Yanmar parts prices!

Bought an assundry of parts from a local dealer. Wow! I saw a 30%+ increase in prices since the last time I purchased the same parts. Best to buy a couple extra as the next time I'm sure there will be another increase.

Re: Yanmar parts prices!

aa, the world has gone nuts with inflation. I've seen $10 oil filters change to $20 in one year. Some groceries, up 50% in one year. Putting you money into "inventory" can be a way better payoff than other investments.

Not sure where you are, but see if you can get a-hold of Mastry in St Pete. I bought all my spares from them.

At one time one could buy directly from a main distributor like Mack Boring..Unfortunately that changed and one must purchase from the closest dealer to you ..with exception ..if no dealer is available. With that policy change I've noticed a disperency in pricing between dealers for the same parts..

Re: Yanmar parts prices!

It's like that all over. Porsche synchro rings that were $12.00 in 2002 are $95.00 now. I was glad that I had collected a bunch of old Porsche stuff that nobody wanted much years ago, when we started the big sell off to go cruising it equaled a good chunk for the cruising kitty.
Sorry for your pain. Big thanks to our financial wizards that are making our savings worthless.

I got price quotes for a new starter from Mastry and from my local dealer...I could pay for a round trip flight, rental car and overnight hotel and still save a few bucks by flying to Florida to pick it up myself. NO I'm not kidding, I checked the numbers. I ended up, and will continue to pay a friend $50 for his time plus shipping to send me stuff. I don't have a problem with somebody turning a profit but more than %200 markup above Mastry is just crazy.

Thanks to the Gods that I have a Universal / Kubota motor! I'd be happy with a Beta Marine for the same reason...

Call the dealer out on this ********. Say that the other dealer is charging way less and you're not going to take it. Many times, they'll match

Typically that would be a wise strategy. Unfortunately there is only one dealer here making it a convenient monopoly. This is their franchise district. To be fair, I have locally bought many small items like belts, zincs, filters etc. in exchange I frequently pick the brains of the techs and they have been generous in providing tips or suggestions. That was how I justified the higher prices to myself. True, I could head over to Tortola and bring stuff back from their saving a few dollars. My process has been to give the local guys first shot, if I don't feel raped or I do need the part immediately I buy from them. If the price just sounds ridiculous or I have lots of time, I look elsewhere. The times I've tried to suggest that the local prices are not in line with others they've not been interested in reducing the cost. If I had a monopoly I probably wouldn't be interested in negotiating either!! Regarding Yanmar pricing---the same starter in the Miami/Ft Lauderdale area was $200 more than St Pete but still about $200 less than my local dealer. There seems to be a really odd pricing distribution system in place.

Re: Yanmar parts prices!

I've found that sometimes it helps to just say flat out "You know, I want to keep my business local and I want to give you guys my business because (whatever) but I'm just tapped out and those other guys are way less. Can't you do something for me on the price, meet them part way at least?"

Often at least they can give you the "trade" discount.
