Fowlers

Postby BigBob » Fri Feb 07, 2020 11:05 am

Some of you may have noticed a lot of items listed by Fowlers on Ebay at the moment. https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/fowlersparts ... 7675.l2562
In fact, there are nearly 200,000 new items listed for sale, and anyone who has ever sold anything on Ebay will know, it`s quite a time consuming exercise adding photos and a comprehensive description etc.
So........... clearly these listings have been done by a computer program, which is fine............. except Fowlers can`t possibly have all these items in stock.
I`ve checked quite a few of the items they have listed and many of them haven`t been available for years, so they are going to find themselves in trouble when they can`t deliver on unobtainable parts.
In addition, they have added 10/% to the official Suzuki list price as well so be warned.
Robinsons will not only give you 10% off the list price but will tell you straight if it`s obtainable as well.
I thought I ought to flag this up before anyone tries to pay over the odds for unobtainium.

Cheers for the tip Bob. Had noticed them listed and tbh I took them at their word that they were in stock stupidly :roll:

Good spot!
I reckon they have taken someone on who wants to make a career enhancing name for themselves in their parts and on - line store!
That said Fowler’s have been pretty good in my previous dealings.
Cheers.
