Re: Arnold's Boat Shop Sydney Australia

Definitely cheaper than receiving nothing for 929 bucks.

Re: Arnold's Boat Shop Sydney Australia

Look at it this way 18580 versus 14000 spent at Arnold's the saving is 4580.
What is 700 bucks lost versus 4580 saved?

Playing off a handful of reputable retailers can net the same or better savings. I did try Arnolds once and got something reasonably, but not exceptionally, cheap. It's easy to tell they're drop shippers for the most part and this coupled with a generally reported abysmal customer service made for a very arms length experience. No thanks. If I want a bargain that badly, I'll buy direct from overseas.

Re: Arnold's Boat Shop Sydney Australia

Dealing with a drop-shipper may be "cheap," but it’s close to playing musical chairs. As long as there’s enough immediate cash-flow from new customers to keep the suppliers from cutting them off, things are great. But the whole business is a house of cards just waiting for a slowdown. You don’t want to have orders pending when the money runs out.

After a short visit to an ANZ branch the claim was accepted with conditions.

"Sailing Again Smoother Waters:
We are a consortium of established marine retailers who collectively have purchased all of the unused stock of the old Arnold's. We bought it from Worrells Solvency & Forensic Accountants.

Creditors elected Worrells on May 21, 2021 to be the official liquidators of Nold Trading Pty Ltd (the operator of the previous Arnold's Boat Shop), following Worrells' earlier appointment as administrator of Arnold's.

Having also purchased the Arnold's web domain (but not the old Arnold's business itself), we will retail that unsold stock and new deliveries, under the banner of www.arnoldsboatshop.com.au.

None of the members of the consortium have any connection whatsoever with the previous owner or operations of Arnold's.

It's going to be a better journey for everyone - we invite you to come join us.

Authorized by Pitcher Partners (Brisbane)
Business advisors to the Consortium

It's probaby worth noting that the website Contact Us page is just a message submission form with no address, email, phone number,company ABN or details of who the "consortium" is.

Judging from current reviews no better than the previous version.

I like that “unsold stock" that surely consist of parts that I and others paid for and where never supplied with.
