The hike on the wholesale price of AC units by 5% to impact clients

Also, we cannot bear a straight loss of 5%

Today, I had a meeting with the wholesale distributor who supplies all of our AC units. The wholesale distributor supplies AC units to all of our branches in the east coast. We have a total of 51 branches. This particular distributor costs us a lot of money every financial quarter. Today’s meeting revealed that they are planning to increase the wholesale price of AC units by 5% from next quarter. That is a sizable increase, which I was expecting. I instantaneously asked for a separate meeting to discuss this matter. The 5% increase wasn’t justified, but during the meeting, they mentioned that the costs will increase over the next year. Currently, they are planning to implement this on AC units, but over time, the hike will also reflect on other products. This means that a regular task, be it repairing or installation, will be costly. This might affect our client negatively. In order to stay afloat in the market, this hike cannot be imposed abruptly. Also, we cannot bear a straight loss of 5%. Someone will have to bear the costs. There is no question of taking money from employees and investors, hence, the process has to be implemented carefully.

Increase in Wholesale prices for ACs by 5% can be a problem

Today, I met with the wholesale distributor that supplies our ACs and other HVAC units.

This particular distributor supplies AC units to every all of our branches on the east coast. We have a total of 51 branches on the east coast. This unique wholesale parts distributor proves to be a major chunk of our expenses every financial year. I met with the representative from the firm today for a business meeting. Surprisingly, I found out that the wholesale prices on AC units will be increased by 5% from next quarter. That is a big hike and I was not expecting this news. I right away asked for a separate meeting to discuss our prices and contract. I wasn’t comfortable with the 5% increase, but when I sat down with the representative, they clearly stated that the cost of AC units will increase soon. Later, they plan to hike the costs for other products over a span of 18 months. This means that regular AC maintenance and installation would cost more than the market rate. Our clients will be helpless, getting impacted negatively with the hike in price. In order to not fall back in the HVAC industry race, we cannot immediately raise our prices that high. We are also not ready to face a 5% cut on our revenues. At the same time, we cannot ask for money from investors and employees. Hence, this process has to be implemented carefully and gradually.

Wholesale prices hiked by 5% from next quarter onwards

Recently, I met with the wholesale distributor that supplies our AC units.

This distributor supplies AC units to all the HVAC branches on the east coast! There are 51 branches on the east coast.

This particular wholesale distributor is one of the largest expenses for us, every fiscal quarter. I met with the representatives from the distributor today for a meeting. I found out that they have planned to hike the wholesale prices on AC units by 5%, starting next quarter. That is a significant hike, which I was not at all anticipating. I requested a separate meeting to discuss the prices and the contract. The 5% increase wasn’t a good idea, but as I sat down with a representative from the Distribution Center during the second meeting, they told us that the decision cost increase by 5% is final and binding. Right now, they are planning this scheme for only AC units in the next quarter. Later, they plan to impose this hike of 5% on different products over the next 18 months. The updated prices will lead to more expenses for the regular AC upgrades and repairing. Our clients will also face the backlash of this decision. We also have to keep up with the HVAC competitors, hence, we cannot just raise our prices that quick. At the same time, we can’t afford a straight loss of 5%. We can’t lend money from employees or investors, and the only option would be to gradually increase the prices of our HVAC products.

Wholesale prices on A/C units to go up by 5% next quarter

We have to keep up with other HVAC companies in the region, hence, we can’t raise the prices abruptly

I met with a wholesale distributor recently, who supplies all types of AC units, and supplies to every east coast HVAC branch. We control around 51 branches on the east coast. This particular distributor costs us a lot each fiscal quarter. I met with the distributor for a regular meeting. I came to know that our wholesale prices on AC units will be increased by 5% from next quarter onwards. That is a significant hike, which was uncalled for. I immediately arranged for a separate meeting to discuss this development and the contract. The 5% increase wasn’t good news for me. In the second meeting with the representative from the Distribution Center, they elaborated on the price hike, which will be effective soon. Right now, they are starting with the AC units in the next quarter, following which, the hike will be imposed on different products in the next 1.5 years. The new prices mean increased cost overheads for the normal AC installations! Our clients are also going to be impacted by this development. We have to keep up with other HVAC companies in the region, hence, we can’t raise the prices abruptly. At the same time, we can’t be fine with a direct 5% drop in our revenues. We can’t possibly take money from our employees or investors, so we will have to raise the prices of our top HVAC products.

Wholesale prices on A/C units are going up 5% next quarter

I met with the wholesale distributor this morning that supplies all of our AC units. The wholesale distributor supplies AC units to every one of our east coast HVAC branches. We have a total of 51 branches on the east coast. This particular wholesale parts distributor is one of our biggest expenses for each fiscal quarter. I met with the distributor this morning for a regular business meeting. I found out that our wholesale prices on AC units are going to be increasing by 5% starting next quarter. That is a huge increase and I was not anticipating the news. I immediately asked for a separate meeting to discuss our prices and contract. The 5% increase did not sit well with me. When I sat down with the representative from the Distribution Center, they explained that all costs are going to be increasing over the next year. They are only starting with the AC units the next quarter. After that, one subset of products will be increasing by 5% over the next 18 months. The new prices will mean more expenses for the average AC installation job. Our customers are going to see some of that expense. We have to keep up with other HVAC companies in the area, so we can’t raise our prices too high. Still, we can’t take a 5% cut on our own. Someone is going to bear those costs as well. We can’t take money from our employees or investors, so we will naturally need to raise the prices on some of our top HVAC products.

Delivery guy for an HVAC company

My friend has the best job. He works as a delivery driver for a renowned HVAC supplier, as this firm does not store a lot of parts. The HVAC parts are ordered dynamically according to requirements. Whenever an employee determines the problems with the HVAC system, they order the required parts from a trusted hardware store! My friend drives to the hardware store to pick up the items, following which, he delivers them to the set destination. The process helps save time with HVAC repairs and installation. Instead of the technicians having to get the parts themselves, they can continue with work, while someone else gets the parts for them. My best friend normally doesn’t get tips for his deliveries but enjoys a handsome salary from the company. He also gets medical coverage from the firm, which includes dental and vision. He also is entitled to paid leaves every year. I would love to work in this profile for an HVAC company, driving around throughout the town. But, I have been involved in a few motor accidents, and my driving record very poor. I cannot even afford insurance. The owner of the HVAC firm talked to my friend, stating that I won’t get the job due to a poor track record. Hence, it is pointless looking forward to this job. I am not even eligible for the position of a pizza delivery driver due to all the parking tickets, speeding tickets, and accidents. But, I can work for my parents at our restaurant.

Delivery guy for an HVAC company

My best friend has a pretty satisfying job.

He works as a delivery driver for an HVAC company! This renowned HVAC firm does not stock a lot of components in their warehouse.

The components are ordered according to the requirement for every task. When a professional understands the problem with the heating, A/C, or ventilation equipment, they order the parts from a nearby hardware store. My friend then directly heads towards the hardware store to pick up the essentials and gets to the site as early as possible. This method is supposed to introduce fluidity to the upgrade process for all kinds of Heating & AC gigs. This process doesn’t require the professionals to leave the place for components, as they can continue with the job while my friend gets the parts to them. He doesn’t receive any tips for his delivery driving, however, he gets a nice salary. He also has benefits like medical, dental, and even vision, along with paid holidays. I want this job at the same company, driving HVAC components all around town! Unluckily, I have been in a few accidents. My driving record is poor, and I can barely afford insurance. The owner of the HVAC firm told my friend that I won’t qualify for the job with a bad driving record. There is no point in hoping for an interview. I can’t even get a job for delivering pizzas because of all the speeding tickets, accidents, & parking tickets. But thankfully, I can work for mom and dad at the restaurant.

Driving for an HVAC firm

Hence, there is no point in giving an interview for this gig

My neighbor has an enjoyable job. He is a delivery driver for a major HVAC dealer, as this particular company does not stock a lot of components. The HVAC components are ordered depending on requirements, however, when the technicians understand the problem with the heater, AC, or ventilation equipment, they order the required components from the local store. My neighbor drives directly to the hardware store and picks up the items, just to deliver them to the worksite. The process is supposed to expedite the installation process. Instead of the HVAC employees having to leave the site for parts, they can continue to work while the parts are on the way. My neighbor doesn’t get any tips for his work but gets a good salary from the firm. The company also offers medical coverage, which includes dental and vision. He also gets paid time off every year. I would want to work for the same firm, driving all over the city. But I have been in a few motor accidents. My driving record is unacceptable and I am in no shape to afford insurance. The owner of the HVAC firm told our neighbor that I do not qualify for this position due to my poor track record. Hence, there is no point in giving an interview for this gig. I can’t even get work that requires delivering pizzas for Dominos, because of the speeding tickets, accidents, and parking tickets. It’s a good thing I can work for our mom and dad at the restaurant.

My best friend has a nice job.

He works as a delivery driver for a busy HVAC firm.

This unique HVAC corporation does not stock a lot of parts. The HVAC parts are ordered for dynamically according to requirements. When a specialist determines the problem with the heating, A/C, or the ventilation equipment, they order the required parts from the local hardware store. My friend drives directly to the hardware store to get the required items and delivers them right to the worksite. The process supposedly streamlines the installation process for every task. Instead of the HVAC technicians leaving the worksite to retrieve components, they can continue to work while the parts are on the way. My best friend does not receive any tips for driving, but she gets a nice salary, along with coverage for medical, dental, and vision. She gets paid time off each year. I would love to work for the same company, driving HVAC components across the city. But unfortunately, I have been in a few motor accidents and my driving record is way below par, and on top of that, I can barely afford insurance. The owner of the HVAC corporation told our friend that I wouldn’t qualify for the gig at this company with such a driving record. It doesn’t make sense to go for an interview. I can’t even get a job of delivering pizzas, because of all the speeding tickets, accidents, and parking tickets. It’s a superb thing I can work for my parents at the restaurant.
