Order it from the other dealer mentioned in this thread or call around to other dealers. The shipping from another dealer would likely be $100 at most, probably quite a bit less so paying the shipping will be well worth it, leaving with $900 savings over your distributor. With those pricing policies, you'll want make sure never to use your local dealer! $1714! Sheesh!Yanquetino wrote:That's great, Jason! Glad you got a good price. I wrote to Schneider, and they sent me a descriptive sheet that listed a $1,200 price for their EV2430WS. They suggested that I contact my nearest Schneider dealer to order one, and gave me this link: Schneider Dealer Locator.JasonT wrote:The MSRP is $1,200. A local company that sells Schneider equipment sold it to me for $750 before tax.
However, after finding and calling my local dealer, he told me that the price on his computer was...$1,714.20! Nor would he budge on it, claiming that $1,200 would be below his cost and that he would lose money on it.
I therefore contacted Schneider again to report the price difference. Their response? That they "have no control over what price they sell these at."
Ouch. Guess I won't be able to go with Schneider at my location. Happy for you, though!
