I need some advice here.
I have someone lined up to lay and finish my timber floor. They have already delivered the Ultraset SF Polyurethane Timber Floor Adhesive. There are 14 10L drums. For supply, freight and GST I have been invoiced for $4480.00. That's about $315/10L drum. Is this insane?????
I just called local hardware and I can get 15L drums of same product (don't know brand but all their brands are the same price) for $181.25. I would only need 10 drums so a total price of $1812.50. I can get it delivered for $16.50 or pick up myself.
My plan of attack was to phone and discuss their price with the one I can get. If they will not price-match then they can have theirs back and I will supply the product myself. This is like a "progress payment and is part of the total price of ~$22000 to lay and finish floor. I will then take the $4480 off what I was to pay them.
Surely, regardless of what brand...their brand is not worth nearly 2.5 times what any other brand is. Am I just being ripped off here?????
