sensor. They refused to answer questions if the problem was indeed attributable to a faulty sensor would the diagnostic service be covered under the warranty.
They are happy to sell you a new boat, but when it comes to service under the warranty, they will try to charge the owner for all issues upfront that arise and avoid giving honest assessments of what will be covered by the warranty prior to the start of any work.

He was so detailed in his work. All our tiles are not just even, they look wonderful! The walls are like new which says a lot for this 30+ yr old house. He was prompt and on time both days he was here. He worked fast and neatly. You never know when you hire someone if they are gonna leave a mess.

Overall, the service was poor. Even after signing a contract and paying a 50% deposit it took a couple phone calls to get them to come and complete the work. The work was performed before my new pontoon was delivered. They said they didn't need the boat present to set lift to fit it. I naively paid them when they said the work was done. Shame on me. I know better, but I'm a trusting guy and this was a
Los Angeles Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
job. When the pontoon was delivered a week later and I tried to fit it on the lift, the bunk boards were not correctly positioned. The contract specifically stated they would adjust the lift to fit my boat.
I contacted them by phone five times over a period of three and a half weeks. The only response I got was, "I don't know when we can get down there."
I finally did the work myself, as my boat and lift were growing a coat of algae.
I sent them an email telling them I was going to file a complaint and asked for a partial refund. Of course, they said they'd come right down. I told them there was no longer any need for their services. I was promised a partial refund, June 9, 2014. I'm still waiting.
I have contacted
Los Angeles Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
twice in the past for service and they just never followed through. No money changed hands and I was mostly annoyed.
This project was bigger and worth some money to them. I expected a little more interest on their part.
They are the only distributor for HydroHoist boat lifts in the central Indiana area. It's a great product, but if you need service, it's DIY.

perfect. Have used
Los Angeles Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
for several years and he is always on time and does a very thorough job. There have been times when I have asked him to do a service and he talked me out of it to save some money, very honest and dependable. Highly recommend!

This company has no idea what they are doing. I had them place a dock and hoist on my property. First the placed two boards on backwards and put the boat hoist in backwards. The final straw is when they lost the key to the electronic hoist. When I tried to call them all I received was a voice mail and no call back. After spending that amount of money I would hope he would of completed the work correctly and on time. I don't recommend this company to anyone. Avoid them at all cost.
