Default Taking seasonal docks out

Can anyone give me a rough idea of what it costs to take a dock in/out? We have a single 24' dock and have always wenched it up ourselves...but we're not getting any younger and are thinking of having a service do it. Thanks for any ballparks you may be able to share.

Oh come on ..... you is never too old to do your own dock removal ..... even when you is 88 ......

..... what you need is a better quality pow'r pull ..... aka a 'come along' ratchet power puller, and the best places to get one is at Service Star Hdwe on Union Ave, Laconia

or at Tractor Supply in Plymouth

With a Maasdaam Pow'r Pull from Service Star Hdwe ..... you will be good to go .... remov'n that 24' dock when you is 88-years old!

Island Support Service charges us $200 to remove/stack decking, raise dock and tie it off. Same price for reverse in the spring.
