Our Favorite Story....
Wes Elsberry, the founder and President of West Lake Boat Repair, Inc., has been working on boats for almost 20 years. He started working on boats with his father, who was also in the boat repair business. He learned a lot from his father; how to repair boats and how to treat your customers right.
That's certainly more experience than what a large number of the technicians, who are currently working in boat dealerships in the DFW area today, have. So if you're looking for a service center that offers experience, West Lake Boat Repair, Inc. is your answer!
After working for his father for a number of years and then for several boat dealers in the DFW area, he felt he could take better care of his customers on his own. So with some self-determination, his tools, certifications, and a pickup truck, he started his own business. He took in whatever work he could find and offered his customers a novel "pickup and delivery" service because he didn't have his own shop. The word spread fast and loud among the boating enthusiasts in the North Central Texas Region. And his business grew. And grew. And grew.
During the next 4-5 years, his business continued to thrive and Wes came to the realization that he needed to take the next step in the growth of his business and find a suitable location big enough to handle the volume of business and convenient for his customers. Through the last few years and a couple of location and name changes, West Lake Boat Repair, Inc. has continued to thrive and landed at their current location at 965 South Main Street, Hickory Creek, Texas. On the western side of Lake Lewisville, one of the most popular lakes in the state of Texas.
West Lake Boat Repair, Inc. has consistently grown because of adhearing to the founder's basic business principal, which is: Keep Your Word and offer your customers high quality service, parts, and accessories at affordable prices.
