Before you go on line and buy make sure the local dealer will honor the warranty. Some guys around here learned the hardway.

I can't wait till Federal Law changes tax charges for out of state purchases. To discourage this type of selling.

And to which state should the federal government award the plunderment? The sourced or the received? That's something to wish for: the federal government discouraging commerce.

I mean like for instance a customer living in SC orders a generator from Ohio he pays no sales tax to either state. I wish that customer should have to pay sales tax to SC and the seller should be responsible for paying the taxes forward and if not, well that's what the IRS is for.

As a dealer online sales hurt dealers. Although a dealer may be able to match any online price by the time the sales tax is added they can no longer be competitive. Its very fustrating.

It's sad to say but no a day's it's whoevers price is the lowest wins. Im here to stay in buisness and if that means selling to outside my state customers and not having them have to pay sales tax then that's what will keep my doors open. Today it's survial of the fittest!

i would have a hard time with this. no matter where I purchased a new mower it has a warranty from the company. I would think a dealer MUST stand behind a warranty no matter where the mower comes from.

if you purchase a Ford or whatever truck can you only take it to the Ford dealer where you purchased the vehicle? of course not. you can take it to any Ford dealer and they will honor the warranty.

if I was in that situation, and said dealer turned me down because I didn't purchase the mower from him and it needed warranty work, he wouldn't like my response. He would find his dealership on any local news channel and newspaper that would hear my story (and the local guys eat this stuff up).

#2 I'd be on the phone pronto with the manufacture voicing my displeasure with them and going straight up the chain.

#3 the BBB would be getting involved as well.

I did not say they did not get the warranties done. They did in fact it just took a couple of months to get there machines back.
