Default Canavac Group Buy

I'm gonna try to organize a group buy for Canavac system with http://www.the-vacmaster.ca/index.html
I stopped by their store today to inquire about group buy pricing and I got a price they can offer if we reach a minimum of 6 ppl.
Of course the more people we can get together, the more they might offer.

So far they gave me pricing for 399LS and 700LS http://www.canavac.com/node/26 at $700 with the Ultra package (German power head)
Right now they also have 700XLS unit, which is same motor and system, except it's a larger power unit body and a longer 20 year warranty.
They said as long as it's still in stock, they can give it to us at same price, but quantity is very limited, so the faster we get this together, the more chance we might have to get bigger unit.

Let me know if you're in, and I will contact them again, just so they remember about the group buy and who it is for.
I told them my name is Martin from Milton, if you want to contact them yourself regarding the group buy.

We would have to make $100 deposit, once we have 6 people with deposit we can go ahead and purchase the unit.

Cana-Vac Model 700LS or 399LS with Ultra Package $700

15 Year Warranty
All Metal Construction
19 Litre Capacity
Dual Intakes
HEPA Filtration
Bag or Bagless
For Homes up to 10,000 Square Feet
Size 12" x 39"

Ultra Package (PKG. B)

30' Crushproof Electric Hose with 3-way Switch
German Wessel Werk Powerhead
5 Level Height Adjustment with Light
2 Sets Stainless Steel Telescopic Wands
Deluxe Natural Bristle Floor Brush
Deluxe Tool Set
Hose Hanger
3 Year Warranty


Update:
Karen will honor any walk in from our forum here as long as they have 700XLS in stock, so you can go right ahead and purchase without group limit.
I picked mine up today, no problems, hope the rest of you can still make it on time before they run out of stock.

I don't get why 339 or 700 are the same price? Shouldn't one be more expensive than the other?

Secondly is the 700 price tag installed or plus tax?

@Juglans

Can you post the reseller you are working with? I saw your post in a few thread and each had a slightly different package/price and has me somewhat confused.

As far as Juglans and his $680 price it's for a different package, he's a bit lost I think in what he's buying.

If you see here he is talking about Delux package that is normally $700, so $20 off is normal walk in price basically.
This group buy is for Ultra package so you get the best power head on market.

Had a problem with my account and couldn't post anything for past few days.

If someone wants to contact me, but has a problem registering account here, you can do it on my email marpotrz@gmail.com.
Also I'm running this on another forum http://www.hawthornevillager.com/php...hp?f=4&t=54843
Deal is still on, till we reach 6 ppl, I will let everyone know when that happens.
Installation cost will have to be discussed with Vacmaster or whoever you pick to do it, or you can even do it yourself.
