The Best Props for Sale Online & What you should know!
In our previous post, Best Props for Sale Online, we had discussed the beginnings of how to seek out the correct propeller business to purchase new propellers (if needed) and/or have your existing props repaired by a certified National Marine Propeller Association (NMPA) company. This is the 3rd input to assist you in selecting propellers on line.
Finding a quality shop online could mean finding one with resources to help guide you through the purchase process and by resources, I mean a real live experienced person, not a computerized “Prop Calculator”. Look for a high level of expertise among trained/experienced propeller technicians. How long have the employees of a certain company been in the business of propeller repair/selling propellers? Look for businesses employing experts in the field having staff members with decades of experience that will make your purchase easier and correct the first time.
However, if you purchase a prop and it is not quite right, see if propeller adjustments or exchanges are a possibility. If you need an adjustment, find out if the company offers adjustments or exchanges on propellers when you find you need it after ordering. Even if there is a small fee ($49.95) attached to adjustments, this level of service is exceptional. Now, the problem is, not all OEM and/or propeller manufactures, businesses allows for an exchange once the prop has been run. At Olympic Propeller we are happy to offer exchanges on our PowerTech Stainless Propellers, so please call to check us out or visit www.ptpropeller.com where props are for sale with Free Shipping and an Exchange Program on stainless propellers.
Always ask: Are they a real Marine Business with a Resell Certificate or Propeller Shop Certified by the National Marine Propeller Association (NMPA)? Hope this has added to the ease of looking for the right propeller business and the most important thing to remember is – Don’t get cheap or expensive propellers, get the Correct Propeller for your boat/motor set up to optimize performance and the cost will be what it is – Have a grrrrrrreat time on the water - The PropTologist
