    Australian Jet Ski Lifts and Trailers?

    Hey guys! I have been exporting some jet skis and marine stuff over to Australia from here in the states. One question I have is this. What are you guys using for Jet Ski Lifts and Trailers?

    Is it common to leave the jet skis in the water? Are they usually transported home off the water? Or are the floating Poly islands most popular?

    Are trailers being used often? What is the trailer supply like?

    What kind of prices are Lifts and Trailers bringing?


    The reason I ask this question is I have a great manufacturer here that I work with that wants to maybe get some business in Australia. I am shipping containers of skis and sometimes have room for trailers, lifts, etc.

    What do you guys think?

    everything would be made of Aluminum and/or Galvanized steel

    They can rob my 33 foot trailer is an American make and you can register any trailer here so long as the lights and trailer coupling are Aussie designed

    Like most things in Australia, trailers are imported from China .....

    U can import the frame from the us phil and put the lights and trailer coupling here, then get a blue slip and rego, pretty easy

    We are looking into the trailers and licensing more, but it is really a minor change in the realm of things. The coupler costs the same as ours just a different design same with the trailer lights. We need to know if there would be a demand for an Alum. trailer and lifts in Australia.

    We have used these docks and lifts in saltwater with no issue and all products come with a 15 year Warranty. We are looking to partner with some existing Marine dealers and selling our products ideally.

    Really appreciate your feedback guys! I may be coming over there in the near future maybe we can meet up for a little Greenhulk ride!

    If you have any suggestions feel free to throw them at me! It helps a lot!
