Reliable Lund Dealers

6 posts in this topic

I've purchased three boats in the last ten years and I'm not having much luck with "service." My latest lund purchase was to be ready April 1 (a bad omen) and now "should be" ready April 25 due to it not arriving from Lund. I'll never know if this is the real story. I'm sure some people have good boat buying experiences. I've found that the boat dealers/salesman seem aren't the squarest of dealers and while I'm sure those of you with friends that are in the business get taken care of does anyone have any tips in assuring things go as promised in writing when you don't personally know the dealer? Thanks. My newest bad experience dealer is the "largest in the region." I didn't even shop anywhere else I just went in there and purchased the boat, with very little "haggling."

I know exactly what you are talking about. I went to a dealer once (in June) and learned that the boat I liked was not in stock, but the dealer coincidentally put in an order for the exact boat I wanted and it will be delivered/set-up "in a week or two guaranteed". I gave my down payment and asked they sign on the purchase agreement that I could back out of the deal for any reason (i.e. if the boat did not arrive by 2 weeks as told). Turns out I waited over two weeks and after numerous phone calls and no answers, they called me after the promised delivery date and said "good news, your boat is in the factory getting painted today!". I told them I will be in ASAP to get my deposit back and cancel the deal. I don't think they "ordered" that boat before I walked into the store....

I later found an even better boat that same week for a cheaper price. I didn't lose in the end.

I'm sick of dealers jerking my chain telling me information that was false. If they are straight up, cool. I can live with it. Unfortunately a lot talk through to seal a deal instead of come out and tell me a straight, honest answer. There are a lot of horror stories, but it comes with a busy market. I just wish some dealers would express how flooded the boat/motor market is from day one.

anyone who has tips they've used on any dealer would also work.

Another vote for Nelson Marine. Great fast reliable honest service. I wish all companies worked as well. They have a web site it is nelsonmarineboats. They just sync and lined my carbs. Hope to get out this weekend!! Ask for Tim

I bought my rig at Hannay's on Central Ave. in north Minneapolis. They might not be the lowest price but they have great service.

    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture. 
    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
