It broke even for me. Taxes to pick it up and shipping were the same, and I drove the wifes car up for training at 27 mpg verses the diesel at 14. I saved having it delivered.
Yes taxes, if you pick it up its like buying something from a local store or buying something on vacation, they charge sales tax for that state. if they ship it out of state they don't have to charge taxes. Check your quote, see if it has taxes if your picking it up. If they ship it in state you get both.
don't think it does, just like any store, if it carry it out the door, tax. Same thing if you order on line from a store in the same state as the shipping address you will see taxes on it most of the time.
Billy J. if you get it in the truck bed it will be very tight. I was originally thinking the same thing but the work surface is 4' by 4' the outside dimension is something like 5' by 6'. with the inside of the fenders being 49" on most full size trucks it would have to go in at an angle, probably have some hanging out or at lest be balanced up on the fender wells? When I got there and saw it first hand I was a little surprised at the size, thats why I ended up adding to the shop while I waited for it to come.
Yup Diverdude that's what i was thinking too that's why i'm taking the trailer, don't want it tetering on the fenderwelds,sure don't want to waste a day of playing if i had to go back and get it lol.
Well i made the trip up there wednesday and done the training. Unloaded the table yesterday and had it up and running and cutting out the patterns we trained on at site to make sure everything was working correctly. IT WORKED Hurray lol. Now all i gotta do is learn the software so it comes natural. Steve and Nikkie were fantastic. Only had one issue with mine and plasma cutter came from the factory messed up, so Nikki got me another one next day aired and it showed up here before i had the table and all electronics hooked up! Awesome!!!! I'll get some pics up today now that its up and running. Diverdude i think yours shipped Tuesday,well they said one shipped that day and i assumed it was yours .
Alleykat make sure ya take some tarps to cover it in case it rains,I took a small tarp but it wasn't big enough so had to run to ada and got it covered before the rain set in. It rain on me almost all the way home.
I hope it was, I haven't heard for them but might call today. I know they are very busy trying to keep up with the orders. Waiting is killing me. I have everything to get started but the machine. Have even drawn up about 10 things to cut.
I did call and ask about the shipping vs taxes cost.Shipping is $200 more which isn't much but I probably wont wanna go separately to take the class.Were just gonna go ahead and pick it up so my friend that does all my design work can get a feel for the whole 3 program process of the table.Hes my new appointed operator,he just doesn't know it yet.
Couldn't stand it and called Nikki, said my table is done, just needs to be crated and shipped. Allycat; for that difference I would pick it up, for me it was only about $25 difference and I couldn't have picked it up right now if I wanted. Have you tried the demo programs? I down loaded all 3 programs and looked up you-tube videos on how to use them to get a handle on it before going.
