Flex XC3401 VRG......Introductory offer *UPDATE*

Flex XC3401 VRG......Introductory offer *UPDATE*
Finally some good news from the Flex agents Clap

For those of you that I haven't yet mentioned this to, this is what has been happening....... Flex was originally sold here by Action Bolt who have since lost the distribution rights to Newco. I had originally, as far back as February, engaged in some discussions with Action Bolt regarding the Flex 3401 and 3403 polishers and a possible group buy from them if I could get the numbers. Considering they were just about to loose the distribution rights as well as the fact that they didn't stock the polishers at all, they were reluctant to step up to the plate. At the end of the day it was probably better because there may/may not have been warranty issues further down the line with a new distributor Confused1

Anyways fast forward to around 3 weeks or so ago and I finally made some headway with the new agents. After e-mails and phone calls up and down I finally got some concrete news from them this afternoon. They have agreed to supply me with a demo unit for the Meguiars detail day next saturday for us to play with and actually see in the 'flesh' (I will try to make some arrangements for the CPT guys, I havent forgotten you Bluebiggrin )

From very early on in my conversations with Flex I highlighted the high retail price (somewhere in the region of R5000 - R5500) as one of the biggest obstacles in the 3401's path to becoming a key player in the local detailing market. With the DeWalt, Makita and recently the Meguiars DA's all under the R4000 price point, the Flex was going to have a hard time swaying over prospective buyers.

Anyways to cut a long story short and get to the part you all waiting for, the guys at Flex have really come to the party and have made us an incredible offer (IMHO)

Providing we can place a minimum order of 5 units and I pay them COD they are prepared to let us have the machines for R3500 excl vat, thats R3990 in total. They have stressed that this is a one time only offer that they will not repeated again Uhoh2

To properly put the deal into perspective consider the fact that the regular wholesale price of the 3401 to retailers is R400 more than what they are offering it to us for.... I think it is a cracking deal Clap

Thoughts, suggestions, etc............Discuss Bluebiggrin

Edited to add : Delivery is 5 to 7 weeks Wink

*UPDATE* Just got off the line with Flex and got some more good news for the guys who will be making use of the introductory offer. They will be supplying our introductory machines with the padded bag thrown in as a free extra Clap

RE: Flex XC3401 VRG......Introductory offer
This padded bag for your Flex machine is now also included with the introductory offer. It was originally available as a R298 (ex vat) extra for the machine, but Flex have decided to sweeten the deal and chuck them in for free !

It is nicely padded by the looks of things and is roomy enough to include a few pads and small bottles of polishes, etc Clap

RE: Flex XC3401 VRG......Introductory offer
I think this is a great offer. Unfortunately, having just bought the G220, I will have to decline.

Nice one for all the effort put into clinching this deal.

RE: Flex XC3401 VRG......Introductory offer
Thanks for the follow up Dave, looking forward to seeing the machine in action next week. I will step off the fence when I see the back to back results against the G220 on the Makita BO4060.

If you guys get to use/buy one you will not be disappointed. This machine is the real deal and sooooo versatile. Makes doing paint correction a much more enjoyable job.

RE: Flex XC3401 VRG......Introductory offer *UPDATE*
Just another update for all those interested who were wanting info regarding payments, etc.

Each of you will be invoiced individually. Upon confirming your orders I will need all the details you require on the invoice (cc, company names, reg numbers, vat numbers, etc). Payments by EFT should be accepted, I will have confirmation from their accounts dept soon.

If anyone has any other questions feel free to ask Wink
