...IT'S MY BIRTHDAY....I WILL ACCEPT CASH GIFTS SO I CAN BUY A NEW FURNACE FOR MY HOME!:laughing:
I'd be Pissed too.I got a brynt in my house now.
I wouldn`t touch a nordyn after they refuse to pay me a $1800.00 warranty on a 2 month packaged HP. PISS ON THEM:furious:
Yeah, they need contractors but in recent years the shift in the wholesale supply market has been to cater to the the largest volume dealers.hey pal your smarter than those wholesalers read read read and dont sell yourself short then you get to apply it not sell it remember they need you more than you need them you have us brother.
Around here the Big Box stores use a dedicated dealer network. If they didn't there would an hvac contractor riot.
At the first sign of such treatment from a supplier, I would immediately begin looking elsewhere, even if that meant stocking more inventory of commonly used repair parts and materials purchased through other out of town or online suppliers.
The way I see it is, if they’re not interested in helping me keep my doors open, I'm not interested in helping them keep theirs open. At all!! :no:
Don’t forget, regardless of how you may feel about it right now, you can always buy your equipment at the big box stores.
One thing is for sure, the big boxes are in business for business and I have no doubt that you will find that they will be more than happy to capitalize on this new found strategy of supplier ineptitude by increasing their product inventory and offerings as well as expanding repair parts availability at even better prices.
If this new national supplier sales strategy turns out to be true, I think that it will be the final straw that will bring small contractors into the fold of the big box stores in droves.
BTW: Happy Birthday :happybday:
That’s exactly my point. If enough contractors get the shaft from their current supply houses, the trade attitude will change and the big box stores will gladly open the floodgates to bring in all those unhappy contractors, dealer network be damned.Around here the Big Box stores use a dedicated dealer network. If they didn't there would an hvac contractor riot.
