Well... me and my big mouth. I'd forgotten that it seems that a few years ago I got approval from Yanmar to buy from Torreson. It also seems that SOMEONE saw my post above - and NOW I can't order from them anymore.
So, a little bit ago, I placed my order with Laborde - and now I read this and it seems likely that Laborde ratted me out?
SO, IF YOU WORK FOR LABORDE I'M CANCELLING MY ORDER. I'll order it delivered elsewhere, and pay someone to ship it to me.
I've been discussing this very situation with the folks at Yanmar. Along with a LOT of other people, I very much resent being told who I have to buy from! This IS the reason so many folks don't repower
with Yanmar. They protect territories, which keeps bad dealers from having to compete with businesses that actually do a good job. Therefore, there's no incentive to perform - when you are the only game
in town, there's no incentive to treat customers right. And this is WRONG. I buy from folks I WANT to buy from, not from someone I HAVE to buy from.
I'm starting another thread on this, and I'm going to email
the discussion link to the folks at Yanmar. This isn't right...
In any case, I'm going to start another thread
