Please don’t go through any website like this at all without researching the company involved first. There are more suitcase companies than ever on sites like China Direct. A suitcase company is basically nothing but photos on the internet. If it sounds to good to be true, be very careful. There are good deals to be found and Parallel Importing as it is known & can be a great way to secure a bargain. Add in shipping, tax, port charge fees and with something as big as a Husqvarna 4421 and the fact that you have no Warranty means that even if the company you are dealing with is legitimate, the risk is far from over. You might loose a few bucks, or you could save thousands making this sort of deal a gamble. Up to you.

Cheers Mike.

OK that’s good and the odds are in your favour now. If this company is authentic you will save on the deal. Next step is to look at the Husqvarna 4421 model and try and find out what goes wrong with them. I know you said there is a 1 year warranty, but how hard will this be for you to enforce this from another country. International warranty's are legitimate, but you don’t wont to rely on it so see if this Husqvarna model has a good name first. There will be other hidden costs like storage before you arrange a pick up, bank fees to wire your money and if you live inland away from the port of arrival shipping can be expensive. I live in another country but once shipped a car from Chicago to the port of L.A and it was very expensive.

Parts and servicing will not be a problem for you. If you like you can post or PM me the details of the trading company and I’ll give you my thoughts on them, I’m pretty good at finding out about Chinese companies.

Cheers Mike.

well after a lot of thought and reading until my eyes hurt, i am going to stay with a local dealer on this. the one thing that really changed my mind was the return e-mail address - [email protected] a co-worker spotted it, if company has been around that long they should have legitimate e-mail account by now. anyway i just dont feel like gambling with 6,800 rather spend a couple of extra bucks and have dealer behind me. if you are interested the name was jing yu trading company ltd. and yes you are right the shipping can cost you alot but i work for a trucking company so my rate would be good.

thanks for the help.

cahill valley, I had a quick look and from that I can normally tell if they are legitimate or get alarm bells ringing. I got alarm bells my friend. You just made a the right call. That’s not to say that they are a suitcase company, but further investigation would be needed first. I only looked at this for five minutes and found two alarm bells that stops me from looking any further.

Firstly, a lot of suitcase companies use similar name of a successful Chinese enterprise. I Googled Jingyu Trading Company Ltd and two similar names that are legitimate companies showed up, Shanghai Jingyu International Trading Co, LTD and Guangdong Jingyu Trading Co, LTD. They are trying to guide you into believing that there may be a link with one of these other Jingyu Trading Companies. One manufactures chemicals & the other makes clothing. Nothing to do with Powersports.

Secondly, I found your Husqvarna that you were looking at on the China Suppliers website, then I looked in the ‘Company Info Box’ where they boldly state annual turnover 50 to 100 Million USD$. Not bad, but have a look in the member since, it says 2011. Now this only means that the have been a member of “China Supplies” website since 2011, however a company with such a massive turnover would have their own website and yes, a business email. I could not find a stand alone website for this massive company, that’s a big bell right there.

The way I see it, you just saved $6800 so don’t feel bad about not grabbing a bargain.

When you get the Husqvarna, take some photos and post them on here. We would love to here all about it.

Cheers Mike
