Title: Source for Trojan parts with good discounts off RRP
Post by: Paul on September 13, 2011, 20:49:43 PM
Heh guys, I've recently been buying some Trojan parts for another trailer.  After a whole pile of ringing around, the best prices came from here:

Millars Custom Trailers

http://www.trademe.co.nz/Members/Listings.aspx?member=3886599 (http://www.trademe.co.nz/Members/Listings.aspx?member=3886599)

Pickup is about 15km SE from Hampton Downs near Hamilton.  Shipping prices were pretty good too.
He might not always pickup the phone, but there is a message service for when he's too busy.

Trojan gear is really good, but RRP is outrageous - this guy brings it down to 'acceptable' prices.

Kwakah?  I got some brake hoses from him.  It's just a suburban house and there's loads of trailers scattered around in various states of dis-repair.  Not sure if all the bits for sale are new.  Also tried to pass off two 'single-axle hose kits', as the 'tandem-axle hose kit' listed (- they're not the same - important bits are missing).  Jeff, the other gear you've bought from there, is it new?

The big stuff (axles, hubs, calipers, wheels/tyres, etc), were cheaper from the place listed a few messages above.

Everything i've bought was new and worked perfectly well, have also bought a hydraulic brake over-ride coupling off him new in box for $150 when the couple other places i tried were $280 :o exactly the same part. There must be a big markup on the stuff and big companies get a big discount while the average Joe Bloggs gets ripped >:( 00-

I think you will find it has Trojan stamped on it, but is prob not genuine.

 aAe, if it is stamped it is a copy, trojan is cast into most of the stuff when it's genuine. we deal with Trojan, Trailequip/Trailparts and Alko at work.
