    Delco price list hurting the industry,

    Delco price list hurting the industry,



    I titled that specifically to get you guys to take a look. Now help us fix the problem.



    I think the price list in way to low, used by many new guys that actually follow it. So letís help ourselves by updating our part.

    If you forward the info to Robert he has promised me he would update the site and have it reflect new numbers.



    You may post the numbers here if you like.



    Keep in mind I posted this because I felt this current list does no one any good. Its way to low.



    The link to list http://www.dcs1.com/del/pricing.html






    Roberts E-mail delco@dcs1.com



    Thanks
    Ron Musgraves

    I've been saying (for quite some time now) that list has been creating lowballers for years.

    I especially despise the line about what to charge if you have no insurance.

    I agree with Michael. The no insurance contractor is the Low Baller and even considering him with a pricing option is out of the question.

    Since their pricing has been the same for 15 years now, it is no surprise.

    Delco's pricing is high on parts, but chems and machines they are pretty competitive. I was talking with Robert yesterday, and he is working on something so that he can become more competitive. That would be welcome, and I for one would start using them for parts, as long as the pricing was somewhat competitive.

    I think that changing the pricing would do a lot to help the industry as a lot of people look at that price guide and think that is current pricing.

    If prices were current then I think that everyone would benefit and the new people into the industry might not start out with lowballing prices if that guide was updated.

    The problem with a list like this it does not take in account the market that you are in. Cleaning a hood or a truck in Selma Alabama and making a comparison to a truck in any other region is ridiculous. To even suggest that contractors not to carry insurance & workers comp. nears collusion and even price fixing.

    I'll second that motion . . .

    Did you try calling them about what might be wrong with it? They have always been way beyond helpful if I have had a problem with one of their machines.

    They are not doing away with the list. So we should fix it.

    Customers get it and they get the wrong baseline.

    I have my lists, your not going to stop this.
