If we can now get a confirmed number from people who WILL buy then I will talk to the supplier, I will NOT buy ten if the order is not there from 10 persons. Also remember at that price to one address there will be an add on postage from the nominated address to everyone that orders. It may pay for those who confirm to buy to also take the option of the slightly higher price delivered?

So to start
C2 RIBS confirms 1 unit 210 gps

Profit of doom stikes again... have you considered fault/warranty issues? Technically if Mr X buys 10 units from Distributor Y and resells those to Mr's A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,J then if Mr C's unit develops a fault his complaint lies with Mr X. I'm guessing McMurdo will probably deal with warranty issues favourable - but technically at least Distributor Y can ignore any issues raised by the users (A-J) directly and only has a contract with Mr X; in theory (although its less likely) so can McMurdo. Mr X potentially becomes a middleman for any headaches etc.

So what your saying is we should all order independantly from this supplier offering us this deal and pay the small extra for postage?

This is proving very confusing to say the least - can we currently agree on what we are buying and from whom please then we need to discuss how!!

Matt H???

10+units = £178.25 inc (delivered to one address) No RNLI Membership

Chris

Price delivered individually - £183.20 - Order needs to be in by Wednesday latest re VAT changes.

C2RIBS

Price £195 inc delivery to home address

Questions

C2RIBS - Who is your order with - your supplier, Chris or Matt - sorry I'm confused

Matt - I'm not sure if your post is an offer or a quote from elsewhere in this thread - sorry I think I'm losing it


I'm happy to place the order and then send out to everyone once they have arrived here - they can go by courier at £3.99 - but will need payment up front. And as already mentioned I can't do this now until the other side of Christmas.

Whatever happens I would like one unit - the cheapest - and I can pay the person (if not me) up front via a gift on Paypal (no charge)

Phew

C2 - I may just be sticking my nose in where it is not wanted, and it has little to do with me as my 'mental safety budget' is already committed elsewhere. I guess what I am saying is the middle man is not making any money but potentially has all the hassle - arranging delivery, dealing with missing deliveries, dealing with faulty units, getting money from people who promised to buy one - but didn't cough up in time, selling that unit when the bugger still hasn't paid up in January etc. And all to save a few pounds. I'm sure there are people on here who are public spirited enough to do that... I'm just suggesting it wouldn't be me - and hoping that the person who does is doing it with their eyes open.

Hi KY, sorry to confuse I have taken this from previous posts

Chris states:- I have discussed a deal in principal with a dealer in Bristol.

10+units = £178.25 inc
OR
Price delivered individually - £183.20
Matt H states:- I have been reliably informed from reliable sources that its for the new reliable 210 version!!

That is where I was taking my confirmation from for the GPS 210 as my dealer only offers it at £195. Hope this makes sense. I am happy to confirm I would buy the one unit at the above posts states (my dealer is not going to match this)

I had considered that issue but felt that a good barney might enliven the long January evenings on Ribnet. The busiest thread last year was about drilling a hole in a floor. You're a big spoil-sport!

Chris has asked me to confirm in the above the model number to the site as he was away from his PC,

Nought to do with me

so Chris has confirmed that

10+ units delivered individually that£183.20 is the price per unit for the 210 version

Don't worry there's still a chance they'll ignore me and then we get to be smug and say "told you so"... I mean its not like there's any precedent for people promising payment here and not living up to it is there?

well I mean not if you ignore Durracom-gate and Christmasparty-gate
