Fabulous Customer Review for Surdyke!!

At the end of the day, nothing matters more to us than the satisfaction of our loyal customers. At Surdyke Yamaha, we are committed to providing the best customer service at the Lake of the Ozarks. We pride ourselves on going above and beyond for each of our customers, and we are incredibly grateful to people like Mr. Joe Ruane for taking the time to write us wonderful testimonials in return!

Dear Mr. Surdyke,

My name is Joe Ruane. In March, I purchased a pre-owned boat from your company. I purchased this boat site unseen because of previous experiences I had with what I believe to be your sister store in Aurora, Missouri. I lived in Springfield, Missouri for many years and purchased numerous motorcycles and PWC from them. My experiences were always great, so I felt comfortable buying this boat unseen from your company, just based on your name.

I have now gotten the boat delivered to my Marina in Grafton, IL (St. Louis area), and I am looking forward to getting it out on the water. With the exception of a few minor issues (it's a 25-year-old boat), it is a quality boat and one I plan on enjoying this year, rather than buying something much newer. I will keep your company in mind for that upgraded purchase.

As a business owner, I realize the importance of feedback from your customers, so I wanted to take the time to give you that. I dealt with several of your employees during this process. I didn't get all of their last names, but I'm sure you will know who they are.

I dealt first with my salesman, Mr. Bobby Lindner. Mr. Linder was very helpful in making this process easy and efficient, despite being 200 miles away. He sent me pictures, and when I asked for more, he went to the marina and took them in a timely manner. We dealt with several issues during the process, and he responded in a quick and professional manner each time.

I also dealt with Mr. David Lee on several matters and it was a fluid transfer from Mr. Lindner to Mr. Lee. An issue arose that was not Mr. Lee's responsibility, but he never dropped the ball or me; he made sure my concerns were addressed and handled. He also made the finances/paperwork simple and easy.

I also dealt with a gentleman named Zack. I'm sorry I never got Zack's last name. He assisted in clearing up the issue and made sure to keep me in the loop... he even called my home one evening to make sure everything was being handled and that I was happy.

Last but not least, I also worked with Rick, your service manager. He made sure the boat was ready and scheduled the delivery to my marina; he even called and coordinated its arrival with my marina's Harbor Master.

I can tell you that each time I was handed off to another representative of your company, it was done in a fluid, timely, and professional manner. You have a great staff that represents your business in a positive and professional light. In closing, I want to thank you and your staff for a great experience. I will do my part to pass on the good will by spreading the word about Surdyke Yamaha & Marina and its professional and well-trained staff.

Best regards,
Joseph M. Ruane

Outstanding Service at Surdyke Yamaha's Service Department!

It doesn't matter if you're a vacationer or a full-timer here at the Lake of the Ozarks. We all like to think of the Lake as a place to get away and escape the monotony of daily life - and for the most part, it is! Unfortunately, things can go wrong even in this perfect setting. 

So what happens if your boat's engine goes out? Or if you need to replace a part on your ATV?

That's where the service department at Surdyke Yamaha comes in! Our service department is specifically designed to take care of all your boat's, watercraft's, ATV's, and motorcycle's needs. 

We strive to always maintain an energetic, professional staff that truly goes above and beyond to take care of you and your vehicle - both on and off the water. Out three store locations ensure that we are always easily accessible to you when you need us the most. 

Customer Feedback

We pride ourselves on treating every customer - especially those that come to our service department - like royalty. Here's a quick glance at some of the great feedback we've received from our satisfied customers.

We would like to personally thank Vince for saving our boat on Sunday, August 11th... and Bobby's customer service is a quality that will not only earn you additional sales through referrals, but going the extra mile by driving a boat over to our slip and installing the fenders on our dock is going above and beyond what most customers expect. Thank you for your assistance and direction!

--- P.J.O., St. Louis, MO

I just wanted to take a minute to let you know what an outstanding job your parts department, specifically Richard, did when I ordered a replacement oil plug for an ATV purchased from your store several years ago.  I knew you no longer carried this brand of ATV so the chances of obtaining a replacement plug were low, but Richard spent a lot of time and effort sourcing the plug, making several calls, and always being nice enough to keep me informed of his progress....  after several weeks of never giving up he was finally able to secure two plug assemblies.  I have never know someone to work so hard and long for a $20 parts order.  I know it was not a large order for your company but all of the effort Richard made is most appreciated by this Surdyke customer.

I have purchased a total of four WaveRunners and one ATV from Surdyke's and am currently looking at a boat.  Rest assured, based on the service above and beyond provided by Richard,  Surdyke will continue to be my first choice when purchasing any type of ATV or watercraft.  

--- Jim R., Eldon MO

I took receipt of a new PWC today for my wife.  I want to say that the buying and indoctrination experience was outstanding.  Doug was a pleasure to work with in concluding the sale at the boat show in St. Louis and helpful in getting us into the receiving end of the PWC.

Justin did the indoctrination of the operation of the PWC for my wife and I can't say enough good things about his knowledge of the product, courtesy and skill in teaching a novice about the watercraft.  You have great employees.  All in all our experience with Surdyke was excellent and will keep us coming back.

--- Mike M., St Louis, MO
