CONTRACTORS INSTALL PRE-PURCHASED UNITS!
I have a mobile home that needed a new furnace. My cheapest quote was 1850.00 for 10K size furnace only installed in my trailer.
I went to a used trailer parts store site out of Manteca, CA and had a Coleman 10K furnace shipped to my house in Sunnyvale by Conway trucking. They delivered into my house. Total cost of furnace was 522.00. There were no taxes and shipping was 25.00.
I called several install companies and none balked at installing it. We got it installed for 650.00 which 500.00 was paid for by a weatherization program my renter qualified for with her low income, so we only had out of pocket 150.00.
But still 1147.00 total cost is a lot cheaper than 1850.00. It was a guaranteed install. The only con was it took 5 to 7 days to get here. I have since ordered several items for my pickup online and have saved a bundle on taxes and shipping. Shipping is free after X amount is spent and most of my items cost quite a bit. Very happy with it.
