Browning Equipment Inc. Informative - Unethical Sales Practices

Review by Hunt Country Living on 2009-06-15
PURCELLVILLE, VIRGINIA -- Browning Equipment has found themselves embroiled in communications with the BBB, various consumer advocacy websites and the VA Dept. of Consumer Affairs purely as a result of their own actions boomeranging on them.

For an example of the type of unprofessionalism and unethical conduct you can expect in sales practices please view the complaint registered with the consumer advocacy web site www.yelp.com. Simply enter the company name of Browning Equipment and you can read about some incredibly shabby experience with regard to the sales of high end mowing equipment !!

For your convenience the text of the aforementioned complaint is following:

" I was pricing a Kubota ZD 323 and Browning was one of the more expensive dealers compared with the Warrenton dealer; however, what was disturbing was when the salesman tried to sell a swapped out unit. I wanted the ZD 323 with the 60" deck. Browning did not have one in stock and wanted to take a ZD 321 and put a 60" deck on it (while selling it for the ZD 323 price). The 321 is not the same and is on a smaller frame and sells for over $2K less and was not designed for a 60" deck. It is not even offered on the 321. The salesman obviously lacked integrity as is like selling a Ford Escort for a Taurus price and telling the customer that it is the same thing. "
