    Layaway

    I was thinking maybe it would be a good Idea for us to do a layaway plan for people that want detectors and can't afford them right off.
    I would charge no interest and no catches.
    When I was a kid I loved to fish and always wanted a good fishing rod but couldn't afford one.
    I met an ole timer who built them. I mean Good ones. I stressed to him while visiting his shop one day, "maan, I would love to have one of those"
    He built me a rod and let me make payments. When I paid it off he presented me with my custom steelhead fishing rod. I'll never forget that.

    Maybe I could help people someone out like this.

    what do you think?

    Good Idea?

    Sounds like a great idea 4-H. Seems asthough it would tie up some money if you had some high end units sitting on layaway. But its great if you can do it.

    Re: Layaway

    You could have a waiting list. Take down the names of the people, and receive payments on say up to three member layaways at a time. And keep the others on a waiting list, as soon as one person has theres payed off move the next person in line up the list to start receing payments on a lay-o-way. And you would need a few rules.

    A few examples.

    1. Agree to pay weekly, or Monthly.
    2. Lay-o-ways need to be payed in 3-6 months.
    3. Only one item at a time.
    4. Nothing over $1500.00 in value, or less.
    5. Must have some form of income.
    6. Over 16 years of age, with parents permision.
    7. Regular participant , and good standing member of T-net.

    When I was about 14 I bought a $350 Stereo that way, and at 24 a $500 watch. If it wasn't for a payment plan I probably wouldn't have been able to get either. The watch was a super deal so glad I had that choice because it would have sold before I would have been able to save the extra. (I walked in with $250)

    So I can't see why detectors wouldn't be a good idea.

    I think that is a great idea as well. Some people cannot drop the big chunk all at once. I I would be interested to hear how it is going after a month or two.

    Re: Layaway

    That's actually how I was able to purchase my new detector that I got a few weeks back (Minelab Explorer XS)... the guy said it was alright if I wanted to break down the cost of the $800 into $200 payments each month. I actually ended up sending him two $300 payments, then a $200 payment for the last one. It really helped out alot, because I still had my other bills & such to pay for. It would definitely help when it comes to machines that are a little more expensive like that...
