Scanstrut (Where to buy)

Hello,

It seems we get ripped off locally so I am going to buy a scanstrut online and ship it Internationally.

Anyone able to reccomend a place to buy online?

Cheers

AG

Re: Scanstrut (Where to buy)

I think the price we pay in New Zealand for Scanstrut is fine. After you add Duty and GST to my below example, It makes Marine deals NZ look pretty cheap really.

See below for Defender Price of $289.99 USD and in the same picture its about $80 USD for shipping.

About $370 USD, which equals $566 NZD if you see the picture below also.

Add 10% duty = $623NZD and then we'll add 15% GST for the total cost of our imported product of $716.45NZD

Marine deals in NZ sell the same product for $629 NZD with free shipping as you can see from the other picture below.

The Scanstrut LMM-1 online in USA (defender) is $779 = $1180 NZD. With GST thats about $1350. I don't know about the 10% duty as I have never paid that except when importing clothes.

Lustys quoted $2200 for the LMM-1.

....Rip offf (still a rip off even if I added shipping @ 80USD)
