yesterday i went to the dealer and just outta curiosity asked thier main parts man if deere offered a reman box. he looked and said no. then i asked how much the complete new box was and he told me $3800. i just made the comment that that was high. nothing against the dealer personally in my remark, i just said damnnnnnnnnnn. and left it at that. well he shot back at me with -----i bet shoup dont offer that do they!!!!. i said no they dont, but you can bet ur a** if they did it wouldnt be $3800.
ive owned a retail business and dealt with the public on a day to day basis. i know its not fut at times. ive never once told them that shoup was cheaper or anything such as that. heck they
know shoup is cheaper why would i have to make the comment of it. i had folks all the time comming into my liquor store and remarking about my prices and such. its hard to take i know but you just smile, take thier money and go on. i guess him making that remark is just the difference in the person that writes the check and the person that recieves the check huh
---its not his business, hes just a warm body recieving a check.
ive done an extensive overhaul on my machine and every dealer only part has came from this dealer, and specifically this parts man. i requested him because he was knowledgeable, and i knew he recieves a percentage of the sales he makes. but i have a choice and now ill exercise that right.
