Why is Sale Pricing Not Shown?
There are, throughout our website a number of items that have a caption indicating "E-Mail Us for Sale Price". The reason for this is what is known as "MAP", or Minimum Advertised Price. MAP is a voluntarily agreement that all legitimate manufacturer authorized retailers enter into with their authorized USA supplier, usually the manufacturer, and in some cases, the official USA distribution arm designated by the manufacturer. According to such agreements, retailers can usually sell MAP restricted items for any price they choose, but may not display in any print or online advertising, a price below the Minimum Advertised Price.
We adhere to MAP restrictions because our relationship with our authorized suppliers demands it. We are an honorable, honest company - we keep agreements with vendors AS WELL as our customers, because it is the right way to do business. Such adherence also guarantees our customers...YOU...get proper and prompt service from these manufacturers should you need it, not to mention advance notice on exciting new model launches, which often hit the market in extremely limited quantities known throughout the industry as "allocations". Dealers that do not abide by requested pricing policies are generally cut off from such products, not to mention post sale service.
We respect our MAP contracts, and wherever the scope of that agreement permits us an avenue to supply product for a transactional selling price below MAP, we make those prices available to you in the easiest, quickest manner allowed us.
We handle MAP restrictions in an easy to obtain format:
