Right guys n gals, here's the deal. I mailed Tom & Erik at SVS and he has let me know his discount rates etc. I have done some calculations to give you an idea of what discounts are available. The discounts on the sub are not huge but by buying and shipping in bulk, the savings can be made in shipping, duties and VAT. I also got answers to some other questions some were asking: 1. What would be the minimum amount of subs that would entail a discount? 2. What percentage discount would be available and would that change depending quantities ordered? If you ordered 2 or more to the same location the discount would be 5%. If you ordered 5 or more to the same location we could up that to 10%. More quantity than 10 and we would have to consider it on a case by case basis. We would include a t-shirt with every sub as long as you got 3 or more. More quantity than 10 and we would have to consider it on a case by case basis. 3. Would they all have to be the same model? You would not need to get all the same model._ 4. Would the shipping charges be cheaper i.e. at the moment you quote $120 to ship to my address. Would the cost of 3 models be $360 or much cheaper? I will have to get the shipping quote for you on Monday when BaxGlobal is open for business. It will be less in total by a pretty good amount in total (maybe $50-100 less per sub)._ 5. If all are paid for on one credit card, and shipped to a single address, how would any future warranty claims be affected? If all names and addresses were given prior to ordering, would that suffice for warranty purposes? All SVS warranties are fully transferable so anyone who owns it can make a warranty claim. It would be better if all the owners let us know their information up front for ease of processing, but you could just do that when you order. So I did some ROUGH calculations (assuming shipping costs etc) based on a 20-39PC+ @ $825.00. These costs are per sub and based on dividing the lower shipping costs: One sub: $825 - subwoofer, $150 shipping, $43.88 duties, $214.51 VAT = $1189.51 (£738.40) 2 - 4 subs (with a 5% discount): $783.75 - subwoofer, $100 shipping, $39.77 duties, $154.66 VAT = $1078.18 (£669.30) = 9.5% saving. 5+ subs (with a 10% discount): $742.50 - subwoofer, $75 shipping, $36.79 duties, $143.06 VAT = $997.35 (£619.12) = 16.2% saving. This is not intended to be a 'wheeler dealer' type thread for me - more a common sense thing. If 3 or 4 are ordering at the same time, why pay 4 lots of shipping when we can all ship together and make a small saving. I am not really interested in waiting around for people to make their minds up and as previously mentioned, I am willing to stump up the money on my credit card providing that monies are paid in full to me before ordering. If I only get another interested party, then a near 10% saving isn't too bad. Of course, if you go for a more expensive model, then the savings would be greater One other thing, I quoted them to ship to a central London address (Soho) as this seemed the cheapest option. People would have to collect from there or I could get them shipped out from there which as Ian. J has already mentioned would most probably eat up any savings that you had already made. I could ask for other locations to be shipped to so am open to suggestions but my office seemed like a good idea as someone is always in so little chance of missing a delivery. I will be ordering within the next 2-3 weeks so if anybody is interested, let me know. As with any of these type of deals, a certain amount of trust is needed and all I am doing is passing on 'possible savings'. All I am interested in is saving a few more quids on importing a groovy sub so if this becomes too much hassle for me, I'll just order mine on my own - so let's keep it simple and we'll see what interest this generates. Mods, if this is in the wrong forum, please move but I guessed as this is a follow-on from the 'importing SVS' thread, this would be the logical place. best regards all, simon.
