WakeMAKERS CustomFIT Ballast Bag Process in Detail
Ordering your own custom made ballast bag from WakeMAKERS.com is an incredibly easy and transparent process. The first thing you need in order to place a quote in order for a custom fit bag are accurate dimensions for the space that you want the bag to occupy.
In order to determine the correction dimensions, simply measure the space where you want the bag to be located. It's important that you measure the actual space you want the bag to take up so that you're supplying the correct dimensions to us. Don't measure the overall dimensions of the locker if you don't want the bag to fill the entire space. The dimensions that you supply will be built to craft a bag that completely fills the available space.
Once you have accurate dimensions for the space that you would like the bag to occupy, simply go to www.wakemakers.com/customfit to view our custom fit ordering product page. There you will see an outline of the ordering process and how your bag will be confirmed, constructed, and delivered to you, along with some additional information about how the bag is built, the materials that are utilized during the production process, and more.
When you're ready to order your bag, simply click on the "Design Your Bag" button, which will load a modal window and allow you to step through the ordering process. If your order is for a simple style bag, which is either a basic rectangular or a bag with a single "step" or dimension change, choose that option. If you have a more complicated bag, click the "Unique Custom Bag" option, which will allow you to contact one of our product experts to complete the design process.
Standard & Surf Style CustomFIT Bags
For a standard or surf style bag, you can walk through the tool online to enter the dimensions of the bag, select the number of ports that you would like the bag to be built with, and even choose the fittings that you need in order to be able to fill and drain the bag using whatever technology you're utilizing.
Unique Style CustomFIT Bags
When it comes to selecting the number of ports, we always recommend adding additional ports during the design and production process. It's relatively inexpensive to add extra ports even if they go unused and they can't added to a bag that's already been built, so it adds some flexibility and future-proofs the bag to ensure that it will work no matter how you decide to fill and drain it in the future.
Once you've completed the design process, you'll be presented with a realtime quote for the cost of the bag, as well as the capacity of water the bag will hold. From there, you can add it to your shopping cart and complete your order.
Once your order has been submitted, it will be reviewed by one of our product experts where they will contact you with any questions that they have. At that point, our engineering department will generate a 3D rendering of the bag, which will be sent to you for approval. This is your chance to confirm that the dimensions, port placements, and all other details of the ballast bag are correct because what you see in that rendering is exactly what will be built for you. If you need to make any changes, now is the time to do it. Simply respond to the product expert that has been assigned to your custom bag and they can make any changes that you need.
Once your bag is confirmed and the design is set in stone, it will go into production. Depending on the processing time that you selected while placing your order, standard custom bag orders will be built within two weeks, and shipped out via the shipping method selected during checkout, while rush bag orders will be processed within one week.
