I think the solution for a Harman dealer is very simple: Advertise/sell the stove for $1793. Why do I need to know the price a dealer pays for the stove body & the door separately?? Then ,If the customer wants to upgrade to a gold door then just add the door price difference & you're done. The bottom line price of a TLC, to the customer should be $1793.00
(dealer costs are meaningless to me....All I want to know is what can I buy the "whole" stove for? )
I don't see a problem here??
A Chevy dealer doesn't sell his car for $14,000.00, but then deliver it without an engine unless the customer pays $4,000.00 more, does he? He charges $18,000.00 for the car (with engine) in the first place.
Why complicate a very easy thing??
On the other hand:
If I was an unscrupulous Harman dealer who intended to cheat the public, I would advertise a TLC at $1605.00. (we are speaking hypothetically here, of course! ) When the customer was hooked & had started to sign the paperwork (or whenever I thought it was best to get away with it), I would then spring the little trap saying: " Oh, I forgot to mention......That $1605.00 price doesn't include a door."
(at which point, (switching roles here) if I was the customer I would say: " Funny thing......I forgot to mention that I am a Mass. State investigator &.........You are under arrest!......You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say........"
(Being the wise guy I can be sometimes, as the owner was being led away in cuffs I'm sure I would add: " BTW.....While your stoves don't come with a door, you can be assured that our jail cells do!"....Book him Danno!!
