RIB Buying

In my opinion why leave Ireland?? John Mc Aleese in Scarva, Co.Down has a display of RIBs that just has to be seen. He is no relation of mine and I'm not touting for business for him but found him very good to deal with. Just my 2c.
He has a great website something like mcaleesemarine.com ???? try googling him.

-pay a deposit by cash and the firm goes down the drain and you are an unsecured creditor for a company that has gone bust- If its gone bust it hasnt got any money (allegedly) therefore there is none for you so you can kiss it goodbye! Use a credit card and the credit card company has equal liability under the consumer credit act (as long as it was over 100) so you claim off them-and they've got lottsa money.

Absolutely - and that applies not just at the deposit stage - it applies longer term (the C/Card co has joint responsibility) so if for example there is a manufacturing defect a year later they can be expected to sort it out (e.g. if the retailer refuses or has gone bust etc).

Riva, when people buy on the basis of a recommendation they are usually referring to the quality of the product and the standard of service / people involved - rarely has the individual involved investigated the company's financial position. People DO loose out in transactions with car dealers / boat dealers etc when the company goes tits up - but they do get protection if they paid by C/Card. I understand your dislike as a dealer though - it takes you a long time to get the cash, they charge you big fees etc.

Just out of interest, does the credit card company liability thing work if you get messed about? For example if the boat's seriously late like Codprawn's was?

No one knows the details of why cod's boat was late, as he hasn't shared that information in the public domain - so it would be presumptive to comment; but in theory the card co is responsible for the delivery of the product/goods/service if the vendor fails (so in effect they would be expected to refund you so you could walk away). It may be necessary to have agreed a contractually binding delivery date (or at least to go totally unreasonably beyond the expected delivery date).

I wasn't presuming anything about Codder's boat BTW, it was just a handy example.
