I think you hit the nail on the head, that most people ordered directly
from the factory, mainly because of fast delievery.
Let's face it, everybody I know pays list price, so that is not an issue.
I understand that the factory is trying to make dealers stock parts. I just
don't know if I agree with the marketing plan.
(THE MONKEY) :roll:
However, do I have to always play "nice guy" with my favorite dealer, so he can make a profit at my expense of a longer shipping period. Or do
I play the bad guy and demand the parts be shipped from the factory for fast delivery, knowing my dealer will make little or no profit?
This "monkey", should not be placed upon the customer, so that the dealer
and factory can make higher profits at the customers (shipping time)
As customers, we pay the asking price and pay the freight. I don't think
it's too much to ask that we receive the fastest delivery possible, and
not a double shipping system.
As I understand the system, this is the way it will work :?: :?:
Thanks for helping us in trying to understand this !!
