We recently purchased off of Craigslist for $15.00 a Fi-Shock XR-6 Solar Electric Fence Energizer. It had the bucket missing and the wiring had been modified so we called the company. They said if we sent it in for $100 we could have it totally refurbished. So last Monday we sent it off. They said to expect it to take 2 to 3 weeks to repair.
Today UPS drives up. Puzzled I go out and there in the UPS man's arms is a box from Fi-Shock. Excited I carry it in the house and open it up to see what changes were made. To my surprise it was a totally new unit. Disbelieving we contact the company and they said that if they received a unit that they felt would cost to much to repair they replace it with a new unit. AWESOME!
So let's look at the numbers....
Used XR-6 $15.00
Shipping $17.00 (With box purchase)
Refurbish Fee $100.00
When we first looked this unit up it showed to be $457.00. I looked it up today on the Fi-Shock website and it show regular $379 on sale for $343.25. Either way we made a profit. What a blessing!
