Viadrus Hercules Eco, Irish RipOff or Not?
Energy Master Listowel offer the Viadrus Hercules Eco 24Kw Pellet Boiler combo at €6500 including 21% VAT the price includes commissioning and signing off the SEI Grant form. I could not find their price posted on their internet site, but I requested information and I received a printed leaflet with the price clearly stated.
Manco Energy Ltd. East Yorkshire UK offer the same Boiler combo at £2,200 plus VAT. Thats €3188 at todays rates. Add the 21% Irish VAT and that gives you €3858 rounded up to the nearest Euro. The link is:
Irish price of €6500 minus the English price of €3858 gives an your the extra added on of €2642. That a HUGE 69% loading.
I think €2642 is an excessive amount for an hour or two's work in commissioning and signing off a form, an extended guarantee would also not justify that sort of price. What do you think that sort of price loading should be called? Excessive? Gouging? Outrageous?
