Help Protect Your Boat & Lift During a Hurricane

Hurricanes have the potential to severely damage your boat, but being prepared can help minimize the impact. One of the key precautions is to ensure your boat is secured to its lift with heavy duty straps. 

Let us handle the job for you. Whenever a watch is issued during the hurricane season, our service crew will strap down your boat until after

the threat has passed.

Here are the details:

We can only accommodate a limited number of customers due to the emergency nature of an approaching hurricane and still ensure everyone is serviced in a timely manner.   

Once you pay the initial, one-time, nonrefundable deposit of $49.99 you are enrolled in our program for the hurricane season (June 1 through November 30). However, the deposit will be deducted from your first tie-down service of $349.00. The initial deposit serves to reserve your spot in the program. Once we’re at capacity we will discontinue offering this service to new customers for the season.  

By purchasing this service you acknowledge and accept the following terms: 

  1. ​Your boat is on a boat lift and located between MM 74 and MM 106, so that we have adequate time to respond after a watch has been issued.

  2. This agreement is effective during the hurricane season, June 1 through November 30.

  3. We will initiate the service each time the NOAA National Hurricane Center issues a hurricane watch that may threaten the Florida Keys.

  4. Each hurricane watch is a separate event, and the tie-down service will be performed and billed individually at $349.00, whether the storm’s path is ultimately within the specified mile markers, another area of the Keys, or redirects away from the Keys.

  5. If you don’t currently own tie-down straps we will provide them for the first event and bill them separately. They can then be stored at your property for future tie-downs. Please advise us of the storage location so our team can quickly access them when needed.

  6. You agree to allow access to the premises for Hurricane Boat Lifts South, its employees, agents and assigns, at reasonable times for installation, removal, inspection, and service.

  7. If the storm’s severity is at the point that it becomes too dangerous to perform this service, the safety of our employees will be our top priority.

  8. You agree to release and hold harmless Hurricane Boat Lifts South, its employees, agents, and assigns, from all claims and liabilities of any type whatsoever and for any damage to, loss or destruction of any property, boat, lift, or other structure(s) which result from performing this service.
