Sold sled because of COVID

Recommended Posts

I almost sold everything driving up to the NCDN in the pouring rain. Then we changed rooms to Kap, and once in Moonbeam,  I was back on the sledding bandwagon..:rotflmao:

They received more warmth and pouring rain. Kap had very very little rain. It's now snowing,  and more forecast for tonight,  and cooler temps for tomorrow and further on. Cochranes still warm tomorrow.  I did not want to believe it, but driving thru,  I'm glad I drove another hour. I will not ride further east past Moonbeam

However!.. myself, I’m used to subpar conditions coming from the far south!!.... that being said I’m sure everything up there looks much more enticing than what I’ve rode in the past this year!

Things are not perfect in Kap. But it's alot better then east of here. And forecast is better. Snow depth is better.

It sounds like Lockharts are whoring out machines this year.   I know my dealer said he has lost a lot of customers to them this year over price.   

They are doing business as usual   Good value on trades with a fair discount on the MSRP   have been doing that since I have known them   20 years now

Had a dealer like that.

We found him  by luck, and always a pleasure to deal with and great pricing for both trade and new.

Could go a couple years without seeming him, and he would still know you by name.

BRP forced his hand to upgrade (spend lots of money might never recover) or lose his franchise. He didn't upgrade. Too bad, for all involved really.

I am still waiting to hear back from your dealer . Lockharts  are on the ball . 

X2. And been so for years. Applies to sales, service and parts. Energy Powersports in Oakville are a relatively new dealership in Oakville that have been good for me with parts, and they are much closer. If Skidoo ever builds another machine that I want, I will check out Energy's sales philosophy, but I suspect they might not want to match Lockharts price, particularly if I have a trade-in.

Energy is a complete joke. I have been in there 10 times. They talked to me twice and both times only when i ordered parts. The last time I went there bought a brand new skidoo suit which was absolute shite. They wouldnt even return my call. 

I had to explain to the sales manager how to conduct business since I have 4 BRP products (well 3 now)in my garage and that when we are talking a 700 dollar suit versus a 20k sled it doesnt make sense not to call me back. 

 

They will never get another dime out of me.

Did you try mcintoish. I really like their service and they setup sled well and do a proper pdi. 900 blew an ignition coil up north. When I got it back home doug find code and took part off on crashed sled with less miles then ours to get is back up and running. Part was back ordered from doo for about two weeks.
