I'm closing on a couple of dealers who I may get my lawn mower, trimmer, hedge trimmer and blower. With luck he'll cut me a good package deal, however, when I asked him if they service the equipment that they would sell me, he said that I would bring that up with the manufacturer. WTF, I thought and commented, doesn't this purchase work like if I bought a car from a dealer and this same dealer services this car if/when something goes wrong?? He said no, I go to the manufacturer. I told this to guy who used to do lawn care services and then as a sales rep for many manufacturers of the the equipment and he said that the sales guy must have misunderstood my question. If he didn't, then I might have to go to the more expensive guy.
