And the other concern, is, of course a general concern when buying anything from an individual located outside the states. Best way to alleviate this is to make it clear how payments, shipping, time frame, etc would be handled so that both parties feel safe in the transaction.
I know the ARB one comes with templates to make it as easy as possible with a low possibility of mistake. Anything like this for this kit?
2nd gen only, or 1st gen as well?
That being said, if everything checks out to my satisfaction, I'd be interested for that price.
Well. Basically what I'm doing is looking at interest. Once I see if there is enough, id post much more detailed information.
For example, id probably try and get a few pics of them mounted on Tacos as well as detailed photos so that you guys can see their quality. I'm also going to be the first to look at their quality and be very picky. If I notice it is not a good product, this will be called off. However, as far as I have seen, their product is comparable to any other snorkel.
As far as payments, shipping, etc.
Payments - id have to talk with the guys at the company. Depending on the deal I work with them, it might be pay half or pay completely and I ship kind of thing. Remember I am not making any money whatsoever on this, so I do not plan on buying the stock myself, to then ship it. I am just doing this, as I saw an opportunity for people who need this kind of thing.
Shipping - Usually USPS is cheaper than anyone here. Shipping to the states is not any hassle at all since we are part of you in a way... just like Hawaii, Alaska, etc.
Time frame - Depends on how they set me up. As far as I can see, they have some stock on warehouse, but it is likely that they will have to make more if this group buy/regular buy catches on. Also factor in the time I have to dedicate to pick up the parts and ship them away. I am the owner/boss of my company, so I do have work to do and won't be picking up/shipping everyday. Ill try and be more specific on this later, but basically, as soon as it is made, it's on a box getting shipped to you.
I would figure they will be able to hook people with both Gen 1 and Gen 2 Tacos, since their way of thinking is: "If it doesn't exist, we will make it custom for you."
