Beach service is a crucial amenity to provide at any gulf front property. Not only does it provide the value of comfortable, reliable and upgradable seating for your guests along the coastline; but it also keeps a neat and organized uniformity in the place where your clientele will spend the majority of their time while on vacation. That's why it's important to find the right beach chair company for your unique property needs. In this blog post, we'll give you some tips on how to choose the perfect beach chair company for your property.

Flexible & Stable Beach Service

Look for a beach service that is willing to work with you. No two properties are the same, and your beach chair company should reflect that. A reputable company will have experience in managing a beach of your size, and should be willing to make adjustments to meet the needs of your guests and maximize your profits (more on this later). They will also have a stable platform and bring consistency to your beach. They will meet the needs of your specific property they will also have experience to provide reasonable expectations to you and/or your BOD.

Quality Equipment & Quality Beach Service

Consider the durability of the chairs. Your beach chairs will be exposed to harsh sun, salt, and sand all year round. Therefore, you need to choose chairs that are built to last, a beach service that has access to purchase them quickly, and can replace and repair those chairs as needed. High-quality materials such as North American red oak, marine-grade stainless steel, and UV-protected fabrics are more expensive than cheaper alternatives, but provide a much longer and aesthetically pleasing product. This is extremely important, because you need your inventory of chairs to last from late January (when some vendors put them back in boxes) until Thanksgiving or longer! But, what about the guys or girls on the beach? How are they treating your guests? How are they treating your property owners? A quality beach service company also employs young men and women who have professional attitudes and understand the value of a dollar. They work for their tips and try to make guest experiences worthy of high online reviews. This attitude starts at the top and flows down from management.

Reputable Beach Service

Research the beach service company's reputation. You want to work with a company that has a good track record of customer satisfaction. Look for companies that have positive customer reviews, repeat clients, and long-term contracts with HOAs and COAs. Also, check their reviews online and see how they were addressed - and how quickly! Check their website and contact the properties they currently manage. This will give you an opportunity to see behind the scenes and gauge how well they are taking care of their current clients.

Financial Transparency in Beach Service

Look for a beach service company that will be honest with you. An entire blog post could be dedicated to this topic alone. A good beach chair company can partner with you to increase revenue for your property. A great one will increase your revenue and be transparent about their earnings. If cash payments are being received at the beach, are you made aware of that transaction? Do you know how much money the beach chair company is making versus how much they are paying you?
