Ariens dealer wants $150 round trip delivery pickup fee? This normal?

So I called this one authorized repair center for warranty services and they wanted $150.....

Is this normal? they are about 5 miles from me.
I could probably just hire someone off CL or something??


Anybody know if this price range is OK?

This is in Long Island NY area,.


Thanks

Talk to Ariens. They need to be aware of their dealer's policy.

Worst case scenario, you can rent a truck from Home Depot for $20.

Yeah what is funny is that HD is on the Ariens list but they will just pass the repair to another facility...


You think the policy is really borderline fraud??immoral?

Uber -

I called a couple of dealers when I was looking into Ariens.
All of them except for 1 would do a pickup/dropoff if one was Exactly in the neighborhood....

Otherwise, the pickup/delivery rates were fairly inline with the OP

I don't think this is just an "Ariens" thing. Brick and mortar establishments are really feeling the crunch from online stores and also forums such as this and also youtube. Lots of us who would never consider making our own repairs now jump right in because there are support groups, forums and how to videos such as Donyboy 73 to help us out. I've made several repairs on my appliances too, now there are so many videos. All that to say that I think dealers are simply trying to keep their doors open and some of the more lax ones are going to make it up in any way they can. Their operating costs have risen while their business has dropped off. I'm not making excuses for them. It's just that I think all these things combined are making them set these crazy "fees".

One of the first questions asked also will be,"Did you purchase it here?"

Tuna, how many round trips will have to be made to offset the savings you enjoyed?
