"It is unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money - that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do.
The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot - it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better."
John Ruskin, 1819-1900

Restricted trading area
Some manufacturers restrict their dealers to certain areas. This is to encourage people to deal in their own area supporting the local service-dealer. In these cases the goods must be collected from the shop, or delivered by the shop.
Warning to Overseas Viewers
We receive inquiries from America concerning some of our stock. Whilst we are pleased that you are taking the time to look at our pages, we must point out that the products are only available within New Zealand and the Pacific Islands at reasonable cost. You can obtain the same, or similar items in Europe or America for less money, and the freight would make any import from New Zealand un-economic. PLEASE NOTE if you are living in USA and would like a Compost Tumbler, phone 1-800-880-2345. Their Tumbler is very similar to ours. We do not reply to overseas mail unless we consider that the sender has fully explored the local scene first. Mail from New Zealand, Australia, and the Islands will be replied to.
Free Information Sheets
