Buying new remotely

Am looking at an SVL75 and am considering a new one if I can get the price right vs a quality used one.

I tried to buy an excavator last year from my local dealer and I couldn't believe how they treated me so I bought it elsewhere. So, wont be going back to them.

Want to call some places out of state that might do better deal but will it matter if I finance it through Kubota .. meaning do they care if my home of record is different location than purchase?

I doubt that you will be able to buy out of your home dealers area. I don't know how Kubota handles these issues specifically, but generally most major OEMs make it painful if not impossible to do so. I know that with CASE, if a dealer puts a machine in another dealers territory that they have to pay a certain percentage of the sale price to that dealer.

echoing what ksss said I know Bobcat and Cat have policies against dealers selling new machines out of their territory because then another dealer has to service the machine even if they didn't get to make the profit. However used equipment can be sold anywhere.

Takeuchi is the same way very very strict on dealer territories. That being said, most brands do have a few areas that are what they call open territory. I.E. Effingham IL is open territory for TK. So for instance if you give the dealer any random address in Effingham IL then you can buy from any dealer in the US. Don't ask me how I know this lol, but sometimes you have to get creative to get a good deal!!

Thanks for the input. I totally understand about wanting to mark out areas because other dealer would be responsible for servicing ... but if the dealer is being a putz and acting like a jerk, it is unfortunate that you would be forced to stay with them.

Might be forced to buy used then which isn't a bad thing as usually it's a better deal. Will let you know what I find out.

thanks

Good deals can be had with the Kubota's. I've come across a couple 75's with two digit hrs, loaded, tier 3 for $36k.

Be careful on the shipping though....it can drain a good deal quickly!

Kubota does not care.

Takeuchi only restricts teh finacing.

The manufacturer warrants the equipment not the dealer so where you purchase it is irrelevant except for preferential treatment from a dealer that is not guranteed.
