What to expect when your dock is booked on dockshare
So you’ve listed your dock on Dockshare, and finally, your long-anticipated booking comes in. How do you feel? Excited? Nervous?
Being a Dockshare host is easy when you know what to expect. We’ve created this short guide to help you prepare for boaters that are renting out your dock.
1. Set Yourself Up for Success
2. Be Prepared to be Contacted and Ready to Respond
3. Guest Screening & Behind the Scenes
Behind the scenes, the Dockshare team will also be in communication with the boaters. They will be made aware of your property’s location, specs, and rules. Once you’re approved the booking, Dockshare then puts the boater through the guest screening process through our insurance policy. This ensures that the person booking your dock is a real person!
4. Meet the boaters
Once the guest screening process is complete, Dockshare staff will provide you with the boater’s contact information so you can set up arrival arrangements directly. On the day of the boater’s arrival, you decide how much you want to interact with boaters staying at your dock. It is always nice to greet them and help them use your dock! With the help of Superhog, your dock listing is protected, but it’s always a good idea to show boaters how to use your equipment.
5. Pat Yourself on the Back – You Did It!
Once the booking period is over, the boater will leave your dock space. Congrats! You have successfully hosted your first boaters on Dockshare!
The benefit of renting out your dock through Dockshare is security. We help protect your payment and property.
