What are you paying for Aspen fuel?

Recommended Posts

To set the record straight.

The RRP of Aspen2 FRT in 5litre cans is £18.98 in 5litre cans.

 

Most dealers will be similar in price, but there are always some who like to be a little different. Some 'mark up' the price, whist some feel the need to discount it.

 

The 'norm' is to sell small quantity at full RRP, but many dealers will give a little discount on a volume purchase.

We give 5% discount on 6 or more cans over the counter if asked nicely, whilst giving 10% on a full pallet or 200 litre barrel.

 

If the £15 that Geoff pays includes VAT then the dealer is either a very good friend or a very poor businessman as there is no margin left at that price.

If the £15 is plus vat then the price is £18.00 which is pretty well spot on with the 5% discount.

 

We are happy to supply any Arbtalker with Aspen by carrier at the above discounts, and remember that a full pallet of 54 cans will be delivered free to mainland UK (exc highlands and islands)

 

To be fair it is a special price I negotiated, as I get lots of kit there and they like me:001_smile:

 

Either that or they just want to get me out the door...:biggrin:

I get 10% on more than 6 cans, normally get 12 at a time.

Some weeks I can do 3k worth of work on 1 can, others a can a day for £300 but not had a problem with a saw for 2 years of running on it nd just makes life easier being grab and go with it.

Sorry to hear that Steve,

 

We are seeing a big growth in Aspen sales from most of our dealers right now, This shouldnt excuse them from running out but sometimes large stocks can be wiped out very quickly if a professional user comes and buys up a large quantity out of the blue.

 

I suggest that all of you regular Aspen users call your supplier a few days ahead of collection to reserve stock. We can then get the product to the dealer as quickly as next day if they order before 12 if needed. Following this procedure should mean you dont have to run out again in the future. :thumbup1:

 

Thanks and yeah I'll call them in advance and maybe I should stock up on more.

In long term it would far easier if someone stocked it closer to home / Haverfordwest. Cheers, steve
