why are we getting so badly punished here in south africa?
why i ask...a fluke 1653B multifunction tester
south africa - R33000.00
UK - R8000.00
hilti GX 120 ME
south africa - R8000.00
UK - R3200.00
I purchased some equipment a while back and the amount of money i spent... i could have flown to the USA had a 2 week holiday purchased the equipment and returned and it wouldnt have cost what i paid for it here in south africa
the only reason i purchased it here was for the warranty and backup service...i am not gona mention the companies name but i can tell you now i will never make that mistake again.
something i dont understand if you buy for example a hilti product in china the warranty should be valid world wide at any hilti branch...next time i spend more than R10 000 on a product i will shop worldwide first.
