The nerve of some people!

I've got a Yardman 8 24 advertised for $275...looking to get $250 at least. I.ve got new skids, scraper, welded on a four inch strip on the bottom of the bucket so I could attach said scrapers and skids....motor serviced and sweet, tranny serviced and adjusted....you know the drill. I just got messaged by someone that offered me $150....cause he's a RESELLER.....***...I do the work and he makes the coin?????? UGH...NO

I would tell him to go ask Home Depot if they will sell him a new snowblower at a 40% discount..because he is a reseller.

it never ceases to amaze me what people say anymore. I was talking about it in the reseller thread. people telling you their wife has cancer or they had a death in the family or I should give them a break because they too are a patriots fan or are Italian or like Corona beer also.

Or they ask if you are a "flipper" like it's a dirty word and your price is "way too high". everytime I think I've heard it all , another bozo comes outta the woodwork.

seems to me you are asking a very fair price. wait until a snowstorm and get $100 more.

I might do the same if I was reselling stuff. It doesn't hurt to ask, and once in a while it might pay off. From your side, the answer is that you are a reseller too, and that you've already done the work. The "discount" would apply to the ones that haven't been touched yet, and those aren't ready for sale yet. Tongue in cheek: Ask him how many he is willing to sell you at the 40% discount because you are also a reseller.

I'll probably resell mine some day.

I love my snowblower. Every beat of it's little heart is one mine won't have to take.

perhaps raising the price higher will discourage a reseller from even thinking about making the dumb low ball offer? (or at least draw out a more reasonable offer from him)

I don't really have a problem with him making a low offer, but I don't like the "reasoning" approach. I've made low offers, and when refused, I politely said ok, thanks or I raised my offer.

I feel your pain, have a completely rebuilt 32" Ariens listed for $1,000 or BR0.....
Was offered $350.
My ad reads like this ......

Machine has been dissembled, inspected, and rebuilt.
Installed all these NEW PARTS
12HP Briggs & Stratton engine with 120-volt electric start and recoil backup
48 watt led light
Heated hand grips
Chute control cable
Axle bearings
Impeller bearing
Friction wheel
Auger bushings
Shear pins
Wear shoes
Transmission & Auger Belts

Gearbox has been inspected, filled with 00 grease, auger shafts cleaned & polished.
Every moving part has been adjusted & lubricated.
It has the professional cast iron gearbox, locking axle, snow hog tires, remote chute control.





But was offered $350.... kind of offending offer considering the amount of work done and new parts, but that is what ya have to deal with. The replacement today machine is $2500 and not as quality built.
Still early in the year yet, kinda why I'm getting out of the hobby of rebuilding & selling.

Going to focus on completing my current machine projects, and my last machine will be an Ariens double auger 32" monster.

Ariens 24" 910962 7HP
Ariens 24" 924117 Modified Pro 342cc / 15.50 GT.. Currently Under Construction and testing trials commenced .......
Ariens 32" 924044 Modified Pro 342cc / 16.50 GT
Ariens / Troy Bilt 36" Frankenblower
Ariens 32" 924??? Double auger Monster TBD.....

i usually won't deal with idiots that pretty much cut your price in half just because they are a reseller especially if you already got something listed for a pretty fair price. i will sometimes even send insulting response. if the machine needed work it might be understandable but if it is all ready to go then lowballing like that is just a A-hole thing to do. had a couple idiots like that message me about stuff i have for sale lately. i guess since it is the end of the year they feel like they can low ball me on already discounted end of season prices that are firm. most places you sell stuff have user profiles now and show what the other person is selling so it makes it easy to see that they are a reseller and making themselves look stupid.
