PostSubject: where to buy TV   Tue Jan 19, 2016 5:15 pm

My 5 yrs old 50 inch LG TV died. Power surge/brownout killed it !
It was plugged into "surge protector pwr bar"!?
Need ideas/advise where to buy next 40 incher..
what brand?
1/ Fort Lauderdale /Miami
PRO ; CHEAP,
CON: shipping w Seacor then VAT + $$$

2/ Nassau;
PRO cheaper than Rocksound,
CON: trip to Nassau, shipping via ship or air to Governors



3/ Eleuthera - Rock Sound? Governors?
PRO: personal pick up in Rock-sound,
CON: most expensive, not too much choice..

kindest regards

(heard a horror story about Canuc schlepping his TV from Toronto, paid west jet, then VAT, Duty in Nassau, schlepped it with Southern-air to Governors and when he FINALLY plugged it in his house in socket-IT DIDN'T WORK!)

Carried a TV from Canada? What a dumb-ass! Take the ferry to Nassau, go to Master Technicians, buy a TV and load it into the car, ferry back to Eleuthera.

Becks thanks for the idea

I was thinking to hire a "middleman " in Nassau for $50 to buy my TV and then ship it via ferry to elu

In my ten years on island I never used the ferry...
are u suggesting to board car on ferry then drive it in Nassau to/from store and back on ferry to elu?
what's the cost for car + passenger  to/from elu?
wouldn't it be cheaper taking ferry and then taxi to/from store?..

kind regards

Yes...it would be cheaper...but you are going to have to overnight in Nassau......or alternativly....you could fly one-way to Nassau....get taxi ....go buy tv, go to dock, take ferry to Current,Spanish Wells and catch ride to your house or car.   But my original idea was once in Nassau to buy tv, you could load up your car with groceries and stuff for your house that you can't find in Eleuthera.what part of Eleuthera do you live on.

You can just call most Nassau businesses and order and pay over the phone.  If they don't take credit card, then you can deposit the $ on their bank account.  Then they send it over on the boat.  Delivery to dock is usually free, you just pay the boat for shipping when it gets here.  I've done it for a deep freeze and for an upright side by side fridge and for a ductless a/c.  No need for a Nassau middleman... you just need to know what you want.
