Hi,just exploring options as to where to move too next and was pondering wethar anybody has haggled or tried to negotiate with marinas over their moorings fees?? Looking at least a six month minimum term. Surely its worth a go with so many free berths...any success stories out there?:)

Never haggled myself...there might be some on here who have done though.

 

What would interest me is, if a fellow marina moorer (previously Mercia now BWML - Lemonroyd) had negotiated a cheaper rate than the publicised rate (and the one I paid) and then broadcasted it in the foremost waterways forum, what would happen if I went to the marina owners and said 'Why can't I get it at this lower rate'

 

:rolleyes:

 

 

One for the PM system only I guess..

Over the years ( Nothing has changed ) I have found on many an occasion that PROPER money speaks a thousand words.....always has done always will do........ ;)

As a manager of a marina I encounter people after a deal all the time.

 

Personally I stick to my guns the price is the price and as MJG says people talk and this could open a can of worms for a marina.

 

The only time I would think about doing a deal would be if someone was looking to pay 4/5 years upfront and I would price fix so they didnt incur any mooring increases or Vat changes.
